KKK Granted Protest Permit in Memphis
The Loyal White Knights – a Ku Klux Klan chapter – has been granted a permit to protest the renaming of three public parks in Memphis, TN.
The names of the three parks are all related to the Confederacy.
The march will take place on March 30th.
The planned protest is in response to the renaming of Nathan Bedford Forrest Park, Jefferson Davis Park and Confederate Park by the City Council on Feb. 5.
The name change angered fans of Forrest, a slave trader and Confederate cavalryman who was a member of the first version of the Klan. Supporters of the changes say Forrest was a racist who should not be honored with a park.
We have something called Freedom of Speech in America, but should that include hate speech?
Is the decision to grant the KKK a protest permit justifiable?
