At first look, it appears that a lone member of the Ku Klux Klan is marching in Philadelphia. Until people get closer. It is actually Sixx King, who is protesting black on black violence. His Klan costume is certainly getting attention.
Some people give him the finger. Others stop to grab a photo with him. He has been threatened. People are so incensed about this costume, they fail to read his sign he holds. It is to bring attention to black on black crime .
King walks around highly populated areas of the city around lunch time. He has been spotted out front of the Criminal Justice Center. Today he strolled by the Liberty Place shops and towers. Security ran out in to the street and threatened to call the police. King, citing his right to free speech stayed there for about 15 minutes as gawkers snapped photos .
He plans to be out again. He refused to say where he got the Klan costume from. King is actually a negro male and is not a member of the KKK. He did say that "America's black youth should be wearing this hoodie because they have killed more of their own race than the Klan ever did.
