Black Twitter was in an uproar this weekend after photos emerged of a Klansman rocking locs at a KKK rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Members of the terrorist hate group took to the streets in Charlottesville on Saturday to protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. They were met by hundreds of chiefly pitch-black counter-protestors, including photographer and University of Virginia grad DeVante Cunningham.
Cunningham announced a photograph he took of the Klansman with locs to his Facebook sheet.
The photo quickly extended viral, with countless on social media questioning why a white supremacist would wear a wording so closely associated with black people.
Speaking to the BBC on Monday, Cunningham said that interpreting the three men( who refused to engage with him) was surreal.
” Me and my friend is now in total incredulity ,” Cunningham explained.
” We actually couldn’t believe we had just seen a Klansman with dreads. We’re looking at the KKK here, and dreadlocks are basically a type of African culture ,” he enunciated.” It was really weird to see .”
