Here’s an excerpt on the racial values of Southerners around a century ago from C. Vann Woodward’s book Origins of the New South: 1877-1913:
“Over the years there evolved along with the caste system a generally accepted credo of race among white Southerners. In 1913 Thomas Pearce Bailey, a Southern educator, set down this “racial creed of the Southern people” with such candor and accuracy that it may serve as the best available summary:
1.) “Blood will tell.”
2.) The white race must dominate.
3.) The Teutonic peoples stand for race purity.
4.) The Negro is inferior and will remain so.
5.) “This is a white man’s country.”
6.) No social equality.
7.) No political equality.
8.) In matters of civil rights and legal adjustments give the white man, as opposed to the colored man, the benefit of the doubt; and under no circumstances interfere with the prestige of the white race.
9.) In educational policy let the Negro have the crumbs that fall from the white man’s table.
10.) Let there be such industrial education of the Negro as will best fit him to serve the white man.
11.) Only Southerners understand the Negro question.
12.) Let the South settle the Negro question.
13.) The status of peasantry is all the Negro may hope for, if the races are to live together in peace.
14.) Let the lowest white man count for more than the highest Negro.
15.) The above sentiments indicate the leadings of Providence.”
This isn’t what I was told by modern day Baby Boomer Rainbow Confederates. It also seems to be inconsistent with the eternal principles of True Conservatism which was the deracinated abstract ideology of classical liberalism that was at the heart of the American Founding.
