This is the story of how Superman busted the Ku Klux Klan. - Because unless we stop this fiery cross clan now, they'll get you no matter where you go. - The story starts with Stetson Kennedy, a journalist who infiltrated the Klan for the Anti-Defamation League. - He wanted to melt the cultural glue that held the clan together. - Thanks, Rick. - No problem. - That's Rick Bowers. - B-O-W- - He wrote this book. - "Superman Versus The Ku Klux Klan." - But what does Stetson Kennedy have to do with Superman? Remember, the Last Son of Krypton needed a new enemy. - The producers of the radio show, on a very bold gambit, decided Superman would take on real-life hate groups. - The creators of "The Adventures of Superman" used Kennedy's research to produce a 16-part series called "The Clan of the Fiery Cross" - "The Clan of the Fiery Cross," where a great secret society pledged to purify America. - The Superman producers went to the Anti-Defamation League, and said, "Authenticate our script. Provide us more information." - It was a way to get the message out that no one else could get out just by telling horror stories. - I am the Grand Scorpion of the Clan of the Fiery Cross. - The Grand Rat, you mean! - It exposed the clan as hate-mongers, but it also exposed the clan as a money-driven organization. - I'm running a business, Rigs, and so are you! We deal in one of the oldest and most profitable commodities on earth: hate. - It was a break-through in American broadcasting. Not only had they done this great public service, but they elevated themselves to the number one radio show for kids on air. - Well, they're cowardly gangsters who operate at night, hidden behind sheets and hoods. Their minds are diseased with hate. No one is safe from them. - I guess you could say that the white robes stood no chance against the Man of Steel.
