The second klan was founded in 1915 and was inspired by the newfound power of the modern mass media. For example, the film, The Birth of a Nation, and anti-immigrant/Semitic* newspaper accounts surrounding the trial and lynching of accused murderer Leo Frank.
*relating to or denoting a family of languages that includes Hebrew, Arabic, Aramaic, ect.
The third Klan started up in the 1950s in response to the civil rights movement. The F.B.I. soon became involved and the klan broke up and slowly died down. Though the KKK is still here today, it is widely spread out, with very few numbers, and slowly diminishing.
