What an ICONIC IMAGE!\u00a0The irony is obvious, yet it is also hypocritical as well. That's why I love it.\r\nWhat this picture show is people can put\u00a0aside their biases.\r\nThis Klansman found\u00a0himself in a bad situation at a rally gone bad. American citizens were\u00a0not happy with him and his fellow Klansmen spouting hatred, and the crowd grew very\u00a0hostile.\r\nFearing for his life, the Klansman runs to the police for protection.\r\nYou can see where he the Klansman is\u00a0standing, and how suddenly he\u00a0doesn't care about color, he cares about character.\r\nThen look at\u00a0the\u00a0black cop. Stoic, determined, one-minded. He must be willing to protect a man who just minutes earlier was showcasing his hatred of him, based solely on his color. Yet the black cop does his job.\r\nHe doesn't have to like it, and in fact he gives no thought to who the man is. HE REPRESENTS AMERICA!\r\nSomething tells me that Klansman was forever changed in that moment, when he learned that America won't tolerate hatred. He also learned that he was wrong about black people. How many stories like this do you know, when people were forced into situations to confront their demons, and came out better?
