    Default Mississippi Governor to run for President 2012?

    Haley Barbour says the poorKu Klux Klan is a just a misunderstood group of good old boys who got together from time to to time to do good things for the community.

    the "quote" you attribute to Haley Barbour is actually that of the author of the article and his interpretation...

    playing fast and loose with the facts/quotes again ???

    http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politic...esidential-run


    Governor Barbour discussed the Citizens Council as well as the Ku Klux Klan in an interview for The Weekly Standard magazine. "You heard of the Citizens Councils?" Barbour said in the interview. "Up north they think it was like the KKK. Where I come from it was an organization of town leaders. In Yazoo City they passed a resolution that said anybody who started a chapter of the Klan would get their ass run out of town.

    wasn't the only member of congress in recent memory that actually had been a member of the ku klux klan from the racist democrat party? (robert byrd)

    So if it is as the left wing says, they should welcome him with open arms. If it is not, the left can continue to hate him for no apparent reason.

    It's hard to believe the Republican party would support such a man for President . . . . well, maybe not. Is there any wonder so few minorities support and identify with that party?

    Some did, and some didnít. But, at least Byrd publically admitted he was wrong, and did apologize for his past involvement with the KKK and his stance on segregation. You can decide for yourself if it was sincere and if he had really changed. I do believe people are capable of change. However, I would have had a hard time accepting him.

    In contrast, Barbour is not apologetic for his support of the White Citizens Council. Nor, does he apologize for his blatant misrepresentation of what they were about and the things they did. He can be added to the list of other unrepentant Republicans that have espoused racist views. Yet, the Republican Party does little or nothing to distance themselves from these people. That is why most minorities donít identify with them or support them. It may not seem important to you if it is not directed at you, but when it is, trust me, it is very important.

    Yea and....In contrast, The Obama Administration is not apologetic for the actions of the NEW BLACK PANTHER PARTY. Nor, does he apologize for thier blatant misrepresentation of what they are about and the things they do. He can be added to the list of other unrepentant Democrats tha thave espoused racist views. Yet, the Democratic party does little or nothing to distance themselves from these people......It may not seem important to you if it is not directed at you, but when it is, turst me, it is very important.

    with all due respect Blackstone,don't assume that all the party supports Barbour, his views, and also there are other minorities like myself that identify themselves as conservatives and we don't tolerate racism of any kind...Racism is not a republican or democrat problem, its a societal problem and should not be tolerated by anyone

    Why would the Obama Administration apologize for the actions of the New Black Panther Party? Are they apart of his administration? Have they even identified themselves as Democrats? I must have missed that. And, since you mentioned it, how did they blatantly misrepresent what they were about? It seems to me, they have been pretty clear what their agenda is.

    Now, on to the Democrats that have espoused racist views. While I have no doubt there are Democrats that are racists, please point out the ones espousing racist view points, and what they said or did. Then we can have a discussion.

    I make no such assumption. However, it seems the party as a whole tends to turn a blind eye to those that make such comments, and does not make them unwelcome within its ranks. I agree that racism is not exclusive to either party, and should not be tolerated. But, that is just the point, they have been tolerating it. As a result, those with racist views tend to gravitate to the Republican Party.
