  •  Shameful southern strategy (7+ / 0-)

    What a shame that republicans decided that the way forward was to exploit racism in the south.  If both parties were strongly behind ending racism many of the problems we have today would not exist.

    •  The Republican Elite was not racist. (5+ / 0-)

      They cared not a rats ass about weather their economic victims were black or white, and had as little distaste for poorer whites as blacks. They were ALL about strategy to assure unfettered power for the already privileged, and set one race against the other using divide and conquer tactics only as a means to secure that power.  
      The main thing they do not like is anyone who is not either richer than they, or is not under their command.
