Quote Bush_Wacker:Hardly. Not all whites were bigoted racists who demanded the government enforce Jim Crow segregation.
It's not about minority rule, it's about equality. If we lived in a majority rules democracy then there would still be white only water fountains.
Majorities can't always be trusted... but that doesn't mean we should permit minorities to either have the power to rule... or for ultra tiny minorities to obstruct sensible legislation. We need a system of majority rule with sensible protections for legitimate minority rights... and by minority I mean of all sorts... racial, regional, religious, even the rich... etc.
