-Klansmen, salute the cross!
-White power!
-White power!
-White power!
-White power!
-Who is Nathan Bedford Forrest?
-He was the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, and he
was a freedom fighter for the southern colonies, the
colonies of southern independence.
The Confederate States of America.
-Nathan Bedford Forrest was a racist.
It's a symbol of a negative part of the past that many
African Americans in this community simply don't want,
and they don't like.
-He was a very prominent man, a very wealthy man.
And he was a self made man.
-He was another Adolf Hitler, in my mind.
-Our hero for every member of the white race.
-He is most remembered by me as being just one of the
greatest Civil War generals we ever had.
-He was a marauder, a murderer.
At Fort Pillow, he executed hundreds of black soldiers.
He was one of the co-founders of one of the single worst
domestic terrorist organizations in the history
of the United States.
His bad kind of outweight his good.
-He's always been a revered figure in the Klan.
You know, I looked up to Nathan Bedford
Forrest as a general.
But it does cause trouble in this city.
ROCCO CASTORO: I arrived in Memphis six days before the
scheduled Klan rally to reveal the hard truths about a city
that has struggled with racism since it was founded in 1819.
So we're here outside Lorraine Motel, which is where Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Was assassinated.
A lot of people are up in arms about this Klan rally due to
its timing, which is a day away from Easter, and five
days away from the anniversary of his assassination.
Seems pretty purposefully timed to me, and outright
disrespectful.
-Young people in America, you need to realize that the
schoolhouse is not going to teach you right from wrong.
All they're gonna teach you is Black History Month, and
Mexican Month, and all that.
[INAUDIBLE], ain't nobody talking to you,
you stay over there.
Nobody talking to you.
I got an hour, and I'm gonna be here for an hour.
I got this darn bench, you didn't get it.
-Great.
White power.
-White power!
-It's my hour, and I'm gonna take my hour.
Do not go [INAUDIBLE], do not take our rights away from us.
The black political machine is wanting to
take away your monuments.
Dig him up and move him.
But that will never happen.
It'll never happen in America, because we will stand tall for
Nathan Bedford Forrest.
And another thing, another thing, next time I get out at
the gas station and I'm pumping my gas, I don't want
to hear your Lil Jon and your Triple Six, and your Bohemian
I don't know what music.
You live over in Africa where it came from.
If it wasn't for the white man fighting for you, you'd still
be picking cotton in the fields.
That's what you'd be doing if it wasn't for the white man
fought for you.
NAACP.
Negroes, apes, alligators, coons and possums.
Which one are you?
STEVEN HOWARD: Yeah, you can come here, man.
You can come here.
Watch your step, man.
Forrest City, let me find Forrest City.
You know what that this?
ROCCO CASTORO: That's where the--
STEVEN HOWARD: Klan was founded at.
ROCCO CASTORO: Pulaski.
-Yes, Pulaski, Tennessee.
Know what that is?
ROCCO CASTORO: No.
-That's Chapel Hill, Tennessee.
That was Nathan Bedford Forrest's boyhood home.
-And this one goes from here to here.
MICHAEL CLAYTON: The reason that I joined the Klu Klux
Klan of Mississippi is because I am tired of all of the
blacks, and all of the Mexicans think
that they own America.
ROCCO CASTORO: In Memphis, they want to
rename one of the parks.
What do you think about that?
MICHAEL CLAYTON: I think that it's bull crap.
I think that it's just a bunch of blacks that want to take
all the white people's history away from them.
And if they do it in Memphis, Tennessee, then they're gonna
go to another state, and they're gonna try it in
another state, and another state, and another state, and
another state.
And that's when we'll all be in concentration camps.
So be ready for it.
ROCCO CASTORO: Do you feel that your rights as a white
man are being taken away?
JAMES THOMAS: Oh, every day.
ROCCO CASTORO: Can you give examples?
JAMES THOMAS: I mean, just like the Ole Miss deal, where
they've done away with the Ole Miss mascot at Ole Miss.
They took the Colonel Reb away and replaced it
with a Black Bear.
I mean, I can understand them changing the name because they
said it hurts their recruiting at Ole Miss, but then they're
gonna turn around and call it the Black Bears.
Why not a white bear?
Why'd it have to be black?
-Tonight, boys, tonight, we gonna kill us a negro.
ROCCO CASTORO: And will you be at Saturday's rally?
-More than likely.
We'll see how things go.
