    And being proud of being "white" is just about the dumbest thing possible to take pride in. It's not even pride in your heritage, because you can have all the European blood you want, but only a little bit of non-European blood makes you non-white. It's being proud of something you're not. I'm proud of my heritage, white and non-white alike, but I'm not proud of the fact that I look kinda like some people whose culture is nothing like mine.
    No point in worrying over what you can't control, eh?

    I've never actually met a "white pride" person, only read these notions online at Stormfront and etc. But what I've always suspected is that the one and only thing these poor limited souls have going for them is their skin color. And a handy excuse for one's own lack of achievement, irrespective of one's race, is to blame the _______'s (insert group of your choice).

    Are people actually "lured" into the KKK with candy?????

    I am not sure if it wise for a news agency to report that a racist and former terrorist organization is recruiting people. Its practically free advertisement for the group.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Also don't confuse "white pride" with hatred of non-whites.

    The question isn't that difficult to answer.
    Which question? Post #13 about 'white pride world wide'?
    Lemme tell you something, laddybuck, if you're promoting 'white pride', you're promoting racism. Plain and simple. 'White culture' and 'black culture' and 'hispanic culture' are artificial constructs created to simplify the work of people who have to deal with difficult social situations. I'm proud of my ethnic heritage (though I couldn't justify that pride) but that pride has nothing to do with skin colour. A Spaniard, a Scotsman, a Norwegian, a Greek, they're all white but there's no common heritage, no 'white pride' between them. That sh*t's only for racists.

    Ku Klux Klan - Facts & Summary - HISTORY.com

    The article details the three "surges" in the KKK during the 1870's, 1920's and 1960's.
    Are we in the midst of a historical trend and the 4th surge?

    I've never had any use for the "radical Republicans", who had no use for President Lincoln and vice-versa.
    Lincoln even had to form his own National Union party in 1864 to break from them.

    One can only imagine a President Lincoln running Reconstruction instead of the "radical Republicans".
    The causes of the first surge sound eerily familiar to what I see today, though today's "possible surge" is no longer centralized in the South.
    We constantly see threads today defending secession.

    Unfortunately for Southerners in the past, the KKK has been based there as well as in Indiana,
    and this post in no way indicts Southerners nor Hoosiers of any era for this.

    The peak of the second surge during the 1920's movement, reaching over 4 million for an all-time high,
    has its roots in opposing Roman Catholics, Jews, immigration and organized labor.
    Sound familiar?

    The third peak during the 1960's had its roots in opposing civil rights, once again an issue today.

    The scary thing to me is that the reasons for all three surges seem to be coming together today in a "perfect storm".
    One that I believe started with President Clinton who was derided as the first "Black" President back then.

    And once again, in no way does this post try to lay blame to any political persuasion for the KKK,
    though my posting history on this issue is not without flame.


    During times like these, I reach back to my all-time favorite movie, Remember the Titans.
    I almost feel like renting it again and breaking it down like football film, that's how great every scene is.
    As a retired Chem/Physics teacher and Air Force brat, I feel fortunate to have been able to live a multi-cultural/non-sexist life .

    That is why it was a terrible idea, as written. People shouldn't be allowed to say anything they want, that's just ridiculous.
