GREENSBORO, N.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Walker (R-N.C.) today released the following statement in response to the reported KKK rally planned for May in Randolph County:

“I despise bringing any awareness to such despicable behavior; however, such hate needs to be rebuked. The KKK rally planned for May in Randolph County is a reminder of the hateful ideologies that exists within a minuscule group.

“The Scriptures state 'anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them.’ This darkness is saturated in ignorance, denying that God has created every man, woman, boy and girl uniquely with exceptional skills and talent.

“The rally may be constitutional, but this group's message and legacy are an affront to our core value that all people are created equal. I would hope the people of North Carolina reject this behavior not with violence, but with actions that represent genuine love for all in our community.”
