Carrie thank your for the article. Very upsetting that an interracial couple would be attacked in 2013. When I first started dating my partner, lots of people told us we were a great couple, 11 years later they still think the same thing - he's white and I'm biracial - Korean & African American.

WOW is right! But seriously, did anyone REALLY think that some sort of truce, or an answer to their problems would be reached?? REALLY??

Wow, is right!
That thing about liking to be thought of as an outlaw is interesting.
It is an aside, but guess where Dick the Cheney lives...yup, Caspar Wy.!

The (black) head of the NAACP comes forward first to request a personal meeting. The (white) Klansman arrives and departs with a phalanx of security. It appears that the "superior race" (to use their own self-valuation) spends life scared witless, and all the true courage belongs to the blacks. The original march on Washington conveyed the same message. But no one mentions it.

I can understand the logic behind this. The Klan, as the BNP, are looking for political relevance and are making themselves part of diplomatic processes. These are interesting times.

Simply tragic that the KKK is still allowed to even exist!
Thank for posting Carrie.
