America’s Racist BeltPosted: 2011/09/12
Politics Buzz: This map shows the most racist parts of America. Only 22% of counties voted more Republican this year than 2004. These are the people that bucked the general trend and actually went the other way, i.e., Democrats and moderates switching to the Republican side. Race is the only reason that makes sense for a Democrat to switch sides this election cycle. Keep this in mind when you plan your next vacation: America’s “racist belt” stretches through the whitest parts of the South and up the Appalachian Mountains.
