Will Muslims Some Day Speak Out?
At that time there were at least three identifiable groups of people. There were the KKK and KKK wannabees. Because of the acts they were committing and their motivations, they would be labeled terrorists today. They were encouraged in their activities by the second group.
The second group, the majority, included most of the good, God-fearing people of Mississippi, plus their political and religious leaders. I said above that the first group was encouraged by the second group. This encouragement was being done, not openly, but with winks and nods.
The third group, were those who were scandalized by what was going on, but with the exception of a few, were too terrified to speak out. For obvious reasons there was no way of counting them. I was in that group.
The goodness of the second group finally emerged. They knew what their Book told them was right. The winks and nods turned to scorn and the atrocities stopped. It was extremely painful for that second group, but they did what they knew they had to do.
