Black Man offered leadership position in Klu Klux Klan. Inspiration behind Chapelle Show sketch?

Twenty-five years ago Ron Stallworth was asked to lead the Colorado Springs Chapter of the Klu Klux Klan. That would have made Stallworth the first Black man to lead a branch of the KKK.

According to the Desert News:

About 25 years ago, Ron Stallworth was asked to lead the Ku Klux Klan chapter in Colorado Springs. Problem was, the outgoing Klan leader didn’t know that Stallworth is black.

“He asked me to take over the lead because I was a good, loyal Klansman,” said Stallworth, who had been in constant phone contact with the Klan leader while leading a yearlong Colorado Springs police investigation into the Klan.

Stallworth later moved to Utah, where he recently retired after nearly 20 years as an investigator for the Utah Department of Public Safety. He says he’s amazed that no one ever caught on to the investigation he led starting in 1979. After he was offered Klan leadership, he quietly disappeared.

As a memento Stallworth still carries his Klan membership card — signed by David Duke.

How politically correct have we gotten when even the KKK institutes and Affirmative Action Program?

On another note: This story does remind me of a skit done on the Chapelle Show about a leader in the white supremacist movement who turned out to be a blind black man who had no idea he was black.

I found the video of the sketch, but after watching it, I thought it might be a little too over the top to post. For those of you who have seen it what do you think? Should I post it?
