Out of that pile of BS let's just grab the low hanging fruit and go from there:<quoted text>
You are attempting to claim that the CRA suddenly made Dem leaders who had centuries of bigotry behind them like Gore and Byrd suddenly not racist?
The Southern Dems did not suddenly become Reps. There was a variety of causes for the Southern shift. 1) Black population moving away from the South 2) Rejection of Dem leaders policies of the past 3) non-racial policies such as taxes and spending
To claim that the Southern Dems switched parties because they were racist is a NJ fantasy trip in his lame attempt to outrun the history of Southern Dems. It was childish on NJ part and I find it amusing how many Progressives rushed in to join in with it. Check out who pushed through the CRA -hint it wasn't the Dems voting as bloc to support it.
Before the Voting Rights Act of 1965 most blacks in the south were disenfranchised.
Go ahead, explain away.
