Ku Klux Klan NAACP Summit

The NAACP and KKK Hold First Meeting Together In History, KKK Member Joins NAACP


(AllHipHop News) Martin Luther King Jr’s dream is slowly manifesting in to reality. Representatives of the Wyoming chapter of the NAACP and the KKK met this past Saturday (August 31st) to discuss race relations and allegations of racist literature from the KKK being distributed.

Jimmy Simmons, president of the Casper NAACP, and John Abarr, a KKK organizer addressed claims that the KKK have been attacking Black men and disseminating racist literature in the state of Wyoming. Abarr appeared oblivious to these claims and Gillette police Lt. Chuck Deaton stated that no racially charged attacks on Black men have been reported in the last five years.

While the meeting was historic in the precedent it set, critics and Abarr himself question the effectiveness of the meeting to the Associated Press:

I don’t know if we accomplished too much. We’re not about violence. We’re about being proud to be white.

Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center told the Associated Press the meeting was “outrageous and counterproductive” as he believes it “gives legitimacy to the Klan as an organization you can talk to.”

The meeting may not have been entirely successful but an interesting twist appeared as KKK organizer Abarr paid $50 to apply for membership at the NAACP. However, do not expect any of the NAACP to be joining the KKK anytime soon according to Abarr:

You have to be white to join the Klan.

  • Brooklyn Stoop

    being that the NAACP was created by a white women

    BASICALLY this is two white organization meeting

    • anemia716

      “BASICALLY this is two white organization meeting

      ^ nice try, but that in no way makes it a “white” organization.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        who created the NAACP then smart guy

      • You’re not exactly 100% accurate, but very close, the bottom line is, regardless of who created it, the Israelis / Jews took it over from the beginning.

        Good or bad?

        Depends on who you ask.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        What part is wrong? Ok not a white women only they had white men too. Ok….. Fact is Dubois had the niagra movement in 1905 and the whites created the NAACP in 1909 and invited Dubois and others from the niagra movement to join THEIR organization. So what part am I wrong

      • The Niagara Movement became the National Negro Committee, then the NAACP about 2 yrs later. In reality, although the JEWS? played a pivotal and maybe even a controlling role, it was still a group decision by people like Dubois & Ida B Wells.

  • John Q. Public

    looks like the kkk won this meeting. nothing was accomplished and a clan member infiltrated the naacp

    • anemia716

      infiltrated? so, since when is applying for membership and actual membership the same thing?

      • Yes, with the NAACP, as long as the application includes the FEES.

    • the NAACP hardly ever accomplish anything in their meetings.

      • I was just gonna say, if he was counting the infiltration, the NAACP won by tying up the KKK’s spy from doing important KKK ‘chet.

  • Obi Won

    “KKK organizer Abarr paid $50 to apply for membership at the NAACP”
    Real slick, I wonder if it had been 50 grand would he have gotten thru. Abarr or whoever he is should’ve been dismissed at that very moment

    • The $50 was enough to get through, trust me.

      • redhickey

        I believe you. Get in and get what info you can. Denounce his membership with the Klan first before you trust any of it.

      • NAACP has no OPSEC (Operational Security) nor do they need any. What are they doing that the KKK would spy on? Also, if the KKK really wanted to spy, they would have slipped in on the low, joined by mail, etc,

        The membership was a symbolic show of support, not a tactical or even strategic move by the KKK, albeit, it was a political one.

    • redhickey

      How about or what about Abarr denouncing his membership with the KKK…

    I don’t know which way to go with this information at all. I mean two organizations founded because they felt their way of being was being deminished. One hiding behind sheets, burning crosses claiming to be “followers of Christ” (that’s like flag burners claiming to be American) and another that couldn’t get it’s foot in the door until three white people joined in. I mean white folk are colored too so…smh, lo que sea
    goes back to I’m SET ~ Goodie MOB

    • Brooklyn Stoop

      what 3 whites “joined the NAACP? the NAACP was created by a white women and it was dubois them that had to join HER organization called the NAACP

      • Romia Blue

        Check out the Niagra Movement…this thing is “moderating” my comments

  • Stay Phokus

    where’s Clayton Bigsby?

    • Eli Pinilla

      He’s in court….divorced his was cuz she was a n*****r lover lmao!!!!!

