And Soooo The Hood Comes Off!

It turns out....The Ku Klux Klansman that I saw in center city Philadelphia on Thursday was not a Kluxer at all, but a Black man trying to make a point about Black on black crime...

This Philadelphia man caused a bit of a stir on Tuesday morning and through out the week when he posed in the middle of a busy Philadelphia intersection in a KKK robe and holding a sign saying: “The KKK KILLED 3,446 Blacks in 88 years. Black on black murders surpass that number every 6 months.” The man,known only as  Sixx King (shown above), is the director of a documentary titled “Mothers of No Tomorrow.”


The film follows three women who have lost their sons to gang violence. When asked why he stood at a busy section dressed as a member of the KKK, King said “I’m protesting black-on-black murder. I’m making a stance that the number of African Americans killed have surpassed the number of victims in the Iraq and Afghanistan war.” He added: ”And African Americans have killed more of their own people than the KKK.”

A valid point indeed....I'm not mad at him at all....In fact ,I admire his guts...I sure wouldn't have and couldn't have done what he did....Sheeeesh...People will do anything to be on Television....LOL...I'm just kidding of course....

Point Taken!

He has a point, however, wearing a KKK costume. That's taking it too far.

I agree, but you gotta admire his courage!

The one thing he did do was start the conversation..no matter what you may have thought. I disagree with the costume, but the stats he gives about the KKK lynchings and what we have done to each other says a lot.

Pardon my French...fkn idiot!

When I read the story the other day, I figured it was such a ploy. That robe symbolizes so much pain to so many people. For him to put it on is beyond insensitive. If he wants to get the message out about black on black violence, buy books for children, join a mentoring program, get active on local educational efforts that impact the school system, etc....

I knew it was a black man. I'm not insulted one bit. He made a strong and memorable point, He got folks thinking and talking....and shrewdly marketing his movie. He's brave.

So, what are we upset about? Is it because our dirty laundry was aired? The world already knows about our filth. Maybe we need to be put on blast. Maybe some of our snooty brethern and sistas need to get up off of their rumps and make it do what it do.

we need more focus on the subject of black on black crime,it is a part of our culture,lines do need to drawn by black Americans about this subject,the costume is prop!but the message is remain the same,no guts! no glory!courage to stand up for what we find shameful is a good thing even if there is some pain involved.

For some reason, I thought maybe the person behind the costume was black...so, I'm not surprised nor offended. I agree with Toni, Claude & Anon. This black on black crime must stop! The statistics are alarmingly ridiculous and painfully sad. He is trying something unconventional and I'm not knocking his tactics or hustle.
