Anon. Ideals of the Ku Klux Klan. NP: no date (circa early-1920s). Staple-bound brochure, 10 by 22.8 cm, 8 pp. Near fine. The platform of the second generation Klan (1921-1940s): “We have been passing through the formative period of the organization, and now we have come to the period of constructive planning and activity. We must know what we are, and the things for which we stand in order that our activity may rightly contribute to the upbuilding of character and of a high-grade citizenship. The time has now come when the world will know the Ku Klux Klan in its true character. Before we can correctly interpret this Order and the things for which it stands we ourselves must know ourselves and the principles and ideals of this Order.” It goes on to list the attributes of the KKK: “This is a white man’s organization … This is a gentile organization … It is an American organization … It is a Protestant organization,” and it details their racial ideals: “we stand for white supremacy,” “we would not rob the colored population of their rights, but we demand that they respect the rights of the White Race in whose country they are permitted to reside,” “purity of the white blood must be maintained,” etc., etc. (eph)
