What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 67 in a series – “…the Klan murdered Mexican American farmworkers…”

October 29th, 2019

“Far western states saw many Klan assaults, notably against Mexican Americans and Asian Americans. In California’s great agricultural valleys, the Klan murdered Mexican American farmworkers and tried to force the “wetbacks” out.47 In 1927 and 1928 vigilantes forced all the Filipino farmworkers out of Wapato, Topenish, and Wenatchee in Washington state; this kind of violence continued into the 1930s, when they bombed and set fire to several Japanese-owned farms.48”
