What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 2 in a series – The second Klan…

August 5th, 2019

This new series is an ongoing collection of quotes from the books I am currently reading. — Douglas


“This “second Klan,” as it has been called, took pride in its namesake and its commitment to white supremacy. But it differed significantly from its parent. It was stronger in the North than in the South. It spread above the Mason-Dixon Line by adding Catholics, Jews, immigrants, and bootleggers to its list of enemies and pariahs, in part because African Americans were less numerous in the North.”

The Second Coming of the KKK: The Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s and the American Political Tradition by Linda Gordon
