The American Ku Klux Klan, assumed to be a shell of the formerly powerful and right wing racist army has recently re-emerged in a kinder gentler form. Most notably, the Klan recently endorsed Barack Obama for the U.S. presidency in 2008.
H. Rowe Geddy, the current Grand Wizard of the American Klan asserts: "We are no longer the despicable hate mongers that our grandparents were. The Klan now recognizes the need for diversity and we just want to build a stronger America".
Geddy said that he hopes that there can be forgiveness and reconciliation between his organization and African Americans since in reality it is important that we "all band together to fight our real enemies, the Jews and Spics".
Geddy spoke of changes in Klan membership demographics as well. "Hell, we used to be lucky to get people that graduated from the 10th grade, now at least 15% of our members have some community college under their belt".
These statements are confirmed by a recent survey of the American Ku Klux Klan conducted by Howard University. The Howard study found the average IQ for Klan members jumped from 68 in 1975 to the current high of 82.
Geddy also stressed the new Klan emphasis on non-violent action for change in America, "we will continue to use politics rather than violence to get our views heard unless that doesn't work and then we will start crackin' heads again".
