    Don't know whether the Reverend was a Communist or just their pawn but, he was surrounded by them and they, to this day, use racial tension as a political ploy.

    you know how the birmingham police and fire department responded to what was a peaceful protest march in 1963? they brought out high pressure fire hoses.

    I don't think it has to be a "large majority" to be a significant segment. I don't think there's any question that there was a significant segment that did not want to see equal rights for black people. I don't like that that's true but there's no use splitting hairs or denying it.
