The KKK Just Really Loves Donald Trump

According to Cosmopolitan, the Ku Klux Klan held a parade to celebrate the election of Donald Trump in North Carolina on Saturday. Right away you might be thinking, “wait seriously?”, I assure you, this actually did happen. 

The parade, which was held in Roxboro, North Carolina, had a full police escort, according to the Burlington Times-News, and there were State troopers stationed around intersections while “30 vehicles drove around the town.” 

It is also reported that “men and women shouted “White power!” and “Hail victory!” from vehicles flying KKK flags, Confederate battle flags, Donald Trump flags and Christian flags” during the parade on Saturday afternoon. 

Sorry to be frank, but this is absolutely 100% not okay.
