    Everything I'd seen of the latter-day Buckley said he had, if not fully repudiated, at least moderated his earlier views on race.

    Though I was never a fan of his, I'm disappointed to see I was mistaken.

      Than others.  He renounced a lot of his earlier beliefs about race.  It didn't seem to change his opinion on policy matters but I do rememberreading his recantation on his racial views.

      I'm on a cellphone and can't easily pull up a link but I'm sure it's a quick find on the intertubz.

      He renounced the idea of government-sanctioned segregation after the conservatives had truly lost on that issue, and not a moment before. But I saw interviews with him in the late 70s and early 80s where he was still talking about how "white culture" was the superior culture, and thus white people should naturally be the ones in charge.
