Nativism of TWENTIES!

Nativism in the twenties was when the Americans favored the white people other than any other race or ethnicity in the United States. Most Americans didn't like the Germans because they believed that they started WWI. The KKK or Ku Klux Klan was a nativist group who killed anyone that wasn't white and christian. These people really took their beliefs to the extreme.

"Ku Klux Klan"

Founded in 1866, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) extended into almost every southern state by 1870 and became a vehicle for white southern resistance to the Republican Party’s Reconstruction-era policies aimed at establishing political and economic equality for blacks.
