This book promises to reveal how Southern Republicans tried to recreate the Confederacy. Then you find out they were totally unsuccessful in the first couple of chapters. Spoiler: Mississippi went down kicking and screaming. If you didn't already...
es for 138 years, how they have used the winner-take-all provision of the Electoral College to nullify black votes for president, and how through legal and social pressures they have created reservations for blacks similar to the ones created in another century for Native Americans. Mississippi has more black elected officials than any other state, but none of them are empowered to govern beyond their reservations.Dixie's Dirty Secret exposes the longest running political gambit in American history and paints a frightful picture of the future of the United States if the current trend in politics continues. How did the populist Democratic Party lose its blue collar and Southern base? How did the elitist, stiff-upper-lip Republican Party become a vehicle for racism and right-wing political anarchy?"Mississippians will recognize many names in this book, its governors, politicians and media figures. It's bound to spark outrage, and dispute, but more importantly, it should raise serious questions about the "white speak" that masquerades as political discourse both locally and nationally, and its effect on elections and public policy. While inferences and suppositions can be disputed, Dickerson's extensive research (the ample notes and references section is itself fascinating) provides facts beyond dispute."—Jim Ewing, Clarion-LedgerAt one time the Democratic Party was the political arm of the segregationist South and the Republican Party was the party of Abraham Lincoln (as far as race relations were concerned). That all changed on a fateful day in 1960 when Democratic Party candidate John F. Kennedy telephoned Coretta King to offer his condolences that her husband Martin Luther King Jr. had been arrested for parading without a permit. That telephone call set in motion a decades-long transformation of the Democratic Party into a liberal, pro-civil rights party and the transformation of the Republication Party into a right-wing, anti-civil rights party that embraced the social values of the Old Confederacy.When Dixie's Dirty Secret was first published in 1998 it was the first book to expose the super-secret Mississippi Sovereignty Commission and the involvement of the government, the news media, and organized crime in combating the civil rights movement. This newly published edition, with nearly 20 years of new information, is a revised, greatly expanded analysis of that era.About the AuthorJournalist and independent scholar James L.
