Ku Klux Klan:
The Impact on Society
KKK sets 20- year old girl on Fire for wearing an Obama Shirt (2012)
On Oct. 22, 2012, 20-year old Sharmeka Moffitt (shown in the picture) was drenched with lighter fluid and set on fire by men who were identified as wearing white hooded capes, because she was wearing an Obama t-shirt. They also smeared the N- word across the hood of her car as well as other racial comments.
A common insignia of the Klan, often worn in the center or over the right bosom of the traditional white robe.
Robes of the 19th-century KKK were of various colors. In the 20th century, the second KKK adopted white as the standard color. Late 20th-century manifestations of the KKK in small groups has meant a wider variation in robes. Some groups use colored robes for higher ranks.
Some klans use all-white robes regardless of rank. For those that use robes of different colors most use:
(or sometimes blue) – Imperial Wizard
(or sometimes red) – Grand Dragon
– Great Titan
- Exhalted Cyclops
– Knighthawk (security)
The Knighthawk's black robe is usually shorter so as to allow easier movement.
