Speaking of Ronald Reagan's views on civil rights and race in the 1960s, I just found a profile of him from Look Magazine, right before he won the 1966 gubernatorial election in California.

No, in that very interview, Lee Atwater says quite clearly that there *used* to be a racist southern strategy in the 1960s but then claims they didn't use it in the 1980 campaign.

First of all, yes, the Democratic Party *was* the party of slavery and segregation for most of the 19th century and the early 20th century. And yes, the Republican Party in Lincoln's era was the party of civil rights! Excellent textbook. Study it and then don't ever let a republican claim some racial high ground again. -dbciii

Kevin Williamson has responded to my thread about how segregationist Democrats of the 1960s and 1970s were roundly regarded as conservatives by just pretending that we were actually talking about the 1930s the whole time.

You know who thought Southern Democrats were conservative? The head of the Republican National Committee, who went down to Birmingham in 1952 to make the case that the Dixiecrats had a natural home in the GOP and should switch. You know who else? ME! I am old enough to remember before the Southern Strategy. -dbciii

A history lesson *is* warranted. Senators James Eastland and Herman Talmadge were southern *conservatives*— as were other segregationists, in both parties.

Poor confused @DineshDSouza challenged people to provide examples of Republicans who owned slaves in 1860, and we've done just that

"All you would have to do is name one solitary Republican who owned a slave and I would have to take it back."

"Those who don't study history…" Thank you, professor Kruse, for your contributions, both direct and through your students. Historians are some of histories unsung heroes. -dbciii

Hey, I wonder what leaders of the civil rights movement had to say about comparisons between gay rights and civil rights? Let's take a look!

The realignment was clearest in the presidential contests of the 1960s. MS broke its age-old ties to national Democrats and instead chose independent segregationists in 1960 (Harry Byrd) & 1968 (George Wallace) and a GOP opponent of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 (Goldwater).

Every major civil rights law of the 1960s -- the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, the Fair Housing Act -- was introduced by Democrats in Congress, passed by a Democratic House and a Democratic Senate and signed into law by a Democratic president.
