Okay, since you really need some perspective...<quoted text> Stuck in the past I see Ole dumb one. You can post as many quotes from people no longer living all you want. Your retarded ass still haven't answered the question," how did the southern states become Republican states when in Civil War times, the South was known as southern democrats. Until then Cracker STFU!
Thousands of blacks had moved out of the south by the 1940s - called the Great Migration - moving west and north.
As white Democrats in the South lost dominance and the federal courts declared the Democratic White Primary elections unconstitutional, the GOP expanded its base throughout the South after 1968 largely due to its strength among socially conservatives, Evangelical Protestants and traditionalist Roman Catholics. The south began to take on the two-party apparatus which characterized most of the nation.
Look it up if you don't believe me.
