cowsspinach: I must live under a rock. I've never witnessed such things and it's just so...creepy.


My high school had a diverse make up.  It was in a small town that had a pretty good University for some odd reason.  Because of this, we had the best school system in the area.  We had doctors and professors kids, so we had some foreign (mostly from India, but I think we had a few Asian students as well) kids.  But, we were also located next to a cornfield, so you had farmers kids (like me) and poor rural kids as well.  There was a group of kids who had the jacked up trucks with the rebel flags and the clothing to match.  While I think most of it was just for shock value, there were a few "true racists" that walked the halls.

I was kind of caught up in the mix of all this.  I was a good student (was always on the honor roll) so I took the more advanced classes with the kids that had educated parents, but I also took vocational agriculture so i was in there with some of the racists (who weren't really from families of farmers, but thought they could be because they lived in a trailer next to a farm or something).  I'm just glad my parents were more educated and weren't from a lineage of hate for hates sake.

/you know how hard it is to make friends when you are a smart computer geek who lives on a farm (and loves the fact that he lives on a farm)?

fireclown: CSB time:  Frederick, Maryland was festooned with Klan fliers yesterday AM.  They were in plastic baggies, to protect them from the elements, and put under windshield wipers for about four blocks around Baker park.  I think they might have been put there by KKK protesters who didn't get to protest at Gettysburg, which is about 15 miles north.

I took a pic on my phone, might post it later.

These are very cool. Thanks for finding the site!

I'm looking through the white nationalists, and they just look... Normal. Kind of dumb, but normal. The KKK stuff looks much more like poverty than racism (as many have said). The white nationalists look more middle-class.

Anderson.  It happens in Anderson.  Western portion of the state, just a stone's throw south of Greenville.  County of Anderson, not city.  Hell, drive out on highway 25 towards Clemson and stop at the "Dixie Outpost" store.  You can probably pick up flyers to get recruited.

Also, I'm guessing you might get gathering or two in what I call the "Central Nothing".  When you're headed to Columbia and there is nothing but trees for about an hour on either side of lexington county, that's the "Central Nothing".

Nathan Robb (on the left) once drove me and me friends up to the Missouri state line to buy booze when I was under 21.  He acknowledged his dad was in the Klan and he was a part of it, too.  He listened to rap music and spoke of how the Klan was a moderate organization now.  They did things like lobby Congress to have the bonus points you get on your SAT for being a minority done away with.  I did get the distinct feeling I was getting the full salesman treatment, though.

CSB time:

Sometime back around 1999 when my wife and I were first dating she was working at a mid-sized employment law firm in Birmingham, Alabama.  One of her white clients called her in a panic mid day on a Thursday because the client had just learned that her good-for-nothin' son had told the local Klavern they could hold a cross-burnin' that weekend on land the family owned in Chilton County (Chilton County puts the RED in redneck).

My wife agreed to go down that afternoon and file papers in the county courthouse to enjoin them from performing the cross burning.  As she was packing up to leave the owner of the firm she worked for (a black Yankee) came out with his briefcase and announced he'd be riding down with her in case she needed protection.  She then had to politely decline and tell him that I was on my way to drive her down and had just bought new ammo for my pistol, so she felt she would be fine.  To this day I'm not sure if he realized what he was offering to do was the opposite of helping.

Latinwolf: Englebert Slaptyback: 'They live normal lives, some with stronger racial overtones than others. There is wealthy and poor, intelligent and unintelligent... just like anywhere else.'


Really? I didn't see any of these in TFA. The nicest least bad dwelling was still made of concrete blocks and treated lumber. All the rest were strongly indicative of lower economic class.

True but consider this, would wealthier people have allowed him to take pictures of themselves?  The type of people shown in the pictures would have appeared on Jerry Springer for the attention, the wealthier bunch, no.


There are "wealthy" groups of all kinds, KKK included. Money doesn't make you sophisticated, intellectual or spiritual.

As an aside....what does ANY group hope to gain with dress, flag or paint? I'm talking to you nationalists, sports team enthusiasts and those who stridently differentiate yourself by dots on your forehead, hijabs, or crosses around your necks.

The problem is we focus on the difference, not the similarity, and proceed to one up the other. Which only leads to destruction of one team, survival of the other. It's interesting how we go to great lengths to manufacture "differences" and rivalries between, say, Kansas and Missouri football teams. Those kids are all the same. But we gotta have a RIVAL, don't we, to fulfill those urges. Pretend war. I do enjoy the tailgates, though...

No, i have no problem with Liberals picking on the Klan.  But you have to show just as much levity on the other side when a bunch of thugs shoot each other.  According to a Liberal, the White guys are disgusting, the thugs are a victim of the system.  Can't have it both ways.  A little equality in your disgust is what most ask for.

I don't call you a racist to make you "cower", it was an observation. In threads about black criminals there is no limit to the number of clowns such as yourself making comments about blacks predisposition to crime and our "culture". No one is in the thread saying, "b-b-but, the Klan does it too". You're looking for equality in our opinions but you are the only one throwing off the balance, champ. Don't worry about what I look like. you should be more concerned with how you appear to the average lurker who is seeing you vigorously defend the rights of the Klan to be backwards dumbasses by arguing that there are blacks who commit crimes and complaining that Fark isn't racist enough for you.
