PRAGER UNIVERSITY: Why Did the Democratic South Become Republican?

"We teach what isn’t taught." - Dennis Prager

This semester of Prager University is presented by:  Carol Swain

"The Democratic Party was the party of slavery and 'Jim Crow.'  And the Republican Party was the party of emancipation and racial integration...The myth of the 'Southern Strategy' is just the Democrat's excuse for losing the South., and yet another way to smear Republicans with the label 'racists.'  Don't buy it." – C.S.

"(The) story of the two parties switching identities is a myth.  In fact, it's three myths wrapped into one false narrative.  Myth #1:  In order to be competitive in the South, Republicans started to pander to white racists in the 1960's...Myth #2:   Southern Democrats, angry with the Civil Rights Act of 1964, switched parties...Myth #3:  Since the implementation of the 'Southern Strategy,' the Republicans have dominated the South." – C.S.
