There is a video on Facebook by the Young Turks that claims 3000 black people were killed by the KKK, but there is a text "UPDATE" under the video that corrects it to 300. Other sources I saw online agree with this updated number.

BUT, there is another video I had seen before where a black commentator on Fox tells a white commentator that up to 4000 blacks were killed in an aerial attack.

I'd like to know the the historically accepted number.

    I've reverted your question back to the initial revision and clarified what is intended by "truth". Hopefully you will find this acceptable so we can reopen. – Sklivvz May 3 '15 at 12:46