Called for rain, but we'll see what happens.
Called for rain today, but we still's out there.
The Ku Klux Klan is like the postal service.
Rain, shine, sleet or snow, we gonna be out there.
Ain't no rain gonna stop me.
So I'm gonna be out there.
-And that's how you do it.
That's how you prepare a cross.
-We gonna kill us a negro.
-All right!
DAJUAN HORTON: This is the KKK.
They gonna come to Memphis, Tennessee, in the middle of
Black History Month, where Martin Luther
King got gunned down.
You're gonna come here and rally deep, really, really
deep in my language just to talk?
No, it's not gonna happen like that.
ROCCO CASTORO: Shortly after the Klan's announcement they
were rallying in Memphis, local Grape Street Crips
member DaJuan Horton posted a video on YouTube in which he
stated that he was forming an alliance of rival Memphis
games to amass in a show of force on the day of the rally.
DAJUAN HORTON: When you come, we're gonna have the biggest
fucking rally you ever seen.
[INAUDIBLE]
Hip Hop, Memphis, Tennessee.
-We out this bitch.
[MUSIC - LIL WYTE FT.
MISCELLANEOUS & AL KAPONE, "M.E.M.P.H.I.S."]
DAJUAN HORTON: When I made the video, I just didn't see eye
to eye with what they were saying, about how they were
gonna come down here so deep like that.
And at this point, I really don't even care,
whatever they do.
I just want to get my people together, and it's going to be
bigger than just their rally.
Even after their rally, which is Saturday on the 30th, I
still want to keep us together and keep this movement going.
There are all kinds of gangs down here, and we're gonna get
all those different people who kill each each other--
Bloods, Crips, GDs, Vice Lords, and Ill.
They can kill each other, I figure they can come together
and do something positive.
So I've been talking to all the different gangs.
Just not specific people, like we haven't made truces with
enemies, or nothing like that.
ROCCO CASTORO: No, I didn't mean that.
DAJUAN HORTON: I would like to, though.
All my enemies, I'm like, I love you.
Like, anybody who thinks I don't like you, like,
I like you a lot.
I would like--
down there, I like to get like a lot of weed and bring it
down there to the people, and give it to them and make them
smoke peace blunts.
Like, blunts make people relax.
This is my favorite.
I named her Cobra, because she's a cobra.
COOL: He can't keep a gun.
He trigger happy.
I shoot for him, so I just give him the guns.
DAJUAN HORTON: So people with licenses carry my guns for me,
but I got the papers.
So we're illegal.
So if you run up on us in public and you got a problem,
may God be with you.
DOC MARTIN: Good morning.
Welcome, welcome, welcome.
You know it's 10:00, and you know what time it is.
It's time for you to come on into my office, stretch out on
the couch, and let's talk about it.
Today we have a great one for you.
The topic is the renaming of the parks.
City council decided that the parks are named after some
people that they feel have done some African Americans
bad in this community.
Then there are some saying, man, that was history, it had
nothing to do with that.
But last time we had somebody protest, called the KKK, it
didn't go too good.
And coming this Saturday, they're gonna be in Memphis
protesting the fact that, hey, you leave the name of them
parks alone.
We know what it represents to us, and we feel
it should not change.
And there are some rumors that the gangs here in Memphis are
going to say, we're going to keep the Klan at hand.
Well, whichever way it goes, I'd like to know, how do you
feel about it?
-How many minutes I got to be talking about this
before we hang up?
DOC MARTIN: You got your 90 seconds.
-But now, Doc, on my phone, Doc, you
see, I got 14 minutes.
It says I got 14 minutes.
DOC MARTIN: But you ain't got 14 minutes on the show.
Come on, bumblebee, get your--
-Uh-huh.
DOC MARTIN: Get in and get out.
-I got 'till the [INAUDIBLE]
say what I want to say.
I don't care nothin' about their park.
Keep their park right there.
DOC MARTIN: That's how you feel?
-[INAUDIBLE].
DOC MARTIN: All right, bumblebee, I'm
gonna keep it real.
-Ah--
DOC MARTIN: You got your seconds.
Appreciate you, man.
Gentleman, let's not even put any hesitation to this.
The founder of the Ku Klux Klan was Nathan Bedford
Forrest, and they've named the park after him.
I think that's the biggest issue with some Memphians.
LEE MILLAR: Well, that's part of the education that needs to
occur, because General Forrest was not the founder
of the Ku Klux Klan.
