Former Klansman Apologizes To Rep. John Lewis

This interview deals with the phenomenally improbable apology a now elderly Klansman offered to Rep. John Lewis, for having beaten him at a civil rights rally in the 1960s.  I just ran across this quote from a MLK speech which seems almost eerie in its prophetic significance when read against the background of the CNN video.  If this man, so full of hatred, can change, perhaps there is hope for even the most hard-hearted advocates of abortion. “No, we must not lose faith in our white brothers.

Solomon [mailto:rachel.l.solomon@gmail.com] Sent: Thursday, May 28, 2009 7:45 PM To: Gregg Cunningham Subject: Regarding “pro-abortion”   Dear CBR, My name is Rachel Solomon and I am a student at the University of Washington and a reporter for The Daily, the school’s student newspaper. The Genocide Awareness Project visited our campus this week and I reported on it. I do not wish to comment on the graphic images on display, as my own views are quite contrary to the ones expressed – a fact that, I might add, did not come into play in my unbiased news reporting.
