The Ku Klux Klan, also abbreviated the KKK, is the name of three past and present US right wing organizations. The KKK is considered a hate group, towards all African Americans, that flourished in the south in the 1860's, but then mostly died out by the 1870's. The second KKK then arrived and was spread nation wide in the 1920's and continued with the customs of the first klan. Although the KKK has not completely died out yet, and probably never will, there are very few members compared to their members in the past.