It existed for over a year before he allegedly ever got
involved in it.
So Forrest was not the founder of the Klan, and in fact the
Klan of the 1860s is very different
from the Klan of today.
It's upsetting that people would attack history and try
to erase history like this.
It takes education to learn about somebody from 150 years
in our past, and the more people know, they get educated
about our past, the better off they are.
When the Ku Klux was formed, they created it as a social
club, to start with.
Tennessee at that time was ruled by just a tyrannical
carpet bag governor, and he had tripled the taxes.
And so these ex-Confederates thought that they had better
do something about it.
So they dressed up in sheets and curtains one night, and
ran him out of town, and they restored law and order to
Pulaski, Tennessee.
Well, this caught on and the next town did the same thing.
They were also protecting the white and black farmers who
were losing their land, so it wasn't an anti-black thing
whatsoever in the 1860s.
After it had gone on for over a year on, the Klan had spread
so widely that they needed someone who could really
organize the Klan, and they voted in General Forrest as
president of the Klan.
At that same point, the Klan started turning violent.
Some of the guys were taking the law into their own hands,
and so Bedford Forrest ordered that the Klan be disbanded,
and it was.
So in 1869, the Ku Klux Klan disappeared.
ROCCO CASTORO: And this was the initial--
LEE MILLAR: This was the first--
right, the first Klan.
Then around the time of World War I, jobs were scarce.
You had the Great Depression.
And the white guys figured out that if you scared the black
guys out of town, there would be more jobs.
Generally speaking, blacks are more scared of ghosts than
other people, so it became an economic tool for the Klan to
resurrect itself.
ROCCO CASTORO: Is the word scare a bit--
LEE MILLAR: Well, scare might be a little bit light.
ROCCO CASTORO: Yeah, a little light, I would think.
LEE MILLAR: Yes, yes.
There may have been some lynchings then, but yeah,
that's where it first had gotten into little terrorist
activities.
Then the Klan disappeared in about 1933, and was gone on
until the 1950s and '60s.
Then when segregation came about, then
the third Klan arose.
And they were specifically to fight black civil rights and
to oppose federal intervention.
And they really developed the scare tactics, just to
terrorize the black residents.
And that's, unfortunately, the Klan that we have today, is
more of the terrorist group.
ROCCO CASTORO: Do you think the city council is engaging
in revisionist history?
LEE MILLAR: Oh yes, I certainly do.
They're trying to eliminate these three Civil War parks,
which is part of American history,
Memphis history, certainly.
And so it's certainly upon the shoulders of the city council
that the Klan is coming to Memphis for a rally.
And it's unfortunate, because it's going to give Memphis a
further black eye.
ROCCO CASTORO: It was the Memphis city council who
spearheaded the decision to change the
name of Forrest Park.
Two council members in particular, Janice Fullilove
and Myron Lowery were extremely vocal about the
reasons for the renaming.
JANICE FULLILOVE: Why do we have to put up with what we
have seen for decades and decades, that's just a
reminder of how evil some people had been towards my
people, and other people?
I marched with Dr. King back in 1968, got shot at by a
Memphis police officer.
The only thing that saved me, I had a hair piece on my head,
and a big old hole in it.
And we don't need that.
We are a progressive city.
We're moving forward.
ROCCO CASTORO: The decision to change these parks' names, I
mean, is there any responsibility
to bear on the council?
JANICE FULLILOVE: I take the blame.
Even though I've got death threats, they're gonna hang
me, nigga, we're gonna get you.
Fine.
ROCCO CASTORO: Is that what the Klan's,
they're calling you--
JANICE FULLILOVE: I don't know if it was the Klan.
ROCCO CASTORO: Somebody.
JANICE FULLILOVE: Somebody.
Yeah.
They were going to kill--
I was going to be hung.
I was--
OK, so what?
Hang me, but I'm still going to stand for that which is
right, even if I stand by myself.
But fortunately, there were 13, 12 others
that stood with me.
MYRON LOWERY: I've referred to the Klan as a terrorist
organization.
In fact, I call them the American Taliban.
Change produces controversy, and that's what we
have in this case.
People, many people don't want to change.
They want to live in the past with the
memories that they have.
Well, no one is trying to change history.
We're only trying to add on to history.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
DR. E.C. FIELDS: Mr. Castoro, US Grant.
