Оценок: 105576 | Просмотров: 2245585
A chance encounter with members of the Ku Klux Klan led black musician Daryl Davis on a quest to determine the source of the hate. His unorthodox, yet simple approach, has wielded surprising results and just might be the solution for all racial discourse. Daryl Davis graduated from Howard University with a degree in Jazz. As a pianist, vocalist, and guitarist, he performs nationally and internationally with The Daryl Davis Band. He has also worked with such notables as Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley’s Jordanaires, The Legendary Blues Band, and many others. In 1983, A chance occurrence after one of his performances led him to befriend a member of the Ku Klux Klan. This eventually led Daryl to become the first black author to travel the country interviewing KKK leaders and members, all detailed in his book, Klan-Destine Relationships. Today, Daryl owns numerous Klan robes and hoods, given to him by active members who became his friends and renounced the organization. Since his journey began, Davis has joined an all-white country band, attended KKK rallies, and accepted a “certificate of friendship” from the Traditionalist American Knights of the KKK. He’s even the godfather of former Klan Imperial Wizard Roger Kelly’s granddaughter. Davis has received the Elliott-Black and MLK awards as well as numerous other local and national awards for his work in race relations, and is often sought by media outlets as a consultant on the KKK and race relations. He is also an actor with stage and screen credits, appearing in the critically acclaimed HBO police drama, The Wire, and most recently, as the subject of the documentary Accidental Courtesy, which filmed his real life encounters with Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi leaders as he helps to dismantle racism across the United States Davis has received the Elliott-Black and MLK awards as well as numerous other local and national awards for his work in race relations, and is often sought by media outlets as a consultant on the KKK and race relations.

This is what a fighter against inequality does. He sits down and talks and not see himself a victim of the system. Excellent video, glad I watched it

This guy is a fake, a liar and an actor. He is nothing but a shill and a nobody. He's only here to push a narrative to brainwash you to think this is how they think and operate. Lies, lies, lies. This guy is a fake. He's paid to say this. The movement does not project hate and respects everyone's right to be self determining separately.

I don't need to even watch it to know this is BS. Might be a few progressive liberals who believe this, the rest of America knows this is propaganda. Proof? I would guarantee this is a leftist speaking, paid for by who? Progressive liberals, any takers?

His speech is an example of why the leaders of the regressives in our country tell their minions to not talk to people. If the leftist extremists took the time to talk to other people and understand what they knew the regressive left would fall apart

i wonder if this is where the image of "uncle ruckus" in boondocks came from. They look exactly the same... except this guy is great. Takes a lot to be that guy especially during the times he done it in.

I normally find Ted talks dealing with race relations really simple minded, but this one is the exception. This is not only the formula to end racism, but it is also the one to mend the political divide of a polarized world. Simply the best Ted talk I have seen

Ending racism will not happen by diversity but by enjoying each others culture aka the white man and the asian man. They are living happy together even after world wars. They hold no hatred towards each other. But when people are forced upon a continent that they are not wanted in, and cry racism that is not cool

Thank you sir for your poignant and powerful words. Respect is something I learned early in my life. It has helped me when dealing with someone from a different ideology or culture. That I'm willing to meet them halfway is enough for most to open dialogue.

No explanation of why Kelly left the Klan or what he is doing now. The documentary infers it was because of Davis. The crux of this issue is that Kelly keeps his prejudiced mindset because he was raised on it...yet, cannot seem to grow up and see things for how they are. Davis, to some extent, seems attracted to the privilege he feels he's earned being invited to Klan rallies - not sure this is a good thing? Race-hate should be outlawed and enforced. If America wasn't such a deceitful society we'd respect our laws and prove we're not all hypocrites and cowards.

Sorbet (3 дня назад)
I think this should be used more for changing things, not using hate against hate. Revenge is not efficient, and the same goes with criminals and prison sentences. I don't believe in long prison sentences, because that doesn't help. That's like revenge because people are angry at the criminal because they did something bad. And I understand the anger, I'm angry too and it doesn't mean that their crime is ok. But we should be more concentrated on changing the person's behaviour, understanding why they did what they did and then trying to change them and make them understand that it's wrong. Because that's the only way to make them stop. If we are angry at them and make them suffer for a long time, when they get out of prison, they will most likely do it again. We should look it as a psychological problem which it is and then try to fix it, not just trying to fix the consequence of the problem.
