Dukes of Hazzard/Demographics: What kind of thinking was going on when they made "Dukes of Hazzard" anyway?

"Here's the pitch boss: A couple of big, aryan-type bo-hunk huckleberries drive around an all-white Southern locale in a car with a big Confederate flag painted on top. That's right, boss. D-U-K-E, as in David Duke. Oh, and if they venture outside their county, there's a sherriff -- a black sherriff -- who appears to do nothing but sit by the side of the road, waiting to bust their nuts if the Duke boys should venture by. Of course, the boys always outrun or outsmart him. Whaddya think?"

Well, it was a successful show in its time.
