That would be rather obtuse don't you think?

    No, I don't think so at all. This thread was a chance for people of all political persuasions to condemn the racism of the past. However, instead of that, you chose to absurdly distort history in an attempt to scapegoat liberalism. However, no one was fooled. All you did was remind people why the museum also includes racist artifacts from the present and how the Republicans went from being the liberal anti-slavery party to being the party that hurls racist insults like "Kenyan" at the president and distorts the truth. The Republicans disgust me just as much as the bigots who screamed insults at African Americans as they tried to enter "white only" schools.

    Congressional vote for the Civil Rights Act:

    Note: "Southern", as used in this section, refers to members of Congress from the eleven states that made up the Confederate States of America in the American Civil War. "Northern" refers to members from the other 39 states, regardless of the geographic location of those states.

    The original House version:
    Southern Democrats: 7–87 (7%–93%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–10 (0%–100%)
    Northern Democrats: 145-9 (94%–6%)
    Northern Republicans: 138-24 (85%–15%)

    The Senate version:
    Southern Democrats: 1–20 (5%–95%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–1 (0%–100%)
    Northern Democrats: 45-1 (98%–2%)
    Northern Republicans: 27-5 (84%–16%)

    I have to do no such thing. It's about public support, not members of Congress. All the election stats show support from the south changing to Republican after 1964. Just look up all the elections in Wikipedia.

    No, I am denying a distortion, a falsehood, a lie that has been proffered for far too long by liberals whom are consumed with 'white guilt'....See, you are part of the problem Thunder, you continue to further the lie.

    on the contrary, if you are spreading the idea that Southern racist Democrats didn't flee to the GOP after the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act, then it is YOU who is furthering a lie.

    The proof is in the voting statistics: From the 1860s to the 1950s the GOP was essentially a non-issue for the solidly Democratic South. With the passing of the CRA1964, the South starts becoming a GOP stronghold and Democrats lose their stronghold. This leads to two possible conclusions:

    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
