Does the African-American population know that during and around the 1830's that the entire South was Democratic and that it supported slavery
threatening succession if denied it?
Does the African-American population know that the Democrats were the wealthy plantation owning slave owners that kept them suffering for
decades until the Civil War?
Do African-Americans know that their "hero" besides "Martin Luthor", Abraham Lincoln was a Republican and the FIRST Republican?
Do African Americans know that after the civil war during the post-war period they were under constant attack by organazations such as the KKK
that were approved by the local Democrats?
Do African-Americans know that Lincoln's Vice President after his death was a Democrat only because the losing parties nominee became Vice
President and President if the President in office died? He was a southerner and was later impeached because he tried to take away the civil rights of
Blacks in the south during reconstruction to try and incorporate the South into the US faster and is widely known to be one of the worst US presidents
among Woodrow Wilson (who was a Democrat as well and was a fantatic about the movie "Birth of a Nation" which was extremely untrue in it's facts
claiming the KKK as hereos and who also wrote an extremely racist book "A History of the American People").
Do African-Americans know that General Grant was a northerner and tried to crush the Confederacy as fast as possible with great strategy that
ended the war quite early? As a Republican he became President in 1869 and during Reconstruction he occupied the south with the Army and imposed free
elections for blacks while at the same time hunting down and pacifying the KKK. This caused Republicans to be voted into power in the South by the
majority of black voters since there was such a high density of them in the South. This furthered the fight against racism and lynch mobs and the
Throughout the early 1900's to the 1960's to present, the Democrats slowly increased power in the south and eventually we ended up with a
resurgence of the KKK along with mob lynchings, Jim Crow laws, segregation everywhere especially in schools, and massive civil strife and disobedience
causing the National Guard to come in. I think I even remember a DEMOCRAT in the 1960's that became Governor in Alabama which I believe shouted a
popular phrase "SEGREGATION NOW, SEGREGATION IN THE FUTURE, AND SEGREGATION FOREVER!". I believe he got a lot of applause.
So my question is this? Why do African-Americans support the Democrats so blindly? Is it because recently they JUST had to vote in one of them
even though the party he represented wanted to keep them slaves til this very day? Why is the south still completely all BLUE? Is it because the
Democrats realized they could come into power just by changing some of their racist believes and catering to blacks with social programs? IF IT WASN'T
FOR REPUBLICANS BLACKS WOULD STILL BE SLAVES! Or is that to bold of a statement? I'm just wondering why a people would constantly vote for a party
that for hundreds of years pretty much wanted to put their designer shoes on the African-American communities faces? Would you vote for a party that
tradionally wanted you to have no rights and had to be forced to give that up to limited rights and then thought maybe if they catored to you with
social programs they could get the votes they needed? I'm just wondering WHY?
