    Let's just let words mean whatever I want them to mean. It will make communication very clear. It'll be cool.

But, hey, Jim Crow Democrats something Robert Byrd KKK something Gov. Northam blackface something.
    A little of in timing. Civil Rights Act (1964) and Voting Rights Act (1965) were the big catalysts. Northern Democrats were joined by enough Republicans to break the Southern Democrats filibusters. Then Nixon used the " southern strategy" to win in 1968 and then again in 1972 when McGovern ran as an anti-war left wing Democrat.
