Chapter 6: Resolving the Puzzles I. Glaser argued that while the South has undergone dramatic changes. The politics of the south still continues to resolve around race especially at the Congressional level. II. Both Democratic and Republican strategists use racial politics to varying degrees. As a result, the interplay of Political campaigns is noticeably different for areas with a heavily localized African-American population than an area with small- localized areas. III. When blacks are more numerous in a district: A. Republicans are more likely to bring up race issues, under the theory that this will evoke group or racial conflict and rally white to the Republicans cause. B. Ex. Miss 4, Ala. 3, Va. 5. In these elections Republicans focused on the Confederate flag issue, Grove City, and the Voting Rights Act C. Democrats tend to focus on boosting black participation in these elections even if it means risking white votes. D. Ex. Wayne Dowdy, Miss 4. He spent resources and time to activate the black electorate IV. In lesser densely black population areas, Republican and Democratic racial politics still exist but in a different form. A. Republican: B. Ex. Tex 1, Miss 5 C. In both of these campaigns Ed Hargett and Tom Anderson tried to get the black vote to sleep in by discrediting the Democratic opponent or by confusing the electorate. D. Democrats: i. Gene Taylor by contrast spent very little money, and instead spent most of his funds trying to create a bi-racial coalition.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
