    Byrd was one of the more subdued racists , but he was a racist and a KKK leader

    The subdued ones are the worse. At least those who are overt let us know who they are. And Byrd held positions of power.

    A long time ago (15+ years) I was watching Mississippi Burning and realized that the Klan had not been in the news during most of my lifetime, so I went on the ACLU website to see exactly what they had been up to. The worse act cited was "leafletting" (handing out offensive flyers.)

    ^^^^^ Maybe David Duke has changed his mind and repented his racist remarks like President Biden has.

    I don't know about his mindset, but David Duke left the Klan before Robert Byrd did.

    “I’m presented as a white supremacist all the time. You’ve been interviewing me for years. You know that I’ve never embraced that term. In fact I condemn – in fact in my work, in my website, in thousands of interviews, to my own people, to European Americans, by the way – I have a concern about the well-being European Americans in this country.”
    Duke said, “I believe human rights must be accorded to all people, all heritages and all nations. I believe that European Americans – I think that the government of our country is embarked on a purposeful program to destroy the European people in America by making us a tiny minority in the nation that our forefathers created.

    Everybody misspells the Klan!

    It's not the Klu Klux Klan...it's the Ku Klux Klan.

    No. Have you met any members of the BLM or New Black Panthers tan klan?

    I met black racists during riot duty with the National Guard when H. Rap Brown came to Cambridge MD and tried to get the locals to trash the place in 1967. Last I heard, he's Jamil Abdullah el Amin and still serving a life term in Atlanta for murdering a cop. The next year I met and interacted with number of racists trying to destroy Baltimore in the MLK riots, again with the National Guard.

    So tell me, you met any KKKs since '58?
