Sounds like the same theory I've heard from another recently. That is some theory expecting people to believe all the racists were attracted to a party so much more in favor of civil rights than the democratic party.


Other than your and another's anecdotal perceptions, what evidence do you have to support your theory? Something to show your theory is anything more than skewed perception?

Well, some of your post is most assuredly correct - some of it.

Thanks.


I did get a kick out of Tink's theory that when the CRA passed, all the southern racist dems revolted by leaving the dems to begin voting repub. I'm not sure what would motivate these racist dems

"Uh....you talking about 1912? In case you've been sleeping, it's now almost 2012. "


I was giving a specific example of a clear democratic pattern over the years. As yu may have noticed, the discussion also moved on to 1964, where the dems still weren't all that chummy by comparison the republicans. So, out of that

"as Lyndon Johnson indicated- and was borne out to be true:


When Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act in 1964 he stated that, because of this the Democratic Pary would lose the south for 50 years - he was close - it was 40."

Uh....you talking about 1912? In case you've been sleeping, it's now almost 2012. Wake up and you'll see a lot has changed over the past 100 years, not only the Republican and Democratic Parties.

Did you have to go that far back to find a Dem who allowed segregation? By the way, I think the fact that he was from VA explains it. Look at the kooks, Cuccinelli and McDonnell, we got now in our state government.

What experience is that?
