Strom Thurmond Wasn't A Racist

Trent Lott isn't either.

Nor is Jesse Helms.

Really, they are/were nice guys. Not racists at all. I mean, sure, they pandered to racists. But, you know, they weren't really racists themselves. It's just...politics, right? They just always did and said things against the interests of African-Americans to get votes - not because they themselves are bigots.

What a load of crap. As is the continued insistence that George Bush isn't anti-gay.
