    Why aren't you asking that question? You don't seem to mind pissing up a rope when you thought that every legislator in Mississippi was white.

    Kinda like when white voters were intimidated in Philidelphia by racist blacks and the DOJ ignored it. Right?

    Another point, is why are we screaming "racism" but only applying it to the white legislators and giving the black legislators a free pass? Is this just another chance to stereotype southern whites, or flat out hypocrisy?
    The only black racists I've seen are republican, Toms.

    By the way, that's the 1950's and 1960's, not the 1850's and 60's.
    So those democrats were against big government ?
