The KKK need to become stronger than our predecessors, gain political recognizance, and grow exponentially in numbers.
The KKK grew and by the 1920's over 4 million members had joined this movement.
After the Reconstruction Era, they installed a fear in the African Americans, immigrants, and Roman Catholics by destroying their societies, creating prejudices against them, and using violence to demean them.
Soon every state had a KKK member as an elected official and they controlled decisions politically such as the Decade Plan. Leroy Percy, unhappy with these changes, made a speech keeping KKK out of Mississippi
This is how it must be!

As time passed so did the uprising of the KKK. New ideologies took over and a toleration of others became essential in society. The KKK slowly dissipated and now only a few members of the cult remain.
The KKK was significant because it reminds us of the importance to not discriminate against other races and make sure that equality among people is kept. They also serve as a reminder to us to not criticize or degrade those who have other lifestyles or contain different physical qualities.
