It's good for society that they don't feel they have free reign to cause mayhem

Which is what the KKK was all about back in the day. What? You thought they just rode for fun? No, it was to remind blacks who was in control. Blacks today have forgotten that lesson, and it's time to teach it again.

The KKK weren't just about culling nigger transgressions. They would address wife beaters, drunkards, child rapist, and thieves...as most communities had no active law enforcement.

Six Confederate veterans from Pulaski, Tennessee created the original Ku Klux Klan on December 24, 1865, during the Occupation of the South after the Yankee Invasion.

The name was formed by combining the Greek kyklos (κύκλος, circle) with clan. The group was originally known as the "Kuklux Clan"

The word kike was born on Ellis Island when there were Jewish migrants who were also illiterate (or could not use Latin alphabet letters).

When asked to sign the entry-forms with the customary "X", the Jewish immigrants would refuse, because they associated an X with the cross of Christianity.

Instead, they drew a circle as the signature on the entry-forms. The Yiddish word for "circle" is kikel (pronounced KY-kul), and for "little circle", kikeleh (pronounced KY-kul-uh).

Before long the immigration inspectors were calling anyone who signed with an "O" in place of an "X" a kikel or kikeleh or kikee or, finally and succinctly, kike.
