The Ku Klux Klan is to finally let black people become fully fledged members as long as they are prepared to wear silly hats, according to the press release issued today from the organisation.
Appearing on the organisation’s website the message read “We’re all descended from immigrants anyway so we realised the futility in our obsession with racial purity some time ago. But one thing’s for sure, we all like wearing silly hats and as long as you do too then we’re a broad church, no matter what your ethnicity, religion or sexual persuasion.”
However, the press release also warned that anyone mistaking a new found inclusivity with a free for all would be sadly disappointed.
“Fundamentally we are still an organisation that dresses up in ridiculous garb in the middle of the night. And if you’re not even prepared to wear a silly hat then you can get the hell back to wherever you came from. Even if it’s here.”
The move has received widespread approval with even US president Barack Obama saying he would have considered joining if he was a silly hat person.
Republican Presidential hopeful Donald Trump said that he had absolutely nothing to do with the organisation and if rumours about a new policy on diversity were true, would be unlikely to join in the future.
