    I can cite many of the republican figures that you name, especially as I was born in Michigan and have lived in Illinois for over 20 years.

    And in the runup to the 1948 election, if the GOP Congress really wanted to do something, they could have put legislation on Truman's desk to sign regarding the racial integration of the military and, in fact, Truman initially considered doing it by way of the legislative route.

    The republicans were too chicken and Truman wanted those black votes (in part) to cull together wehatever coalition of voters he could cull together to win election.
