In his book, The History of the American People, Volume IX, future President Woodrow Wilson had interesting things to say about African Americans and the KKK, eventually being quoted in the infamous movie, The Birth of a Nation.
||The white men of the South were aroused by the mere instinct of self-preservation to rid themselves, by fair means or foul, of the intolerable burden of governments sustained by the votes of ignorant negroes and conducted in the interest of adventurers.||”|
