The concept of embracing diversity is becoming very important. If you did not know this you should ask the Ku Klux Klan. A chapter of the KKK located in Montana known as the Rocky Mountain Knights is seeking to change its image of spewing hatred and bigotry towards people of color. Founder John Abarr has stated “White supremacy is the old Klan. This is the new Klan. The KKK is for a strong America.” Also, according to Abarr, new members will still have to wear the traditional Klan robe and hood.

But not all Klansmen are happy with the new diversity initiative. Bradley Jenkins, an Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, said in reaction to the news, “That man’s going against everything the bylaws of the constitution of the KKK say. He’s trying to hide behind the KKK to further his political career.” However, this has not stopped interest in the rebranded Klan. According to Abarr, after he held a meeting with civil rights groups several people expressed an interest in joining. Surprisingly, this number included black people.
