Jesse Helms, hero? (or: And they wonder why people think "conservatives" are racist)

Mark Noonan:

Liberals hated this man - but he was, by all accounts, a very kind person who treated everyone with the respect they were due as human beings…and when slavery reared its ugly head in Africa, it wasn’t the “civil rights” movement which led the fight against it, but Senator Jesse Helms.
Ok, keep that quote in mind as you read this.

Helms was a trashy man who made it to the Senate.
