Work on USA in the 1920s

Imagine you are a journalist in USA in the 1920s. You have the opportunity of interviewing one of the leaders of the KKK. Write the interview you imagine you could make. (Bauti – Tomás – Manolo)

Journalist: Today we are here with the KKK leader, James A. Colescott, the Imperial Wizard. Shall we start with the questions?
KKK Leader: Sure, Mr.  

Journalist: Recently the Klan resurged in an attempt to eliminate the black people, what caused this resurging?

KKK Leader: Well, the movie “The birth of a Nation”

recently came out, it remembered us why we are here and why all Niggers should be dead.

Journalist: Ok, interesting. Don’t you think that Nigger is a strong word.

KKK Leader: It should be, it intimidates blacks and offends them, which is the right thing.

Journalist (shocked): Oh. How many participants does the Klan currently have? How do you recruit them?

KKK Leader: Well, first they apply for a membership«. Then we go to their homes to inspect them, ‘till we make sure they are 100% white. If they have another descendance we don’t accept them. Currently we have more than 50,000 people.

Journalist: I understand. What is your motivation for killing black people?

KKK leader: There are many reasons. We have fun killing them, we enjoy it. But the main one is that we want white people, real people to rule this world. Black people are just worthless. We kill them for hostility.

Journalist: Ok, one more question, what does Ku Klux Klan mean?

KKK Leader: Well, the Ku Klux part comes from the greek word Kuklos (Circle), and we added Klan. The name as one means White Racial Brotherhood. Also there are myths that the name is that because Ku Klux sounds like a rifle being charged.

Journalist: Okay, thank you very much that’s all.
