Did That Meeting Between the NAACP and the KKK Do Anthing to Improve Race Relations?

Liz Dwyer

Imagine a meeting where "You had the NAACP on one side of a table. You had the one Klansman on the other. And they swung right into it." That's what went down this week in in Casper, Wyoming between local leaders of the two groups. Journalist Jeremy Fugleberg was our fly on the wall and gave NPR's Code Switch some insight into what happened.

    I feel the hate is to deep to cut our life times. People love the history, and respect their ancestors in a bad way. BUT when war strikes america we are all together, so the inside groups from KKK to NAACP are meaningless to the US Marines and US Army. Long as the violence from racism ends. He signed up basically it's a treaty even if he acts like it's a game of fun

    Interesting that the KKK member said he'd join the NAACP. It seems all he wants is to belong to something (and be racist), so why would he even say that?
