Yes, that's Sixx King dressed in a KKK costume. You may have seen him around town before. Maybe even on today's edition of the Drudge Report.

Yes, that’s Nicholas “Sixx” King, a black man, dressed in a KKK costume. You may have seen him around town before. Maybe even Thursday on the Drudge Report. A 2010 Daily News Sexy Single, he's infamous for photo bombing the 2003 Grammy Awards.

A self-styled relationship expert, he has written a relationship book that he published himself and also blogged a bit on the topic for Essence magazine.

His latest project is a documentary about gun violence called “Mothers of No Tomorrow.”

King's point is that comparatively speaking, African Americans have murdered more blacks than the Ku Klux Klan did.

I have a column in the works about King scheduled to run in the Daily News next week in which I’ll find out what’s next for this local provocateur.

Meanwhile, his get-up was intended to shine a spotlight on black on black violence. What do you think of the point he’s making? Is it a valid one? Or do you think his shock tactics obfuscated his point?

About this blog
What’s up, everyone? Welcome. Let's discuss whatever's on our minds - pop culture, relationships, politics, even the latest fashion trend. If you read my Daily News column, you know I like to mix it up: One day, it's the state of hip hop and the next, the latest political race. Also, it's always fun to try to figure out the opposite sex and check the latest trends. It’s all about learning from each other, exchanging ideas and hopefully making some changes for the better. Nothing is off limits - just keep it clean and civil.
