    Did the Democratic party really create Jim Crow laws and fight against Civil Rights? Was racism and bigotry part of the Democratic party's platform? Were Jim Crow laws part of a Democratic party strategy?


    The old GOP died a slow and painful death during the years of the Johnson (LBJ) presidency. Before conservatives threw out liberals, the GOP had strong liberal values. But in the 1970s and into the '80s and '90s, the GOP knowing it had long ago lost the African American community, turned to the tried and true tactics of the conservative South (where Jim Crow laws were enacted): race baiting with dog whistles.

    Where exactly were Jim Crows laws enacted by local officials? Who fought against the Civil Rights movement in 20th century America? Who? Where were they from? Where did they end up by the 1970s?


    "By the '70s and into the '80s and '90s, the Democratic Party solidified its gains in the African American community, and we Republicans did not effectively reach out," Mehlman says in his prepared text. "Some Republicans gave up on winning the African American vote, looking the other way or trying to benefit politically from racial polarization. I am here today as the Republican chairman to tell you we were wrong."

    RNC Chief to Say It Was 'Wrong' to Exploit Racial Conflict for Votes


    "Some Republicans gave up on winning the African-American vote, looking the other way or trying to benefit politically from racial polarization," said Mr. Mehlman. "I am here today as the Republican chairman to tell you we were wrong."

    An Empty Apology


    Why should an African-American vote Republican?

    “You really don’t have a reason to, to be honest — we haven’t done a very good job of really giving you one. True? True,”

    “…We have lost sight of the historic, integral link between the party and African-Americans,” Steele said. “This party was co-founded by blacks, among them Frederick Douglass. The Republican Party had a hand in forming the NAACP, and yet we have mistreated that relationship. People don’t walk away from parties, Their parties walk away from them.

    “For the last 40-plus years we had a ‘Southern Strategy’ that alienated many minority voters by focusing on the white male vote in the South. Well, guess what happened in 1992, folks, ‘Bubba’ went back home to the Democratic Party and voted for Bill Clinton.”


    RNC Chair Michael Steele Confesses to Race-Based Southern Strategy



    GOP Apologizes for Southern Strategy

    Let us be honest and truthful. Let us face hatred and fear, bigotry and anger with courage. We do this, and we can have reasonable conversations on race and move forward.

    Jim Crow laws were local and not federal so there is a difference..Jim Crow laws were before the GOP threw away it's liberal/progressive mattress tags...And the south voted for Rockefeller since he didn't want to vote for the Equal Rights amendment..First time a GOP nominee carried the South,,but not the last...But the dims of denial will spill their guts proclaiming there was no demographic switch by the political parties, yet it is there in black and white..

    The Ds are happy crippling the vast majority of the black community by using welfare to destroy the black family as far as possible. Turning the Civil Rights movement into useful idiot organizers also worked like a charm.

    Can you name a few of these proposed laws? Or can you name the legislators and politicians who have proposed Jim Crow type laws to be used against whites?

    The use of welfare is on an individual basis and not a consensus for electing anyone..The welfare state is alive and well no matter which party is in power....You my friend have a fallacy of a statement..
