Black man convinces 200 KKK members to stop being racist

Post by eddie on Wed Dec 28, 2016 6:35 pm

A BLACK man from Chicago has managed to tear down parts of the Ku Klux Klan from the inside, by making friends with Klan members.
The 58-year-old blues musician has spent three decades travelling around the US, infiltrating the white supremacist cult and befriending up to 200 white KKK members.
He has since documented his mission in a book entitled ‘Klan-destine Relationships: A Black Man’s Odyssey in the Ku Klux Klan’.
In the book, Davis recalled meeting a Grand Dragon – a high-ranking Klan member – called Roger Kelly, in Maryland.
‘I was very well prepared for the meeting in terms of knowledge of my topic,’ he said. ‘I have just about every book written on the Klan and I’ve read them all.
‘In fact, I know more about the KKK than most Klan members know about their own organisation.
‘Knowledge, information, wit, and the way you disseminate these attributes can often prove to be a more disarming weapon against an enemy or someone with whom your ideology is in conflict than violence or lethal weapons..............

Wow. What a great story.
Just shows you catch more with honey, not vinegar.

Honey is probably what they will pour over him before they tie him to an ant hole.

Sorry the link doesn't seem to work for you, it works for me okay.

Well I like feel-good stories and this sure was a good story.