ROCCO CASTORO: Nice to meet you, General Grant.
DR. E.C. FIELDS: Won't you come in?
ROCCO CASTORO: Yes, hello.
DR. E.C. FIELDS: This is my wife, Julia.
Julia, this is Mr. Rocco Castoro.
JULIA: Good morning, sir.
ROCCO CASTORO: Pleasure to meet you, Mrs. Grant.
JULIA: Welcome to our home.
ROCCO CASTORO: Thank you for having me.
DR. E.C. FIELDS: Julia graciously
agreed to join us briefly.
ROCCO CASTORO: That's wonderful.
Memphis is a weird but magical place, and is apparently home
to a wormhole that allowed me to travel back in time to meet
Union general and former President
Ulysses S. Grant, a.k.a.
Doctor E. C. Fields, to get his opinion on the
controversy.
DR. E.C. FIELDS: Councilwoman Fullilove does not know her
history, and that's someone who has the position, don't
confuse me with the truth, I've got my mind made up.
General Forrest, he was supportive of
Negro, black rights.
In fact, in 1875 he came out and said strongly that he felt
that blacks should be admitted to the bar to practice law.
He had earlier said that blacks should be able to go as
far as their capabilities could take them.
I never met General Forrest personally.
I know something of his history that I may be
able to tell you.
General Forrest was a military genius.
He was the only man in the Civil War, and indeed, the
only man in history who rose from a private soldier to
Lieutenant General in the same war.
His movements, his tactics, his efforts are still studied
at the United States Military Academy, so General Forrest,
to me, is exemplary of someone who was one of the most
effective combat leaders in military history.
That's Chief.
He's chiefed up, so we call him Chief.
JULIA: He's the male alpha.
He's the alpha.
ROCCO CASTORO: What will you be doing on Saturday when the
rally is happening?
DR. E.C. FIELDS: I will be here in the 21st century.
I will be here on my deck, looking at my
ducks on the lake.
I will place myself as far away as I possibly can from
what's going on downtown, and I urge everyone to
stay away from that.
Don't give anybody, be it the Klan or
the Crips, an audience.
ROCCO CASTORO: Two days before the rally, I met back up with
DaJuan Horton and his fellow Grape Street Crips to see how
the recruiting efforts were going.
DAJUAN HORTON: About to go get on with some young fellas in
the neighborhood.
Catch them outside, just getting out of school.
All of them, you know?
Some of them grown.
Everybody's been in a little trouble.
Everybody do their own things as far as getting money and
what they're claiming, but I want them to come together and
show them that we don't have to kill each other while
you're getting your money.
That's one thing for sure, you don't have to fear
another black man.
ROCCO CASTORO: They had gotten as far as setting up a name
for their new gang mega alliance, which they called
DUI, Divine United International.
As I rode with DaJuan on the recruiting mission, I couldn't
help but think that some people
might find it confusing.
You want to basically have these guys all be under the
banner of DUI?
DAJUAN HORTON: Yeah, but it's more of--
not a banner.
I don't know the terminology I want to use.
We're going to Hustle Town.
ROCCO CASTORO: Hustle Town?
DAJUAN HORTON: Yeah, it's Hustle Town.
Yes, this place can be very dangerous.
I know a couple people from over here have been shot.
And it's not so much that it's a poverty neighborhood, it's
just the people in the neighborhood are
just us, you know?
Hood people, and they're gonna act a certain way no matter
where they are?
Hello?
Little Ed, are you fixing to come to the hood?
We on our way now, nigga.
Oh, you on the way now?
All right, G. So you know we out here, east side.
You see my boy?
No matter where we at, it's east side over here.
Come on, [INAUDIBLE].
Yeah, so like, we can get this DUI out here, man.
Divine United International.
We're trying to stop killing each other.
How do you all feel about that, you know?
It says DUI, but it's not DUI, we're
driving drunk, or nothing.
You know, we're trying to come together.
So the more people you know in Memphis, imagine you had all
them connections.
You'll never have a problem.
You get stranded somewhere, you can call anybody.
We gonna bring everybody together, man.
All the gangs and stuff like that, we gonna bring all that
together.
-Yeah, man.
Positive, man.
DAJUAN HORTON: First event we got is gonna be Saturday at
the KKK rally, and we're gonna try to scoop everybody up and
go down there, just to show them, know what I'm saying?
That we don't want to hear none of that.
East side, nigga!
