Depends which populism we're talking about --- there were populists even in
the South who supported and interracial class alliance --- Even Tom WAatson
who later became a vicious racist started out totally different ---

I was referring to post 1896 southern populists who opted (with a few
exceptions -- see 1899 in Wilminston) for disenfranchisement --

That's the crucial story told (I still believe it's accurate even if old)
in THE STRANGE CAREER OF JIM CROW by Woodward ---
