I must say, as a black conservative, that this was one of the most interesting and informative articles I have read in a long time. I grew up in the 60s and 70s. Back then there was still a fair amount of actually history being taught in public schools. But I never learned of the link between the KKK and the Democrat Party, nor of the NRA and their work in helping blacks defend themselves. Fascinating and, sadly, makes perfect sense.
