Democrats & Blacks

I landed on "The Colbet Report" last night, so I decided to watch what they were showing. It was comedian Tim Meadows walking through Harlem posing as a Black Republican named P. K. Winsome asking people if they were going to vote in last Tuesdays election. And if so, would they vote Republican. A resounding "No" was the general consensus. I know they were making fun of Black Republicans, but he brought up some good points that some who were being interviewed were shocked to hear. Like how it was Democrats that started the KKK. And it was Democrats who were sicking police dogs on protesters in the 60's. It's sad more people don't this stuff. Ever since FDR was elected President, Black people in this country have been brainwashed. And Democrats in Washington love this. Think about it. Democrats have been "fighting" for them for years, and where are they? Are they equal with Whites? A Black man and a White man have the exact same job. Who do you think makes more? So, really, what have the Democrats done for Black people except train them to think that it's been Republicans who've been oppressing them and for many years had them believing that it was the Government's job to take care of them?

i love this silly argument and read it a lot on conservative blogs. you have the parties right... but the people were switched dude.

Dems of the very early 60s were CONSERVATIVE. And southern.

What does that make them today? Republicans.

You can spin it anyway you want, the fact remains that Democrats have worked hard to keep minorities down so they can keep control.

I'am hoping Mr. Steele will take the job of RNC chair. It will be great to have a true conservative in charge and the fact he is African American will go a long way to illustrate your point of this article.

African American? John, don't tell me you're going all PC wussy on me.

Well; "black" did not sound as respectful as AM. Thats why I used it. My friends say that AF is not as PC but just a more respectful racial title. But what do they know; they are black.(joke) for the humor impaired; ie Za.

There's an easier way to spin it - in terms of liberalism. Racial emancipation is a liberal act; and Fordee has it right, the Republicans were fairly liberal at the time.
