    He should be judged on his own beliefs and actions, not his father's. My grandfather on ,my father's side was the town drunk and a leader in the local chapter of the KKK. My father became active in the civil rights movement as a freshman in college and was active in the campaigns of a number of liberal/moderate Democrat campaigns, as well as the civil rights movement, throughout his life. Each person gets to choose what side of the road they wish to walk. From the story, however, it sounds like more may be involved than the father's politics.

    I'm not sure that I know why RP posted this story. However, I see nothing in it suggesting that the Republican Party is in any way racist or even that the person elected is racist (He may be, but I don't see it in the story.). There is no question that Robert Byrd was a bigot for a good (or bad) part of his life just as was LBJ and many others -- both Dems and Reps. I find it more interesting tht many, if not most of these one-time bigots managed to grow past their bigotry.

    As much as I hated Bush as President, I believe he may have been one of the least racist (if not the least racist) President in our nation's history. Credit where credit due....
