INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM By John FreelThis was a very difficult project for me to carry out coming from an area were racial discrimination is almost non existent were only sometimes does religious bigotry raise its ugly head but not nearly in the proportions of this projectKu Klux Klan is a secret terrorist organisation that originated in the southern states during the period of Reconstruction following the American Civil War and was reactivated on a wider geographic basis in the 20th century The original Klan was organised in Pulaski Tennessee on December 24 1865 by six former Confederate army officers who gave their society a name taken from the Greek word kuklos which means circle Although the Ku Klux Klan began as a prankish social organisation its activities soon were directed against the Republican Reconstruction governments and their leaders both black and white which came into power in the southern states in 1867The Klan regarded the government at the time as being hostile and oppressive They also generally believed that the black people were inferior and therefore they mistrusted the rise to civil equality and sometimes to the position of political power so the Klan became an illegal organisation who were committed to the destruction of the new government from the Carolinas to ArkansasDressed in robes or white sheets and wearing a mask which came to a point the Klan terrorised officials to try and scare them from office and any black person to intimidate them into not voting or holding any type of civil position or using any of their newly acquired political rights It would be a usual sight to see a Klansman burning a wooden cross on hills or near to the home of someone that they were trying to intimidate or were just trying to frighten When this type of intimidation failed their victims might be flogged mutilated or murdered The Klan believed these measures to be justified as necessary in the defence
