Ku Klux Klan

From my project on so-called hate groups, by Jacob Holdt,
creator of American Pictures, conducting lectures and anti-racism workshops
in more than 400 American universities for 25 years. 


....but is the Klan really about hate?

I have found love and hospitality in all social groups, so I was not surprised to find it in the Ku Klux Klan. What did surprise me was to find far less hate in their hearts and minds than I find in so many other people - especially in the feelings toward Muslims in my own country, Denmark. What disturbs me when staying with the Klan is rather seeing society's hatred of them - experiencing their constant fear of getting fire bombs and gunshots through their windows. Not to speak of seeing millions of people end up on my website through "ku klux klan"-searches in Google. Apparently people all over the world "worship the devil."
So this is a good place to test YOUR own racism. For when you look at these pictures of my Klan friends I wonder if you are really capable of seeing them with profound love without prejudging them! Ask yourself if they are dressing up like this for their own sake....or in order to actually satisfy YOUR need to hate others?

If you fail this tolerance test, read my surprising background story here!

Or see the movie about America's worst Klan leader, whom I took with me around
the ghettos to meet my black friends ......and who shortly after quit as a Klan leader

See also on TV my black ex-wife talk about KKK's terror in
her childhood town known from "Mississippi Burning"

See the photos from my trip with a black woman to the Klan headquarter

See my photos from another Klan group in the South

There are many more interviews, stories and movies about the KKK in Danish on this website.
I will later translate them and also talk more about what my purpose is of here trying to contradict the prevailing view about these so-called hate groups.
