When criticized by an NAACP member for dining with Ku Klux Klan members, African-American Daryl Davis responds like this:

“I pull out my [Klan] robes and hoods and say, ‘Look. This is what I’ve done to put a dent in racism. I’ve got robes and hoods hanging up in my closet of people who’ve given up that belief through my conversations and sitting down to dinner—they’ve given it up. How many robes and hoods have you collected?’ And then they shut up.”
