In 1921, the Klan started a modern business system of recruiting clan members. Those clan members would then have to pay for their initiation fee, the Klan’s costumes, and other necessities in the beginning of their clan membership.
Over 6million clan members throughout the decade of the 1920’s.
The more clan members, meant more money for the Klan, which meant more ways to get their opinions and beliefs out into the world.
The Klan would attack at night, in their ghostlike costumes. These costumes were intimidating and frightened many people.
The Klan members wore masks, so that people would not be able to tell who they were.
Some people knew who these criminals were under their masks. The same criminals who were being extremely violent and committing very serious crimes. Accept, many people would not tell the police or any other organizations looking for these criminals, who were under the masks, for fear of their own safety.
