What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – “…some thirty states institutionalized a significant part of the Klan agend.”

August 9th, 2019

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


”The second Klan waned as rapidly as it arose and by 1926 had but a fraction of its peak strength (though it continues today). But many social movements, good and bad, are short-lived. Moreover, although internal rivalries and moral scandals repelled many Klan members, their movement won significant victories. Federal immigration-restriction and anti-miscegenation laws passed by some thirty states institutionalized a significant part of the Klan agenda. Immigration restriction installed the same hierarchy of desirable and undesirable populations that the Klan promoted.”

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