Rice was a Democrat until 1982 when she changed her political affiliation to Republican after growing averse to former President Jimmy Carter's foreign policy.[9] She also cited influence from her father, John Wesley, in this decision, who himself switched from Democrat to Republican after being denied voting registration by the Democratic registrar. In her words to the 2000 Republican National Convention, "My father joined our party because the Democrats in Jim Crow Alabama of 1952 would not register him to vote. The Republicans did."[

The Jim Crowe Democrats of the post-Civil War South, have all become Republicans. They all left the party after Kennedy/Johnson.

Why else do you think the Deep South votes overwhelmingly Republican nowadays? Because the Republican Party is now the racist party.
