Four dudes does not an orchestra make, sir.
"Professional media hoaxer" Alan Abel created this hoax in 1991 during former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke's run for governor of Louisiana.

Supposedly part of a Klan attempt to change its image, it was going to allow players from all racial and ethnic backgrounds (although all still wearing white hoods), and pay its players extremely well.

Even a decade later, the scholarly book, Out of Whiteness: Color, Politics, and Culture, from the University of Chicago Press, still thought it was real.
