Cahoots with the KKK?

The man, who earlier was holding his own small, green bible, was infuriated. He tried to debate the ISUPK on the merits of religious content. After nearly 10 minutes of yelling against the amplified guys standing on the small stage, his friend tried to pull him away from the confrontation. He screamed that the ISUPK guys were just spouting racist words. What happened next was quite odd.

As his friend pulled him away, the man pointed directly at me. He accused the ISUPK of being affiliated with the “KKK,” and shouted that I was in cahoots with the amplified fellows because I appeared with them on the corner every Saturday.

I don’t know who was more shocked at the man’s presumption—the ISUPK fellows or me. Anyway, it doesn’t matter everyone's saying; the neighborhood just wishes everyone would say it a little quieter.
