    So, after reading the article, I STILL don't understand what the new GOP Southern strategy is. Did I miss something?

    I liked Reagan but he opened his campaign in Philadelphia MS, the town in which the movie Mississippi Burning is set. Now, why would a California governor start his campaign in the city best known for killing three student civil rights workers?

    :lol::lol: Blacks in this country have been a major voting block for the democrat party ever since Hoover--clear back in the 1930's. Why would anything change now?---:cuckoo:

    While the southern part of this country--is predominately registered democrats--they typically vote conservatively.

    So what's your point?

    Michael Steele is making a point that the GOP has historically been the party of white Southerners. I believe he'd like to change that.

    Republicans accept reality that blacks love Democrats!

    That's news?

    the fact that the head of the RNC publicly acknowledges the "southern strategy" long used by the GOP IS news.
