There are some intense marketing measures taken to reform America’s thought process on crime, smoking, and distracted driving. The images in those ads are disturbing to say the least. But one man has beat them all with his strategy to thwart a distinct crime.
An African American man stood in the busy downtown area of Philadelphia wearing a KKK uniform with a message about black-on-black crime. Mind you, there’s no indication to passersby that this man is black because he’s completely disguised.
His sign read:
“The KKK KILLED 3,446 BLACKS IN 86 YEARS. BLACK ON BLACK MURDERS SURPASS THAT NUMBER EVERY 6 MONTHS.”
While the message is explosive and on point, the uniform upstaged his message and made a city councilman, Curtis Jones, “angry” enough to take a picture of him and post it to Facebook to get the public reaction…which was mixed.
The man turned out to be filmmaker Sixx King, who told local CBS affiliate channel 3:
“We’re bringing awareness to the black hypocrisy, complacency, and apathy in the African American community.”
King has produced a documentary called “Mothers of No Tomorrow” that explores the lives of black mothers that have buried their children as a result of black on black crime. And King said that he doesn’t think that his message will “stop” black on black crime, but hopefully it will cause that person to “think.”
Jones, after “absorbing” King’s message, supports him.
