"By the Klan's moral framework, all whites are categorically superior to all Blacks in every way; hence its fanatical commitment to maintaining a social, political, and economic power structure that reflects that belief.

The Klan's savage tactical handiwork is well known; their most depraved acts fall under the heading of "lynching." Mobs of Caucasian males hunt down innocent Black men, women, and children and commit sadistic acts of ritual torture, including sexual mutilations, whippings, burnings alive, decapitations, flesh and eye gougings, amputations, bone crushings, point-blank shootings, stabbings, tree, bridge, or lamppost hangings, and horse or vehicle rope-draggings -- all culminating in their scavenging for souvenirs amid the desecrated, dismembered or scorched remains of the Black victims.

It is usually stated as fact that the Klan was historically "against Blacks, Jews, and Catholics," when in fact the KKK had many Jewish members, sympathizers, and supporters.

As whites, Jews were an accepted and important part of Southern society and thus were NEVER targets of Nathan Bedford Forrest's original Ku Klux Klan. From early on, Jews enjoyed a specific and unchallenged niche in the slave-based economy. In fact, Jews, like all true-blue Southern whites, understood and believed that without an organized, deliberate campaign of terroristic violence, Blacks would quickly advance from downtrodden plantation laborer to independent commercial competitor, marketing their own labor and produce free from the management or agency of whites. The post-slavery rise of at least sixty all-Black towns attested to the Black desire for independence and self-development. Centuries of slavery had not crushed this yearning."
