The Ku Klux Klan wants to hold a victory parade and after party to mark Donald Trump winning the US presidency.
The white supremacist group, which backed Trump in the recent election, wants to the parade to take place on December 3 in the town of Pelham, North Carolina.
They announced their plans on their website and wrote: “Trump’s race united my people.”
The local group has around 200 members and is thought to be one of the most active Klan branches in the US. The KKK have taken credit for Trump getting to the White House.
Former Klan leader – or Imperial Wizard – David Duke said “our people” had played a huge part in getting Trump elected. After the election, Duke said it was “one of the most exciting nights of my life”.
The KKK has been active in the US since the 1860s when slavery was abolished. Currently there is reckoned to be around 6,000 members. The organization was well known for cross burnings, hangings and terrorizing black communities. It is a lot tamer these day but it holds with the same tenets or beliefs of the original organization, white supremacy.
