    You have no way of knowing whether the Democrats who controlled Oklahoma in the 1920's would have pushed for civil rights in the 1940's or opposed it, so you're drawing an arbitrary line. Not every Democrat was some kind of proto-dixiecrat. Not even in the south.
    Uh, go look up the history of Democrats in Okalahoma.
    Make everything from toy guns that spark, to flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark. Itís easy to see without looking too far, that not much is really sacred.

    Oklahoma Democrats were more like Texas Democrats (pseudo-civil rights hero Lyndon Johnson and Sam Rayburn) than Strom Thurmond. None of them signed the "southern manifesto" for instance, and their congressional delegation was less hostile to civil rights than most southern states.
