THEODORE GILMORE BILBO

Theodore Gilmore Bilbo was an American politician who twice served as governor of Mississippi and later was elected a U.S. Senator . A master of filibuster and scathing rhetoric, a rough-and-tumble fighter in debate, he made his name a synonym for white supremacy. Like many Southern Democrats, Bilbo believed that black people were inferior; he defended segregation, and was a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Wikipedia*
