Among the many emails we get, this one included this line: “The Ku Klux Klan is coming to Lancaster, Pa, my hometown. Again.”

The email went on to say: “Last time they came it was September 8, three days before 9/11.   The challenge for me then and now is how to respond.”

It’s tough ferreting real events versus “fake news” – but we found this with a google search:

“The East Coast Knights of the Ku Klux Klan are planning a “cross lighting” in Quarryville, PA on Saturday, May 20th, according to a post on the neo-nazi website, Stormfront. Raging Chicken Press first learned of the plans earlier today thanks to a tip from a reader. The event is also posted on the organizing group’s web page.”

“On May 20 when the Klan comes, the NAACP will hold a Liturgy for Justice on the Lancaster Court House steps.  Men and women and folks who reject the gender binary will gather at 3pm.” – SOURCE: from the initial email

And the email concludes with “… take action to clean up the water.  If you don’t know why ‘all lives matter’ is a rhetorical move to obscure racism; if you serve on a mostly or all white board that’s supposed to benefit a multiracial community; if your workplace can’t ‘find qualified people of color;’ or if your school has a disproportionate number of white children in the gifted program and way too many kids of color tracked into low achievement; check your water.”

  1. Tyrannical rule will not benefit the people. Bigotry has no place in our society and we will give no sanctuary to persecution;Policies of exclusion are just as damaging in all participations of society,We as Pennsylvanians must take a look deep down in our souls and ask our selves why is a resurgence of hate taking place in America,In the heartland of Pennsylvania,LANCASTER county,In 1986 the hate groups were there and the majority of young white kids repudiated them!I am convinced they will stand up to them again!

  2. We agree fully.