East Memphis was predominantly white at first, and like, it
was real pretty.
So they started moving black people out here, and then it
started looking a little different.
And then you know, so east side is where we hold it down.
-You good?
DAJUAN HORTON: Eddie my guy right here.
Man, I want to tell you about that DUI, man.
We gonna come together.
Everybody coming together.
-Yeah, man.
Positive.
DAJUAN HORTON: Divine United International.
We want college boys, gang bangers, everything
you can think of.
You hear me?
East side, nigga!
-My guy.
DAJUAN HORTON: There go my other guy.
-What up, man?
DAJUAN HORTON: East side.
East side.
East side.
-Look at that, he spending [INAUDIBLE].
DAJUAN HORTON: East side.
East side.
East side.
East side.
-You know how we do it.
-Y'all hear about the rally?
-Downtown.
-What did you say about the KKK?
-What do you feel about people destroying
Memphis, your home city?
Racial war.
-No.
DAJUAN HORTON: See how we can get together?
We should be able to do this anywhere.
White person with tattoos, black people with tattoos, it
ain't even about the tattoos, it's about the color, man.
You feel me?
We should be able to travel without having to watch your
backs.
-This a group hug to the whole Memphis.
DAJUAN HORTON: You should be able to walk down your own
street without having to watch your back.
ROCCO CASTORO: I managed to arrange a last minute super
secret meeting with a man who would refer to himself as
Exalted Cyclops Edward, the same man who had announced the
Klan rally to the local media.
He wasn't shy about giving his opinions on race.
White man and a black woman just rolled
by on a four wheeler.
What do you feel about that?
That's disgusting.
ROCCO CASTORO: Yeah?
EXALTED CYCLOPS EDWARD: Stick with your own race.
ROCCO CASTORO: So I imagine you're not so
happy with our president?
EXALTED CYCLOPS EDWARD: No.
Not at all.
Well, yeah, I'm very happy with him.
ROCCO CASTORO: Yeah?
EXALTED CYCLOPS EDWARD: You know, I've got to say he has
made the Klan a lot stronger.
That's the only thing good he's done.
I think this is going to be a larger rally then they've seen
here in Memphis.
There's so much media involved with it, with the gang members
and all of that, that they're concerned it's
gonna be a huge riot.
ROCCO CASTORO: When you go to the rally, what are you going
to say to people?
What is your--
EXALTED CYCLOPS EDWARD: We're not here for the black race,
for the Mexican race.
We're here because of the changing of our
parks, and that's it.
You won't hear the n-word coming out
of anybody up there.
You know, our Imperial Wizards already told everyone coming,
do not use the n-word.
We're here about our parks being changed, and that's it.
We're an organization that tries to stand up for the
white rights, and people are so
scared to stand up together.
And we're trying to tell them, come out, quit being
worried about it.
And let's stand together and take over, take
back what is ours.
-Come here.
-Stay out of the frame.
-Come here, come here.
Come back.
Come back.
-Gotta go.
ROCCO CASTORO: OK.
See you, guys.
So, I don't know what happened.
I don't know if they were spooked by the four wheeler
again, but something's going on.
I think we should probably get the fuck out of here.
That's what my spider sense is telling me.
What happened?
-Uh, the guy on the four wheeler.
ROCCO CASTORO: Yeah?
-Questioning one of our guys up front.
ROCCO CASTORO: OK.
-And then three cops pulled in and followed the guy on the
four wheeler in, so we didn't know what was going on.
ROCCO CASTORO: Oh, wow.
-You know, he left, he come by with a black girl on the back,
they come back with a white girl on the back.
ROCCO CASTORO: Yep.
-And I noticed he had a police radio on the
front of the four wheeler.
ROCCO CASTORO: Oh, OK.
SCOTT SHEPHERD: Let me tell you, the hiding behind their
mask, and the dog, and all this, I mean, that's just part
of them trying to put on a show.
If they were who they would say they were, they're
nonviolent, peaceful people, why are they not right here in
this park with their mask off, talking to you today?
At one time, I was a white supremacist.
I was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and I came to a point in
my life where I just changed.
And that's where I am today.
I'm a reformed racist, and trying to end racism.
Let me tell you, the Klan does not care one thing about the
name of these parks.
They do not care.
The only reason they're here is because they're using it as
a tool, and an excuse to come here and cause trouble.
