Flyers For KKK Wrapped Around Oklahoma Newspapers

The racist organization the Ku Klux Klan has been wrapping filers around weekend newspapers for the past three weekends. The Sunday editions of newspapers that have been distributed in Ada, Oklahoma to subscribers have been tampered with. The advertisements have flyers that say things like “God Bless America and the Ku Klux Klan” and police say they are being added after the newspapers are delivered.

South central Oklahoma is not very receiving of the KKK’s messages. The newspaper distributors are appalled by the action. The publisher Lone Beasley does not want people to think that the newspaper is allowing the Klan to advertise with them. It seems that this practice is well known and has been used in numerous cities around the United States. With this years election coming up and a man of mixed origin is the lead, the Klan has stepped up their campaign.

This is a sad but very accurate portrayal of the underbelly of the country. There are people in the United States of America that are so incredibly ignorant and uninformed that these flyers pose a real threat. If the next president of the United State in not white there may be major racial battles that rage.

The leader of the Ku Klux Klan said that they will continue to use newspapers to get their message out. He has said in the past that he has no concerns about a lawsuit being filed against the group. The newspapers are not being altered in anyway and receiving a flyer from the Klan is not considered a hate crime. One city in North Carolina took the Klan to court over using newspapers for distribution and the Klan agreed to discourage their people from using that particular paper.

As the election nears people are sure to find more and more racist material from the Klan in their newspapers. There is a great fear among some that a man that is not white will be taking over the seat of the president of the Untied States. Some are willing to go to great extremes to insure that this does not happen.

The United State of America was built on racist attitudes and beliefs. The country was constructed on the backs of black slaves who were forced into unpaid labor for hundreds of years. The racial divide that defines this country will be hard to erase. Even though the people that are willing to be part of the Klan and listen to their message may seem small, there are a great number of people that have beliefs that are milder but along the same lines. Some racism is obvious while other forms of racism are low grade.

Who is actually reading the flyers that the Klan is distributing? That is the question that everyone should ask themselves. How many people are getting these flyers and wondering if the Klan sounds like a perfect way for them to show their patriotism? Probably more than we would like to believe.

    I also agree that the KKK is a terrorist organization and has been labeled as such by some individual states. However, white-American run terrorist groups do not get the same treatment as non-white or non-American terrorist groups. Look at Tim Mcvay. Obviously part of a large terrorist organization that exists within our borders. But Timmy took the hit while the whole lot of ruffians he ran with continue to run free!
