So if South Carolina called northerners carpetbaggers during Reconstruction after the Civil War; why then would they vote in a 1st generation "opportunist" Indian American, as Governor, who is an obvious beneficiary of the Civil Rights Fights of the 60s which were long overdue for Blacks primarily.
Why would Louisiana, a state with long history of racism next door to the birth of civil rights movement-MS, elect another 1st gen Indian American as governor, yet never consider a black or hispanic all those years; groups who have had a long history of oppression within these states.
They are both Republicans. They both conveniently converted to Christianity from their parents Indian faiths. They have gotten where they are thanks to historic Liberal agendas in America, but yet Obama is anything but an American or Christian in the eyes of Tea Partiers- a GOP wing. Any Opinions on any of the above appreciated.

OP, are you trying to use today's new vocabulary word?! LOL
Maybe this Indian-American candidate won because he was the best candidate for the job, or he managed to win over enough of the voting population in order to get elected?! Maybe a bunch of Indian Americans wanted to be "a part of history?!" LOL You know how that goes, right?! :o)
We all know why Obama got elected...because too many people bought the "snake oil" he was selling and now they're trying to back-peddle their way out, saying they "never expected anything more," and "Obama is like every other politician." LOL...trying to save face can be really entertaining to watch! :o)
