As a result of their ignorance, brutality, and lawlessness, the KKK succeeded in raising the awareness of the disparities of segregation and denial of civil rights to a wider American public. Their actions to "protect" the rights of a very small minority (their own, regardless of their rhetoric they do not represent the ideals of the majority of white Americans) at the expense of everyone else's rights is the antithesis of the foundation of the US. If you throw out the Bill of Rights, what do you have? Not the United States of America.
That's the America that allows them the right to their opinions, meetings, costumes, publications, and demonstrations. They have the rights to all of these freedoms, but not at the expense of others' freedoms.
They are not only a hate crime orgination but a group who shows a lack of respect against individual freedoms and civil liberties!
The KKK appeared in the immediate aftermath of the American Civil War and terrorizing people began soon thereafter.
The KKK has killed white people. During the Civil Rights Movement, white people who supported the movement were killed as well.
The KKK wasn't founded till after the civil war
because before the civil war white people were already above black people, they began after the civil war because black people were starting to get their rights
Yes, the KKK has killed people and intimidated many others in order to deny them their civil rights. Victims have included Black Americans, Republicans, Jews and others.

They were not founded yet.
The KKK killed the African-Americans.
The KKK began about the time of the civil war. Though not as popular as now.
they effected them
They totally affect how we live today. We have people who are still racist and people who still truley dont believe blacks and whites are not the same.
The KKK is dedicated to white supremacy; they believe that people of European descent are superior to all other types of people and deserve more privileges, power, and wealth. This is a form of collective selfishness.
The effect the KKK has had on America as a whole is simple hate crimes discized as clubs aka organizations are the blood bath of human rights and people of color.
No, because the KKK formed after the civil war. Of course after the civil war things were still very uneven between the black and white races.
The KKK killed many people in the U.S. More than this. These people didnt like certin other people and killed those people. I think that this is very mean and stupid. Please see related question below.

Black people were the main target of the KKK.
