Until yesterday, I thought dude was already dead. Anyway, I was never a Jesse Helms fan, whose conservatism was racialized and exclusive.

"He was old-school conservative, with that racist outlook. Not my guy", said Unc.More about Jesse Helms from the LA Times' Top of the Ticket blog and another perspective from Jack & Jill Politics.
