It has been pointed out on this site many times, and I imagine OP knows, that the parties switched ideals in regard to that and many other things. Even pretending to not know that is a little silly, at this point.

""The Democrats are the party of the Ku Klux Klan,” Cruz (R-Tex.) said in an interview on Fox News on Wednesday. “You look at the most racist — you look at the Dixiecrats, they were Democrats who imposed segregation, imposed Jim Crow laws, who founded the Klan. The Klan was founded by a great many Democrats.”"
Also, DEMOCRATS were in charge of the cities, towns, and police departments that jailed, fire-hosed, and turned attack dogs loose on Blacks in the 1960's.

You do know that Robert Byrd denounced the KKK and did a whole lot of things to make up for his past, right?
He was even honored by the NAACP.
Why do you keep trying to spread easily debunked lies?
Is it because you're just a liar and, lies are all that you have? I bet that's it.

Remember when democrat controlled states threatened to leave the union so they could keep their cheap laborers?
California last week.
The tragedy of the Republican Party is that, when Democrats began to do the right thing, key figures in the GOP welcomed Thurmond into its fold and began to craft not just a “Southern strategy” but a politics of reaction. There were plenty of Republicans who resisted the trend at the time, and there have been plenty of Republicans since (notably former Congressman Jack Kemp and former Secretary of State Colin Powell) who have sought to broaden the party’s focus and appeal.
But as one of the great Republican advocates of civil rights, John Lindsay, noted when he left the GOP in 1971, “Today the Republican Party has moved so far from what I perceive as necessary policies… that I can no longer try to work within it.”
