Daryl Davis is a Chicago blues musician, who uses his friendship with KKK to convince members to leave this organization. He successfully persuaded 25 former white supremacists that there’s another way. Davis has his own strategy, he explains and talks to people in more than friendly way, that allows to prevent usual misunderstanding. 


‘They may be yelling and screaming or pounding the table, but at least they’re talking, they’re not fighting.’

Davis choose to disarm them with polite conversation and smile. And this worked out. 
It doesn’t mean he’s anti-Black, he just chose his own path. No need to spread fake facts. This is very important!

He also asked, “Have you ever gotten criticism from black folks?”
“Of
 course,” Davis replied. “Absolutely. Not black people who are friends 
of mine, who know me and understand where I’m coming from. Some black 
people who have not heard me interviewed or read my book jump to 
conclusions and prejudge me … I’ve been called Uncle Tom. I’ve been 
called an Oreo.” It doesn’t sway him:
“I had one guy from an NAACP branch chew me up one side and down the 
other, saying, you know, we’ve worked hard to get ten steps forward. 
Here you are sitting down with the enemy having dinner, you’re putting 
us twenty steps back.“
I pull out my robes and hoods and say, “look, this is what I’ve done 
to put a dent in racism. I’ve got robes and hoods hanging in my closet 
by people who’ve given up that belief because of my conversations sitting down to dinner. They gave it up. How many robes and hoods have you collected?” And then they shut up.”

“How many robes and hood have you collected?”
JFC, this is the most badass response tho this whole “no talking to bigots, only yelling and getting them fired!” crowd. He’s awesome.
