America continues be in a state of civil war.During the 1861-65 Civil War, the slaveholding Confederacy, formed by 13 secessionist states, was defeated by 19 northern states and then occupied by the federal government for a dozen years. Yet after "Reconstruction" ended in 1877, the South vigorously practiced systemic racism for almost a century, until the U.S. Congress enacted the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act, mainly with the support of northern Democrats. The Republicans thereby became the party of the South, and the Democrats the party of the Northeast and Pacific West, with the Midwest and Western mountain states the swing regions. Of the 26 senators representing the 13 former Confederate states today, 21 are Republicans and five are Democrats. Of the 38 senators now representing the 19 northern states of 1861, 27 are Democrats and nine are Republicans (two Independents, Bernie Sanders and Angus King, caucus with the Democrats). The Democrats and Republicans are parties not just of different cultures and regions, but also of different economies.With non-Hispanic whites expected to become a minority of the total population by around 2045, America's ongoing civil war could worsen.
