Klansman tells Fox Radio his best friends are black, he just believes in racial purity

A white supremacist who claims a religious belief in white supremacy explained his views this week to Fox News radio host Alan Colmes.

William Walters was removed last week from his post on the Tacony (Pa.) Town Watch after city officials discovered he was passing out Ku Klux Klan recruitment literature on the job, although they were previously aware he served as Grand Dragon of the Pennsylvania-based group.

He described the East Coast Knights of the True Invisible Empire as a "white Christian organization," and Colmes reminds him that Jesus wasn't white.


"I don't know that," Walters says after a long pause.

Colmes says Jesus would have been an olive-skinned person of Mediterranean descent, but Walters points out that "he's not black, either."

Walters admits that Jesus associated with society's outcasts and taught that his followers should love everyone.

"He did preach that, yes," Walters concedes. "He preached love."

Colmes asks why his group restricts membership to white Christians only, and Walters brings up the NAACP - which the host reminds him that white people may join.

"We're just showing interest in our race," Walters insists. "Why? Because we want to promote the heritage of our white race. We want to keep it that way."

He admits that the KKK is a white supremacist group, although he claims that it also promotes Christian tenets.

"The reason why we say white Christian is because we're promoting to keep our race pure," Walters says. "The Christian purity would be, we're against homosexuality, we're against white-black (relationships)."

Even so, Walters insists he has "quite a few friends that are black people."

"My best friends are black, but they don't belong to our organization," he says. "We don't believe they should have any relationship, we don't believe in mixed races. It's common sense. If you look at the animal species, let's just say. You don't see a rabbit going with a squirrel."

Colmes asks if he's aware that white people and black people are the same species, and Walters agrees they are.

"In fact, we have a president who's half black and half white, as some are fond of saying, because two people who are of the same species - two animals of the same species - can mate, right?" Colmes says. "So it's not like a squirrel and a human."

Walters concedes this is true, but says the KKK promotes racial purity so children won't get "mixed up" about their heritage.

"(Obama) would ask his parents, ‘Well, what am I, black or white?'" Walters says. "And he should be proud of his heritage - if he's white, he should be proud of it. "

He tells Colmes that he would disown one of his children if they wanted to marry a black person, although he would not immediately do so if they wanted to marry a Jewish person.

"I don't believe that's a race - I believe being Jewish is more of a religion," Walters says, adding that he would accept a Jewish person into his family if they converted to Christianity.

Walters insists he treated his black neighbors fairly during his stint on the neighborhood watch.

"We do believe they should be treated equally, we just don't believe that there should be race mixing," he says. "There should be a difference between black and black and white and white. A child gets raised up, he gets teased in school, he doesn't know what to be proud of - black or white. Everybody should be proud of their heritage."

"We're trying to promote white race and the heritage, just like the blacks," he adds.

What an ugly man...inside and out.
"racial purity " ? I think I hate him.
Anyone in the KKK who says they're Christian is a liar.

I just came from another post where one of our posters here went on and on about how racial impurity is essential and that separate but equal is a good thing. Utterly unbelievable.

I found the timing of this article to be amusing. The same thing was said by a "mom" in here the other day. You can't make this stuff up. Some people are just so ugly.

Yes, I think we are talking about the same person from the same thread.

LMAO

This man is so ignorant.Yet I will give him credit for trying to have a black friend..lol...

Black people and white people are not different species...lol....

This analogy is silly and completely wrong.It is not like comparing a rabbit and squirrel.Black and white are both humans.In dog anology its like comparing a yorkie to a maltese and its pups being a mixed breed.

What this man also doesnt get is we are all mixed in some way.He could be for example a mix of German and Irish.I am a mix of black,carribean,and American Indian.

My kids are a mix of Italian and black.They are very proud of their heritage.They dont chose between black or white.I am black their dad is white.We are an IR couple...So what.As far as I am concerned I married within my own race.The human race!!!

My kids embrace both races/cultures.They spend time with my husbands family and they spend time with mine.We have such a wonderful multicultural family.We all get along.I wish the world could be that way too.I love my family and inlaws so much.

Listen....any kid can get teased.Kids can get teased for being to fat,to tall,to short,to nerdy...whatever.What matters is you raise your kids to be smart and proud.My kids are tough as nails.They understand racism and they know its the racist issue not theirs.The only person confused about pride is a supremacist.

It is ok to be proud of being white.It is just not ok to promote hate,hate crimes,discriminate and to think being white is superior to other races.

I dont wake up in the morning saying yea im black.Let me hand out fliers to promote black supremacy and hate etc.These white supremacist soul life purpose is the color of their skin.That is their value and their purpose.What about education,a career,personality,spirituality a brain?Its very pathetic and sad.Their race is all they have.
