Overview: The Ku Klux Klan’s persecution of Hispanics all over the early 1920s used to be simply as brutal as their terrorizing of the black community-a truth carefully documented in ancient texts. The KKK seen Mexicans as subhuman foreigners supporting a Catholic conspiracy to subvert U.S. establishments and set up the pope as chief of the country, and fixed a marketing campaign of intimidation and violence in opposition to them.
Drawing on a lot of Spanish-language newspapers and Klan publications of the day, the creator describes the KKK’s intensive anti-Hispanic job within the southwest.
