Digby and I have been talking a lot in the last few days about the obvious fact that there are a bunch of working class white folks out there who don't have any problem with socialism for them--just as long as it doesn't go tothose people. That's something you're still not supposed to say out loud in polite society, even though it's obvious as a matter of simple historical record: FDR and his policies were wildly popular among Southern whites and similar demographics until the Civil Rights movement, at which point an abrupt political about-face began in which all such social spending was suddenly outrageous.
