KKK parade to celebrate Trump presidency turns into secret motorcade through North Carolina town

On Saturday, members of the KKK drove through Roxboro, North Carolina, in order to celebrate Donald Trump’s presidency.

The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan had previously planned to hold a parade in Pelham, North Carolina, but that didn’t go as planned. In fact, the parade/rally was initially delayed and then, never actually happened.

Roxboro Police Chief David Hess said that officials could not stop the parade but that they understood the distress over the fact that the parade had happened in the first place.

“I and the City of Roxboro do not condone the beliefs of the KKK,” Hess said, according to WNCN, a local CBS affiliate.

“My heart is heavy that our community was chosen by the KKK to spread their message,” he added in a statement on Twitter, later saying, “We owe it to the community to make sure limited exposure and potential acts of violence are minimized. I, nor you, want anyone regardless of color being physically hurt.”
