The most depressing poll of the year

A plurality of Mississippi Republicans think interracial marriages should be illegal.

But hey, no racism in the Republican party, nosirree! Alrighty, then!

  1. But dude, white people are a victimized majority. Personally, I hope the South will fall again.

  2. A Phil Ochs song comes to mind here.

    " ... Mississippi, find yourself another country to be part of."

  3. And it's eerily appropriate that I came across this story on the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War, a war started by the side whose Vice President blatantly stated, "the great truth [is] that the Negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural moral condition."

    Some things, it seems, have not changed. Alrighty, then!
