- The KKK started because they were against blacks having equal rights although they didn't start off being violent.
- They disguised themselves with masks and used the anonymity to intimidate and harass those who were not white and protestant.
- They said what they were doing was "for the children of the future"
- They did what they did in the name of Jesus Christ (hence the burning crosses)
- Klan intimidation was often targeted at schoolteachers
- They were considered a "resistance" group
It's a great documentary and I highly recommend learning about these hate group if for no other reason than to spot the similarities to hate groups that are around today.
