  •  there is enough of us non-racists (0+ / 0-)

    and people who could care less about race to outweigh the racists.

    duh.

    non-whites increased by major percentages if i remember correctly.  also youth turned out big time iirc.  not to mention that the white voter turnout decreased if i remember correctly.

    Look at this map.  The south is very much still racist.  Imo, the south and the midwest are very much still hillbilly racist.

    •  This map doesn't prove racism though (0+ / 0-)

      It actually looks better for the Democrats than it did with white Democrats Kerry and Gore on the top of the ticket. They got ZERO electoral votes there. Again, there clearly is racism there and elsewhere. The electoral map sure doesn't necessarily prove that though.

        a lot of people perked up.  

        the map doesn't prove racism.  it does help bring attention to the issue imo.

        racism is rampant throughout the south.  i live here, i should know.

        •  i should add that after travelling around (0+ / 0-)

          the country for my work, i have met many different types of people.

          i will concede that a lot of what some may put in the racism category is just plain prejudice.
