When you think of the Ku Klux Klan, you probably think of a group of people wearing white pointed hats and pushing their views on white supremacy. We’ve never known a lot about the infamous group, other than their views on people of colour.
Like most things, even when we agree that the way they operate is in no way aligned with our own views, we can’t help but cater to our curious side and learn more about them and why they do the things they do. A great example of that is our ongoing fascination with the Westboro Baptist Church and their extreme views on the bible.
So, for those who are interested in knowing more about the people who have become one of the most feared and secretive pockets of society in the world, we’ve found a report and uncensored images on Slate.com that gives us a never before seen insight into the Ku Klux Klan.
