    Just 40 years ago white people in the South killed African Americans just for wanting to ride on the bus and go to the same schools as white people. And these racists are still alive and have had kids... I wonder what they taught these kids about minorities?

    Some even still wave the confederate flag for Christ sake! The confederacy's defense of slavery was shameful and disgusting, as was the South's reaction to African American's wishes for more rights.

    You don't seem to know much about the modern South.

    But by all means, continue pontificating in ignorance.

    Yes, something to that degree. Whether or not they let their notions affect their voting, I'm not sure. I'm not sure how radical that is, I guess you can say it is if you like - doesn't change a thing.

    If a police dept. arrests more blacks in a majority black neighborhood then its not prejudiced. If more muslims are searched in a safety check in an airport, thats not racist.

    If someone shoots off the N-word against any black person, that IS racist.

    What else am I to believe? I have nothing to look at except history and the way African Americans were treated in the South during the time period by people who are still alive to this day. And I find it hard to believe these parents taught their kids about equality.

    But please feel free to explain the modern South... I'm sure you could guess I'm not from down there. But I'm always open to learning something new. It's my hope I'm wrong.

    I'd say they are racist in the EXACT same way as other races.

    In fact, maybe you are right, they are slightly different in that they will take advantage of the "race card" in places were it doesn't belong, turning that into a form of racism as well.

    Well, at least the ignorant racist ones do.

    You don't understand what life in the south is like, or what it means when folks wave that flag.

    You only understand what your nearsighted yankee schools taught you

    No its not.....Just listen to rap music, they seem to respond positively to it.

    It doesn't bother me much when a poorly educated person acts racist, but when a well educated one does, it is worrisome. How can anybody spend 4 or more years in college and come out of it as racist as when he started?

    Hell, the worst thing I can think about Byrd isn't that he was a kleagle (I think that's what a recruiting member of the Klan is called). It was that he was among the most wasteful spenders I've ever seen in my life. West Virginia is almost a shrine to his abuse of taxpayer funds.
