The KKK Takes A Beating

March 27, 2018

I’m sorry, I just love this old photo. It’s from “Old Pics Archive” on Twitter, at this link:

I wish I knew the actual circumstances and origin of this photo but it is one of the great action shots of my time. I am ranked (Black Belts) in both Korean Karate (that’s right, almost pre-tkd) and Kenpo but only practice Yang Tai Chi Chuan now that I am older.

What I can tell you about this photo of a powerful black man pounding a KKK asshole is this;
the black dude has had some training. Now, he may simply be a good athlete, or he may have boxing or martial arts experience, perhaps from the military.

This is well past the civil rights movement era, as all the cars in the background are of mid-1970’s vintage. I’m guessing 1974 or about that.

Let’s analyze this guy’s posture; He has Mr. KKK in the grip of his right hand, it appears mid forearm just below the elbow. Lots of leverage and twisting available for control.

He is in what would be considered a “back stance” , tiger stance or sit stance depending on the art.

He is well grounded into his back leg, preparing to move his center of gravity into a powerful left punch. His hand is held down at hip level, which is indicative of a Karate style rather than a western boxer.

It looks like another white guy is coming to rescue the sheet freak but my money is on the black dude, I think he’ll beat the shit out of both of them.

Wish we could see the next picture…
