Remembering Hate to Banish It.

     An auction is set for Virginia this week with thousands of items related to African Americans being sold, including offensive articles like this KKK figurine.

     You see many of the items online at The Quinn's Auction galleries website.

     The Washington Post article about it includes pro and con comments about collecting the items:

"Some people buy them to get them out of circulation, to prevent the children of today and adults of tomorrow from ever seeing the way we treated other humans. And to keep racists from having palpable totems of their twisted beliefs."
