First off, it was 'reputed' he was in the Klan. Secondly, so? If a bunch of ignorant racists want to wear white sheets on their head, that's their business isn't it? As a Southerner, I disagree with everything the Klan stands for, hate how they have tried to twist the history of the South, and despise them for misusing the flags my ancestors fought under.
But it has not been proven that he committed murder and you're already ready to hang him. I know 'conservatives' are apparently doing all they can to rewrite the intent and meaning of the Constitution with some of the bills that are currently in Congress but until then he is still innocent until proven guilty and judged by a group of his peers. Or do we just need to get away from trial by jury and leave it up to the uninformed opinion, based on no facts BTW, of LauraleeBraswell to decide if the man lives or dies? That'll be fair < /sarcasm>
Just let us know will ya?
In 1964, the Klan was more than a bunch of idiots wearing white hoods.
They were a terrorist organisation.
