oh, "counter protestors' dressed as clowns. I think it would have been better if they'd just had actual clowns, doing clown things in the midst of the klan rally. Keep the protesting subtle, like maybe have the clowns make people-shaped balloon animals with black and white balloons, holding hands.

"The message from us is, you look silly," said Lacey Williams, the youth coordinator for Charlotte's Latin American Coalition. "We're dressed like clowns and you're the ones that look funny."

Oh snap, that's so true. I had almost given up on people, there is hope...

When the speakers talked about "White Power," the protesters sprinkled white flour. Another held a sign reading "Wife Power."

Cute.

Jeff Schoep of the National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi group based in Detroit, said his organization wants to be an alternative third party to the country's two-party system. Its platform is based on white supremacy.

FTA "I think it's really important to have a sense of humor," added Williams. "What they want is for us to fight them. They want us to hit them with hate. We can't become them."

Well-done! :)

Good lord, that's hilarioffensive.

// I am now imagining the climactic bathroom scene in a MW "RT...wait...PRESS X NOW...wait...RB+LB..." style
// also, doesn't this keep happening, complete with "counterprotestors outnumbered the white supremacists 5-to-1" and "White Flour"?
// not that I object...

Yes, because an organization dedicated to fighting racism is exactly the same as a racist, violent organization. EXACTLY. THE. SAME.

I saw this done at a protest in Belgium once. The clowns would form up in formations next to the police and imitate them. I don't know what the protest was all about because my french is for shiat, but someone explained that they do this pretty regularly.

Can any Belgian farkers explain this? Other than it being hilarious and non violent?

I saw a video, once upon a time, of a klan parade that was joined by a ton of people in multi-colored klan robes who then started dancing around the KKK members. It was hilarious, and for the life of me I can't find that video. Anyone know how to hook a brother up?

My FIL is from Ala and is always been ill-disposed toward those of more recent African origin to the point of keeping some rather disgusting artifacts upstairs in his office. Charming placards and such. He's been having some health issues, nothing that having all the money in the world can't ameliorate, so one of his fanbois decided to honor him by having experts document his ancestry. Oops!

I get it and I don't get it at the same time. I get that people are afraid of losing their identity and culture. But. Why are they afraid of colour? I've met more white arseholes than non white. I'm not saying all whites are this and all non whites are that. I'm saying that you should judge people on their merits and actions not the colour of their skin or their belief system. Some of the nicest people I've met have been Muslim Iranians and Irish Catholics. As far as the arseholes are concerned they fill every single niche. There's good and bad in every colour. Yeah, yeah, I'm boring.

You can't understand racial hatred because you are not possessed of it. Of course, it's going to seem nonsensical to you. White supremacists are not possessed of logic. They are among the most ignorant of our citizens. I have always suspected that their hatred of others is nothing more than a projection of their self-hatred.

Yes, I have a theory that there are three factors that result in racism: 1. a mental defect of some sort such as a very low IQ or psychosis 2. an abusive childhood 3. self-hate. It is a disorder.
