Jon, thanks for sharing. Great article, I think, on the power of one photograph.

I think my favorite line in the piece was the last one: "I was looking in the right direction, I guess."

Jon,

Thanks for sharing this interesting story - that is a fascinating image. It says volumes about the history of the United States in a single photograph.

>Great story!

It is indeed a great story. We can easily produce video today with simple equipment like our phones. But the frozen moment in time characteristic of a photograph still has great communicative power.

Just a footnote to this story: At the time I lived in Alpharetta, Georgia, which is ten or fifteen miles south of Gainesville. At the time most people in Georgia were horrified and embarrassed by this absurd demonstration by KKK members and supporters. It was a very rare event at that time. But, the good part of it, was that my two daughters who were in high school at the time, went up to Gainesville the following week to participate in a counter "unity" demonstration. It was their first social activism and was empowering for them. So... some good came from it.

Larry,

Good to hear that such an event had a positive effect. I tend to forget sometimes how a single point in history can have a profound impact.

Thanks for sharing this great story, Jonathan. I felt a range of emotions while viewing it-anger, sadness, hope. That speaks to the power of a photo, this one in particular.

After moving to mid-west florida from new york i realized it's a whole new world here, i never ever suspected that is such a big diference between north and south...

huge confederate flags can be found from time to time in people's front yards and over 1,000,000 active concealed carry permits - more then in Texas...

Best regards,
Vlad

After looking at the photo again, I wonder what the trooper is thinking. Obviously the child was too young to have a serious idea of what this was all about and sees no reason to restrain its curiosity. On the other hand, the trooper knows all too well what it all means and his actions are restrained by the responsibilities of his job - but his thoughts aren't restrained. I wonder what they were.

That photo makes me sad because it reminds me of how some people think. What's also sad is the "powers that be" have managed to convince the majority that every white person who loves the South and owns a gun is a KKK member/supporter.

Who are you stereotyping here? Southerners, or "the powers that be"?
