"The unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims." This is the definition of terrorism according to Oxford Languages. The Ku Klux Klan (KKK) fits this description as they are known for their brutal means of killing innocent black lives in the aim of making their political beliefs known. According to history.com, "the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) extended into almost every southern state by 1870 and became a vehicle for white southern resistance to the Republican Party’s Reconstruction-era policies aimed at establishing political and economic equality for blacks."

This petition is aimed to get the KKK named as a terrorist group to protect the lives of innocent black men, women, and children. African Americans have suffered for over a hundred years in the hands of these men and women. By getting the KKK named as a terrorist group it will help protect the lives of these innocent men and women and control the situation that has been going on for far too long. By naming this klan as a terrorist group, the proper punishment and awareness will be made and will help free the African Americans from the cruel, careless acts committed by the members of this klan.
