The Ku Klux Klan was originally organized in the winter of 1865-66 in Pulaski, Tennessee as a social club by six Confederate veterans. In the beginning, the Klan was a secret fraternity club. (Ku Klux was derived from the Greek "kuklos," meaning circle, and the English word clan.) The costume adopted by its members (disguises were quite common) was a mask and white robe and high conical pointed hat.
According to the founders of the Klan, it had no malicious intent in the beginning. It attracted former Civil War generals such as Nathan Bedford Forrest, the famed cavalry commander whose soldiers murdered captured black troops at Fort Pillow.The Klan spread beyond Tennessee to every state in the South and included mayors, judges, and sheriffs as well as common criminals. The Klan systematically murdered black politicians and political leaders. It beat, whipped, and murdered thousands, and intimidated tens of thousands of others from voting. Blacks often tried to fight back, but they were outnumbered and out gunned. While the main targets of Klan wrath were the political and social leaders of the black community, blacks could be murdered for almost any reason. Men, women, children, aged and crippled, were victims.In Texas, Governor Edmund Davis organized a crack state police unit, 40 percent of whose officers were black. The police made over 6,000 arrests and stopped the Klan. Armed groups of black and whites fought or threatened Klansman in North and South Carolina. The federal government also exerted its influence, empowering federal authorities with the Enforcement Acts of 1870 and 1871. Klan activity ended by 1872 and disappeared until it was revived again in 1915.

“Right now to give some of us just a perspective of the impact of abortion on demand in the black community, according to the archives of the Tuskegee Institute, from 1882 to 1968 – 86 years – the Ku Klux Klan lynched 3,446 Negroes,” Hoye said. “While it took the Klan 86 years to accomplish this, abortion on demand in America accomplishes that is less than 4 days.”
Hoye's numbers are based on the Guttmacher Institute's FACT SHEET on induced abortion in the United States. That fact feet shows that in 2008, 1.2 million abortions were performed in the U.S. Of those, 432,000 of those abortions were performed on black women. Using those figures, in three days 3,550 black babies were aborted. In four days, the total would be 4,734 aborted black babies.
The data collected on lynchings was compiled by Tuskegee University's Records and Research Division.
Hoye said that over 20 million of the more than 50 million abortions that have taken place since the Supreme Court Roe v. Wade ruling legalized the procedure are performed on black women.
“Since 1973, abortion on demand in black America has taken more lives than homicides, heart disease, diabetes, cancer and HIV/AIDS combined and has become the No. 1 cause of death in the black community,” Hoye said.
“The facts are clear,” he said. “The numbers don’t lie. Abortion on demand is a holocaust.”
Join me as I interview Travis Pierce of the Klu Klux Klan out of Compton, AR.
The original Ku Klux Klan (KKK) formed sometime between 1865 and 1866 in Pulaski, Tennessee. Nathan Bedford Forrest, the first acknowledged Klan leader, took actions to disband the organization in 1869. A resurgence in Klan activity occurred starting in 1915, and states such as Arkansas were home to newly forming Klan groups during the 1920s.
Travis Pierce says the KKK today is different. Is it? What is so different today than the days of old?

Some of you believe that we cannot defeat those who would subdue or slaughter us. Well, I do not share such cowardly and ridiculous thoughts. Sure we have to be smart because they are formidable, but if I may paraphrase Garvey, the power that holds African Americans is not divine ... it is flesh and blood.

What's up 9Mind Sacred Cosmic Frequency Sisterhood, family and klan?
My apologies for not doing yesterdays SunDay show. I received un-announced company and had to choose betewwn doing the show or asking my guest to leave. Of course I chose the company of my guest and all is good and instead of making y'all miss me all the way to next week. Tonight will be yesterday's make up show.
Tonight my mon·o·logue will include going over some FB post, current news and of course the main topic of our RELATIONSHIPS with one another, our children and or strangers and what is needed to take place for those relationships to become better, stronger, and FUNCTIONAL.
Too many of we are experiancing non functional relationships where we are with people are permanently around people we are not building a damn thing with.
What uh WASTE huh? I personally don't like hanging out with persons I'm not building with so when I meet you. I must quickly access whether or not the potential for (we) to BUILD ie.... create something is there. If it isn't then there is no reason we should become companions, or associates simply for the sake of having a NEW useless FRIEND to go eat some fried tacos with.
What up 9MIND Cosmic Frequency Sisterhood, Family and Klan? Feel like listening to some good music that brings back memories of when we (knew) we where Black aka Negro aka Colored aka now African American's, UNIQUE ~ SPECIAL & AWESOME????
