Haley Barbour Friend: Yazoo City Was That Bad

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour poked a hornet's nest recently when he suggested that his hometown, Yazoo City, wasn't such a bad place during the civil rights years in the 1960s.

Barbour, a national Republican leader who campaigned in Oklahoma for Gov.-elect Mary Fallin, was wrong, of course. But Barbour's remarks, made in The Weekly Standard, are one more sign of Barbour's unreconstructed view of the South, a view at odds with the reality of the Jim Crow era.

Fortunately, other Yazoo City folks have a more clear-eyed memory of the past. Read it here: Yazoo City was that bad.
