A picture is worth a thousand words and your insensitivities featured in this referenced Instagram validated that slogan. Khloe, I understand that you posted this incredulous, insulting, and humiliating photo. After public outrage, it was reported that you deleted it. Khloe, can you and your sisters (with Kris’ permission) indulge me for a brief internet conversation? Knowing this country’s history may help you to understand the violent injustices credited to the KKK. I know all about the KKK Ku Klux Klan. The white sheet wearing group who cowardly couldn’t show their faces handed down many disgraceful / disrespectful treatments and injustices to Black folks. Hanging Black men up on trees have been credited to the hands of the KKK. I remember the night that the KKK rode in my hometown of Glen Allan, Mississippi with the purpose of “scaring” us! (I am sorry. I forgot to mention that I am a Black woman). Shortly afterwards, the same notorious KKK burned down to the ground a Black church, St. John Baptist Church. No more church services or civil rights meetings there…for a while at least. Courtesy of the KKK, Glen Allan’s own Civil Rights activist Jake Ayers had a cross burned in his yard that ignited his gas tank while his 8 kids were asleep inside. (For your bedside reading, I invite you to read Ayers v. Fordice, a case about the racially segregated system of higher education filed by Jake Ayers. He didn’t let the KKK stop him). I question not the sexual overtone of your printed message. That’s your business that you put out in the streets. I will tell you that the KKK’s messages and actions did not follow suit. They have however beaten, killed, and relegated / debased Black men to be beneath them; to inferior statues mind you! So Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney, please know that I will not be watching “Kourtney and Khloe take the Hamptons.” Neither, will I be tuning into “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” How can I when you are the KKK?
