How to create a GRASS ROOTS Political Movement
(Step One) Inherit a vast oil fortune.
And to my son I bequeath my vast oil fortune.
Great, just as long as it doesn't interfere with my drinking and whoring.
(Step Two) Finance regional gatherings of closet racists.

Dad, there's something you ought to know....
