Comparing the sources here I think is important too. One is ABC News, the other is a fashion magazine that I've never seen before, that appears to for some reason be dabbling into politics.

Sure dems were the proponents of the kkk according to disinformation by conservatives to deflect the the ugliness among them.
Reading comprehension issue?
Did you know that the Democratic Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, founded the KKK, and fought against every major civil rights act in U.S. history?
We can go back to the actual historical record from the Joint Select Committee in 1872... here you go.
Report of the Joint Select Committee
So nice try but no dice.
If you would like to read up on it, try Google.
There you will find, quite heavily documented, some facts.
The first grand wizard of the KKK was honored at the 1868 Democratic National Convention, no Democrats voted for the 14th Amendment to grant citizenship to former slaves and, to this day, the party website ignores those decades of racism.
An estimated 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites died at the end of KKK ropes from 1882 to 1964.
The Klan terrorized black Americans through murders and public floggings; relief was granted only if individuals promised not to vote for Republican tickets, and violation of this oath was punishable by death, Since the Klan targeted Republicans in general, it did not limit its violence simply to black Republicans; white Republicans were also included.
The current version of the "History" page on the DNC's party website lists a number of accomplishments from 1792, 1798, 1800, 1808, 1812, 1816, 1824 and 1828, including its 1832 nomination of Andrew Jackson for president. It follows up with a name change, and the establishment of the Democratic National Committee, but then leaps over the Civil War and all of its issues to talk about the end of the 19th Century, William Jennings Bryan and women's suffrage.
Let's not EVEN get into the real topic here, women's suffrage.
Republicans began working on getting women to vote in 1854. It was an uphill battle against the Democrats, who would have nothing to do with it.
Democrat's War on Women finally ended in 1920 with the ratification of the 19th Amendment. With 18% of Republicans against, 41% of Democrats against.
On Nov. 2, 1920, more than 8 million women voted in a presidential election for the first time. Republican Warren G. Harding won a massive victory over Democrat James M. Cox. Harding won 37 of 48 states. Harding's 26.2 percentage-point victory is one of the largest margin wins in presidential elections. Women expressed their support by overwhelmingly supporting Harding.
So it is truly ironic that Democrats are now wearing white to support women's suffrage.
Almost as ironic as your post.
Now we will start working on the Democrat's War on Babies.

As silly as the nazi comparisons are, you’ve missed the point.
It’s not the white that’s the issue, it’s the style, your quote even says it..
Nice try but, ATS loves a bit of hyped up false outrage.
