KKK Hoods, Robes Sell For $600 Each At Controversial Auction

A controversial auction in Chesterfield County, Va., Monday included the sale of Ku Klux Klan hoods, robes and other paraphernalia.

Dozens of people placed bids on the KKK memorabilia at Dixon's Auction House during a sale that caused a stir in the local community, according to a report.

Several KKK outfits sold for about $600 each.

"We don't do it to be derogatory or anything like that, it's just our culture and we enjoy it," customer Tammie Campbell said.

1. Tammie Campbell is an IDIOT!
What sort of culture is that to "enjoy?" What a stupid, thoughtless remark!!

Scary too...scratch that surface, and you can still find a few people who long for the "good old days." I'm appalled!

According to auctioneers, a black family in Ettrick owned the KKK hoods and robes.

Pretty weird if you ask me
