On the tails of an election with the subject of race at the forefront, Wrong on Race uncovers a hidden past that many Democrats would rather see swept under the carpet. Ranging from the founding of the Republic through to today, it rectifies the unfair perceptions of America's two national parties. While Nixon's infamous "Southern Strategy" is constantly referenced in the media, less well remembered are Woodrow Wilson's segregation of the entire Federal civil service; FDR's appointment of a member of the KKK to the Supreme Court; John F. Kennedy's apathy towards civil rights legislation; and the ascension of Robert Byrd, who is current President pro tempore of the Senate, third in line in the presidential line of succession, and a former member of the KKK.

// John F. Kennedy's apathy towards civil rights legislation; ...\\
Ho hum, more disinformation crud from a neocon author. Yup, integrating the US Secret Service, the Washington Redskins, the American college system, starting with Ole Miss [James Meredith, guarded by US Marshals, as the FBI bugged out, of course, while Gen. Edwin Walker led the militia in firing upon those US Marshals], and then there was affirmative action, conveniently forgotten about.
I seriously doubt this neocon author knows anything of modern American history, but excels at slinging the bull!
[Now a real item about racism: BBC/Fake News recently did a story on the Japanese internment of WWII, where two-thirds of the Japanese were citizens and had their land and business confiscated. George Takei did a wonderful interview, but the BBC concluded with the remarks that it was racism which was behind it, completely ignoring the glaring fact of who PROFITED from the confiscation of Japanese-American lands, which was prime wine-growing lands, et cetera? In fact, everyone who has ever written about their internment has conveniently neglect this most obvious of points?! Fake News yesterday, Fake News today!
The architects behind that internment were supposed to have been Earl Warren, later Supreme Court Justice, and John J. McCloy - - both of them would sit on the Warren Commission to whitewash or cover up the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Wonder who much money those two died with - - as someone profited from all that stolen Japanese-American land?]
