Another Bit Of The Ronald Reagan Legacy - The KKK

Reagan was a racist of the worst kind, smiley, folksy & incredibly stupid.  He fit right in with his fellow racists in Philadelphia, MS, home of the murders of three civil rights workers & home of Reagan's state's rights speech to begin his 1980 campaign for the presidency.  & now Haley Barbour's state, Mississippi, is considering honoring a confederate general who was a grand wizard of the ku klux klan by putting his picture on a license plate.  I mean, WTF?  It's the 21st century, I think. This is the sort of thing that makes living in this country more of a battle than I believe I'm willing to fight, particularly when we should be smart enough to leave this sort of shit behind.  Thanks to Alzheimer Ronnie, this sort of think is not only encouraged, it's allowed.
