For us Filipinos, KKK doesn’t mean the Ku Klux Klan. For us it is the Revolutionary Army of our ancestors who fought for our country’s freedom from colonization and oppression. For us Filipinos it means…
Ang Kataastaasan, Kagalanggalangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan
[Supreme and Most Honorable Society of the Children of the Nation ]
So in the Philippines, KKK is not a symbol of racism. It is a symbol of the fight for freedom; and in the long run, a symbol of freedom itself.
