Ku Klux Klan Structure

The KKK is a white supremacist terror group that promotes white superiority and separation of race. They accept as their own only straight Caucasian followers of Christ and believe that no one besides that group should have civil rights.

There was a second and third revival of the ku klux klan that diversified their targets of hate to include such races and individuals that were gay, biracial, immigrants, or anyone not following their Christian beliefs.

recruits of the KKK oftentimes come from the US and Canada. Stereotypical KKK members are thought to be redneck farmers which is just untrue. Members vary in their demographics and income levels. They keep their organizations going financially by requiring member to pay initiation fees as well as their wardrobe. These fees help fund the organization and what it does and is usually funneled towards the top of the organization. Although the KKK wanted to keep their membership numbers under wraps, eventually these numbers came to fruition. Despite this the KKK likes to use secret hand symbols and tips and tricks in order to recognize their fellow brethren. They use the abbreviation AYAK which stands for are you a klansman. If successful this is followed by AKIA which means a Klansman am I.
