Research is your friend. Yesterday's racist Democrats are today's racists Democrats. The 'they became republican' argument is so easily refuted by facts.

Contrary to popular misconception, the parties never "switched" on racism.

Following the epic civil rights struggles of the 1960s, the South began a major demographic shift from Democratic to Republican dominance. Many believe that this shift was motivated mainly by racism. While it is certainly true that many Southern racists abandoned the Democratic Party over its new support for racial equality and integration, the notion that they would flock to the Republican Party -- which was a century ahead of the Democrats on those issues -- makes no sense whatsoever.

Yet virtually every liberal, when pressed on the matter, will inevitably claim that the parties "switched," and most racist Democrats became Republicans! In their minds, this historical ju jitsu maneuver apparently transfers all the past sins of the Democrats (slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow laws, etc.) onto the Republicans and all the past virtues of the Republicans (e.g., ending slavery) onto the Democrats! That's quite a feat!

President Franklin Roosevelt's electoral body in 1945 had included a diverse, in fact contradictory, set of elements — both conservatives and liberals, northern and southern Democrats and Republicans. By 1948, however, the civil rights issue revealed the real philosophical differences between northern and southern Democrats as never before. The move of Southern states from solidly Democrat to solidly Republican began to take place. In that environment, the Dixiecrats and the “Southern Strategy” was born.

No, it's not. Stop trying.

Right... The "Southern Strategy" MUST be why Martin Luther King (and his outspoken Grand daughter) was a Conservative Republican.

it's time for KKK to retire! Enough of hate and violence. They've done enough ! Surprisingly, they are still headquartered around the country..I thought about relocating to Mount Holly until I did my research with the KKK being headquarters for this hate group . I wouldn't want them to be my neighbor! Our President is not a monkey! He's a good man, stop hating!! Cowards ! Expresses the life and legacy of Klan members ! They must learn social reform ! Starting with mindless tea party !
