Democrats’ Hoodwinking of Blacks

Ask any black person which political party has been black people’s political ally. With near unanimity, blacks would answer the Democratic Party. Asked which political party has been hostile to blacks, they’d say the Republican Party with similar unanimity. For better answers, check out Prager University’s five-minute clip “The Inconvenient Truth About the Democratic Party,” by Carol Swain, professor of political science at Vanderbilt University.

Since its founding in the late 1820s, the Democratic Party has defended slavery, started the Civil War and opposed Reconstruction. The Democratic Party imposed segregation. Its members engaged in the lynchings of blacks and opposed the civil rights acts of the 1950s and ’60s. During Reconstruction, hundreds of black men were elected to Southern state legislatures as Republicans, and 22 black Republicans served in the U.S. Congress by 1900. The Democratic Party did not elect a black man to Congress until 1935.

      You are back where you WERE before the Election.

      Complaining about the MAN.

    Not excusing the Democrats but you cannot hoodwink those who reject being hoodwinked. The same applies to the Liberals and NDP in Canada and many ethnic groups. If you cannot or refuse to see that you are being hoodwinked, then you deserve it.

      Some times people enjoy being hoodwinked.
      Obviously the Liberals do.
