I remember in about 1983 traveling to Montgomery, Alabama to watch a rally of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. This is the group founded by Martin Luther King in 1955 during the time of the Montgomery Boycott. Joseph Lowery was the main speaker and I was in Alabama at the time and decided to go. I don’t recall the theme of the rally but I do recall that most of his speech centered around the injustice that black citizens of Montgomery receive at the hands of the Montgomery police.
Joseph Lowery spent a considerable amount of time highlighting what he described as the brutality of the police against blacks. While in Montgomery I was spotted by the local police and within moments had a tail following me and watching every move I made. They didn’t even attempt to hide, they actually stood beside me and let me know who they were and why they were there. They wanted to make sure I would not cause a disturbance. As we stood and listened to Lowery rant about police brutality against black citizens and listing and citing various injustices blacks had received I turned to the police officer and said, "It sounds like they are more concerned about you guys than they are about us, Maybe I should be following you around?"
He just looked at me and said nothing. But the fact is that so-called Klan crimes against blacks are dwarfed by the magnitude of crimes, brutality and injustices that law enforcement is accused of committing. In fact, if you type Police Brutality in google you will see a whole list pop up. The interesting thing is that if you type Klan Brutality, the top stories that pop up are more information about police brutality. In fact to find stories of Klan murders, crimes etc a person needs to check archives. To find stories of police murders, crimes etc, it is simply a matter of looking in yesterday’s newspaper. Perhaps we should be investigating the police instead of the other way around.
Is this an indictment against all police? Absolutely not. I am quite aware that the vast majority of those in law enforcement are good and upstanding citizens. But there are some who commit crimes and there are in fact more police who commit crimes than there are Klan members.
I have recently been aware that the police in Greensboro, North Carolina are concerned about the distribution of Knights Party literature. This is amusing, but also chilling. The distribution of literature is a constitutionally protected activity. To use tax payers money to investigate a constitutionally protected and God given right is a violation of the people’s trust. Especially when you considered that perhaps we should be investigating the police. Greensboro has no recent record of so-called Klan crimes. In fact, to the best of my knowledge the most recent Klan "crime" in Greensboro was in 1979 when members of another Klan group killed six people who had attached them with clubs, bats and guns. All the members of the Klan were found not guilty in two different trials. One conducted by the state of North Carolina and the other conducted by the federal government. But accusations of police brutality continue to this very day.
Recently members of the black communityin Greensboro, NC, held a Rally Against Police Brutality.

Accusations of this nature against the police is common. In fact, go to google and type in Rally Against Police Brutality. There are A LOT! Now type into google, Rally Against Klan Brutality. You know how may show up? NONE! In appears that the black community is more concerned about being the victim of police violence than they are of alleged Klan violence.
Again, I want to mention that I am not attacking the police. I don’t believe in the hysteria of police brutality. The point I am making is that Klan brutality doesn’t exist either.
Does that mean that there is NEVER an incident when someone who claims Klan membership may commit a crime. Of course not! But the percentage of Klan crimes is lower (much lower) then police crimes. In fact more people die of bumble bee stings every year (100) than has died from so-called Klan hatred in the past 100 years.
I sometimes have reporters ask me if I am concerned about law enforcement people infiltrating the Klan. My answer. No! Why should I be? Let them join. Let them pay their dues. The only thing they will discover is that we are inside the same as we are outside. We have nothing to hide. We are an open book! There is nothing to report except to say there is nothing to report!
I am aware that there are many in all segments of our nation, from the truck driver to the owner of the trucking company that is concerned about the future of America. There are CEO’s of major corporations who are concerned for the future of their children, just as much as I am.
We have people associated with the Knights who are from every walk of life. From those that work with their hands to those who work with the computer key board. We have associates who are news reporters and others in law enforcement. I have had reporters hand me donations after an interview and have received donations from others as well who will perhaps never join but want to support the cause of White Christian Revival. We have associates and supporters in federal agencies, including the FBI, and Homeland Security. Admittedly associates from some of these federal agencies are small, they do reflect, however, a concern that many white people in America have.
I remember a funny incident which occurred a few years ago when an employee at ****** reported to a superior officer that another individual was a suspected member of the Klan and demanded that they be reassigned to another position or at least be severely reprimanded. Unfortunately, for this individual, the superior officer was also a member of the Klan.
Why do Klan members so often keep their membership private? It isn’t because they have crimes they are trying to hide. It is because want to protect their families from rabid, angry, demanding Negroes who would like to destroy their jobs, livelihood and reputation in the community by accusing them of committing the same kind of crimes and brutality that they regularly throw at the police.
We support ALL law enforcement personal because we know they are innocent of the hysteria hurled at them. A growing number of people in this nation (law enforcement as well) are also aware of our innocence and may not join, but do support and are even beginning to financially support the cause of White Christian Revival.
It truly is time for white people - ALL white people to stick together!
