After a few more minutes of small talk, Chuck took the packet of papers from Ken with the promise to complete the application process and get it in the mail in the next few days. He and Ken agreed to talk further on the subject and he took him back to his car. As they rode back Chuck asked Butch about the number of Klan members in Colorado Springs. Butch replied that he did not know and he believed only the State Organizer, Fred Wilkens, knew how many were in the Colorado Springs area. He did say that when Chuck got his membership card it would have on it two letters—CO—which stood for Colorado, followed by a series of numbers.
The “ghost” of Jackie Robinson was later raised during my job interview. I was asked a series of questions regarding my background growing up in the Mexican border community of El Paso, Texas; in particular, what was it like being a young Black male living in a southern state during the height of the civil rights movement of the 1960s. My personal lifestyle was heavily questioned: Was I a womanizer? I was not. Did I like to frequent nightclubs? I wasn’t very active in that scene. Was I a heavy drinker?
The Local Organizer, a Specialist 5 in the Army who was in the process of being discharged, avidly put my name up to the chapter membership for a vote to replace him. It should be noted that the Grand Wizard, David Duke, did not learn he had been “stung” until a newspaper columnist interviewed him in 2006 about my story and informed him about the Black man he had given a membership to 28 years earlier in Colorado Springs. What follows is the story of that “sting” and how I, a Black man, gained membership into the Ku Klux Klan, was asked to assume the leadership role of Local Organizer of the Colorado Springs chapter, became a member of the communist-oriented anti-Klan protest group, Progressive Labor Party, and was asked to establish and lead a chapter of its “front” organization, the Committee Against Racism, in Colorado Springs.
