How did the main US political parties swap ends of the political spectrum—with Republicans going from antagonizing white Southerners to the point of secession, to becoming the dominant party in (and voice of) that region?
I found this explainer video from Vox lucid, efficient, and clear—not ax-grindy, as otherwise I wouldn’t share it here. You might enjoy watching it & may learn a few things along the way.
Update: If you watch this—as I think you’d find worthwhile—and find parts of it inaccurate or misleading, please speak up and shed some light instead of turning away or changing the subject. I’m genuinely interested in increasing understanding (my own & others’). TIA.
