    Too bad there aren't more african americans who think like that.
     
  3. Like Charles Barkley said, "Poor black people have been voting Democrat for 60 years and they are still poor."

  5. If they all thought like him, then maybe MLK jrs dream would become a reality.


    Maybe.
     
  6. The best thing African Americans can do is vote against the party who represents the south


    Slavery -South

    Confederate states of America-South

    KKK-South

    Jim Crow-South

    There were 130 House votes against the civil rights act-97 from the South

    There were 27 Senate votes against the civil rights act-25 from the South

  7. You fail to recognize that from 1866 to 1920, the Republican party dominated the South. During the period, the Republican party supported the rights of blacks to vote and be elected to office, supported policies to improve education for blacks, and opposed the KKK.

    You are aware, of course, that the KKK is presently a Right Wing extremist group, right? And that the voting on the civil rights bill, which became an act in 1964, was correlated to geography. The South largely opposed it while everyone else voted in support of it. You may recall that the Republicans subsequently embraced the "Southern Strategy" which strategically exploited white resentment in the South:

  9. Of course they know it. Notice how his timeline stops at 1920. Nine years BEFORE the Great Depression.

    :D How desperate is that?:D
     
  10. The poor and uneducated are easily manipulated, whether they be black or white, republican or democrat. Both parties count on it.
