I think we can agree that racism carries more weight than honesty about a resume.

doesn't it seem interesting that the National Guard is there immediately when there are riots in Watts or Compton or Newark or Detroit or when black kids want to go to high school in Alabama, yet they take a week to rescue hurricane victims?

the point of that is to demonstrate how there is a grand *perception* of federal racism that has great historical precedent no matter what the present evidence of it might be. perception, in turn, shades reality.
It does seem interesting...were they Federalized?

i can do some research, but i'm pretty sure that Ike sent in the National Guard, though that might have been at Wallace's request ... let me get back to you

not in the south carolina republican primaries.

also, it would be vastly harder to "prove" racism -- all someone needs is to get a photo-op with a black kid on his lap and that's good enough for many people. i'd also think that the burden of proof, with the racist charge, would be on the accuser.

It's the subtle suggestion of racism that kills you.

or that inspires the chorus of "stop playing the race card" which effectively kills suggetsions of racism dead.

That is true, but I rather think that racism as a charge has lost credibility. It has been used a lot in situations where most could see that race was not a believeable factor. Now it's mostly regarded as a form of slander.

Recent revelations indicate that it was a pre-arranged showdown, coordinated by Wallace and the Eisenhower Administration (although Ike and the Feds had the upper hand). Neither treated this as an imminent, ASAP deployment though.
