No this is not a racist thread. My sister has to do a report on them because she's studying the Civil War era. I tried to find stuff on their history on the internet, and all I could come up with is pro-KKK stuff. I'm definately anti-KKK and against any racist groups. I definately don't want her looking at those sites. She's only 11 and don't need to be subjected to narrow minded stuff like that. So how would I go about finding info for her report? Encyclopedias and stuff really don't help much. Too bad they don't have that show about the KKK history from the History Channel or whatever coming on soon so she could get info from that. Not an easy subject to research, especially for a 11 year old in 5th grade.
