Racism is wrong on all fronts, but the Democrats have their share of racists, too. Robert Byrd is a former KKK leader, for Pete's sake.
Leftover Dixiecrats are a bit too-easy a target. The really interesting question, something well beyond a blogsized conversation is whether the politics of one party or the other is more prone to perpetuate the institutional racist/sexist/classist barriers that still plague questions of justice for all in America.As a rule, the Republicans have been all about maintaining the status quo.... that's a good thing if you're a financially secure white guy.-- more and more, however, I'm unable to tell one party from the other. I stopped trying around 1980. Since then I try to look at individuals.
