Default NAACP meeting with KKK in Wyoming believed a first

7:22 pm, Tuesday, September 3, 2013

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A meeting between a Wyoming chapter of the NAACP and an organizer for the Ku Klux Klan is believed to be the first of its kind.

The Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/17BcfVR ) reports that the meeting between Casper NAACP President Jimmy Simmons and John Abarr, a KKK organizer from Great Falls, Mont., took place at a Casper hotel over the weekend.

The Southern Poverty Law Center and the United Klans of America said Tuesday that the meeting is a first.

Simmons asked for the meeting following reports that KKK literature was being distributed in Gillette, about 130 miles north of Casper.

Abarr said he knows nothing about the literature or any beatings.

After the meeting, Abarr applied for membership to the Casper NAACP. But Abarr says nobody from the NAACP was asked to join the KKK because members have to be white.

I don't know what they're hoping to accomplish with that. Can anyone really see this sort of conversation going on?

NAACP Guy: "You're right, us black people are inferior and should know our place."

KKK Guy: "Actually, I think you guys can be alright and the character of a man is what matters rather than the color of his skin."



... yeah.

Unless you consider a klan member joining the naacp.

the kkk's new motto is that they're not racist... that's the world we live in... they're just proud of being white... not about hating people...

that's color-blind racism... which so many people engage in...
