Who Put the Klan Into Ku Klux Klan

Average Rating:
Rate this:
Archaeologist and historian Neil Oliver examines the links between racism today in the Deep South and the Scots who first occupied it. Hundreds of thousands of Scots emigrated to America throughout the eighteenth century after being forced off of their land. The arrival of cotton gave them the opportunity to become slave masters and wealthy plantation owners, but the Civil War left them embittered. Because of that, six Scottish-American former Confederate officers formed a fraternal society that became the oldest and most feared hate group in America: the Ku Klux Klan.

Interesting. It was the Scottish all along...not the British, not the French. Plus rarely a mention about Native Indians. The film starts a conversation but certainly doesn't finish it. Why should it? When I travel the black hoods of Atlanta, Indianapolis, NYC, and LA (2017/2018) I never let them know I'm a white Cdn until the knife is held to my throat. I guess ultimately this film confirms, like so many other docs, that we have inherited a major catastrophe from our forefathers....but are we manning up to a solution? Now there's a Cdn doc I'd like to see.

"Colonization Road" anyone?
