I am having a hard time with this one... did you all hear about the woman who was invited to a KKK initiation ritual in Louisiana and then shot when she tried to leave? Its horrible. The woman was from Oklahoma, but attended this ritual and then decided to leave. Heres the story: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,450345,00.html (sorry, blogger isnt being friendly, I cant create a link, you will have to copy & paste).
To be fair here, maybe she was journalists looking for a story and then tried to leave, and then was shot? Maybe she got a bit morals before the rituals took place and figured NO GOOD DECENT HUMAN would partake in such acts and tried to leave.
Either way, shes dead. So, now the KKK doesnt discriminate anymore either? Now they kill their own too?
To sum up the city of Slidell, I found these stats (courtesy of http://www.city-data.com/city/Slidell-Louisiana.html)
Races in Slidell:
White Non-Hispanic (81.2%)
Two or more races (1.4%)
American Indian (1.0%)
Other race (0.6%)
Get this stat: "According to our research there were 22 registered sex offenders living in Slidell, Louisiana in early 2007."
Um.. .hello... ?
Population in July 2007: 27,185. Population change since 2000: +6.0%

Median resident age: 37.0 years
Louisiana median age: 34.0 years
I hope the 8 people whom were arrested get their photos slathered across the media and I hope they get the Apache treatment. I just find it hard to have sympathy for any member of the KKK... I somehow dont think they partake in good decent community service. I see them as being very one-sided in their thoughts.
It still baffles me how these "cults" or groups can still exist. It baffles me that in today's world, we still have so many stupid and ignorant thinking minded people.
For my disclosure statement, I am NOT saying everyone in Slidell is in the KKK or behaves in such a way that one would associate them into such group. I am merely sprouting off some statistics in order to enlighten us on the region which was highlighted, if you will, in the media due to a dumbass person!

For the most part, my friends and family can see what I might be up to in the days events. Or, for sake of sakes, its all made up... only i know.. and MAYBE a select few of you! Either way~ I am an American living in Australia. Oh, and any photo you see on this blog IS NOT FOR YOUR USE.
