Did you know that in America the initials “KKK “are the very embodiment of everything evil. The KKK or Klu Klux Klan was / is a secret society born out of the chaos of the American Civil War. The organizations ideology advocated white supremacy, anti-Semitism, racism, anti-Catholism, homophobia, sexism and nativism. They spread their ugly ideology by using intimidation and even murder.

Now for the rest of the story.

The Philippines has their own KKK, except here those initials are the embodiment of everything GOOD. The Katipunan or KKK was a nationalistic partisan secret society founded to oust the Spanish colonial government. Katipunan ideology was a combination of nationalism and egalitarianism. It was nationalist by seeking Filipino freedom from Spanish oppression and egalitarian, in that it believed in the equality of all mankind regardless of class, race or gender. Some of the leaders in the revolution were Filipina. The Philippine people were fighting for equality between the sexes some 30 years before we granted it in America. The Philippines is second in the world for gender equality.
