The Ku Klux Klan, commonly called the KKK or the Klan, is an American white supremacist hate group, whose primary target are African Americans.
In 1921, the KKK raided Tulsa. This caused the death of 36 African-Americans.
In 1985, Hector Godfrey of the New Frontiersman wrote an article suggesting that costumed adventurers are a continuation of the tradition started by the Ku Klux Klan, who while admitting did some bad things were essentially trying to preserve American culture and prevent it from being “mongrelized.”
In 2019, members of the KKK vandalized the Statue of Liberty.
