Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: December of 2002
Categories: Racism & Trent Lott
Trent Lott said we would have avoided problems if segregationist Strom Thurmond was elected. "I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years, either."
