- Southern strategy: In American politics, the Southern strategy refers to the Republican Party strategy of winning elections in Southern states by exploiting anti-African American racism and fears of lawlessness among Southern white voters and appealing to fears of growing federal power in social and economic matters (generally lumped under the concept of states' rights)
Innocent killed for crimes, especially if they are of a minority person, is normal in the Southern United States of America. The top leadership has no shame and the same morality as feudal lords who rape their slaves for fun and profit(i.e. extra slave labor . Hell, they even made that thier party platform. Only a Southerner Feudal Lord Party (In this case Arizona, whoes Republican candidate turned out to be an actual Nazi!) could possibly have the balls, in today's modern world, to actually protect rapist babies before they are even conceived AND literally put it on the Party Platform ... and then shut-up so the women wouldn't find out!
1. "Graves' brother, Arthur Curry Jr., has always insisted that Graves was home with him the night of the murders. "There is no justice, especially here in Texas. Had he done that and I knew it, I could not have hid the truth knowing that someone's family was in torture," says Curry. Graves has not been given an execution date. His lawyer is seeking a new trial."
2. "The Death Penalty Information Center keeps an "Innocence List" which names incarcerated people who have been exonerated since 1973. There are 119 to date. The criteria for inclusion on the list are: "In order to be included on the list, defendants must have been convicted and sentenced to death, and subsequently either: a) their conviction was overturned and they were acquitted at a re-trial, or all charges were dismissed; or b) they were given an absolute pardon by the governor based on new evidence of innocence."
Notice that To Kill A Mocking Bird is a fiction book ABOUT the South well AFTER the civil war. Notice where the black people are. In the deep South the fear of the black man (from old white women) STILL exists. Seeing blacks as lower than them to a point where there is no shame in calling people 'other black' and 'our blacks' ('our blacks', I think, was famously used by Ann Coulter). To Kill A Mocking Bird is a MUST READ to understand the South, for outsiders.
Excellent example of Southern "Justice" (NON-Fiction):
“Anatomy of Injustice”: Death in a small town
Note: In To Kill A Mocking Bird, at the end, the all-white jury ruled to have the black guy killed. Notice Mitt Romney's strategy is to blame everything on the black guy EXACTLY like To Kill A Mocking Bird... with an almost all white male election base which is so outdated they have resorted to election fraud rather than be compassionate.
There was even a book by John Grisham covering this Southern Tradition in his own way in A Time To Kill
Interesting fact: Many members of the Nazi's found a home in the confederate South. We know very little of their activities as many were weapons scientists in Germany and since WW2 the United States has something called a "National Security Act/Bill". Whose sole purpose seems to be to increase militarism.
