And in the D column, I think Mark Pryor said he was a Young Earth Creationist in Bill Mahers movie.
This again? Yes, he was. And when the Democratic party decided that support for civil rights was more important than appeasing the dinosaurs in the South, Thurmond (and many other Southern Dems) decided to change their party instead of their minds.

The minorities have been given all possible legal support. Other than coddling them, they’re on their own now. And statistics show, many minorities (such as Asiatics) are even more successful than WASPs and other whites.
So you support gerrymandering just to ensure majority-black districts? How about majority-vegetarian districts? Or majority-Scientologist districts. (Both are possible considering there are 435 House seats).
