Chapter 6 turns to the broader political landscape. This chapter applies the patterns observed in Winston-Salem to other sites throughout the region that have experienced similar significant shifts in demographics, economics, and local immigration enforcement, and consider their implications for political change. This situates Winston-Salem squarely within a set of context-specific practices that are becoming increasingly common across the Southeast, such as in places like Georgia, where the chapter takes a closer look at similar trajectories of welcoming and closure, alongside increasing support from black activists and political leaders, as well as increased Latino racialization. In looking to the region more broadly, chapter 6 looks to emergent coalitions in Mississippi and Alabama to make the case that such alliances result from similar processes and may foreshadow a political and social sea change in which the New South may be characterized by majority-minority coalitions on the one hand, and white backlash and political retrenchment on the other.
