FACES OF HATE IN THE 21ST CENTURY… UNCENSORED PHOTOS OF KU KLUX KLAN MEMBERS

Anthony’s Karen’s behind the scenes photos of the Ku Klux Klan shows a glimpse into a secretive racist brotherhood that most of us have (hopefully) never seen. I know first hand how these individuals have terrorized this country for decades, so it is interesting to see how they interact with each other when they are not trying to start race riots or rob banks – or steer the country’s politics from within. What disturbs me the most is seeing how the adults totally indoctrinate their kids with their inaccurate and fucked up worldview…

Karen tells FotoEvidence

“I think a lot of the credibility I’ve earned also stems from my basic philosophy that you need to give some of yourself in order to receive anything back. I spend time with people, I listen to what they have to say, and I treat each person as an individual. I don’t have to believe what they believe, but whenever I’m in someone’s space, I feel I’m obliged to observe without judgment.That’s not to say I wouldn’t intervene if I felt a situation called for it, but I choose to observe moment to moment and simply take in what I see and experience without presumption or pretext.”

A Ku Klux Klan Labor Day gathering in Arkansas on Saturday, September 1, 2007. Members and supporting Klan realms from five different states came together for a three-day weekend of racial unity.

The gathering included BBQ’s, games, fellowship, an award ceremony and a Klan naturalization. A historical cannon was fired every hour on the hour during daylight hours, until local neighbors complained. Saturday evening closed with a cross lighting ceremony which, according to Klan beliefs, dispels darkness and ignorance. Due to a statewide burn ban, the lighting was done with Christmas tree lights.

More often than not, truth and comfort are antagonistic bedfellows, and as they should be, should we refuse to see the world and humanity as it is. But it is only from that place of truth that we can walk forward, in whatever capacity, and deal with what is, rather than the illusion of what we want it to be. Simple or complex, masked or unmasked, both individuals within and outside of a group dynamic, such as the Ku Klux Klan or white separatists, should be seen in the light of day, and they will be who they are, with or without our judgment. Society can't have it both ways; we can't pick and choose who has the enviable right to free speech. It's everyone's right. Disliking someone different from you is not a rights violation; it's lost opportunity.

At her busiest, Momma Ruth was sewing one robe a day on average and could work 70 to 94 hours a week. After having two strokes, she’s had a difficult time keeping up that pace and has since slowed down production.

A confrontation immediately following a rally hosted by The Mississippi White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan at the Lee county courthouse in Tupelo, Mississippi on Saturday, October 20th, 2007. The protest was against illegal immigration and local sex offenders, and supported putting prayers back in school. The rally included several Klan groups, including the Brotherhood of the Klans, Georgia Knightriders, Bayou Knights, MKA and the International Knights. The last time the Klan made any major appearance in Tupelo was in the 1970's. The Klan marched down Main Street with the United States National Guard protecting citizens on either side.
