It appears the ""Blacks have no memory about who really gave them freedom. They have again been sold out by one of their own. Once in Africa and now by Obama in the US. Got any spare chains???

Yeah and you have to back to 1864 to find the last time that Republicans supported blacks. Nice try, but try being honest instead of trying to make people believe something about today that you know isn't true. Funny how you like to selectively use history for your own benefit. But, then again, that's what makes you a Republican.

Was Lincoln for central banks or government expansion? No. Can you tell me what party filibustered for 83 days to keep black americans segrigated from white Americans. O it was Robert byrd and the democrat party still in power today. Most Democrats from the Southern states opposed the bill and led an unsuccessful 83-day filibuster, including Senators Albert Gore, Sr.(D-TN) and J. William Fulbright (D-AR), as well as Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, who personally filibustered for 14 hours straight. The same people who still to this day darken the door of the democrat party. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_Rights_Act ......Educate yourself

By the way those 1964 and 65 civil rights bills and voting bills were all opposed by Democrats. Many of whom are still in power today or have sired those in power today.

Facts are stubborn things. Your only option is to open your mind to your own bigotry or put your fingers in your ears and repeat the lies you've been told your whole life.

Just ask yourself, why are African Americans perpetrated as generational victims in the Democrat party?

Keep up with the times, Sad. That was 50 years ago. I don't support the southern racist Democrat/Dixiecrat party of those years. Like I said, the south has always been racist right up to today. Their the same people. They used to be Democrats and when FDR started the new deal, the southern Dems didn't like it (you know, because it helped people) and they spent the next 30-40 years turning Republican. Look at an election map from the 30's to the 70s and 80s and you'll see those states go from voting only Democratic to voting almost exclusively Republican.

Again, I wouldn't be for those southern Dems. They were and are racists. And, you are completely wrong that MANY of those Dems who voted against the Civil Rights bills are in power today. I'm not sure that any of them are, but if there are, there are very, very few. I'll challenge you to name 15 of them, if you say there are many of them still in office.

From Wikipedia:

The South becomes Republican

For nearly a century after Reconstruction, the white South identified with the Democratic Party. The Democrats' lock on power was so strong the region was called the Solid South. Before 1948, southern Democrats believed that their party, with its respect for states' rights and appreciation of traditional southern values, was the defender of the southern way of life. Southern Democrats warned against aggressive designs on the part of Northern liberals and Republicans and civil rights activists whom they denounced as "outside agitators."

The adoption of the strong civil rights plank by the 1948 convention and the integration of the armed forces by President Harry S. Truman's Executive Order 9981, which provided for equal treatment and opportunity for African-American servicemen, drove a wedge between the northern and southern branches of the party.

With the presidency of John F. Kennedy the Democratic Party began to embrace the civil rights movement, and its lock on the South was irretrievably broken. Upon signing the Civil Rights Act of 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson prophesied, "We have lost the South for a generation."[46]

Integration and the civil rights movement caused enormous controversy in the white South, with many attacking it as a violation of states' rights. When segregation was outlawed by court order and by the Civil Rights acts of 1964 and 1965, a die-hard element resisted integration, led by Democratic governors Orval Faubus of Arkansas, Lester Maddox of Georgia, and especially George Wallace of Alabama. These populist governors appealed to a less-educated, blue-collar electorate that on economic grounds favored the Democratic Party, but opposed desegregation. After 1965 most Southerners accepted integration (with the exception of public schools).

Believing themselves betrayed by the Democratic Party, traditional white southerners joined the new middle-class and the Northern transplants in moving toward the Republican Party. Meanwhile, newly enfranchised Black voters began supporting Democratic candidates at the 80-90-percent levels, producing Democratic leaders such as Julian Bond and John Lewis of Georgia, and Barbara Jordan of Texas. Just as Martin Luther King had promised, integration had brought about a new day in Southern politics. The Republican Party's southern strategy further alienated black voters from the party.

You guys have obviously don't know that the two parties changed what they stood for in the 20th century. Look it up. Study some history and then you'll be enlightened. I've done that. You obviously haven't and that's why I understand this and you don't.

You do understand that Wiki is not fact checked and anyone with an agenda can re-edit the page with truth or lies as they wish, right?

These days history is branded to whichever cause you wish to attach yourself to. Be willing to read other views and let them challenge any long held "truth" you believe. Play attorney and prove yourside against the other without the influence of Bill Maher, Jesse Jackson, Jon Stewart, etc.

With an open mind listen to men like:

Gods you are silly. If there was a party shift, and it was more slight than popularity believed, it uniformly happened in the late 1700's and early 1800's not 1964. And pal you are supporting disguised racism and anti American intent through your inability to recognize it in your party leadership. If you give a man a fish he eats for a day, if you teach a man to fish he eats for a lifetime. This simple concept if applied to the lowered standerds and expectations of minorities put in place in our education system by Democrats is why we have people like you pal. You spout without understanding. It also happens to be the biggest single reason for holding minorities in poverty. Lower education and expectations breeds desperation.
