Kayden Nelmar 7, November, 2015 Mrs. Gardner-Per. 04 Language Arts KKK In the 1920’s The KKK is a white supremacy group established in 1866 to degrade black people 's emotional state and physical being.
KKK was a white supremacist organization. That believe that all Non Caucasian people do not belong in the United States . It was not long before the KKK did acts like Bombing , Rape and Lynching. To protest The civil rights of African Americans.
The Klu Klux Klan is a group of people who believed that people who viewed against their beliefs should be punished. Examples are African Americans,Jews, immigrants,gays and lesbians, and catholics. They started to spread aro8nd the USA from their original southern location. Spreading into all parts of America, the Klan attempted to take control of small towns and acquire members by creating fear of those who are "different" and professing to embrace truly "American" values. Witness is about the story of the Klan 's attempt to recruit members in a small town in Vermont in 1924.
As stated in the introduction, the most well-known hate crimes have been against people of the African-American community. The most successful terrorist group that have committed hate crimes against African- Americans in the United States has been the Ku Klux Klan. This group was created in 1865 in Pulaski, Tennessee and is still have many factions throughout the United States. The Southern Poverty Law Center estimated that the Ku Klux Klan has between 5,000 and 8,000 members nationwide.1 Their power has been on its ability to inspire racist ideology.
In 1934 ,November 14 an ordinary child was conceived with a soon to be world changing child. This child would grow up under harsh conditions that created a monster out of him. Experiencing life as abandoned and alone the young boy found crime to be his only way of expressing himself. Beginning a life filled with petty crimes the boy spent time incarcerated. The petty crimes soon proved to not be enough as the boy and his group conducted acts of pure hatred.
This Klan was known for being mischievous and starting trouble and what played a major role was what they wore. By 1879 the enrollment of the Klan was around "eighty-five thousand individuals." (Southern Poverty Law Center). Despite the fact that the development of the tribe was consistent it needed leadership and discipline, which caused many of the groups to become extremely violent. A significant number of the guests that went to the town of Pulaski were motivated by the KKK and when they went back home they decided to set up their own dens and branches of the KKK.
The rebirth of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920’s In the 1920’s the Ku Klux Klan reemerged since they had been inactive since the 1870’s. In the 1920’s America experienced some very impactful events that will for ever shape our history. The great wall street crash of 1929 which led the country into the Great Depression.
The Ku Klux Klan was founded in 1866 by former Confederate veterans in Pulaski, Tennessee. Ku Klan is derivative of the Greek word “kyklos,” meaning circle. The creation of the Ku Klux Klan coincided with the second phase of post-Civil War Reconstruction, which was organized mostly by members of the Republican Party in Congress. Klan members wore white sheets or robes and masks to cover their identities. They used to march and ride horses at night threatening former slaves and make them believe that former Confederates are coming to reclaim their land.
Separate But Not Equal - How Brown v. Board of Education Changed America Brown v. Board of Education was a court case to desegregate schools. During this time over one-third of states, mostly in the south, segregated their schools by law. Most people don’t know that the lawsuit actually started off as five, in Kansas, South Carolina, Virginia, Delaware, and the District of Columbia. Unfortunately all the lower court cases resulted in defeat (Greenspan 1). The bigger issue was still at hand though, it wasn’t only the schools being segregated, it was everywhere.
Within the United States hate crimes continue to occur against African Americans, members of the Jewish community, and Muslims. This by itself shows the lingering racism shown toward minority groups, and the continuing practice of anti-Semitism by groups such as the KKK and the Aryan Nation, and the unnecessary harassment of Muslims after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The life span of these hate groups and the commonness of the hate crimes in America illustrates the importance of the development of tolerance in today’s society so that hate is not allowed to triumph society. Hate crimes throughout the U.S. have been becoming more frequent while normal crimes start to dwindle. My objective in writing this paper is to tell you about
