I have been corresponding with a person that is a school teacher of math and science tonight and I think that I may have been too harsh. I must say that I do have a tendency to be myself with whomever I speak and sometimes that makes me seem somewhat too aggressive. I want everyone to know that I am nothing but a sweet, sweet guy.
That said, our conversation was about Democrats being the party of racism and that the Ku Klux Klan was part and parcel of the Democrat Party. I seriously did not know there was a single soul on Earth that did not know this. Really. So......
Everyone should know that the Republican Party was FORMED to fight the Democrat Party's slavery platform. You cannot debate that, it is only known all the way throughout every history class ever taught in the United States. So, let's do the Google, okay? (All of these links lead to The Google search pages so you can find your own source. Please do not trust me at all, I am an evil rightwing wingnut.)

Okay, that gets us up to the Civil War. We all know that was not really about slavery, but about states rights, but let's assume that slavery was the whole issue. Republican President Abraham Lincoln, blah, blah, blah.......
April 16, 1862. Lincoln abolished slavery in DC. 99% of Republicans FOR, 83% of Democrats AGAINST.
Keep rolling, I think that we can skip through for a while, because again, everyone knows that it was the Republican Party that ended slavery totally, and the Democrat Party that started passing "Jim Crow Laws."
Just a little aside, in 1868, guess what the Democrat's political slogan was?
October 22, 1868. James Hinds.
February 3, 1870. Fifteenth Amendment. Reps FOR 98%, Dems AGAINST 97%.

1900, Theodore Roosevelt outlawed segregation in New York schools.

February 26, 2004. Corrine Brown. You white folks all look alike to me.
We have come a very long way in our country's history, DESPITE all of the efforts to thwart our progress by Democrats. Believe that the Democrat Party is NOT the party of racism, but you might as well be believing in the Tooth Fairy.
Please take the time to comment.
Still more Democrat racism.
