After the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, integration, and the old barrier of becoming a Republican removed, Southerners joined a new middle class including transplanted northerners in moving toward the Republican Party.

Integration changed the old racial issues and, in 1963, the federal courts declared the practice of excluding African-American voters from the Democratic primaries unconstitutional.

The New Deal in the 1930s swayed black voters to support Democratic candidates, the shift that convinced many the Republicans were no longer the black party.

Republicans gained ground in the south by the late 1960s because it was no longer a Democratic South. It represented a two-party system by then.

Don't know when usage of common words became associated with bias.
Debunk: 1.show something to be false: to show that something is wrong or false.
Synonyms: expose, show up, deflate, demystify, discredit, set straight, throw light on, lay bare
So I will continue to use the word "debunked" when something is proven false.
And Galt said the "radical left", not "subversive" left, use that word. Why exactly I don't know, but that's his opinion. I'm sure he has his reasons which have nothing to do with me.
"Disprove" is a much better word, based on factual information, rather than the insulting nature of "debunk."

But, do as you choose.

I just did. White Democrats in the South lost dominance and the GOP expanded its base among social conservatives, Evangelical Protestants and traditionalist Roman Catholics after 1968.

The south was no longer the Democratic South. It represented the rest of the nation as a two-party system.

What part don't you understand?

You should be assigned some homework.
Look up:
1. The Great Migration.
2. Democrats lose dominance in the south after 1968.
For extra credit, look up "after 1968, a two-party system in the south characterized most of the nation".
Each answer need not be any longer than one paragraph.

Because the majority of the citizens in those states prefer lower taxes and smaller government.

Tired Of Fact-Checking Those Bogus Right Wing Chain Emails? There’s An App For That!
LazyTruth is a plug-in for Chrome that automatically scans email for information that FactCheck.org and Politifact have deemed false. If something doesn’t check out, it’ll provide a few words of correction and a link to where you can find out more. You can then easily pass that verified information on to the email’s sender. Down the road Stempeck plans to add more kinds of rumors to LazyTruth’s filter — urban myths, hoaxes, false security threats, etc.— but for now the tool is limited to political tall tales.
“Put simply,” Stempeck explained over email (all of which checked out),“LazyTruth is a bridge between low quality information (chain emails) and high quality information (the research outlets that debunk chain emails).” By putting the fact-checking right in your inbox with the forwarded junk, LazyTruth reduces the friction (catch-all phrase for time and effort) between you and a politely worded correction.

Sounds like the perfect tool for the unmotivated welfare crowd that prefers to have someone else do their thinking for them.

Oh yes, let's tell our enemies and the terrorists all of the loopholes in our security programs! Fools!
There will be a poll here shortly asking the voters what is their opinion about the cost of the trip while Obama claims they cannot afford White House tours.

That should go over well. What do you think?

In other words, all Democrats vote for Obamacare, all Republicans voted against it. Your bullshit doesn't fly, azzwipe.
As usual, you are full of shit, Dummy.
Well azzwipe, they are Independents. NOT Democrats.

If it didn't make any difference why did you separate the Independents in your vote totals in your previous post.

See Sir, Aunt Bettie & the rest of the republicans refuse to simply say I was right, that the 2 parties crossed lines. They refuse because, when I'm hearted debate, they often drift back in time & say,"the democratic party is racist, forgetting the Republican party of today is the Democratic party of yesterday. In other words, putting their feet in their mouths. So, I encourage y'all to keep referencing quotes from back in the day. It further proves your racist nature to go along with your ignorance!

Well stupid, no Republicans voted for it -did they?

Independents caucusing with Dems is what gave the Dems control of Congress on several occasions.

Tell the public that these two people makes Obamacare bipartisan -stand back from the jeers.

So does Israel but she bends over backwards to pledge her allegiance to them.
“Israel has admitted for the first time that it has been giving Ethiopian Jewish immigrants birth-control injections, often without their knowledge or consent.” Many of the immigrant women were given shots of Depo-Provera to control the population due to a fear expressed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “that illegal immigrants from Africa ‘threaten our existence as a Jewish and democratic state.’”

The New KKK has double since Obama has been elected, Libs are KKK every day, and twice on Sundays racist f*ck denigrate black people. Obama has done more to enslave blacks, Klan Parent Hood is killing blacks, the Klu Klux Klan loves Obama, the KKK would have committed suicide if Herman Cain was elected
