This chapter focuses on the Ku Klux Klan's uneven presence across North Carolina counties, and explains how the significant variation in Klan presence related to the patterning of racial competition in different regions of the state. Focusing on demographic, economic, and political dimensions of competition, the analysis demonstrates how the racial composition of neighborhoods, public spaces, and the labor market, as well as voter registration patterns and NAACP organizing efforts, shaped the contours of KKK mobilization. The chapter also emphasizes the spatial character of competition, showing how certain dimensions operated in a highly-localized manner while others had diffuse effects on Klan presence.

Keywords:   Ku Klux Klan, demographic competition, economic competition, political competition, demography, labor market, voter registration, NAACP
