The Ku Klux Klan's main goal was to eliminate all the African Americans from congress. They were going to succeed even if it meant murder.
They thought that this was the way thing were suppose to work. They belied that blacks should not run the government and they were going to do anything to stop it.
The Klan had many supporter. These supporter were mainly former confederates and cotton farmers that lost there slaves under the 13th amendment. It made them very mad that they are now being controlled by the people they previously controlled.
Many people were scared to turn them in. They would threaten them and the lives of their family. Many men that were convicted were sentenced to death or many years in prison.
The KKK’s uniform was designed for scare tactics. It disguised the member wearing it. The uniform the member is wearing is determined by rank.
The KKK is still around in today's society. They don’t use violence against African Americans but they still hold meetings and practice the burning of the cross.
