The KKK affected everyone no matter the race. But at a certain point in time African American's were targgeted because of the dramatic diffrence in skin tone. They were threatened and lynched. Also colored people had little to no power at all, including not being able to vote. This took place after WW1 during slavery. During the year of 1919 lynchig s increased by far the most. Crosses were burned towns torn apart and ruined. But did you know that churches worked with the KKK the accpeted large donation's/presant's from the clan and approved that people sould be punished. (It was mainly christans in the group)
