markust: Comparing conservatives today with conservatives in the south 50 years ago is like comparing apples and oranges, and that's not too far a stretch since many apples are grown in the north and oranges are grown in the south.
There are liberals now just as racist as any 1960`s southern democrat. They see the way to handle the blacks and hispanics is to keep them poor on welfare, medicare, and food stamps, pump them up for votes by promising them more of the same and keep them clueless as to the modern-day slavery they remain in.
The black upper and middle classes in America are growing and have realized their brothers are enslaved by entitlements from the government in exchange for votes for liberal democrats. That is why more and more blacks are becoming republicans, and are being welcomed to participate in the party to help educate and free their brethren from the disproportionate cycle of welfare, drugs, crime, and prison they are in.

In 1948 the conservative portion of the Southern Democratic party formed the States Rights Democratic Party (Dixiecrats). The conservative Dixiecrats opposed racial integration and wanted to retain Jim Crow laws and white supremacy. Strom Thurmond was the most famous Dixiecrat and a huge racist. The Dixiecrat party by their very creation clearly shows that the conservatives in the south were way more racist. Not saying the liberals weren't but the scale tips heavily towards the conservatives when it comes to racism in the old south.