I mean, they're coming here to protest the renaming of a
park, and if you look at it, they're the reason that the
park's being renamed.
ROCCO CASTORO: Have you been threatened at all, leading up
to this rally?
SCOTT SHEPHERD: Yes.
Yes.
-So the little white knights trying to call you.
Are you just a crackhead who can't afford to pay your bill
and it'll just go to your voicemail?
The little white knights will set you straight.
You don't like the rally?
Tough shit.
SCOTT SHEPHERD: I can handle the threats.
I know I'm doing the right thing.
I'm fighting for a cause that is really important, so it's
really no concern.
[MUSIC PLAYING]
ROCCO CASTORO: The night before the rally, I attended a
Unitarian Church service that was called by over a dozen
local pastors who had rallied their respective congregations
to celebrate Memphis unity and pray that the city would
persevere, regardless of the outcome of the Klan rally.
MATT ANZIVINO: You know, when we heard about the rally
that's taking place tomorrow in the city,
[INAUDIBLE], what do you do?
And we felt prompted that we should have a prayer rally.
If there's going to be a Klan rally, then we're going to
have a prayer rally.
Man, it can't be fixed politically.
It can't be fixed financially.
It can't be fixed educationally.
But when you face something as big as what this city is
facing tomorrow, we need divine intervention.
We division, we curse prejudice.
We curse the ancient ruins that have tried to destroy a
city, and we decree, and we declare it here today--
DANIEL MOORE: The Klan, what they're doing, they don't
represent Christianity.
Certainly they don't represent, really, the vast
majority of people.
I wanted my friends and my neighbors who would be hurt by
what's going on to know that we're not afraid to stand with
Him, and say, we don't agree with it, and it's wrong.
ROCCO CASTORO: With concerns do you have about what may
happen tomorrow at the rally?
DANIEL MOORE: I'm praying for rain, and so I'm praying that
it'll be rained out.
ROCCO CASTORO: The next morning, it appeared that the
church goers' prayers had been answered.
A steady trickle of rain fell from the gray sky.
The Klan was there, as well as counter protesters from
various anti-fascist groups from around the country.
JUSTIN SLEDGE: The statue dedicated to him remained at
the park, and we raised the demand that it should be taken
down immediately.
If there was a statute of Adolf Hitler in central
Berlin, it would come down.
There's no way that's possible.
And this man is a symbol of tyranny, murder, and lynching
for the vast majority of this city.
ROCCO CASTORO: There were also several hundred police
officers from Memphis and surrounding areas dressed in
full riot gear.
It was clear that this time, unlike 1998, the cops weren't
going to let the public, protesters, or Klan meet, or
even within sight or earshot of each other.
[SHOUTING]
-Hey, that motherfucker work at Wal-Mart!
-Stay out of Memphis!
-Cops and the Klan work hand in hand!
ROCCO CASTORO: I was siphoned into a media pigpen where the
cops had cornered everyone and stood around a lot.
So we're in the press tent here.
Can't really get a clear shot.
They're not letting out second photographer in.
Total media blackout, which is an
interesting way to do things.
For now, though, it's just a complete wash all around,
literally and figuratively.
-Members of the Klan gather during a steady rain in
downtown Memphis at the old courthouse, their protest
sparked by the recent renaming of three
Confederate themed parks.
Their number, though, around 60, far outnumbered by
[INAUDIBLE].
[SHOUTING]
ROCCO CASTORO: So, what are we doing here?
-It's a good day for a cold shout.
Let's put it this way.
Nobody in government here, city of county, wanted these
guys to have a huge success on their hands.
They're honoring free speech, but they're not necessarily
easing the way toward this particular
kind of free speech.
Whatever statement they want to make is not being made now.
ROCCO CASTORO: DaJuan and the Crips, on the other hand, were
nowhere to be found.
[PHONE RINGING]
DAJUAN HORTON: I'm on the way back now.
I'm about five minutes from my house.
ROCCO CASTORO: Five minutes away?
DAJUAN HORTON: Yes, sir.
Make that about six.
I'm driving slow in the rain.
ROCCO CASTORO: Rain was always a threat.
Now that it's here?
DAJUAN HORTON: I mean, it would be nice to take a stand,
but, what I've got going, I think we can go with this, and
we can not go to the rally, because it's raining.
ROCCO CASTORO: And so you're not gonna go?
DAJUAN HORTON: No, I'm not gonna go?
ROCCO CASTORO: Not going.
