    From NY to Texas, KKK recruits with candies and fliers [W:16]

    From NY to Texas, KKK recruits with candies and fliers - CNN.com

    (CNN) -- Carlos Enrique Londoño laughs at the Ku Klux Klan recruitment flier recently left on the driveway of his suburban New York home. It's unlikely the group would accept him."I'm Colombian and dark-skinned," said Londoño, a painter and construction worker who has lived in Hampton Bays on Long Island for 30 years.
    The flier was tucked into a plastic bag along with a membership application, the address for the KKK national office in North Carolina, a list of beliefs and three Jolly Rancher candies.

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

    I know this is wrong, but it makes me laugh because of the picture my mind is playing of how such a thing would work out, not to mention the general creepiness of it.

    I just imagine this old white guy (sort of like Mr. Herbert from Family Guy) walking up to people offering them candy in this really creepy voice, asking if they want to join their club.

    I think those already predisposed to the views of the KKK would be attracted to any recruiting tactic. Fortunately, the overwhelming majority of Americans find the KKK repugnant.

    The KKK hardly exists anymore..... Yea there are "white pride" organizations but they are so sparatic and aren't even associated with the KKK....

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

    I've never seen anyone talk about "white pride" who didn't blame every other race for the lack of white pride.

    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.
