poor blacks against poor white has given away to a new alliance of minorities and working people as a result tbe state which gave 87 of its vote to barry goldwater in 1964 and 63 to george wallace in j96h has now elected william winter a racial rrvtderate as its new governor black people who voted in large numbers played a crucial role in electing winter the sand candidate who was defeated twit before because of hi so-called race-mixing views but even more important blacks scored truly impressive gams in the mississippi stat legislature bei this year's election the house of representatives