  • the kkk are mentally diseased coward people..kill them all

  • The Justice League sat down to have a meeting with The Legion of Doom. In all seriousness though, proud to be white, proud to be black…what about just being proud to be a living breathing human being.

    • ccwaterbound32

      how about the laws change to FAVOR EVERYBODY! then we can all sit down and sing coombyeyah!

      • LOL I’ll wish upon a star for that one

  • Cory Evans

    who the f8ck said this was Dr. Kings dream???…stfu you young stupid MF….NEVER write an article again…

    • Keith N.

      Dr King’s dream was for racial unity…a group responsible for immense racist violence progressing to talking with the NAACP is progress towards racial unity….you see that…correct?

      • Cory Evans

        No I don’t. White people have performed actions like this for centuries. The KKK is not to be trusted EVER. The Black people that sat down with them are sellouts. They can join the NAACP but A Black man can;t join the KKK? That is not equality. That is bul**hit. Black people do not want to unite with any Klansmen ever. You can never talk to us. We should be sitting down with normal day to day white people who may not be racist but lack an understanding for being black in America. The only way we will heal these wounds is through knowledge…not trick-knowledge. #deathtotheklan

  • john allen

    this is about one state getting together to solve there problems cause the state where im from has a long way to go about race relations.

  • white dude hoping to get rejected for membership so he can sue for discrimination . . . and/or if he does get accepted there will be a lot of behind door jokes . . .

    • JimJames29

      They could easily reject him for being a member of the kkk. Thats not racism.

      • If you think the NAACP will deny anyone’s money, er, uh, MEMBERSHIP application, you’re not thinking clearly.

      • Not racism, but discrimination . . .

  • TimeWillTellu1

    Signs the world is coming to an end. lol

    Hm, not sure what to make of this. On the one hand: how could you ever have a cnstructive meetng with an organisation which perceives you as the enemy and inferior by default. I mean, the kkk is not on the other side of a conflict, to them, the naacp IS the conflict. Which means theres reason enough to never ever talk to them.
    On the other hand, if there are some smaller issues that could conceivably be solved through discussion, why not try.
    I’m leaning towards the first, though: as long as the other side does not even acknowledge you as a human being, there can be no sitdowns.

  • JimJames29

    And no, I’m pretty sure this aint what MLK had in mnd at all

  • @Real_SirJamie

    “We’re not about violence. We’re about being proud to be white.” Right… Because lynchings, beatings, rape, assault rifles, dragging people behind horses, and burning at the stake aren’t violent actions.

  • TALK_BOSS

    Ja Rule wasn’t there? Smh….Blasphemy

  • southside4lyfe

    John Abarr sound like he is more middle eastern than white. IJS

    keith nelson jr kill yoself

    [Martin Luther King Jr. talking to Harry Belafonte: “I said, ‘What’s the matter, Martin? You seem very agitated.’ He said, ‘Well, I am, because I’ve come upon a thought that I don’t know how to deal with at this moment.’ I said, ‘Well, what is it?’ He said, ‘We’ve fought long for integration. It looks like we’re gonna get it. I think we’ll get the laws,” he says. “But I’m afraid that I’ve come upon something that I don’t know quite what to do with. I’m afraid that we’re integrating into a burning house.’”]
    DEATH TO THE KLAN!

    • “keith nelson jr kill yoself”

      Names start with capital letters…..

  • Brooklyn Stoop

    Yo beside tha FACT that the NAACP is a organization created by white people who invited black people INTO their movement……..how eazy do we forget that the honorable Marcus Garvey and his BLACK organization the UNIA sat down and spoke to the Klan already in his time. Lets also not forget that it was Dubois and the NAACP who went against Garvey and his movement……..and if I’m not mistaking them NAACP puppets called Garvey out for doin it. The NAACP is more then a hundred years too late. Black people ……. Learn YOUR story or ur doomed to fall for the same tricks deez devil stay playing on us.

  • king joe

    hey @Brooklyn Stoop.. my brother I have a book called “NEGRO WITH A HAT The Rise and Fall of Marcus Garvey” in which it speaks of that same incident that you just said in ya comment. W.E.B. was a member of a group called the boule, which is a black version of skull and bones. it was because of them the he went after The Honorable Marcus Garvey. Do people know that it was a white woman who originally formed the NAACP? Peace to you my brother
