NAACP Makes History By Having a Sit-Down With the KKK

What's Going On

By Barry Burch Jr.

Meetings between the Crips and Bloods are impressive in their own right, but the NAACP and Ku Klux Klan meeting – now that’s one for the history books, or is it?  Leaders from both of the well-known organizations met on Saturday in Casper, Wyoming, to address the recent violence being inflicted upon black men in the community as well as the group’s distribution of its KKK pamphlets.

The president of the Casper branch of the NAACP, Jimmy Simmons, reportedly reached out to John Abarr of the United Klans of America, according to the Casper Star-Tribune.  Abarr made first contact in June, but the two could not meet until ground rules were laid down, more specifically, a sure agreement that there be heavy security.

Undoubtedly, the meeting also dealt with a slew of traditional racially driven topics, including the KKK’s interest in seceding from the union, segregation, and violence against black men.  Abarr admitted a noticeable rise in membership following the election of President Obama.  He also confessed his reason for joining the infamous organization.

“I like it because you wear robes, and get out and light crosses, and have secret handshakes,” Abarr gushed, according to the Star-Tribune. “I like being in the Klan — I sort of like it that people think I’m some sort of outlaw.”

Abarr, who sounds like a pre-teen in Wonder Land, claims his excitement does not reach violence against black men.  He even said his particular branch of the KKK is too conservative for some.  Abarr proudly asserted that he likes to “recruit really radical kids, then calm them down after they join.”

What a character…

The historic meeting goes to show that no matter how oppressed a people, no matter how beaten, disparaged and forgotten; some will still succumb to nonviolent dealings with the enemy in order to further advance their political agenda.
