No, you need to educate yourself....fully. Over the last half of the 20th century, those segregationist democrats all migrated into the Republican party. Your snapshot in time fails to consider the Dixiecrats and the Southern Strategy of Richard Nixon. I am constantly amazed at the lengths to which conservatives will go to delude themselves. Barmderk was absolutely right. Conservative Christians used to be Democrats, but when democrats started to favor civil rights, they eventually turned into Republicans.
There may be no single, simple explanation why Mitt Romney lost the election this week -- but clearly the perception that the GOP is anti-Hispanic didn't help. For years, I've been warning my fellow conservatives that their position on immigration would be costly, not just politically but for the economy as well.

The election results definitively proved the former. The Hispanic vote was decisive in denying Romney a win in Colorado, Nevada, Florida and possibly Virginia. Without winning more Hispanic votes, the Republican Party may be doomed to permanent minority status.

Hispanics are the fastest growing population in the country....
