If a biracial woman of obvious African descent were to confront Neo Nazis and members of the Ku Klux Klan, you would think the reaction might be something akin to the Westboro Baptist Church, which is known for its hateful messages. But instead, it’s said they were simply confused and may have even been hiding a smile.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, if you think this story is strange then you should read the one about the African American undercover cop who infiltrated the KKK.
The woman in this case is a filmmaker named Mo Asumang, who is the daughter of a black Ghanaian father and a white German mother. As part of filming her documentary called The Aryans, she traveled to Germany to talk to Neo Nazis and also met with KKK members in the United States. She believes the best way to combat racism is to simply meet racist people face to face because meeting a biracial person “totally confuses them because I’m not like they want me to be.”
Interestingly enough, while Asumang says that while some of the demonstrators ignored her or simply were cold in their demeanor, she thinks they were curious because they do not know much about the people they claim to hate:
“These people don’t actually talk to Jews. They don’t talk to black people. They don’t know their enemy, so-called enemy. So what they do, when they talk to me, they talk to reality, and that’s the first thing they have to survive.”
Asumang also pointed out that if you hang around Neo Nazis and KKK members and act normally that they may drop their guard and behave the same in return:
“So I stand there, maybe I smile at them, and because it’s a human reaction, you wanna smile back. So I see them trying to hold down the smile, and that’s something very very interesting.”
What do you think about Mo Asumang’s documentary about the Neo Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan?
