You do know that Jackie Robinson's middle name is "Roosevelt" and he was named after the REPUBLICAN Pres. Teddy Roosevelt? And that he, himself, was a Republican!
And that the Jackie Robinson Center was built in 1974, two years AFTER he died? Isn't it odd that Liberal blacks will gather around a famous black person and then claim that that black person was a Liberal Democrat.
Yes, And both Dr. Martin Luther King Sr. and Jr. were REPUBLICANs too!!!
Yes, he was a great hunter and a taxidermist too. When he returned from a bear hunt without a bear, someone sent him a toy stuffed bear. And that is how we have the Teddy Bear today!!!<quoted text>
Well, Teddy Roosevelt, the great trust-buster, the great environmentalist, the president who passed the Pure Food and Drug Act and the Meat Inspection Act, was hardly a CONSERVATIVE Republican.
I wonder how many polar bears he shot?
Oh, I do know he was no conservative. But when he ran as a Bull Moose, he took the election away from Taft so a really Progressive, Woodrow Wilson, won the election. Yep, Wilson won with just 41.8% of the popular vote!!!
