While divisions between groups may be grounded in structural conditions, actual patterns of actor formation and conflict are shaped by the field of political opportunities, by group capacities for organization, and by cultural traditions and forms of solidarity.
Likewise, group cultural solidarity drew from a variable mix of white supremacism, Protestant moralism, patriotism, vigilantism and fraternalism, which in some cases might be secret and menacing and in others relatively open and non-violent (Blee, 1991, p. 138).
