BC: Racism is still alive today but not so m much shown in the public as the KKK had been or infamous trials such as Sacco and Vanzetti. This proves racism has calmed down and became less of a problem but that doesn't change the fact that is still a problem. Hopefully people can think differently of this hatred and we can all learn to live with each other peacefully.

FC: The Red Scare | by. Amy Ortega

1: In 1915 the second Ku Klux Klan was created by pastor William J. Simmons. This Klan focused more on the immigrants and sometimes religion. This Klan is also the one with the largest number of people. Simmons was known for introducing the burning of the cross which is a usual ritual of the Klan.

2: Soon after WWI immigration in the United Sates increased dramatically. In 1919 alone about 110,000 immigrants settled in America. The number increased more then 3x amount that same year.

3: As with the Red Scared most Americans reacted in a defensive way and felt a threat from the immigrants and feared the American vision would be destroyed. That's when the Emergency Quota Act of 1921 was passed by congress.

4: The newly formed quota act controlled the number of immigrants that entered the US. The act limited the amount of immigrants allowed into the country. This new act stated the number of immigrants that were allowed in the United States.

6: Nicola Sacco a shoe factory worker and Bartolomeo Vanzetti a fish peddler were accused of the murders of two men during a robbery in 1921. Both Sacco and Vanzetti were Italian immigrants and were known as anarchist. The infamous trial caused up a stir of protests and boycotts. The judge and jury were easily noticed as prejudice and racist against immigrants and especially against the two men's political views. After 7 years of the trial going on the jury determined that Sacco and Vanzetti were guilty on all counts and were executed on August 23, 1927.
