The stereotype is that Republicans allowed “Jim Crow” laws while Democrats were against them. Perhaps not. The Buzz Blog notes this:

Republican Mike Coan co-sponosored legislation repealing Georgia’s Jim Crow laws – something Georgia’s Democrats never quite got around to (the 2005 session of the Georgia Legislature is the first time since Reconstruction that the GOP has had a majority in both Houses). Today, Governor Sonny Perdue (R) will sign the bill and Jim Crow will officially be dead.

That’s a long time to let those things languish on the law books, and Buzz also mentions that these law in Georgia were enacted and enforced by Democrats. Thanks to Republicans, they’re gone.
