Dear Editor:

Most of us have heard of the Ku Klux Klan. But not for decades. Recently, membership went from 200 to 2,000. We do know that they burn crosses and hide behind hoods. But what do they stand for?

They said that the blacks should go back to their own country and we should get rid of the Jews and Hispanics. And there should only be whites in this country. Furthermore the Grand Knight, speaking behind a hood said if President Obama gets another four years in office, there will be a war in this country. That's absurd.

It's the KKK who are starting a war. They stand for discrimination and any discrimination breeds hatred and sometimes war.
