KKK History

The Ku Klux Klan was founded in 1866 it is a white supremacist group. The KKK had no problem showing violence to get their message across which was " white supremacy" (This includes bombing African American schools, murdering African Americans, raping African woman, and plenty of arson. The KKK was formed to oppose to civil rights of African Americans. Not only does the Klan hate AA's they also were against Catholics, and Jews. Ex- Confederate soldiers created the Klan. In 1871, the KKK came into justice with their actions. Federal government passed the civil rights act which made night-riding a crime. The Klan in 1866 was the very first Ku Klux Klan, the second was in 1915 recreated by William J. Simmons, and the third Klan was after World War II by Dr. Samuel Green of Georgia. Now The KKK has been decreased ever since the civil rights act has been taking place in the south.

" Who cared that he was black? He was the first man other than my grandfather who ever showed me kindness in my life, and he did it at the risk of his own because they would've strung him faster than you can blink if they'd find out. Not just the Ku Klux Klan but regular white folks in town would've killed him. ( McBride 111)
