Dwight Lewis wrote in his column in the Tennessean about three recent incidents in which seemingly inconceivable acts of inhumanity have been in the news, including a recent anti-immigration rally held by the KKK in which "the Mexicans" were the target of jeers:
"The summer issue of the Intelligence Report, published by the Southern Poverty Law Center, said the National Knights of the Ku Klux Klan held an anti-immigration rally in Russellville, Ala., that drew more than 300 Klansmen and Klan supporters."
"'Let's get rid of the Mexicans,' robed Klansmen are said to have yelled as they burned a 22-foot-high cross."
"Mercy! Mercy! Mercy!"
