Memphis’s Government Sponsored Protest

Posted on March 24, 2013 by


A new trend #onlyinmemphis: Government Sponsored Protest; Mayor A.C. Wharton, the city of Memphis, Chamber of Commerce, and others are sponsoring a protest against the Klu Klux Klan. The catch is: if the government and the status quo are working together to protest the KKK their aim isn’t the same as those who would protest because of the Klan’s ugly historic terrorist acts against black Americans and those who support them; their aim is simply to protect the city’s image. That’s cool, but they’re taking a position that marginalizes a historic protest against the Klan and is only reserved for those who are troubled by the Klan’s acts of terror.
