Robert S. Davis,
My southern blue collar father said that he never voted for the party but only for the man. Most of his life he voted for Democrats but in his last years he voted all Republican. He always voted for the biggest bigots running, even if only by party association, Dad told me (seriously) that he was unaware of any intelligent black person and that all women should be homemakers and raising babies unless they were too ugly to find husbands. Today millions of Americans feel as he did an, although even to themselves they deny their unreasonable they deny their unreasonable prejudices. They, vote that their fears and hatreds, even against the best interest of themselves and their families, in the privacy of voting booths. To change the world for the better, we must first change hearts and minds.
