    I'm not sure which is worse, your misreading/misunderstanding of the context of the original post, or the claims of "running away". I mean, that is some kind of superiority delusions being posted.

    Or is it you can't bring yourself to admit that racism had little to do with the quarrel between the north and south.... and that the north is no more "righteous" than the south when it comes to racism?

    The Slavery dispute between the north and south was about economics against morality. Not racism against racial equality.

    You admit there were a lot of them, I just hoped you had some insight into the level of support he had among segregationists, which is why I asked you to elaborate.
    How many times do I have to tell you that there is not exactly any polls taking anyone's views on race on election day. There is really no way to know their views. However knowing the good ol boy network like I do, its not surprising if there are more segregationists than I know about here. Same holds true for both Carolinas.

    Why do you keep on insisting that you think you understand the context of the post....even after it was implied that you ought to do a tiny bit of research?

    I never asked for "polls", I asked for your insight on a subject you commented on. If you have really no idea what you are talking about, I'll accept that answer too.

    So here we are again, you are saying you have some insight into this topic, but you won't give any estimates on the percentage of segregationists that supported Thurmond or Helms.

    I am tired of repeating myself because you can't seem to comprehend. Of course being from the Southwest that makes sense. You really have to live here to get a feel for things

    You keep repeating what I am not asking for, you haven't expanded on what you supposedly do have some insight on, you just keep on avoiding the subject you brought up, segregationists. I can understand your trepidation in discussing them, what I don't understand is this attempt to divert with an ad hominem about the region I live in. We have lots and lots of racists here, they just go after Mexicans, but it is almost the same story, one of hypocrisy, lies and revisionism. I have a fairly good idea on what percentage of segregationists supported Helms and Thurmond (it was very high) and I didn't need you to confirm it, it was more a test to see how honest you could be about it....and you answered that.

    If "removing/abolishing the Confederate Flag" would actually create racial harmony in America; I would personally buy a prime-time commercial slot and burn the Stars&Bars on live network television myself!

    Unfortunately; these warm-fuzzy-feel-good-solutions empower people who perceive it as weakness and make further accusations of "racism" followed up by more ridiculous demands which continuously escalate the problem!

    And politician's who propose these ridiculous fixes, don't care about anything but scoring political points!

    The only way America can fix its race relations is to abandon political correctness and lose its white guilt!

    Surely I'm not the only one here that can see all these obvious realities?!
