I didn't think I would have to provide pre-modern examples, when there are modern examples.
So you didn't read the article or the points made in the OP. Got it. Thanks for making the point again. At least you are consistent.
Do you think the South stopped being racist in 1965 and picked it back up in 1993?
Ok. I'll roll with it. MS was blue in several national elections. So it was, in fact, the DEMOCRATS who were the racists. Got it. Thanks for proving the article right.
Is your argument really that the South went from a Mississippi GOVERNOR protesting a black girl attending a public university to being non-racist and then back to racist? Wow
Beautiful deflection. This is not what the OP is about. Solid point for another thread though.
Even if there was a break, which I don't think there was, how does that change the fact that the South IS racist today
You are on a roll! This is fantasic.
Congress had reauthorized the VRA multiple times since then (the South gets congressional representation, no?) and the Court has consistently upheld it.
More consistency. This is good. You are proving to be really good at ignoring the point of the OP.
Your best argument is that everyone is racist.
I made this point in one of my replies earlier in the thread...
Again...you are missing the entire point of the OP.
I don't know why you are fighting so hard to show the South isn't racist. Even it's black legislators are, see Alabama legislator's emails.
Again. Not what I said, as the OP.
The point of the OP is "who" was showing the racism if the south was, in fact, this bastion of racist hell. Repubs or Dems. History has shown it is the Democrats...
I don't feel like repeating the intent of the article. Again.
