Krishnamurti world - - - - 1929 Cohen, Daniel. Cults. Brookfield, Connecticut: Millbrook Press (1994); pg. 135. "In 1929, Krishnamurti appeared before a gathering of thousands of the faithful, and informed them that he was no Messiah. He dissolved the organization that he was supposed to lead, and told the shocked crowd that peple didn't need the kind of leader they wanted him to be... "
Krishnamurti world - - - - 1929 Crim, Keith (ed.). The Perennial Dictionary of World Religions. San Francisco: Harper Collins (1989). Reprint; originally pub. as Abingdon Dictionary of Living Religions, 1981; pg. 417. "Krishnamurti... A fever of excitement built up in the 1920s as the Theosophical Society geared itself for the expected manifestation of the Lord Maitreya through Krishnamurti. But the period of preparation culminated in a series of shattering psychic and physical experiences for Krishnamurti that led him to reject all religions, philosophies, and preconceptions about enlightenment. In 1929 he parted company with the Theosophical Society and began teaching through a kind of therapeutic dialectic demonstrated before large audiences. "
Krishnamurti world - - - - 1929 *LINK* Hexham, Irving. Concise Dictionary of Religion. Carol Stream, USA: InterVarsity Press (1994). (v. online 6 Oct. 1999) "KRISHNAMURTI, Jiddu (1895-1986): Indian MYSTIC who, from the age of 12, was reared and educated by C. W. LEADBEATER, Annie BESANT, and other THEOSOPHISTS at Adyar, outside Madras to prepare him to become the next World Teacher... In 1929 he parted company with the Theosophical Society and began teaching a kind of therapeutic DIALECTIC. "
Krishnamurti world - - - - 1931 Sann, Paul. Fads, Follies and Delusions of the American People. New York: Crown Publishers, Inc. (1967); pg. 196. "However cloudy the language, it appeared to the more realistic observers that Krishnamurti had in effect declined at long last the role for which Annie Besant had nurtured him since 1909. Indeed, he spelled it out himself in 1931 when, his black hair now streaked with a premature gray, he returned to the U.S. Renouncing theosophy and the representations his sponsors had made for him, he said that while he once believed it was his vocation to be the 'Voice of the Great Teacher' he saw his error he matured. "
Krishnamurti world - - - - 1931 Wolpert, Stanley. India. Berkeley, CA: University of California Press (1991); pg. 115. "At the other end of the spectrum, philosophic rationalism has grown out of traditional Vedantic thought blended with late-nineteenth-century Theosophy, and is articulated by such brillian Indian thinkers as was Krishnamurti, 'discovered' by Annie Besant in South India, and reared by her as the 'Messiah,' until he felt obliged to publicly renounce all claims to 'divinity.' Many disciples considered his humility proof-positive, however, of Krishnaji's 'true Savior' status, but his probing rational mind did nothing but discourage such personal worship. "

1981 Crim, Keith (ed.). The Perennial Dictionary of World Religions. San Francisco: Harper Collins (1989). Reprint; originally pub. as Abingdon Dictionary of Living Religions, 1981; pg. 417. "Krishnamurti... "Lecturing in his magnetic manner in America, Europe, and India, he has since [1929] circled the earth for fifty years like a tireless modern-day Buddha. Indeed, his doctrine of a total awareness beyond mental process is similar to that of Theravada and Zen. Although he has written relatively little, his countless talks have been recorded, transcribed, and published. In recent years Krishnaji, as he is called by his followers, has founded schools in America, Canada, England, and India to teach his way. "

"Kru: Population: 85,000; Location: Liberia, the Ivory Coast; Languages: Kru, English "; Pg. 117: "Most of the Kru consider themselves Christians, and a small number are Muslims.

Ksatriya India - - - - 1981 Crim, Keith (ed.). The Perennial Dictionary of World Religions. San Francisco: Harper Collins (1989). Reprint; originally pub. as Abingdon Dictionary of Living Religions, 1981; pg. 418. "Ksatriya. A generic term for members of the second highest division of Hindu society. Though in ritual status inferior to Brahmins, Ksatriyas were traditionally rulers and warriors. Even those Ksatriyas who today engage in agriculture pride themselves on their warrior tradition. Though twice born, Ksatriyas differ from Brahmins and Vaisyas by their habit of consuming meat and alcoholic drinks. "
Ku Klux Klan Alabama - - - - 1981 Landau, Elaine. The White Power Movement: America's Racist Hate Groups. Brookfield, CT: Milbrook Press (1993); pg. 34. "Meanwhile, in other parts of the country the Klan was still at large. In 1981 [March 21] the Klan murdered a nineteen-year-old African-American student from Mobile, Alabama, named Michael Donald... as Donald was heading home from his sister's house... The Klan members who killed Michael Donald were eventually tried and convicted of murder. The Klan itself was dealt a further serious blow through a civil suit filed by the victim's mother, Beulah Mae Donald, with the help of the Southern Poverty Law Center. After four hours of deliberating, an all-white jury awarded Ms. Donald a $7-million settlement against the United Klans of America (UKA) and six of its members. The verdict set a precedent for victims of white-supremacist violence by holding the Klan financially liable for the criminal acts of its members. As partial payment of the award, the victim's mother received the deed to the UKA's national headquarters near Tuscaloosa, Alabama, the organization's only substantial asset. "

In 1987 civil rights activists sued the Klan after its members hurled rocks at demonstrators participating in a march through Forsyth County, Georgia, to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Day.

The Klan had been active in parts of Long Island during the 1920s, but local law-enforcement officials reported that this was the first time in years that the white-supremacist organization returned to the area... the North Carolina Klansmen appeared confident about their Long Island recruitment. Klan leaders declined to disclose the number attending their area initiation ceremony, but stressed 'there are more (members) today than there were yesterday, and there will be more tomorrow than today.' In an observation chilling to those wary of hate-group activities, Klan Imperial Wizard Virgil Griffin noted: 'We didn't leave North Carolina without a reason--people called us.' "
