    The overt racism is a family trait. His father held that seat for 32 years by playing the worst sort of racial politics. The main thing that kept me from identifying myself as a Democrat while living in MO (almost all of my first 33 years) was having Bill Clay and Dick Gephardt as the most prominent examples. Lacy Clay's father used to talk about MO-1 as his son's birthright and a place where white people had "no business staying."
