    Not much has changed really. They're just not as open as they used to be when the Filibustered the 1964 voting rights act.
    Leftists can only prove their worth if there's a crisis.

    That wasn't the argument, you did not read anything posted and are now engaged in pure straw argument.

    This is the argument, try READING:

    All you are doing is proving that racists exist everywhere (no one denies) and not showing the LEVEL of racism.

    Again, no one has argued racism is exclusive to the South, the argument is the LEVEL and PERSISTENCE of the racism in the South. You changed the argument because you cannot win the argument and you realized from the start.

    Gawd, I hate arguing with folks that won't read.

    Anyone in the GOP who doesn't recognize the fact that the GOP has close to zero support from Blacks in the USA Is out of touch with reality

    Does anyone have any idea why so few Blacks support the GOP/

    I have conflicted thoughts about this. One the one hand, she is right. On the other hand, she's somewhat perpetuating the myth that racism is only a problem for white Southerners and Republicans. It is not. It is very much a problem among white liberals as well.

    Show me that:


    In an interview with NBC News on Thursday, Landrieu was quoted as saying that the South "has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans."

    The comments came after an NBC reporter asked the senator why Obama has such low approval ratings in Louisiana. Landrieu's first response was that the president's energy policies are deeply disliked by residents of the oil and gas-rich state.

    She then added, "I'll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It's been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader."

    I know exactly what a351 posted.

    I'm proving that a351's comment is debatable.

    Black lynchings happened in other states, as well.

    The Liberals have to have a boogie man. They need to keep black folks scared. The Liberal agenda, by itself, is a losing platform.
