I recall reading that the KKK was created by the Democratic Party in the 19th century to use intimidation tactics to keep black voters away from the polls; at the time, support for the Republicans among black voters was close to 100%.

Klan power in the South didn’t wane until Blacks became a consistent Democrat Party vote in the late ‘60’s. If blacks start voting over 30% black again, look for a Klan resurgence.
