The New Ku Klux

Between 1865 and 1965, 2400 African Americans were lynched.  It is estimated that two or three blacks were lynched each week.

The cause of the boom was the Ku Klux Klan.

Established in 1866, there were no uniform rules of the orgnization, so they went by their own rules, to eradicate all of those who wanted equality in America, mainly African Americans.lynching.jpg

The Klan in its original form has mostly died away.  But there is a new generation of the Klan that is much more ruthless than the first.  Instead of white hoods, they wear hoodies.  Instead of burning crosses, they wear them iced out around their necks.  Instead of white males from suburbia, they are black men from the hood.

And instead of ropes, they use guns.

As a people, we need to stop this.  As a people, we need to make a conscious effort to put away the guns so we can once again rise and come together like we once did during the Civil Rights era.

Because if we don’t, we aren’t any better than the Klan.

Because if we don’t, the eradication will continue on.

    Salute to you for giving the evidence of the parallel behavior of a race that many black men have mimic since they were first ported to this country. If we look closely to African Americans through out history it has been a complete carbon copy of the less desirable attributes of another race, because of this, black history has shown a continued assignation of the black man by the black man through his entire alien status in witch was adopted by most African Americans today. I look back in history can see that because of the alien status forced upon them there was never no since of belong .Just existence making up a culture that really esteems from the diversity of what was here when they docked. This explains the reason of the fall of African Americans Unity as well as lost direction through out history .it is a horrific reality to fear the image which is suppose to represent strength, unity and protection in a dark ally and have to wonder if you will survive the passing but lack of who you are what you really represent as taken it’s toll today.
    I stand in agreement with you and united in a plea for Unity!!!

    It’s sad really that young blacks to not know what they’re doing to themselves. It’s mostly because they are uneducated about where we’ve come from and what we’ve been through. Until we, as a people, make a conscious effort to first educate OURSELVES, then we as an older generation will be able to educate the ones that follow us.
