A Black Man’s Ode to the Ku Klux Klan

When Kanye Says “Black lives DON’T Matter.

History Doesn’t Repeat Itself, but It Often Rhymes

— Mark Twain

A typical ad from an American 1700s newspaper.

The fact that for such a long time, the cruel and extremely abusive treatment of Black people in America was an acceptable practice, not condemned, but if anything, supported by the US government — led to the creation of white supremacy groups — many of which exist to this day.

The first American white supremacy group was the ‘KKK’ (or Ku Klux Klan). The group’s first klan operated between the years 1865 and 1872 and established the key principles of the group — such as right-wing nationalism, anti-immigration, and terror — whose main targets to this day are Jews, Muslims, African Americans, Latinos, Asians, Native Americans, Catholics, and many more. The second klan operated between the years 1915 and 1944, and the third klan (with a current estimate of around 3,000 members) was created in 1946.

In 2013 the BLM — or ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement was founded in the US, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and stop the violence against Black people.
