Just a quick history lesson for all those people who think that Republicans are the racists.
The KKK was heavily connected to the Democratic party. At the very same time the Republicans were looking to abolish slavery.
"PBS" wrote: the Klan quickly became a terrorist organization in service of the Democratic Party and white supremacy. Between 1869 and 1871 its goal was to destroy Congressional Reconstruction by murdering blacks -- and some whites -- who were either active in Republican politics or educating black children.
