What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 41 in a series – “Purity meant homogeneity as well.”

September 23rd, 2019

“Purity meant homogeneity as well. Diversity seemed to Klanspeople a form of pollution, uncleanliness. Antagonism to diversity saturates Klan discourse, conveying a structure of feeling hostile to the very essence of big-city life and cosmopolitanism.”

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

What I'm Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK - 1 in a series