DAJUAN HORTON: Like, my mother, she was telling me
that she had a bad feeling about it, and it was just
staying on her.
And then it started raining, so it's like, if it rains, I
guess it wasn't meant for me to go down there, you know?
ROCCO CASTORO: Yeah.
DAJUAN HORTON: I'm glad.
And I'm sure that if I don't go down there, nobody's gonna
get hurt, hopefully.
ROCCO CASTORO: And if it stops raining, will you go?
DAJUAN HORTON: Yes.
I'm pretty sure they weren't sitting around for me, either.
ROCCO CASTORO: Memphis kind of shuts down when it rains, huh?
DAJUAN HORTON: Yeah.
ROCCO CASTORO: OK.
Well, good luck.
DAJUAN HORTON: Same to you.
ROCCO CASTORO: And stay safe.
DAJUAN HORTON: Thank you guys for coming down here.
ROCCO CASTORO: Yeah, yeah.
DAJUAN HORTON: DUI.
ROCCO CASTORO: DUI.
After the rally, we traveled back to Mississippi to the
Imperial Wizard's house.
He had scheduled a cross illumination ceremony,
inviting all the rally's attendees, including skinheads
and other white supremacists who had attended the event.
-Mississippi.
Ku Klux Klan is like fried chicken in Mississippi.
It just goes hand in hand.
You got fried chicken, and you got the Ku Klux Klan.
-Red is really not--
and you know, in the Klans of America, red used
to be like a titan.
My last rank before becoming Imperial
Wizard was a Grand Dragon.
I had changed robes so many times, I decided
just to keep the red.
It's kind of like my trademark, man.
Everybody knows me by it.
I go to a rally, and people will be like, hey, that's him
right there.
ROCCO CASTORO: And how does it work, though?
With like, how do you move up through the ranks?
-Just work, hard work, and having a heart for it.
Not everybody has a heart for it.
The people that's out here tonight, that drove for miles
and miles and miles, they have a heart for it.
ROCCO CASTORO: Where are you from?
Where'd you come in from today?
-Baltimore, Maryland.
ROCCO CASTORO: How did you become
involved with White Knights?
-A couple months ago, my wife got fired from Walmart.
I believed it to be a racial discrimination case, so I
googled white right lawyers, and you'll
come up empty handed.
Nothing exists.
All I could find was the Ku Klux Klan.
-Do we hate black people?
No, we don't hate black people.
Do we hate homosexuals?
No, we're against the sin.
We're against race mixing, in a way.
It's not right against people, we just want to save people,
that's all it is.
We have a right to believe the way we want to, just like they
have a right to believe the way they want to.
-Klansman, do you accept the light?
-Klansman, I accept the life.
-You know, we've had two rallies back to back.
Different groups, but I mean, the presence
is definitely here.
I mean, I think a lot of people are starting to realize
that, uh-oh, they're coming back.
-Gotta get that fire back there in the--
ROCCO CASTORO: Was this one of the larger turnouts you've had
for one of these illuminations?
-This is one of the larger ones.
I've been to bigger, but this is pretty big.
From different types of groups.
You had not just Klansmen here tonight.
ROCCO CASTORO: And were you happy with today's proceedings
at the rally?
-I was very happy with the way everything went, because I do
that all for that man.
That was for Nathan Bedford Forrest.
-Klansmen, march!
Klansmen, [INAUDIBLE]!
-[INAUDIBLE]!
-Klansmen, for Mississippi!
-For Mississippi!
-For Nathan Bedford Forrest!
-For Nathan Bedford Forrest!
-Klansmen of the Ku Klux Klan!
-Of the Ku Klux Klan!
-Klansmen, approach the cross.
ROCCO CASTORO: Where do you see things going for the Klan
in the next 10 years?
-Nothing but growth.
I believe that when Barack Obama was first elected to
office, I believe people was like, I don't know what's
going to happen here.
I'm gonna wait and see.
Now people are really upset about it, especially whites.
I believe we're really fed up and tired of it.
-Klansmen, salute the cross!
-I just want to thank everybody for coming down and
supporting us in Memphis.
I really appreciate it.
I live in Memphis.
I deal with them niggers every day.
Thank you all.
-White power!
-White power!
-White power!
-White power!
-White power!
-White power!
-Let's pray that today made a difference in our lives, and
Nathan Bedford Forrest, his name will still stay.
White power!
-White power!
