never said anything that was bad for the gop didn't exist. of course it does. but not to the level of some diabolical plot.

i know tons of reps and dems and honestly, the only time i hear the n word is here. i know some good ole southern boys too and they NEVER use that word. maybe with someone else but not around me.

at the same time, i would make sure the focus isn't squarely on the gop to the point where folks don't challenge the dems more on education or the industrial prison system or anything else that they can have a better influence on.

The whole point is replacing the n-word with code language, so of course you don't usually hear it.

weird how I had only heard the term 'southern strategy' about twice in my life until we elected a black president. Since then I've heard it 23984843587243 times.


Must be a coincidence.

Are you implying it's not a thing, or just that people didn't bring it up until lately?

Cause I heard about it all through high school and college government classes. It's a very pivotal thing in American politics.

"The strategy was first adopted under future Republican President Richard Nixon and Republican Senator Barry Goldwater[6] in the late 1960s.[7] The strategy was successful in many regards. It contributed to the electoral realignment of Southern states to the Republican Party, but at the expense of losing more than 90 percent of black voters to the Democratic Party."

This is why it's rich when people say that 90% of black people vote for Democrats because they're racist.

Atwater says taxes hurt blacks more than whites. He says there ar new euphemisms. And?

Also. You Dred Scotts tell me what I don't know about race relations since you guys are gurus.

it's gone from an interesting sidebar in electoral history to somehow (?) relevant enough to today's politics somehow to see it mentioned every week.

It can't be just a happy accident.

You can look at huddle posts and news feeds on facebook and go ahh. Looks like some robots have gotten their marching orders for the day.
Then the slightest of push back turns them into midde school girls.

I've been talking about the southern strategy since people here all started their "Obama is gonna give the *code words* free stuff."

Believe it or not I've never had a Facebook account and i haven't watched tv news/politics since 2004.
