My Kasual Kountry Weekend With the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan

A report from the KKK’s 2012 Faith and Freedom conference in Arkansas:

There is a Twilight Zone feeling to it, as if you'd stumbled into a secret clubhouse where white people can say those forbidden things—the Valhalla of dumb racist jokes.
