Default Does the KKK still exist?

If so, do they still advocate violence against non-aryan races?

I'm watching a show about Martin Luther King/segregration and was just wondering....

Yes.
I would say no to the advocating violence part though.

I guessed you must have missed the thread where a bunch of ATOTers went to a white supremacist forum and started spamming it to hell before getting banned.

An interest fact is that in the 19th century the KKK originally was sort of a "super hero" (atleast in their eyes) group of people who sought to "protect white people against minorities." Like Superman would if something was going wrong. They were basically paranoid of minorities.

Then in the 20th century they morphed into a group of lowly educated southerners hating and attacking minorities.

Now today they still exist and it's more of a group of uneducated social misfits.

But at either rate, they've always been a very troubled group of people and probably one of the oldest terrorist organizations within the United States. Terrible people.

The one where Nik (racist) said we were wrong to do so?

Pretty sure that wasn't the KKK.

There was a guild of PKs in UO called the KKK, but they've long since abandoned their campaign. I forgot what it stood for in UO, but I know "Killing" was in the name somewhere. This was before MMORPGs became babysitters and everything went through a filter to make sure people can kill others without being possibly offended.

Supposedly they have a hotline that you can call and hear a prerecored message. My friend said the message is so ignorant that it is almost funny. However, when we called it recently, the number had been disconnected.

Everyone that's from/around there hates it with a passion.

Yep, I live not too far away from "Klan" country. They're around here but go about their daily business and they look like everyone else.
