This Klan has really risen to prominence in all forms of media, I shall honorably join it and align myself with their truthful beliefs
The 1920s proved to be a time of perceived racial superiority, Klansmen terrorized black people and participated in mass demonstrations which reflected their beliefs that whites were racially superior to individuals of color
In the mid 1920s, the Klan reached its height in terms of membership and power. Estimates believed that anywhere from 2-5 million Klansmen were part of the Klan at the time
The KKK was very significant in the 1920's as well as today. In the 1920's it promoted the ideals of white racial superiority and was actually a huge political force at the time. However, now the KKK is significant because we know how racist they truly were. For the most part we have learned from the mistakes they as an organization made and will try our best not to match them. Looking at the atrocities they committed ha made us all more tolerant of other races overt time.
You guys are racist and don't represent American values
