Racism in politics (D) from the conservative view point

Robert Byrd (D)

1940s, Robert Byrd (D) recruited 150 of his friends and associates to create a new chapter of the Ku Klux Klan.

"....he [Byrd] was once an Exalted Cyclops in the Ku Klux Klan. Byrd is a throwback to -- and remains nostalgic for -- a bygone (and not usually lamented) political era....." --

"A Senator's Shame
Byrd, in His New Book, Again Confronts Early Ties to KKK" --

" 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. " -- Robert C. Byrd
