..... Now let's look at the Senate. Maybe it was better there:

Democrats:
46-21
Republicans:
27-6

Percentage of Democrats favoring the Civil Rights Bill: 69%
Percentage of Republicans favoring Civil Rights Bill: 82%

Still don't understand I see.

How many of those democrats switched over to the Republican Party after that vote BECAUSE the Democrats championed the CRA?

Now, if you want to get into a discussion on northern vs. southern Democrats, we can do that. But that will just play more into the southern ****hole racism theme you guys hate to hear about so much.

Good God. It's like you two have never stepped inside a classroom before. Keep trying to rewrite history. No one with two brain cells to rub together is fooled.

WHO IS A RACIST?


I'll go first. I'm a racist.


















Anyone that says they are not a racist is lying.


It's a question of degree.

I go through the trouble to type out a nice argument and all the Right Wingers flee for the exits.

"Most" who? This statement that you wrote in the above post is blatantly racist and sounds like pure Nazi logic. Not only that, it is demonstrably wrong as well.

Economic inequality creates sub-cultures. Sub-cultures are those at the bottom of the economic ladder who engage in alternative economies to survive. They are not welcomed into the dominant culture so they, clever humans that they are, devise their own culture. Man cannot live without culture.

There have been many such sub-cultures that are purely Caucasian as well. Two still survive in some strength in the Appalachians and the bayous of Louisiana. There is a long history of sub-cultures in every ethnic community as well. I remember seeing a huge Polish sub-culture when I lived in Buffalo. Man is a hierarchical creature. We can't seem to get beyond it. But the capacity of any individual human to achieve far beyond the class he was born into, regardless of race, is beyond debate.
Most who? MOST PEOPLE.

The sub cultures of Appalachia are not embraced (in a positive way) in the same fashion as the cultures of inner city life in Filthadelphia, Baltimore, DC, Detroit or NY...the ghetto lifestyle is glamorized and sought after by many, with the poisonous cultural tentacles reaching all of the way to Suburbia, USA through music and TV. And this malignancy has been enabled by Leftists who truly believe that there is some equivalency to be spoken for.

That argument doesn't wash or even make sense. So those democrats switched only because the other democrats didn't oppose it too to join the republican party, a party that supported that bill even more than the democrats did? Yeah, makes so much sense. The democrat party was the party of racists and now selective racism where it is acceptable to make racist remarks of black and latino conservatives.

The rethugs of today are the dixiecrats of that era. The dems changed fot the better, the rethugs didn't. What barryr is referring to are dixiecrats (similar to the tea party of today)which merged with the rethuglican party.
