William Walters, Grand Dragon of the East Coast Knights of the KKK, recently made headlines when he was removed from his local neighborhood watch because he was recruiting for the Klan.
“We received information that Bill had been distributing flyers in the neighborhood trying to recruit new members,” town watch president Joe Nicoletti told Philadelphia Magazine. “And part of our bylaws state that members must promote harmony in the neighborhood, and we all know that harmony is not what the KKK is about.”
Walters joined Alan Colmes on Friday night to speak about his removal from the neighborhood watch, and was confronted with an uncomfortable truth: Jesus was not white.
As a white Christian organization, the Klan strongly believes in Jesus Christ–but when Colmes pointed out that Jesus was not white, things got awkward.
“Ahhh, I don’t know that,” responded Walters.
“Jesus was Mediterranean. Jesus was olive-skinned,” Colmes told him.
“He’s not black, either, so…” Walters retorted.
“But he wasn’t white,” Colmes attempted to convey to the bigot. “You’re a white group, and you’re claiming you’re a white Christian group. You won’t let blacks in. You won’t let darker-skinned people in…”
There are about 160 active “white Christian” chapters of the KKK in the United States. For more information about Klan activity in your area, check here.
