According to a report from the Guardian, an online database for a neo-Confederate group revealed that its members past and present included elected officials, professors and service members. What are your thoughts?

Marilyn Mccullum, San Antonio
We already know this — it has been this way for centuries.

Kenny Gram, Washington, D.C.
Who was surprised and why? That goes way back generation after generation. That’s no secret — it’s been that way for years. Let’s not forget the judges. They just don’t want to admit it.

Sean Stewart, Washington, D.C.
Best believe they’ll destroy this country if they can’t have it.

Jeremiah Johnson, Cleveland
It’s the same way they secretly belonged to the Klan.

Maddy Ore, Washington, D.C.
The only way for them to gain and keep control of America was to create positions of power in every angle of American society. From politics to religion, education, housing and to policing Black and brown people. Not so much about politics this time, but more [about] protecting their race.
