Klu Klux Klan and race wars

I just read a very interesting transcript from a TV interview by Andrew Denton with a previous Grand Imperial Wizard from the Klu Klux Klan, Johnny Lee Clary.

The blurb states:
Life is full of journeys but rarely do any of us travel as far as Johnny Lee Clary. A former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, now a Christian preacher, his journey from a world of hate to one of tolerance has been remarkable indeed.
Quite an insightful (brief) look at the workings of racism and prejudice.

I was chatting to a mate the other day who came to Australia from Serbia/Croatia during the recent conflict. When I asked him what side he had been on his comment was, "It doesn't matter". I thought and said that if all our generation could have that attitude, then this would be the last generation of racial conflict to the point of genocide.
