In North America, two groups are well known and prominent to almost everyone. We call these groups the Ku Klux Klan, or the KKK, and the Mexican Cartel. In the past, these two groups have been issued a lot of publicity by the media. In recent years, the KKK and the Mexican Cartel have not had a lot of publicity. Our goal is to inform the general public about the reasoning behind the actions of each group, their history and geographical context, and most importantly, if each group is still active.
Each part of our paper will be organized into five different sections, which does not include our conclusion. Our first section will delve into the history of each group and explain why each was formed. We will then thoroughly introduce and discuss the mission of each group and how they wish to accomplish this goal. Next, we will discourse about how many members each group has as well as where it is most prominent, and why these locations allow each group to thrive under the population and geographical context section. We will then examine any current activities each group has engaged in and if the group is gaining or losing power. We will then conclude this paper with any additional information regarding the two groups along with suggestions on how to eliminate each group. All information will be backed up with factual information from reputable sources. .
Organization's Mission .
The Ku Klux Klan, which once started as a social club, was formed in 1866 by six college students in Pulaski, Tennessee. During these early stages, they went out at night wearing ghostly disguises in order to intimidate the former slaves near their area. This intimidation soon caused the Klan to grow in numbers especially during the Reconstruction Era in America, a time when African Americans were beginning to gain more freedom. In response to the movement, the Ku Klux Klan planned to put a stop to this progressive movement among the African American community.
