This documentary of social commentary compares the racist beliefs and actions of the KKK and American Nazi Party in the south of the U.S., and the actions of the organized strikers of a chicken-processing plant in Laurel, Mississippi. The strikers go about their protest with the goal of eventual negotiation leading to a resolution of their problems. The United Racist Front (Ku Klux Klan segment) is shown shooting down protestors in Greensboro, NC and then going free when tried by a jury of their peers, even when a videotape is shown of them doing the shooting. Scenes of burning crosses and Nazis on military training exercises complete the ugly picture.
