Below is a quote by an Oklahoma legislator who wanted to abolish affirmative action because she thinks blacks dont work as hard and have less inititive.....
Here is a YT video discussing the above....The Oklahoma House of Representatives has approved a proposed constitutional amendment that would eliminate Affirmative Action in state government.
The proposed amendment passed by a vote of 59-14 Wednesday evening, with 28 members absent or not voting. It had already passed the Senate and will go to a vote of the people next year…
Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City, said minorities earn less than white people because they don’t work as hard and have less initiative.
“We have a high percentage of blacks in prison, and that’s tragic, but are they in prison just because they are black or because they don’t want to study as hard in school? I’ve taught school, and I saw a lot of people of color who didn’t study hard because they said the government would take care of them.”
Sally Kern thinks black people are lazy and don

I'd protest too if someone threatened my free ride! These lazy parasites on unemployment/disabilty/food stamps/medicaid should try working. If they actually paid taxes they would be protesting Obama's socialistic agenda.

Here is another quote suggesting the days of pandering to the white racist south are over because Obama got elected without them.....Following Bush's re-election, Ken Mehlman, Bush's campaign manager and Chairman of the RNC, held several large meetings with African-American business, community, and religious leaders. In his speeches, he apologized for his party's use of the Southern Strategy in the past. When asked about the strategy of using race as an issue to build GOP dominance in the once-Democratic South, Mehlman replied, "Republican candidates often have prospered by ignoring black voters and even by exploiting racial tensions," and, "by the '70s and into the '80s and '90s, the Democratic Party solidified its gains in the African-American community, and we Republicans did not effectively reach out. Some Republicans gave up on winning the African-American vote, looking the other way or trying to benefit politically from racial polarization. I am here today as the Republican chairman to tell you we were wrong."
Merle Black, an expert on the region’s politics at Emory University in Atlanta, said the Republican Party went too far in appealing to the South, alienating voters elsewhere." .......
Southern strategy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
But Romney is using the southern strategy to shore up the southern vote so it remains to be seen if those days are really over like the above "expert" suggests and it will all depend on if Obama can get re-elected without the south like he did in 2008. Neither Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter would have won without the south, but then they were white southern boys.
