    There have been three KKKs. The first was started as a fraternal social club in 1865. It Although there was little organizational structure above the local level, similar groups rose across the South and adopted the same name and methods.[clarification needed][27] Klan groups spread throughout the South as an insurgent movement promoting resistance and white supremacy during the Reconstruction Era. The Second Klan started in 1915 based largely on the popular film, The Birth of a Nation. The earlier Klan had not worn the white costumes or burned crosses; these were aspects introduced in the film. It grow to approximately 4–5 million men. The third and current Klan has between maybe 6000 and 8000 members.

    For starters, you should phrase the question in the present.

    The KKK still exists.

    It is a group of Protestant Christian Americans who argue for (and plan terrorist acts for) racial superiority, discrimination, and the abuse of Jews, Catholics, Muslims, anyone not of their particular faith, blacks, Hispanics, Asians and indeed, anyone who isn't white and too closely inbred to have less than 12 toes.

    Originally started by Nathan Bedford Forrest, the traitor and scumbag survivor of the Civil War, it's been remade and re-adapted a number of times, but basically has the same vile, un-american ideology.

    Ask your teacher to teach you how to do an internet search.  If you are in a North American library:

    Dewey Decimal class 322.420

    Library of Congress Subject headings:

    Ku Klux Klan (19th century)

    Ku Klux Klan (1915-   )

    bunch of white trash that wanted to bully and put down black people to make themselves feel more "aryan"..even though Hitler would probably have never considered them aryans or anything near his idea of the perfect white race

      Considering the calibre of Hitler's entourage, I think the Klansmen would have slipped in unnoticed.
