    I hear of Liberal Democrats championing the causes of racial and gender equality in America today, while admirable, they have ignored their own history. Now, for a little history lesson. Let's do a little research shall we? Let us see who has been more detrimental to the causes of equality. Pay attention students, there will be a quiz at the end of this essay!

    During the 1860s, Southern Democrats continually advocated the use of slavery. It took a Republican to slay these racial demons with the 13th Amendment. A major advocate of this being Frederick Douglass, a black Republican abolitionist, diplomat and former slave from Maryland.

    During Antebellum, racial equality was continually hampered even after the 13th Amendment's passage; by Democrats who were taking ever increasing majorities in local, state and federal offices, especially during the 1880's. This eventually led to the instatement the Jim Crow laws. In 1875, attempts were made by Republicans to break Jim Crow, it was however, thwarted by Democrats. It was during this time the Democratic Party gave birth to the KKK.

    For nearly a century, Jim Crow ruled over the land with an iron fist. Nary a black man anywhere could be treated equally, because of the racial hatred of the Democratic Party. These laws were finally ended by the Supreme Court Decision of 1954, Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. Ironically, in 1963, it was Democrats who launched major opposition to the Equal Pay Act, which effectively ended the gender pay disparity in the workplace.

    In 1964, Democrats were once again fighting to stop racial equality in the states. They fought tooth and nail against the Civil Rights act of 1964, with a former Klansman leading the charge. As a Democratic Senator Richard Russell from Georgia put it: "We will resist to the bitter end any measure or any movement which would have a tendency to bring about social equality and intermingling and amalgamation of the races in our (Southern) states."

    Then there was the famous Democratic Senator Strom Thurmond from South Carolina who was even moreso candid than Russell in his opposition, stating that "This so-called Civil Rights Proposals, which the President has sent to Capitol Hill for enactment into law, are unconstitutional, unnecessary, unwise and extend beyond the realm of reason. This is the worst civil-rights package ever presented to the Congress and is reminiscent of the Reconstruction proposals and actions of the radical Republican Congress."

    For 57 days they filibustered the bill, until Senator Everett Dirksen (R-IL) shamed them into relenting. The Bill was signed into law by Lyndon Johnson in the Summer of 1964. The next year, the same Congress passed the Voting Rights Act.

    Not long after that, Southern Democrats began defecting to the Republican Party, after the Democratic Party had shifted its focus towards its more moderate voting bloc to the north, and thusly polluting it for generations to come with their racial pragmatism.

    Where were Democrats? I thought they claimed to be the party of equality? Yet history is riddled with examples of their racial hatred towards African Americans. It's sad in a way to think how they have warped and twisted their minds into believing the current platforms in place today, kept ignorant of the history that precedes the Democratic Party.

    Here's my question, which party has stood for equality over the past 150 years? How does this meld with the current platforms Liberal Democrats advocate today? I leave that for you to decide.

    LOL,

    Blacks are never blamed for their violence or inability to join civilization. The democrats of the south before 1960 were right to want separation. The truth is blacks were better off as they had 1# A strong family structure, 2# local economy within the black community that hired blacks, 3# had some of the best music ever made.

    What do blacks have today? Welfare, violence and are brainwashed into voting for a party. lol You can't make this shit up!!! It is a cycle of dependency and idiocy.

    What should we of done? For one we should of gave them equal rights within our society, of course, but we should of treated them equal and expected more out of them. We made a mistake of treating them as the victim and driving the message into their minds that we're just wrong. Big mistake. We really needed to bring them into our society thinking that they need to meet a high standard and as our equal.

    Do you happen to be black? I know plenty of black people in my neck of the woods that would tell these Democrats to go fuck themselves.

    Even today it is the Democrat party that continually pushes the idea that blacks and other minorities cannot make it through life on their own, and that they need "help" from government to get jobs, get education, etc. No such "help" is offered to Caucasians.

    Some things never change. :cuckoo:

    Democrats have had a shameful record vis-a-vis racism until fifty or sixty years ago, but Liberals have consistently led the fight against racism. Conservatives, however are always in the vanguard defending racism and inequality. Would you care to make a distinction, as you post clearly does not, between political parties and political ideologies?

    If you could give examples of stalwart Conservatives who fought racism, I'd be very curious to see such a list. For you see, political parties change their ideologies over time while the foundational principles of political ideology remain steadfast. No Conservative ever advocated for minority rights. No Conservative ever advocated for expanded rights for women or children or homosexuals or African Americans or workers or the environment.

    Over the years, various Republicans and Democrats have provided such leadership, but they were nowhere near what the contemporary Conservative recognizes as his own.

    You ask which party has stood for equality over the past 150 years? I ask you what political ideology has stood for equality? Here are some things to contemplate: What is the Conservative stance on marriage equality? What is the Conservative stance on pay equity? What is the Conservative stance on worker's rights? What is the Conservative stance on immigration? And how do those various stances serve equality for minorities?

    I recently learned the NRA was founded to stop the democrat KKK from murdering black people & Jews. That is why the NRA was founded. To protect africans & Jews from the Democrat founded group - Ku Klux Klan. Amazing, isn't it?

    The Dems in the lead and the repubs in solid support passed Civil Rights and Voting Rights on geographical lines, not party. The great majority of repub a nd dem Senators and Representatives in the north and west voted for and the southern dems and repubs voted almost 100% against.

    Since then, the minorities have trended for the democratic party in overwhelming numbers because of people like buckeye, jtpr312, lonestar, and others on the board who are two-faced in their talk and their actions.

    Hilarious.

    One wonders if moderators quickly moving fact-based challenges to nutballsim into the forums margins have the integrity to whisk this into the rubber room thread, or if they share racist residuals - er, properly Republican instincts - into the satire thread.

    There is not a single HONEST human with a competent education in US history and an IQ above 60 who does not know that well above 90% of the reactionary rebel scum populating the KKK and blighting the pre-1968 Democrat Party converted to Republican Nutballism in the period 1968 and that by 1980 the most popular media description of these unreconstructed rebel white trash was "Reagan Republican".

    Nice try, though. The failure of public education makes bogusness like your post believable to cesspool America. Relatively more highly developed nutballs can continue their evolution out of the neocon-fake-conservative big-government-shitpool by doing their own research to validate that reality does not always conform to pedantic, aka, literal, reports.
