    If the republican party is 90% white how is that a connection to the KKK? The majority of the KKK during it's high water mark were democrats? Segregationists in the South were democrats. Al Gore's father senator Gore was a democrat segregationist and don't even try to make the argument that he was a secret republican. He was a democrat. Democrat senator Robert Byrd who frequently used the "N" word was a former KKK leader. The KKK threat is gone and who knows why Black people vote for democrats today. Maybe it's the union sub-standard education system and maybe it's left-wing teachers who teach hatred instead of history. Maybe it's the plantation mentality of the democrat party which still pays poverty pimps to keep the plantation in line and maybe it's hateful racism directed at Black people like Dr. Condie Rice and Justice Thomas who escape the plantation.

    The same mentality of authoritarianism and classism and racist exists and thrives in this nation.

    Its proponents merely wear different costumes, now.

    Its pretty amazing to look at all those Americans marching in the street to keep other Americans from voting.

    Its still what the republican party does.

    ID laws

    Felons lists

    Rigged voting machines


    all the shit the republicans still cheer to keep black voters from voting
