In 1957 it was Republican President Eisenhower who authored the 1957 Civil Rights Bill,...(that became the 1964 Civil Rights bill), Eisenhower hoping to repair the damage done to blacks and their civil rights by the out dated demokkkRratic party since 1892 till present. The bill was initially blocked by Senate demokkkrats, voted against by (D)Senator JFK and Al Gore, Sr.<quoted text>
RealDave no matter how you try to rearrange the chairs the Facts are 21 Democrats voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act while only 6 Republicans!! 90% of Republicans supported Black Legislation while 80% opposed it!! The Civil Rights Act of 64 was passed by Republicans!!
The DNA of the democratic party is inbred with Jim Crow hate, envy, ignorance and racism.
The GOP doesn't have blatant organized anti-black racism on public record or in the national archives.
