Right, because now it the racist Southern Republican bloc.
Thanks for clearin' that up.
That it is progressing towards less racism is because of the influx of Northeastern liberals and media expansion.

This attitude was rejected by the American public.
Southern Dems eventually also rejected this ideology and showed their disdain by becoming Reps.
