"The Democrat Race Lie": Has the Democratic Party always been a party of good?
Basically, I'm getting beat up pretty good about LBJ and how he was a racist (even though he signed the Civil Rights Act) and FDR's internment camps (for the Japanese-Americans in World War II).
It's the usual "all Democrats are liars" stuff from the uncle.
But in a way, it's a good question.
How can the Democrats lay claim to being the party of civil rights, women's rights and all that good stuff for over 200 years? Did they really do that? Or is it just hyperbole?
I have a Facebook argument awaiting me. I await your answers and assistance!
My friend also used this article as proof that Democrats were anti-civil rights until 1996:
