Best Answer

the first klan was founded by veterans of the confederate army in 1865. Because of the freedom given to black slaves for fighting in the war. They struck out against all black people and republicans using violent methods to scare people off and get their point across. But in Malcolm X words I believe that the Ku Klux Klan were cowards. Who hid behind their sheets and masks away from the eye of justice. And who would never fight alone only in gangs fearing the skills and inteligence other races brought.
