Another quote from Albert Pike

* As owner-publisher of the Memphis, Tennessee, Daily Appeal, Albert
Pike wrote in an editorial on April 16, 1868: "With negroes for
witnesses and jurors, the administration of justice becomes a
blasphemous mockery. A Loyal League of negroes can cause any white
man to be arrested, and can prove any charges it chooses to have
made against him. ...The disenfranchised people of the South ... can find no protection for property, liberty or life, except in secret association.... We would unite every white man in the South, who is
opposed to negro suffrage, into one great Order of Southern Brotherhood, with an organization complete, active, vigorous, in which a few should execute the concentrated will of all, and whose
very existence should be concealed from all but its members._"*

* - Albert Pike on KKK -

Fictions are necessary to the people, and the Truth becomes deadly to those who are not strong enough to contemplate it in all its brilliance. In fact, what can there be in common between the vile multitude and sublime wisdom? The truth must be kept secret, and the
masses need a teaching proportioned to their imperfect reason.

I took my obligation to White men, not to Negroes. When I have to
accept Negroes as brothers or leave Masonry, I shall leave it.
