      but those were the other kind of Democrats, the racist Southern ones: James Eastland (served 1943-1978) and John Stennis (served 1947-1978). They and their cronies from across the South opposed school desegregation, voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act, opposed the appointment of Thurgood Marshall to the Supreme Court, etc. etc. etc. He was also virulently anti-Communist.
