The existence of modern Klan groups has been in a state of consistent decline, due to a variety of factors: from the American public's negative distaste of the group's image, platform, and history, infiltration and prosecution by law enforcement, civil lawsuit forfeitures, and the radical right-wing's perception of the Klan as outdated and unfashionable. The Southern Poverty Law Center reported that between 2016 and 2019, the number of Klan groups in America dropped from 130 to just 51. [120] A 2016 report by the Anti-Defamation League claims an estimate of just over 30 active Klan groups existing in the United States. [121] Estimates of total collective membership range from about 3,000 [121] to 8,000. [122] In addition to its active membership, the Klan has an "unknown number of associates and supporters". [121] History Origin of the name The modern KKK is not one organization; rather, it is composed of small independent chapters across the United States. [296] According to a 1999 ADL report, the KKK's estimated size then was "No more than a few thousand, organized into slightly more than 100 units". [297] In 2017, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which monitors extremist groups, estimated that there were "at least 29 separate, rival Klan groups currently active in the United States, and they compete with one another for members, dues, news media attention and the title of being the true heir to the Ku Klux Klan". [298] The formation of independent chapters has made KKK groups more difficult to infiltrate, and researchers find it hard to estimate their numbers. Analysts believe that about two-thirds of KKK members are concentrated in the Southern United States, with another third situated primarily in the lower Midwest.

A 2016 analysis by the SPLC found that hate groups in general were on the rise in the United States. [302] The ADL published a report in 2016 that concluded: "Despite a persistent ability to attract media attention, organized Ku Klux Klan groups are actually continuing a long-term trend of decline. They remain a collection of mostly small, disjointed groups that continually change in name and leadership."

The Primary symbol used by the clan for the past century has been the Mystic Insignia of a Klansman, commonly known as the Blood Drop Cross, a white cross on a red disk with what appears to be a blood drop in the middle. It was first used in the early 1900s, with the symbol in the center originally appearing as a red and white Ying Yang which in the subsequent years, lost the white part and was reinterpreted as a "blood drop".

In 1915, the film The Birth of a Nation was released, mythologizing and glorifying the first Klan and its endeavors. The second Ku Klux Klan was founded in 1915 by William Joseph Simmons at Stone Mountain, near Atlanta, with fifteen "charter members". [173] Its growth was based on a new anti-immigrant, anti-Catholic, Prohibitionist and anti-Semitic agenda, which reflected contemporary social tensions, particularly recent immigration. The new organization and chapters adopted regalia featured in The Birth of a Nation; membership was kept secret by wearing masks in public. Emily Parker (Fall 2009). "'Night-Shirt Knights' in the City: The Ku Klux Klan in 1920s Worcester, Massachusetts", New England Journal of History, Vol. 66 Issue 1, pp. 62–78.Klan costumes, also called " regalia", disappeared from use by the early 1870s, [170] after Grand Wizard Forrest called for their destruction as part of disbanding the Klan. The Klan was broken as an organization by 1872. [171] In 1915, William Joseph Simmons held a meeting to revive the Klan in Georgia; he attracted two aging former members, and all other members were new.

The family said it discovered the messages in its mailbox on two different occasions, with an image of a swastika posted to them as well as letters saying "KKK Hate Muslims, We will kill you, Jesus loves you" the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) reported. The Klan had numerous members in every part of the United States, but was particularly strong in the South and Midwest. At its peak, claimed Klan membership exceeded four million and comprised 20% of the adult white male population in many broad geographic regions, and 40% in some areas. [206] The Klan also moved north into Canada, especially Saskatchewan, where it opposed Catholics. [207] We'll get into the details below but in brief: tragic events like mass shootings, natural disasters and pandemics should never be used as inspiration for Halloween costumes. Making light of tragedies can remind others of trauma they've endured and that's no laughing matter. Neither is cultural appropriation — nationalities and subcultures you don't belong to aren't a costume; they're real ways of life that deserve respect.
