"Every black was once a republican."<quoted text>
Republicans didn't leave the blacks. The blacks left them when a democrat persuaded them to go on a diffferent kind of plantation.
Considering blacks were at a disadvantage in the job market, it's hard to blame them.
But don't blame Republicans. They still want them to have the opportunities they were denied to live free and independently of democrat dependency.
Every black was once a republican. The first blacks elected into office until 1935 were republicans.
Can't brag like that when it comes to democrats.
