    Thurmond and Wallace Will Be Smiling in 2009

Between 1933 and 1968,this country was preoccupied with economics, war, internationalism and civil rights. Internationalism and civil rights became a couple after World War II and continued until 1968 when internationalism filed for a divorce for irreconcilable differences.

In the meantime, a third-party movement was afoot to change the tenor and tone of presidential politics. In 1948,the States’ Rights Party or “Dixiecrats” would nominate Strom Thurmond as its presidential candidate to oppose Pres. Harry Truman, who had proposed outlawing Jim Crow, lynching and the poll tax.

George Wallace sought to become the governor of Alabama in 1958. He had to unseat Gov. John Patterson. This was a tall order. At the end of the day, Wallace lost, but he vowed never to be “outniggered” again. The KKK had supported Patterson. Many members of the NAACP had supported Wallace.

Four years later, Wallace would become governor of Alabama and his political career would never look back. Wallace learned a valuable lesson. Politics, theatrics and the race card constitute a winning combination. He would use this formula to block the entry of Vivian Malone and James Hood into the University of Alabama.

With the South becoming an 800-pound gorilla in the Electoral College, Wallace would put his show on the road in 1968. His third-party presidential candidacy in 1968 would land Richard Nixon in the White House. Nixon won 43.4 percent of the popular vote, while Hubert Humphrey garnered 42.7 percent of the popular vote. Wallace collected 13.5 percent of the popular vote.

While Wallace may have lost the White House, he resurrected an age-old political vernacular. Race was back in national politics after a hiatus of 35 years. No presidential candidate, today, can win the White House without engaging in “nigger politics.” Until the Establishment struck Wallace down in 1972 for pursuing third-party politics, he was flying to the White House.

With Wallace in a wheelchair, Nixon would recapture the White House after having conducted a law and-order campaign against Blacks and using the executive branch of government to oppose school busing. Gov. Spiro Agnew of Maryland had served as his vice president and attack dog.

The 12 members of the Congressional Black Caucus refused to attend Nixon’s State of the Union address after holding a special congressional hearing concerning the killing of Black Panther members Fred Hampton and Mark Clark. They were the victims of state-sponsored terrorism in Chicago in 1970.

Jimmy Carter would follow Nixon into the White House as an elected president. He would become the first president from the South since Zachary Taylor. As a southerner, the country had presumed that Carter was a racist. Moreover, Carter identified himself as a “cracker.” Lester Maddox unsuccessfully tried to persuade white voters that Carter was two-faced.

Ronald Reagan left no doubt as to his political propensity. He launched his presidential campaign in Philadelphia, Miss. The conclusion to be reached was that Reagan was for states’ rights. His 1980 campaign mirrored the 1948 presidential campaign of Strom Thurmond, who had won four southern states. This is important math for the Electoral College.

The use of a “southern strategy” to win the White House was not lost on Bush 41.The worst nightmare for a white man is a “big, Black buck” ravaging his “white petunia.” William Horton was this big, Black buck. None of his family nor friends, however, had ever referred to him as “Willie.”

Horton had kidnapped a white couple, stabbed the boyfriend and repeatedly raped his girlfriend while out on a prison furlough pass in Massachusetts. Gov. Mike Dukakis of Massachusetts would lose his presidential bid. Bush 41 made him pay for Horton’s sins.

In 1992, Bill Clinton left his presidential campaign and supervised the state-sponsored execution of Ricky Rector, a lobotomized, Black man. Clinton was governor of Arkansas. This perceived stance against Blacks, plus the third-party candidacy of Ross Perot put Clinton over the hump. He also called for repressive welfare and penal laws.

Like Justice Clarence Thomas, Bush 43 hypocritically and vociferously attacked affirmative action. They were both beneficiaries of affirmative action. Like his father, Bush 43 promised to appoint racist justices to the Supreme Court to place a check on abortion and affirmative action. Nixon had started this theme.

He had never heard of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 in 2000. Black history was not his strong suit. Bush also embraced the bigoted teachings of James Dobson, Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell. Bob Jones University would be in good hands with Bush at the helm.

If Barack Obama can “outnigger” John McCain in 2008,he will get a four-year lease on the White House in 2009. No president, after LBJ, has won the White House without being perceived as embracing states’ rights. Obama must do more than talk down to Black people. He must put us down to win in 2008.

The New Yorker magazine has upped the ante. Its current cover exploits racial and religious stereotypes under the guise of political satire. Obama and his wife, Michelle, are depicted as terrorists. McCain must remain low-key since his family earned its fortune off the backs of enslaved Africans in Mississippi. The magazine will become McCain’s “plumbers.”

States’ rights and federalism are a testy couple under the U.S. Constitution. The Articles of Confederation embodied states’ rights. The Iroquois Confederacy introduced federalism into American government under the Constitution. There has always been a tension between federalism and states’ rights.

On the question of race, this country exclusively embraces states’ rights. Despite the Fourteenth Amendment, “Negro” citizenship is still limited to the states. See Slaughterhouse cases. This explains the legal contradiction between Michael Vick and Sean Bell.

States’-righters refrain from using universal language. Their language is selective and they target specific groups. Although “deadbeat dads” permeate every ethnic group, Obama sought to target Black men without mentioning the Depression-type unemployment rate of Black males, their felony conviction rate and the preference for hiring a white felon over a Black, male, college graduate.

No white presidential candidate will denounce a bigoted, white evangelist out of deference to the First Amendment. Obama is supposed to be a constitutional law expert, but he went after Min. Louis Farrakhan and Rev. Jeremiah Wright as though he believes that Dred Scott is still in effect.

“Change,” as Obama’s campaign theme, has as much political currency as Bush 41’s campaign promise: “Read my lips: No new taxes!” The more things change, the more things remain the same. In 2009, Thurmond and Wallace will get the last laughs from their graves. Gravesites still navigate American politics.

Before Obama starts engaging in racial profiling, he should read the report of the Kerner Commission, headed by an Illinois governor, Otto Kerner. It reads, in part, “What white Americans can never fully understand—but what the Negro can never forget—is that white society is deeply implicated in the ghetto. White institutions maintain it and white society condones it. ”Thus, “our Nation is moving towards two societies—one Black, one white—separate and unequal.”

The Report of the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders was published in March 1968. Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968. The day before his assassination, Dr. King said, “We will get to the Promised Land.” The White House was in his rearview mirror. “Land” is a synonym for freedom. Revisit “40 acres and a mule.”
