The ugly side of Duarte

(July 16, 2007)

We had a very strange event happen at CoH last night. Actual KKK guys in hoods, driving up in their pickup trucks. Apparently they mistook our encampment for one of the immigrant camps that have popped up in the suburbs and in rural California. They showed up here and were disappointed to find out that we weren't all Mexican or Centro-Americano. It was like a scene out of Blazing Saddles. One thing: they won't be free to look for people to beat up. A couple of deputies hauled them away to Goddess only knows where. I don't know if they're taking arrestees to Twin Towers or some other place.

The crisis is starting to bring out the worst in people. I don't like that.
