No, no, it’s not about race at all…

Senator Robert Byrd (living mummy, WVA) is supposed to be a Democrat. But with views like this, is it any wonder why some people, both Democrat and Republican, just don’t like President Obama?

He’s just not in The Club…

Byrd was also opposed to Truman desegregating the military in the 1940s. In a 1944 letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo:

I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side… Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.
