When the democrats owned slave, it was a world wide accepted practice....and they had been brought up in a society that had slavery.....they didn't necessarily understand better.... The communists groups knocking down the statues of democrat soldiers who fought to keep slaves? Communism also enslaved entire populations...not just the people of one skin color.....and they committed mass murder in the modern world....not 100 years ago..... The communists in Russia murdered 25 million people.....the communists in China murdered 70 million people...the communists in Cambodia, 1/3 of the population....and around the world communists enslaved and murdered in order to spread communism. So who was worse...the democrat slave owners who didn't know any better, or the people today who proudly belong to communist groups and praise mass murderers like the castros, and che...and mao, the mass murderer?
