Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Ku Klux Klan The KKK was founded in December of 1865 and was mainly just in the Southern part of America. Now it has spread all over the United States and has even gone global. When it began it primarily discriminated against black people, but it also targeted Jews, Immigrants, gays and lesbians, and recently, Catholics. They were originally formed as a Christian group, but now modern times Klan groups are motivated by a variety of theological and political ideologies. The history of the KKK is often told by an American who is against them and by many political figures. The history of the KKK should be continued to be remembered because they helped shape the way we see differences today. They help us understand why people like them should be stopped, but are almost impossible to ever stop because there are always going to be people who see differently than us, whether they are taught that or not. The KKK is very similar to the Neo-Nazis. Such as they are both driven by racism and prejudice. They both have a "White Members Only" policy. They've both killed/attacked innocent people in the past. They've both become nearly powerless organizations today. They both still exist today. They both have flawed ideologies. Members of both have used Christianity/religion to justify their actions, at some point. They're both supporters of ethnic nationalism. Both have used the media to attract members. Both have established websites. They have both recently been mentioned in "Black Lives Matter" protests. August 1921 in Chicagos Albany Park neighborhood.
