    RACE!!!! The racist went to the republican party. And they are still there. That's the way this southern AA see it. Another thing, I still live in the south and not much has changed in attitudes towards race. Only laws have, and the laws are the only thing that keep us off the limb of a tree. State rights righty talk about, is only to keep " outside agitators" ( now the government, white troublemaking freedom riders liberal out). It's all about race. You should see how they treat black people today. They simply use different tactics, like locking our children up in prison for being tardy for class, or using the wrong tone towards teachers. And it says on their record. 76 to 80% of those imprisoned in my home state of Mississippi are black. Slaves! People need to stop beating around the bush and call it what it is. We live it everyday.

      My friends, family, and neighbors can't get over the loss of sovereighnty after the surrender of the Confederacy.  Sovereighnty always meant the ability to trade in and keep slaves.  At first the Republicans supported freedom and the whites loathed the carpet bagging Republicans.  From 1965 through 1980 whites left the Democratic Party for the racist Republican Party.
