Barack Obama Receives Threats From KKK
The KKK aren't too happy about the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States, some of the writing on their website is vague but much of it is threatening:
First of all, Mr. Robb argues in a posting for his blog that also appears on the KKK’s website that Mr. Obama is “the country’s first mulatto president,” and is not really black. That may be a surprising position coming from a hate group that for more than a century has railed against the dangers of miscegenation, but the KKK appears to regard Mr. Obama as something other than black in both a racial and a cultural sense.
In a lengthy rant on the Klan's official website, the white supremacist said: "We are in a race war."
The Ku Klux Klan website "welcomed" Obama's election because "it could mean an awakening of our spirit and blood".
Search terms for 'kkk obama' are really high right now, here's an article looking at why:
For example, among the most popular search terms are “obama antichrist” and “KKK Obama”. Here the KKK one seems to be most disturbing given the fact that KKK members called for a race war if Barack Obama was elected.
Don't let the haters get you down, there's a great article here about how important Barack Obama's election really is:
Anyone who has witnessed the entrenched racism in vast parts of America will know what an astonishing achievement the election of a black president is.
It seems more of a seismic shift than the fall of the Berlin Wall, the end of apartheid, even man landing on the moon. That was a symbol of a giant leap for mankind. This is the leap for real. And nobody saw it coming.
