    I saw this photo on facebook and I didn't think that this 2011 poll was real...

    But I did a quick search...

    "We asked voters on this poll whether they think interracial marriage should be legal or illegal- 46% of Mississippi Republicans said it should be illegal to just 40% who think it should be legal."

    And with that attitude, Mississippi is going to continue to be the bottom of the barrel of the US (among other factors as well).

    southbeach1500 saidMargin of error (at least the number they were comfortable putting out there): 4.9% (it's probably much, much higher).

    Too bad so many here (and in liberal HQ up at MSNBC in NYC) are so quick to draw inaccurate pictures of MS when they've never even visited the state. But it's fine so long as it appears to reinforce they're elitist views of "fly over country."




    Well this Progressive has spent a lot of time in Mississippi and even had to live there for 6 months when my boyfriend's Navy ship was docked in Pascagoula. And I can tell you it's reputation is deserved. Plus, we get a lot of people from Mississippi who visit New Orleans due to it's proximity and you can spot them a mile away. The people who live on the coast are not quite as bad as they get exposure to alternate lifestyles. This is a blanket generalization of course.

    It's old news, yeah, but the usual "news" coming from there should always be accompanied by this theme:



    and yes, I've spent way too much time there.

    Yes, Republicans still support racial segregation and discrimination. And when you vote for one, even if he/she doesn't personally support racial discrimination, you empower those who do, if Republicans achieve a majority in a legislative body. Because all Republicans are forced to vote the same way, a trait I wish the Democrats would adopt, since not doing so weakens Dems.
