Declare the KKK a terrorist organization

0 have signed. Let’s get to 150,000!


The original petition was closed at 100,932 signatures with a 200,000 goal. There are 331,002,651 people on the United States. That means there are plenty of adults, of clear mind and conscience, who can sign and help dismantle the KKK. So lets try this again!

For generations, the Ku Klux Klan has been persecuting black people. Though-out American history, they have murdered innocents, lynched thousands, and terrorized many more. And surprisingly, this group still exists. They promote a spirit of aggression and hatred towards African Americans and people of color. They encourage violent and hateful behavior, which is especially dangerous to young, impressionable minds.

The KKK is a terrorist organization protected by the first amendment. It is a travesty to allow such an organization to function under the law in a generation that abhors racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. What kind of message is the government spreading by allowing the KKK to function? That it's okay to be racist? Because it isn't. Think about the pain African Americans endure every single day for the color of their skin. Think about how hard it must be for them to know that they can be murdered by a cop no matter their innocence, but a group that is inherently violent and racist is allowed to exist.

It is dishonoring our black citizens by allowing a group that has tortured them from the very start to still exist. Abolish this hateful group that is carrying on a history of abuse, racism, and murder. Abolish the KKK.
