The Daily Mail is reporting about a highly secret meeting held between the Wyoming Chapter of the NAACP and the Ku Klux Klan in Casper, Wyoming, this past weekend.  The meeting was prompted by the KKK’s passing out their literature in Gillette, Wyoming.

The meeting between Jimmy Simmons, president  of the Casper NAACP, and John Abarr, a KKK organizer from Great Falls, Montana,  was an unprecedented first, according to both groups.

The unlikely meeting even ended with the  KKK’s Abarr paying to join the ranks of the civil rights group when he paid a  $30 membership fee.
