Lots of comments on lots of newspaper sites attempting to remind us that "Democrats controlled NC for more than a century," or similar sentiments.
We need to remind these misguided souls that, until about 1970 or so, most southern Democrats, including those in NC, were segregationists. And we need to make sure to point out that today's GOP are the ideological offspring of those segregationists. If the GOP suddenly embraced the idea of equality for all Americans, these segregationists would find another party home.
