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:

https://twitter.com/oldpicsarchive/status/977707909969739776/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.covertbookreport.com%2F
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…

One Response to The KKK Takes A Beating

    I understand that you don’t like the KKK, as well as me, but your writing is absolutely awful. Also, you do not know anything about fighting. That is not the stance of a trained fighter.

  • When Orcas Island Had A Sea Serpent
    May 1909, off the North Shore of Orcas Island, Washington State: “As Baker ran he saw the water begin foaming out past the reef, and the head of a huge serpent rose from the roiling waters. Ten feet and more of the monster’s head surfaced, and his undulating body rose in and out of the […]
  • Mixed Review: “Fault Lines” By Kruse And Zelizer
    It’s not often that I give mixed reviews, I usually select books that I am truly interested in. Additionally, I rarely quit reading a book I intend to review, but that’s exactly what I did with this book. I initially really wanted to read this book to reinforce my reckoning of news from my teen […]
  • Monkey Business: Two Very Different Bigfoot Books
    In these crazy times, I have had a need to take a break from political research. What I found is as informative and interesting as it is scary. That is, reading up on Bigfoot-Sasquatch, which probably for the same reason I found, has hit an all-time high public interest cycle. Bigfooters, or “Squatchers”, as they […]
  • Review: “How Fascism Works” By Jason Stanley
    I really appreciate when an author can boil complex ideas down to easily understandable concepts. “How Fascism Works – The Politics of Us and Them” by Professor Jason Stanley is just such a book. Stanley, a Yale professor has produced an examination of fascism that is reflected in the current state of American affairs. Fascism […]
  • Review: “Devolution” By Max Brooks
    People who read this blog have probably noted a change in the material I have reviewed lately. Recent subjects include: permaculture, radicalism in the 1970’s, pre-history revisionism, and yes, Bigfoot. The fact is, I am in a political burn-out mode and needed some breathing room with off-beat subject matter. Rarely do I read fiction, but […]
