The KKK also known as the Ku Klux Klan was a white supremacist organization that started in 1870. Throughout its time factions of secret fraternal organization have used acts of terrorism; they used murder, lynching, arson, rape, and bombing, to oppose the granting of civil rights to African Americans. Deriving its membership from native-born, white protestant U.S. citizens, the KKK has also been anti Semitic and catholic, and has opposed the immigration of all and does not view as "racially pure". The KKK was also called White Brotherhood, Heroes of America, Constitutional Union Guards, and Invisible Empire.
