    If they wanted a non-racist neighborhood watch program, they wouldn't associate it with the KKK. It's just plain dumb.

    Apologists start in 3....2....1...
    How many KKK apologists are there on this board? I can think of maybe one person who may do so.

    Just giving another perspective.

    While Klan representative Frank Ancona said he didn’t know whether the fliers were distributed as part of an organized effort by the group (as opposed to, y’know, invisible, magical racist elves)
    Though I rather dislike the klan, this bit of commentary is rather strange and just highlights what is wrong with much of the alternative "news" content on the internet.

    Maybe "magical racist elves" is the KKK's name for the lower ranking members.

    Generally the KKK as an organization is dead and it is just the random nobody seeking attention that it even appears to exist at all. HOWEVER, around here the Zimmerman case has a huge effect in relation to those of KKK family heritage and thought.

    What the Zimmerman case did was convince people to NOT participate further in traditional Neighborhood Watch as the liabilities are too great and the demands too high - including to abandon your constitutional right to having a firearm for self defense - and that being a member of Neighborhood Watch will be used against you. Basically nearly everyone dropped out. Those tended to be Seniors driving around in their cars watching their neighborhood (and chatting with people they know), most of those retirees from the Northeast and North Midwest.

    That void has been filed by the children and grandchild of the KKK - which was extremely powerful here in the past - and a reason the population over 95% white. This was an area where for 100+ years African-Americans were brutalized and terrorized (and murdered). Old men driving around in their Buick, SUV or Cadillac has been replaced by backwoods men driving around in their 4X4s with a 3X5 Confederate flag flying off a pole in the back. They have no intentions of phoning 911 if they see "trouble" - which could be actual potential or real illegal activities OR "the wrong sort of people who don't belong here."

    NOTHING good ever could have come out of the Zimmerman case and the raging race-baiting of it no matter how it turned out, when at no time did the case ever have anything to do with race. GZ by his real personal history is more documentable as not a racist than nearly everyone on this forum. Basically a candle that otherwise did not exist (claiming TM was a racial murder) was lite, and then for political motives everyone threw gasoline on it and continue to do so. Inherently, people then are going to continue to get burned.

    As for the OP story? Anyone can hand out fliers calling themselves an organization - and trying to capitalize on the GZ case - like countless others are doing from all perspectives.

If I was black, I'd think very carefully before I walked in any white neighborhood where the KKK was providing neighborhood watch. But maybe that's just me.

    And whatever else it was, it was hardly a 'standard self-defense case'. Except maybe in the South.
    And if you are white, be careful walking thru a black ghetto or projects. It has always been the way for white people. Even more, if you are white be careful walking thru remote, isolated rural Native American ("Indian") reservation land. And, if you are white, be careful walking thru Latino ghettos and impoverished areas. And if you are white, be careful walking anywhere in Mexico, most of Central and South America, Africa, and the Middle East.

    No, stalking and killing black kids is blatant race baiting.

    Yeah, the difference is that if you kill a white person under those circumstances, you go to jail if they catch you. If the colors are reversed, you get hailed as a hero of the Conservative Right.
