I'm not sure when they started wearing the hoods and robes (and don't really care, quite frankly), but they actually didn't start burning crosses until about a decade or so before that vile film was made.

The Jefferson Davis chair has been recovered, and two people arrested.

Yeah, doing a bit of amateur researching right now (quarantine life) and the timeline is not entirely clear.

But what can't be denied is the effect the film produced and the reinvigoration of the KKK as a consequence.

Trying to go back to the thread subject, the power of these kinds of symbols when given a "legitimizing" platform is undeniable.

From that CNN article Jim shared, say what?? I hope the DA was adding a huge amount of sarcasm when he said that LOL

Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson told CNN last month that he was confident an arrest would be made.
"The chair has been returned to Selma. One more suspect is being sought," Jackson said Saturday. "The suspects will have a theft charge and an extortion charge put on them in Selma. The best story written since Hamlet is coming to a close."

Anybody is welcome to comment on Canada, hopefully having informed opinions. I saw CBS' 60 Minutes intelligently criticized about a story on the current Florida governor and I think that's a very good thing to have. Total isolation and patriotic or religious belief bubbles are pretty fragile things liable to traveling further from truth.

There has been an education bubble in the south-eastern U.S. that, alongside Darwin being minimized or left out, also omitted much of the slavery aspect to the very reason for the south seceding which sparked the civil war beside the Harper's Ferry raid by John Brown abolitionists. The symbols of the Confederacy clearly represent people against the U.S.A. and against civil rights or at least desegregation and federal powers.
