The Ku Klux Klan: Love Lives Here (Ku Klux Klan. Tu mieszka miłość)
Katarzyna Surmiak-Domańska
published by Czarne, Wołowiec

A close up of KKK
The writer takes us on a journey to the US Bible Belt. In Arkansas, she takes part in a national assembly of the Ku Klux Klan Knights Party. While analysing the activity of this racist organisation, she discovers the mental absurdities of the party demagogy.
In the town of Harrison, where “love lives”, KKK head Thomas Robb claims that Christ was a racist: the white are the descendants of the chosen people, the white are threatened by extinction as they carry the genetic flaw of mercy. The pastor’s texts are published regularly on the website of the world forum of white nationalists. It was visited by Anders Breivik, who showed no mercy to anyone on 22 July 2011.
