    Article recalls how the GOP used to use to dog whistle language to attract racists. Good example is Reagan promising to stop the urban Welfare Queens from collecting multiple welfare checks, and driving new Cadillacs.

    But in 2012, the dog whistle has given away to more direct language, especially in secondary markets with mostly white populations. The author shows proof where Republican candidates are open with their racists remarks...and how they get cheers from the Republicans attending their rallies. But more damaging is the candidates remarks defy reality, and actually spread racism based on these falsehoods.

    Damning evidence that racism works well on Republican voters, and how they love their racist candidates.

    Thanks for linking to the article. It really does appear to be more pronounced than before. And shame on Reagan for that promise, considering that back then whites in rural areas made up the larger percentage of welfare recipients.
