By the way, Ned, are you collecting paychecks for posting from Wesley Donehue? http://www.bluestemprairie.com/bluestempra…
And yes, white supremacists, as Pepper mentioned near the start of this thread, often do divide persons they see as non-whites into differing categories of non-whiteness, and like to play the old divide-and-conquer games, just like the Brahmins did with the non-Brahmins and the British Raj would do later. (Why else would such terms as "quadroon" and "octoroon" be a part of the language?)
As for the collective groups that make up the CoCC, it's been known for decades that they are little more than rebranded White Citizens' Councils and "Sovereignty Commissions". The KKK may be more famous, but these groups, which the late great Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall tagged as "the Uptown Klan", were and are the real powers behind institutionalized racism. These groups traditionally were and still are composed of the city fathers and the political, financial and social elites, as opposed to the KKK, the bulk of whose members generally are somewhat lower down the social and power scale.
