    Child of a KKK member is innocently curious about a black police officer. (1992) this photo is just ... Incredible

  • Christine Brandt

    September 6, 1992. The Ku Klux Klan, suffering lagging membership and hoping for revival, held a KKK rally in Gainesville, Georgia. Freelance photographer, Todd Robertson, captured this image of a three year old boy who was fascinated by the riot shield of African American State Trooper, Allen Campbell. The gripping nature of the photo, which speaks to the sad fact of racist indoctrination of children, led civil rights champion, Southern Poverty Law Center to use the photo in racism prevention.

    I think this is THE WORST photo I have ever seen. Teaching children to hate should be a crime. "Here is a Georgia State Trooper in riot gear at a KKK protest in a north Georgia city back in the 80s. The Trooper is black. Standing in front of him and touching his shield is a curious little boy dressed in a Klan hood and robe."

Here is a Georgia State Trooper in riot gear at a KKK protest in a north Georgia city back in the 80s. The Trooper is black. Standing in front of him and touching his shield is a curious little boy dressed in a Klan hood and robe. I have stared at this picture and wondered what must have been going through that Trooper’s mind. Before the Trooper is an innocent child who is being taught to hate him because of the color of his skin.

Noone who sees the photo soon forgets it: A small boy, about 3 years old, dressed in a child-sized Ku Klux Klan robe and pointed hat, reaches out to touch his reflection in a riot shield as the African-American trooper holding the shield looks down at him. It was a fleeting moment away from the main action during a Barrow County Ku Klux Klan group’s rally on Sept. 5, 1992, in downtown Gainesville, and just before the little boy’s mother pulled him away.

June 12, 1886, The Georgia State Supreme Court sustained the will of the late David Dickson. This made Amanda Eubanks the wealthiest Negro in America. Mr. Dickson, a former slaveholder, willed more than half a million dollars to Ms. Eubanks. White relatives of Dickson, a bachelor, had contested the will on the grounds that it was illegal for a white man to leave property to his black illegitimate children.
