The South appears to be on the rise again. Didn’t some of you think the Ku Klux Klan had decided to call it quits? Well nothing could be further from the truth. It appears that Hate never sleeps, nor dies.
Sharmeka Moffitt, 20, was in Civitan Park in Winnsboro, Louisiana, when three men approached her in white hoodies and doused her with a flammable liquid then set her on fire, according to CBS. They also took some creamy like substance and wrote “KKK” on her vehicle.
Moffitt suffered third degree burns on more than half of her body Sunday night when she was attacked. Civitan Park does not have video surveillance, so the leads on the crime are slim. At the time of the report, no one has been caught and/or arrested for the vicious crime.
Franklin Sheriff Kevin Cobb said:
“This is a horrific event that will not be taken lightly. Winnsboro Police, Franklin Parish Sheriff, Louisiana State Police, The state fire Marshall’s office and the FBI are investigating.”
This is the type of crime that the South is quite familiar with and this area especially. According to the local NAACP branch President, Otis Chisley, the president of the local branch of the NAACP, Moffitt’s family is “distraught”, but they are awaiting more facts before drawing any conclusion. Chisley was quoted saying
“everyone wants to move with caution.”
He also said, “racism and KKK activity remain a fact of life in the state.”
