    Talk about "fail". That has to be the stupidest comment in all the posts I've seen during all the years I've debated Southern apologists.
    Yes, the Democrats sicked dogs and fierhoses on blacks in the 60's.

    Then they fillibustered the voting rights act, then built massive complexes to hold generations of dependent blacks.

    You keep talking, but history is not on your side.

    Ah, another one who thinks the Southern Democrats of yesteryear are the same as the Democrats of Today. You just keep denying that all the racists who used to vote for Democrats down South turned to the Republicans after the "Southern Strategy" was implemented.

    Why haven't you addressed the Southern Strategy in any of your posts. It's been brought up at least a half-dozen times in direct response to the nonsense you're posting. Are you running from it?

    Better to keep 'em in the cotton fields. Eh? That is what this thread is about: Slavery and Mississippi not ratifying the 13th Amendment until well into the Y2K's.

    BTW: I love how Southerners point to some of the race-related problems up North to justify their abhorrent past. Nobody's buying though.

    And, the economic mess is certainly not Barack Obama's doing. Were you asleep from 2001 through 2009?

    Yes, Kennedy sending the National Guard into Mississippi in 1963 violated Mississippi's right to murder civil rights workers. Sheesh.

    You know that segregation was already on its way out, and the law didn't suddenly change everyone's mind. Why don't you do some research before trying to paint Ron Paul as being against civil rights.

    Jeez, can you read? Ron Paul was against the 1964 Civil Rights Act. He puts property rights above Civil Rights. Ron Paul is still against Civil Rights, and there's not a doubt in any reasonable person's mind that Paul would repeal it if he had the chance.

    How does it feel to be totally wrong?

    Yea you brought them out of the cotton fields, sicked dogs on them, burned crosses in their yards and then put them in housing developments.

    Southerners are exponentially smarter than their freeze drizd brained Liberal brothers up North. WE didn't vote for a guy because the media told us to

    And 2001-2009 ? No try 1992 to 2007 and more accurately 1992 to 2000 as Clinton, Cisneros, Rains, Frank, Cuomo and Dodd fleeced the American tax payer for trillions and caused a market collapse at the same time.

    HUDs policies to force the GSEs to buy up trash loans wasn't Bush's. It was part of Clintons 1994 Home Ownership Strategy....

    You need to read up a bit if your'e going to try and blame this on Bush who from 2002 to 2007 tried to get a handle on the GSEs but to no avail.

    Democrat Congress and all.

    So try again. Obama watched the greatest bubble ever wash out 6 trillion out of the market and what did he do ?

    He passed the most destructive law ever concieved. ObamaCare. Oh and he passed stimulus which paid back his public union buddies and wasted billions on now bankrupt green emergy companies.

    He owns this mess.

    That is certainly the implication if you're a hyperbolist. But since Rosa Parks sat down up front about 9 years before the law was passed, I think we can assume that I didn't mean that. Are you telling me blacks never sat at the counter prior to the law being passed? Times were changing, there is no doubt. I didn't say it was over. But the law didn't change people's hearts and minds.

    I was there when itwas happening and blacks were not permitted to sit at the counters.











    Eateries had a take out window for blacks. They were not allowed inside.

    That was obvious. The bigots in the South squealed like stuck pigs for years when LBJ rammed that legislation through. In fact, they squealed so much, the GOP found an opportunity and implemented the "Southern Strategy".

    Thanks for making my case.
