the KKK was a group that strongly hated blacks. they would torture and harass them. although, there are still some KKK to this day, they are not very common and usually dont openly harass blacks anymore.
After the abolishment of slavery in the U.S. the KKK formed. They hated African Americans. The crimes would go unpunished since the other members would be the alibis for the others. Murders, hangings, and lynches were committed towards the blacks. Bombs were also set off in black churches killing Sunday school students.

well i can see there's a gap between what is known today and what actually happened. the initial groups didnt wear the white capes. they were there to self-discipline their own. for ex.. if a man beat his wife.. the "klan" would take care of it. of course this was wrong.. but in a dif way. one thing led to another and as per usual pride, position and provision (the three P's of erosion in an individual and in groups/nations) began to take place. we see the hideous consequences of it all of course. the headquarters in the PNW was near our town and my best friend was the only black to grow up in the area. we were both ridiculed by some (not many).. ya know crosses on the lawn and broken windows. wasnt allowed in some houses etc. he never complained and doesnt hold it against the ignorance. he is now a CEO of a corp and they are well still "them". and we got to see up front and personal what ignorance and bigotry looks like. parenthetically, he is discouraged by the black self-promotion as much as the KKK just the same. wish 1/2 the people in leadership i see today had 1/2 of his persona.
The KKK or the ku klux klan are a hate group .they started after the civil war.than they died out.but come back during the civil rights movement in the 50s and 60s.they are still active.the ku klux klan are racist.they hate everyone.you should learn about them in history class.the ku klux klan also hate gay people sadly.discrimination has no place in todays society.
