Answer: A. African-Americans and immigrants should not be allowed to vote.

The Ku Klux Klan, also known as the KKK, is a white supremacist hate and terrorist group whose main targets were African-Americans. The Klan has been in existence since 1865 and although suppressed now, they still operate subtly. The KKK worked and moved to prevent blacks from voting or engaging in political affairs and this led to their reign of terror especially in North and South Carolina and Florida. So many murders (mostly through lynching) of African-Americans were made and this made the Ku Klux Klan one of the most feared terror groups among Blacks in the United States. The Klan movement also lured people into voting for democrats and with this, no republican voted in the 1868 presidential election.
