Clowns Make White Power Rally Silly

Just when I think I got White folks figured out you go and do something like this. A friend of mine told me about this yesterday (Thanks Chris!) and he said that all the blogs were talking about this. I haven't seen this story before on any of the blogs that I read. I must admit this story is pretty damn funny and worth repeating as many times as is humanly possible.

The KKK and a White power group gathered together for a rally in Tennessee last May. Unfortunately for them an White anti-racist group got wind of the rally and decided to show up ... in clown outfits!

From Asheville Indymedia by Chris Irwin:
"Clowns KKKick KKK ass!" —

“White Power!” the Nazi’s shouted, “White Flour?” the clowns yelled back running in circles throwing flour in the air and raising separate letters which spelt “White Flour”.

“White Power!” the Nazi’s angrily shouted once more, “White flowers?” the clowns cheers and threw white flowers in the air and danced about merrily.

“White Power!” the Nazi’s tried once again in a doomed and somewhat funny attempt to clarify their message, “ohhhhhh!” the clowns yelled “Tight Shower!” and held a solar shower in the air and all tried to crowd under to get clean as per the Klan’s directions.

At this point several of the Nazi’s and Klan members began clutching their hearts as if they were about to have a heart attack. Their beady eyes bulged, and the veins in their tiny narrow foreheads beat in rage. One last time they screamed “White Power!”

The clown women thought they finally understood what the Klan was trying to say. “Ohhhhh…” the women clowns said. “Now we understand…”, “WIFE POWER!” they lifted the letters up in the air, grabbed the nearest male clowns and lifted them in their arms and ran about merrily chanting “WIFE POWER! WIFE POWER! WIFE POWER!”

I don't think that Black people would have approached a race rally with this kind of creativity, we would have been too angry. It wouldn't have worked as effectivily anyway. I've always thought that the only people who can deal with White racism is White people. After all, it is a White problem not a Black one. Asking Black people to fix racism is a little like asking a rape victim to figure out the rapist's problem, how the hell is she supposed to know what his problem is. I'm glad to see this kind of action. It gives me hope. And it sure is damned funny.
