I Love Being Proven Sort of Right.

File this one under The Persistence of Republican Redneck Racism.  I used to toss off as a guesstamated figure that around a good 1/3 of Republicans were still flat out racists.  I did not mean just a little bit.  I meant FLAT OUT.  Guess I was right at least for Mississippi.  Alabammy  is slightly less odious.  Only a bit more than 1/5 or so are hard core racist, that is if you accept the premise that one has to be a hard core racist to think interracial marriage should be illegal.

Here we are in the 21st Century.  The Democratic Party is, at least.  The GOP  is still suck in the 19th Century.  Lots of the membership, at least.

Go Here.

On Monday, polling firm Public Policy Polling (PPP) revealed that 29 percent of self-identified Republicans surveyed in Mississippi believe that interracial marriage should be illegal. Fifty-four percent said intermarriage should remain legal, and the rest responded that they weren't sure. The survey also found that 21 percent of self-identified Republicans polled in Alabama believe that interracial marriage should be illegal.
And I thought the stats that came out recently about how many of them Deep South rednecks thought P. Obama  was a Muslim was mostly just Redneck Republican truthiness.  But the Deep South is still a shit hole of way too much racism.  Seems to me.
