This paper examines The Leopard's Spots by Thomas Dixon Jr. a noted proponent of white supremacist thinking who wrote and was popular during the early Twentieth Century. The paper focuses on whiteness and how Dixon seems compelled to represent it in his novel and how the visual markers and visual metaphors the he deploys throughout his work both uphold and undermine his white supremacist position.
