    Your "reality" had nothing to do with the post you quoted, we call this a non-sequitur. Look it up.

    Uh, you were talking about the level of voters who hold to segregationist views that voted for Thurmond....and I asked you to continue on discussing THAT idea......but suddenly you switch to discussing Helms!

    OK.

    Let's go with that.....what percent of voters that held to segregationist views voted for Helms?

    I really don't gotta let them save face. They didn't ever do anything to earn the right to that.

    I'm not asking you about races. I'm asking you about ethnicities. You obviously do think light skinned people whose heritage is northern and central European are superior to people from any other place on the planet. You don't have to keep this silly game of evading the question. You've already told us this by playing that game. Game's over. You are a Eurosupremacist.

    That's nothing any state should brag about.

    And yet the entire region went to war over it. Ever wonder why poor, landless southern boys and men were so eager to die to protect the human property of rich men?
