Knights Party Press Release: June 12. 2024

This makes no sense. On Monday June 10. 2024 ran this headline, “DOJ Reaches Settlement With Tennessee School District Over Racial Harassment, ‘Mock Slave Auction’.”

The U.S. Justice Department on Monday, June 10, announced a settlement agreement with a Tennessee school district following an investigation into race-based harassment and discrimination against Black students.

The Justice Department’s investigation into Hawkins County Schools under Titles IV and VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 began in March 2023, after Erika Qualls, the mother of a district student, filed a lawsuit alleging race-based bullying.

The DOJ reviewed 16 incidents that took place between September 2021 and May 2022, including “a mock ‘slave auction’ to sell Black students to their white counterparts, white students’ repeated and open use of the N-word and a ‘monkey of the month’ campaign to ridicule Black students.”

In one of the incidents, a student slapped a Black student in addition to using slurs. Other incidents involved the widespread verbal use of slurs, graffiti of slurs and swastikas, a “KKK drawing,” and race-based mockery related to picking cotton.

“No student should endure mock slave auctions or racial slurs meant to invoke a shameful period in our country’s history when Black people were treated as subhuman,” Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division said in a statement. “Racial harassment undermines a student’s ability to feel safe, eliminates any hope for fostering a supportive educational environment and violates the Constitution’s most basic promise of equal protection. The Justice Department remains committed to protecting the civil rights of all students and will ensure that Hawkins County Schools takes all actions necessary to end racial discrimination in its schools.”

“Do they want black history taught in schools, or don’t they?”, said Thomas Robb, the National Director of the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan, centrally based in Harrison, Arkansas. “You just can’t make some people in America happy. They cry for black history to be taught in public schools, yet when it is, they cry even louder. Here, a teacher attempted to teach black children their history. It wasn’t a lie, it was actually truthful. More truthful than the Critical Race Theory being pushed down childrens throat. Were the blacks slaves? Yes, that’s a fact. Did some pick cotton? Yes again, that is truthful. When my children were of school age, although they were homeschooled, I remember the local schools having plays, or ‘mock foundings of America’ of how the pilgrams arrived in the Mayflower. Did White parents get upset about our White history? Of course not, they were proud. What this amounts to is that blacks in America don’t really want to celebrate their history because without White people, they wouldn’t have any history other than living as uncivilized tribes in the jungles of Africa. Black history doesn’t even compare to White history, so the truth hurts.”
