1) Either the Northern and Southern demographics of the US traded places(quite literally), or
2) the parties switched their voting bases.
The Democrats taking over the generally multicultural, multiethnic North, the GOP taking over the South. Now, we can play your little gotcha "well you can't name any Dixiecrats who went GOP " game or we can focus on the FACT that the GOP is now solidly in control of the pro-desegregation South and all of its racist and non-racist constituents.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
