Logan analyzes a database of black office holders in the postbellum South compiled by Eric Foner, the DeWitt Clinton Professor Emeritus of History at Columbia University, supplemented with census data and tax records. Logan finds that for each additional dollar in per capita tax revenue collected in 1870, a black politician was 25% more likely to experience violence.

Put another way, a black politician representing a county with hypothetical per capita tax revenue of $2 would have been 25% more likely to be violently attacked than a black officeholder representing a county with per capita tax revenue of $1.
