I was a member of a group before. Though nothing extreme was really done. It was basically convincing speeches, writting graffitis on walls and trying to get as many as possible in join in. If someone spoke against it or wanted to quit, he/she would be excluded and branded as a traitor. I've been involved since I was 9. An older relative got me included and for a long time I saw nothing wrong.
Something happened (won't go into details) and it's been already 2 years since getting out of the group. I have no intentions of ever going back nor becoming like them again.
No, I don't date former racists

Yes, as long as it's in the past and you changed ok
There was a man in the sixties (I forget his name) who was part of the KKK, he was an extreme member he hated all black people. His son was going to a school that got a new black principle, he had one of the black mothers do something in the school I can't recall what the job was exactly but this man hated the thought and stated to the principle that he wasn't happy about him being there and sure as hell wasn't going to let "niggers" teach his son and dictate what he can and cannot do. So the principle called him out told him fine, he could work with the woman as well. So he did. Long story short after a year of working with her he quit the Clan, and became an active campaigner for reforms. He was awarded multiple times for all of his work in civil rights activism. The fact is people change. If they change for the better to hold their past against them is to essentially condone it because you refuse to let them deviate from that path thus encouraging them to continue down it. So no, I see no issue so long as the person has changed.
You were 9 years old, and practically indoctrinated into it. Can't really blame you for that, I'm just happy you saw the light, and that no one was hurt. I'd date someone who had genuinely changed and become a different person.
You changed and saw the error of your ways. I'm not going to screw you over because you found out what you were doing was wrong and that you are redeeming yourself. If anything that makes me like you more. That shows that you have a good moral compass as you realize what you were doing is wrong and left. A lot of people wouldn't have as their family would be that group
Even though i put yes I would be VERY hesitant. We all have done stupid shit in our life I won't go into detail on my shit lol. But thats life so long as you were relatively young when you were doing the foolishness I see no prob. You don't have like racist ideals still hanging around in your head do you?
I think that is absurd. First, All lives Matter. Despite what race you are, It does not single anyone out and it does not put your value at a different level with anyone else. This instead levels the playing field. No favorites. Just the way it should be.
Probably either KKK member or a Black lives matter member , one of those nonsense brain washed retards. Fucking racists, cheaters and ISIS are ruining the world, legalize the purge so we can murder them, world would be a better place
Only if they will not go back to their racist ways
Maybe, but I would question the honesty, but you added that you defaced property by vandalizing by writing graffiti Seriously that's against the law and regardless of your group affiliation gang you still have a conscience and should have known its wrong to do
People can change, their outlook and views can change but I'd never date a former racist , because I'd never know how deeprooted his hatred had been or still was I'd never really know for sure if deep down his views had sincerely changed.
I judge people by past behaviour , because even if they've changed, their past behaviour will always be their potential. So there's a possibility they'll go back to their old ways again.
