Robert Byrd joined the Ku Klux Klan at age 24
Here is a quote from Byrd:
" I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds. ”
He apologized for his intolerance years later, but I always felt he was a bigot. I am sorry he is ill, he has done some good in his days, but a part of me can't forget his past.

22. Before the Civil Rights Act
Southern Democrats were racial bigots After LBJ signed it they became Republicans, and the Democrats lost the south just as LBJ predicted
TWO prominent southern opponents to civil rights became Republicans - and a handful of minor characters - that is IT. THE REST were, and remained DEMOCRATS.
Bull Conner - Democrat
Al Gore Sr. - Democrat
Robert Byrd - Democrat
George Wallace - Democrat
Ernest "Fritz" Hollings - Democrat
J. William Fulbright - Democrat
Sam Ervin - Democrat
Richard Russell - Democrat
Huey Long - Democrat
Lester Maddox - Democrat
Orville Faubus - Democrat
And HUNDREDs of if not thousands of others.I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

At one time the KKK was the fastest growing political party in the US."What this country needs are more unemployed politicians."
