LIFE Goes Inside Today's KKK

There are some amazing yet chilling pictures in Life from photographer Anthony Karen. He has documented the modern-day Klan. Perhaps it's somewhat native of me, but I had the perception that the KKK didn't exist as an organisation any more. Yet from the pictures there's a whole new generation, it's quite chilling how many kids and how young the people are.

I've not seen pictures of the KKK for awhile, you forget how awful the image of them are, there are few things that can symbolise prejudice like the hooded figure of the Klan.

You can see the full gallery here.
