How is that wrong? How did the democrats become the black and colored mans party??? I thought you people respected other cultures.

White culture beliefs in limited government as a majority and the republicans are just better for that. Not that I agree with it.

It was by default when Lyndon Johnson did this....

Lyndon Baines Johnson 1963... "These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something (read that WELFARE), just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference... I'll have them n*gg**s voting Democratic for the next two hundred years".

So the GOP got the white people by default.

It actually goes back to Grant ,Lee and Lincoln and The Reconstruction era. As far as the 60's go if JFK would not have been killed the movement would not have proceeded as he did not feel it was the place of the government to force integration, that came from LBJ.

Do you have a link to the quote? The reason I asked is because there is no proof he ever said anything like that.

Google it...there are all kinds of links, with the qualifier after the quote that it was "said in a conversation with two democrat senators." But if you asked me, and nobody did, it sounds exactly like something Lyndon Baines Johnson would have said to two of his cronies. No question. Johnson was one of those good ole boy democrats as a senator that didn't like black people for anything other than their VOTES.

I did Google it but like you all I found was innuendo. I wouldn't be surprised if he said it but I was just looking for proof.

Over time issues that divide the U. S. electorate change. One thing that has not changed is that the Republican Party has always been dominated by the business community. When the Republican Party was formed in 1854 the issue that most concerned American businessmen, and particularly manufacturers was the tariff.

European factories usually produced better goods than American factories, at cheaper prices, even when the cost of shipping the goods across the Atlantic Ocean was factored in. Without tariff protection many American factory owners would go out of business. Their employees would become unemployed.

On the other hand, Southern cotton and tobacco producers produced the best cotton and tobacco in the world at the cheapest prices. Most of these producers, of course, were slave owners. Southern cotton and tobacco producers did not need tariff protection. In addition, they resented paying more for manufactured goods, as they had to do with tariffs on the goods.

One of the constituencies of the Republican Party in 1854, of course, was the constituency of abolitionists. These opposed slavery for humanitarian reasons. They were not terribly concerned with economic issues.

However, abolition was in the economic interest of the Northern factory owners. If the slaves were freed without compensation, this would reduce the wealth of the Southern cotton and tobacco producers. Reducing their wealth would reduce their political ability to reduce or end tariffs.

Another factor was that if the slaves were freed, many would move north and apply for jobs in the factories. This would enable the factory owners to reduce wages.

When the North won the Civil War the abolitionists became Radical Republicans. These wanted the Negroes to be given equal rights. The Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments were passed to extend citizenship rights and voting rights to the freed slaves.

However, in time most Northern whites lost interest in racial equality. Before the Civil War abolition had been an unpopular issue even in the North.

After the end of Reconstruction in 1876 blacks in the South were reduced to the status of second class citizens. Few whites in the North cared. The Democrat Party became the party of Southern whites.

The tariff was still a divisive issue. Northern manufacturers still felt the need for tariff protection. Southerners still produced the best cotton and tobacco in the world, even when the cotton and tobacco was farmed by free Negroes.

During the fourth quarter of the nineteenth century the United States became more industrialized.

American businessmen still liked to get business subsidies from the government. Although factory workers sometimes tried to form unions, these were unpopular with most voters, who were still self employed.

From the presidential election of 1876 to the beginning of the Great Depression after the Stock Market Crash of 1929 it can probably be said that the Republican Party stood for mercantilism. They wanted the government to help businessmen. The Democratic Party stood for laissez faire. They wanted the government to intervene little in the economy.

When the Socialist Party of America was formed in 1901 it had aspirations of becoming becoming a major party equivalent to the British Labour Party, the Socialist parties of France and Italy, and the Social Democratic parties of Germany and Scandinavia. It never succeeded.

During the Great Depression the Democratic Party began to adopt some of the more moderate stands of the Socialist Party of America.

At this point the Democratic Party was liberal, and on the left; the Republican Party was conservative, and on the right. Nevertheless, the Democratic Party continued to dominate what was called "the Solid South." Although most Southern whites still opposed equal rights for Negroes, most approved of the mildly socialist policies of Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal.

During the 1930's, the 1940's, and the 1950's a "liberal" almost by definition was someone who favored government intervention in the economy to reduce economic inequality.

During the 1960's the definition of liberal extended to support of racial equality. This was when Southern whites switched parties. In the North the civil rights movement, the War in Vietnam, and the Watergate Scandal pushed most educated whites into the Democratic Party. In addition, a higher percentage of blacks began to vote. The vast majority of black voters voted Democratic.

Nevertheless, the movement of educated Northern whites and blacks into the Democratic Party has not offset the movement of Southern whites into the Republican Party, so the Republican Party has dominated the United States since the 1970's.

There is no mention in this article of the black ghetto riots that tore Northern cities from 1964 to 1968, no mention that these riots ended abruptly with the inauguration of President Nixon in 1969, no mention of the fact that the crime rate in the United States doubled from 1960 to 1970, and no mention of the fact that blacks have always had a crime rate that is about 7.5 times the white rate.

The author of the article suffers from the delusion that blacks are unoffending victims of irrational color prejudice. Until the leaders of the Democratic Party learn that lower income whites have legitimate reasons for their enduring hostility to blacks the Republican Party will continue to dominate the United States.

Your grandchildren will pretend to ignore your racism, and be thankful they don't think like you.

What you said: White culture beliefs in limited government as a majority and the republicans are just better for that.

But what you meant to say was: White culture beliefs in limited government except in people's bedrooms and in their personal lives, and because women are stupid and need their bodies monitored because they can't do it themselves, as a majority and the republicans are just better for that because they feel they are the party of morals and have a need to force what they imagine are their Christian beliefs on the rest of the country no matter what it takes.

There, I fixed it for you..

So you think that kind of activity is admirable among our black citizenry? Figures.
Look at you sounding like a damn Nazi. Hey have you ever smoked a cigarette? You should try one.
