Grapestreet Crips Team Up With KKK To Fight Other KKK Members [VIDEO]


MEMPHIS, TN ( – It’s an unlikely team. A local gang is teaming up
with members of the Ku Klux Klan to protest a planned Klan rally in Memphis at
the end of next month.

A member of the Grape Street Crips says he and his
gang want to cripple a KKK rally that’s planned for Memphis, and the gang is
ganging up with Klansmen to do just that.

When Dajuan Horton learned
about the KKK’s plans for a rally in Memphis, he decided to take a

“The first thing I was thinking was the largest rally you’ve even
seen and you’re telling us about it. You’re sending the first blow, we’re not

it didn’t take long for him to decide he wanted to team up with Horton and his

“This young man and the people of the community do not need to fear

folks saying they’re Klan, they’re not Klan.”

Jenkins added, “The Ku Klux
Klan stands for not self but others. How can that be for others arguing over the
name of a park inside of a city that made the decision to rename it? That is the
community’s prerogative.”

Both Horton and Jenkins admit people may be
skeptical that the Klan and gang members can get along, but that’s exactly what
they’re going to do. So far, they city has not approved the permit for the
