KKK On Centerville, TN Square

I never thought I would see it. It always happened somewhere else. Not in my hometown. We are above that. But today there they were, covered up just like roaches hiding in the dark.

I started not to write anything about them because I don't want to give them the publicity that they want. But as Edmund Burke said "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

I consider myself a good man and I may not be able to do much, but if this blog can shed light on the injustices that continue today then I will do my part. I do not agree with what the KKK stands for, but as an American, I agree that they have the right to free speech - just as I do.

I am sorry that my friends witnessed today's display of ignorance, but this should serve as a reminder to all that there is still plenty of work to be done.

I don't see many problems in Hickman County and Centerville between the races. Are some there? Probably. But, what I see is everyone here concerned about the economy and jobs and the wars we are fighting - not whether someone is black or white.

I copied a picture off of Facebook that a friend of mine made and started to post it here, but I changed my mind because everyone knows what a roach looks like.

I think its embarrasing to think the KKK would choose our community to parade their ignorance.
