       ‘In the 1980 campaign, Ronald Reagan extolled the virtues of
      states’ rights to an audience in Philadelphia, Miss., where civil rights
      activists had famously been killed by racist whites in 1964. To many, this
      combination of text and context covertly signaled Reagan’s opposition to the
      Civil Rights Act. Reagan also made racial appeals once in office: He used an
      African American Cadillac-driving “welfare queen” as Exhibit A in his case
      against liberal social welfare programs.’http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/02/15/AR2008021502895.html
