You know, if I must explain this common knowledge stuff to you, you need to hit the books.



Speaking of books, isn't one of the textbook propaganda responses to "get educated?"

Your touting BS.

Because black people don't owe their vote to a party because of something that happened in the 1800's.


Sure I get that but what if you watch the rhetoric going on you would think it was the other way around!

As society changed and political climates changed the two parties switched platforms. I'd almost go as sfar as to say that the party that freed the slaves (Republicans) became the other side (Democrats).


In what way and when did this happen?

"These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness.
Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference...I'll have them ni***rs voting Democratic for the next two hundred years".

The short answer is; the parties evolved.

2nd line


Everything changes what Im trying to figure out is how and when this started to occur?

And the DNC has been quietly furthering that agenda ever since LBJ.

Results speak for themselves.

questionable at best


There was a good discussion about this quote on Reddit's AskHistorians subreddit a few months ago: President LBJ: "I’ll have those n*****s voting Democratic for the next 200 years" - Is this a real quote? The first known record of this quote is from Ronald Kessler's book Inside the White House: The Hidden Lives of the Modern Presidents and the Secrets of the World’s Most Powerful Institution, writing in 1996, a good 30 years after Johnson potentially said those words. Of course, that doesn't disprove anything, just casts reasonable doubt. The comments in the AskHistorians thread confirm that the quote is consistent with Johnson's language in that he often used the n-word. However, the quote is not consistent with the sentiments he conveyed in other private conversations. He truly believed in equal rights, he just lived at a time when someone could say the n-word and no one would think anything of it.


and for the record I correct people who inaccurately attribute trump to the "if I ever run I would run as a republican because they are so dumb" quote

Why?

History and Facts explain it well.

One word: Dixiecrats.

No political system or ideology is static (except Fascism/Trumpism).

But, it's good to see that at least one Trump supporter isn't above asking questions, or educating themselves*.

*Of course, that's a "wind up" - as is the OP's entire topic. Just saying.

Any amount of logic shows the whole "they switched" thing you were taught in high school to be patently false.

Where is this purported freedom of which you speak? Last time I checked, the minority, which constitutes the 99% interestingly enough, are all imprisoned by a slightly upgraded version of slavery.

keep in mind, only 1.4% of white americans owned slaves
30,000 free blacks had 200000 slaves in the south

remember how many northerners died in cival war to free the slaves

most whites came here during the late 1800s, and 1900s. i would think about .000009% of whites in america can be tied to a slave owning family

Who sold the slaves to the whites and blacks? That would be the blacks. Funny how the blacks don't take any responsibility for the black slave traders or the black slave owners. Just evil whitey...

This is a sticking point:

I dont believe feminism is a positive force in the US. 3rd wave feminism is not the womans sufferage movement. they have grown apart and feminism is not the equality of the former daye
Response: You better thank feminism for allowing women to vote, yadda yadda, everyone should be a feminist because without feminism there would be women forced to stay at home barefoot and preggers.

You know...the Republican party was the ones that fought to free the slaves, also opposed the continued civil rights issues the democrats were championing, to include opposing the democrat created kkk and other white power movements.
Response: Things change! The republicans today aren't the same! shesh..stop living in the past.


Progressives...
(incidentally, I know the republican party changed and evolved a lot since the good ole days....and so has feminism...I dislike people having inconsistant views on how things they like are inherently perfect for all times, but things they currently dislike broke somewhere along the line.

Quite simply, because government education tells students that LBJ was responsible for civil rights legislation instead of the real person pushing hard for it, Dwight D. Eisenhower. And they never tell the students that when LBJ was in the Senate he filibustered it.

I thought this thread was gonna be an advertisement for Dinesh D'souza's "Hillary's America." That movie answers the OP's question.

Since no one has mentioned it yet:

Watch "Hillary's America."

It's in theaters now, or you can wait til October when it's released on disc (I think).

**SNIP**

The Republicans and Democrats of the 1800s are totally different from what they are today.

And this is coming from a black man that HATES the Democrats and Republicans.
