The Ku Klux Klan has resurfaced in Arkansas with a new billboard message. The KKK is an organization that was founded in 1866 and is primarily based on racism and white supremacy, but this time the message isn’t so explicit; it’s just an advertisement for a BBQ restaurant. But the problem isn’t just the KKK; there are many other racist groups in America and around the world that are still incredibly active. In America, these groups have gotten more and more vocal, making it seem like racism is more of a part of our society than ever.
The group, called Kountry Klub, claims to be a non-profit organization that raises money for children with cancer. They’ve received a lot of media attention because they’re getting hundreds of thousands of dollars a year through donations from their supporters. Unfortunately, that’s a big red flag at a time when so much is going on in the world and people need to see that charity isn’t just an act of kindness.If the group had done a little more research, they undoubtedly would have found out that there are plenty of resources for children with cancer.
It’s not just the Kountry Klub that is in need, it’s other charities around the country too. Because of this, the Kountry Klub was completely unprepared to respond when they received a request for help from a young mother in Nebraska.A man named Joe Jones, a father himself, was diagnosed with Leukemia in June of 2011. His daughter, McKenna Jones, needed surgery after her appendix ruptured.
The surgery was scheduled for September 2012, but McKenna’s Mom said that there would be enough time to prepare for her surgery. Little did McKenna’s Mom know that McKenna would be diagnosed with cancer shortly after her surgery. This is not common, and it was something that McKenna’s Mom was not prepared for at all. McKenna’s Mom said that she was surprised when the doctor told her that McKenna had cancer, but they were going to treat it as best they could. McKenna’s Mom said that she cried when the doctor told her, and she had no idea what to do or say at that point.
KKK in the News
Many groups have risen up to protest the KKK, including the Charlottesville mayor, who said that he would not tolerate their violence and hatred. Trump also made a statement about how his administration would defend free speech.
Explaining the History of Ku Klux Klan
The Ku Klux Klan is best known for its history of lynching African-Americans and other minority groups. The KKK is a white supremacist organization that has been in existence since the mid-1800s. It was founded as a “fraternal order” on Christmas Day 1865 in Tennessee by six men who are said to have felt persecuted because they were being attacked, beaten, arrested, and abused for their race.
Can a society really be made up of just people?
One argument that is often made by the hate group is that they are just one part of a society, and that if people just left them alone to do their own thing, they would leave them alone. They claim to be one of the few groups in America that practices racial equality, and say they don’t need to be forced out by outside forces. In reality, the KKK has been around for over 150 years and it’s not just a fringe group anymore.
What is needed to make this society?
There are many people who believe that the KKK is a legitimate form of discourse because they do not want to referee it. However, this is not true. It is unacceptable for the KKK to be allowed to preach hate at all. This discourse should be eliminated and taken elsewhere so that people can have a chance for their voices to be heard without fear of being attacked.
Should we let the KKK go away or should they be fought against?
It’s hard to decide whether to let the KKK go away or fight them. At the time of writing, this blog is debating what should happen next with the KKK and it’s up to you to decide.
