The racial issue was clearly a north/south thing, not a democrat/republican thing. The dems just happened to dominate the southern congress.

Let's take a look at the 1964 Civil Rights Act:

House:
Southern Democrats: 7-87 (7%-93%)
Southern Republicans: 0-10 (0%-100%)
Northern Democrats: 145-9 (94%-6%)
Northern Republicans: 138-24 (85%-15%)
Senate:
Southern Democrats: 1-20 (5%-95%)
Southern Republicans: 0-1 (0%-100%)
Northern Democrats: 45-1 (98%-2%)
Northern Republicans: 27-5 (84%-16%)

And the 1968 Civil Rights Act:

Senate:
Democrats: 42-17 (71.2% For, 28.8% Against)
Republicans: 29-3 (90.6% For, 9.4% Against)
House:
Democrats: 150-88 (63% For, 37% Against)
Republicans: 100-84 (54.3% For, 45.6% Against)

How did he get in there? I would like to know who that was and from which southern state. My guess would be a border state, not a true former Confederate state. I guess I could search the bill and find the actual votes on the gov. site.

Then you have the grand total of "Southern Republicans: 0-10 (0%-100%)" ten house members.

Of course none of these "Southren" Republicans had the gonads to vote for the civil rights bill, certain death, politically speaking.

Well, I see on Wiki the "Southern" refers to the former Confederacy, and John Tower was the R - senator from Texas. Cannot find the ten house Republicans from the south.

And note that after the civil rights legislation the south became solidly republican....no coincidence.

This is the famous "Southern strategy" of the GOP at the time.........
If you are not familiar with it Google it and learn about the GOP's Racist strategy for gaining power (it worked)

Oh really? It worked?

Evidently, the Leftist whackos who once again tried to define Republicans by their own prejudices seem to have missed the mark "a little".

RNC Chief to Say It Was 'Wrong' to Exploit Racial Conflict for Votes

By Mike Allen

Thursday, July 14, 2005

It was called "the southern strategy," started under Richard M. Nixon in 1968, and described Republican efforts to use race as a wedge issue -- on matters such as desegregation and busing -- to appeal to white southern voters.

Ken Mehlman, the Republican National Committee chairman, this morning will tell the NAACP national convention in Milwaukee that it was "wrong."

"By the '70s and into the '80s and '90s, the Democratic Party solidified its gains in the African American community, and we Republicans did not effectively reach out," Mehlman says in his prepared text. "Some Republicans gave up on winning the African American vote, looking the other way or trying to benefit politically from racial polarization. I am here today as the Republican chairman to tell you we were wrong."

BA- But they continue doing it...despite the apology for their pandering to racists.

Yes BA,
Before the implementation of Nixon's "southern strategy" all black people were republican communists. White southerners were catholic fascists. Jewish people were moderate Rastafarian's. Immigrants from southern Europe were pre-neocons. Thanks for the insight!!!
