How come in Scotland clans all start with c but Ku klux klan is a clan that doesn’t?

Cross burning is Scottish right? That’s why the St. Andrew’s Cross on confederate flag?

    I guess the democrats who started the Klan were mostly illiterate. ~ Go Figure ~

    Did you know every person (both black and white) who was tortured or killed by the KKK was a republican

    The Confederacy had no connection to Scotland. They needed a flag that was significantly different than the United States flag to carry into battle. A diagonal cross, based upon St. Andrew's cross, was chosen because it is a heraldic symbol and carries no religious connotations (to avoid objections from certain groups). It is not based on the flag of Scotland, but rather, both flags are drawing on the same symbol.

    The history of the KKK is pretty well documented. They did not originally burn crosses, nor were they a well-organized hate group - rather, they were a fairly loose group of local chapters, which is why the early Klan did not succeed in their goals. The cross burning did not start until the early 1900's.

    The kkc sounded too similar to KFC and the ccc didn't have the same ring to it, so after almost being sued by KFC they said they better change their name so legend has it someone at the meeting said kkk and the place went mental.

    Either that or it's a white supremacist thing the royal are German so was the idea of the aryan race which predates Hitler klan is German, they also liked William of oranje the Dutch King so my guess is its German.

      Might want to read my answer. Germans have nothing to do with the Klan. German Jews, maybe.
