This chapter summarizes the state of southern politics in the 1940s and describes the economic, social, and political tensions within the one-party South at this time, suggesting that by the end of World War II, one-party politics was no longer sustainable in the long term. It then describes the two major factions—Loyalists and Regulars—within the Georgia Democratic Party and gives an overview of their respective goals, defining in particular the Loyalist strategy of “progressive colorblindness.” Finally, the chapter outlines the status of the civil rights movement in Georgia at the end of World War II.

Keywords:   Solid South, Loyalist Democrats, Regular Democrats, progressive colorblindness, counter-elites
