INTRODUCTION KU KLUX KLAN: The Ku Klux Klan was one of the oldest and most famous hate group in the United States. Their emblem had a drop of blood on a white cross. The blood-drop on the white-cross meant through blood to protect white race. Their primary objectives were h as white supremacy, white nationalism and anti-immigration. The targeted black people in the beginning but later on they dominated Jews, immigrants, gays and Catholics. The first Klan was founded in Pulaski, Tennessee, sometime between December 1865 and August 1866 by six former officers of the Confederate army as a fraternal social club inspired at least in part by the then largely defunct Sons of Malta. The clan was majorly involved in murdering, kidnapping and public lynching. The Klan came to end in 1876 due to suppression from the federal government. In 1915, William Joseph Simmons founded the second Klan atop Stone Mountain, Georgia. While Simmons relied on documents from the original Klan and memories of some surviving elders, the revived Klan was based significantly on the wildly popular film, The Birth of a Nation. In the 1920’s the members or more popularly known as the “Klansmen” reached to 20 million. The second Klan also came to end due to the commencement of the World War 2. The third Klan was given a rebirth by Samuel Green In 1955. Numerous independent local groups opposing the civil rights movement and desegregation, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, used the “Ku Klux Klan” name. As of 2016, researchers estimate that there are just over 30 active Klan groups exist in the United States with about 130 chapters. The Klan finally came to end with the help of the FBI. The KKK used to lynch people, especially black people, as punishment. The major cause of lynching was to prevent the black people from voting and using public goods. Major hypothesis of why The KKK used to lynch black people was: 1. To scare black people to prevent from voting, riding the bus, etc. 2. So far scaring and preventing black people using public

goods, they used to execute the black . This created a sense of fear in the black people, so the small number of lynching was very effective in frightening the black population from using public goods. The lynching started decreasing in America since 1890’s.The Klansmen used to recognize each other by using code like Mr. AYAK & MR.AYKI. In the 1940 Stetson Kennedy held a major post in the KKK, after writing various book against the Klan he realized he did no damage to the Klan.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
