Klan ideology is not as hateful or radical as most people think, despite the history.
I grew up in TN. There was this guy in high school I did not really like but he was in my social group. He was racist but had yellow fever. For one family Christmas party he brought his Chinese girlfriend. His uncle, who was in the klan, asked to speak with him outside. When they got out back his uncle punched him in the face then left the party.
I always thought that was a great example of how southerners can use violence as a well measured form of communication. Here in CA people only get violent when they go off the handle and can't keep their anger in check.
I honestly can't tell if this is supposed to be funny or not. You state that the Klan is not hateful, then follow it up with an anecdote about a man who punched his high school-aged nephew at Christmas because he dated an Asian woman.
