Robert: Commenter Jay m claims that the whole democratic is bigoted. Not only is that statement false now, it has not been true at least since FDR was President. There was wide-spread bigotry in the American South when that area of the country was solid Democratic and politically conservative until the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Since the presidential election of 1968, the Republican Party adopted the southern strategy which was designed to appeal to racially prejudiced white people in the southern states. As a result, the prejudiced conservatives have switched party allegiance from Democratic to Republican. Through out the country since the time of Ronald Reagan, conservatives, who are overwhelmingly racially prejudiced, have identified with the Republican Party while the Democratic Party has increasingly attracted culturally and ethnically moderate to progressive voters.
