    You should learn to be more courteous, by the way.
    If you or anyone makes a hack statement that I see, I'll call them on it. You're right about Lincoln suggesting colonization. Your comments as to why were pure hyperpartisanship.

    Nothing in that article contradicts the claim that the Republicans I mentioned were not invited to speak at yesterday's event. All it is is a collection of quotes from black, otherwise unremarkable, Republicans complaining that they were not invited.

    While Thomas is an American success story he is not a Justice in the mold of Earl Warren or Thurgood Marshall that is identifiable with the Civil Rights movement. Or do you believe he should have spoken simply because he is black?

    Would this hypothetical Republican have shown any remorse and changed their views? 54 years passed between Trent Lott voting for Strom Thurmond and his comments that the United States would be better off had he won in 1948, and yet his political views hardly changed. The same cannot be said for Robert Byrd.

    Most historians recognize the difference between northern Democrats and southern Democrats during the Civil Rights era. From my experience the only ones who do not are nothing more than partisan hacks.

    Much like how most Tea Partiers are Republicans that does not mean they get along with what they consider establishment Republicans. Such an adversarial relationship existed between Dixiecrats and northern Democrats. Given the nature of the American political system it was more expedient for Wallace to be a member of one the two major parties than form his own party.

    He won two primaries after he was shot. Those victories were more a sign that voters pitied him than any proof that he was a viable option to win the nomination in 1972.

    This has nothing to do with what I posted. I merely am saying the rhetoric of George Wallace matched that of the Tea Party. Do you deny the Tea Party rails against the federal government, left-wing liberals, the liberal press, and the Supreme Court?

    MLK Jr.'s father was a Republican when it was common for blacks to vote for the Republicans, but the same cannot be said of MLK, Jr. Although he never said which party he voted for his views were more aligned with the Democratic Party. Just for fun, here is an excerpt from a Nobel lecture:
    Another indication that progress is being made was found in the recent presidential election in the United States. The American people revealed great maturity by overwhelmingly rejecting a presidential candidate who had become identified with extremism, racism, and retrogression. The voters of our nation rendered a telling blow to the radical right. They defeated those elements in our society which seek to pit white against Negro and lead the nation down a dangerous Fascist path.
    He was such a great Republican that he openly applauded the loss of conservative Republican Barry Goldwater. Keep on living in that bubble!

    What?? The Democrats were the slave owners, the ones fighting for slavery. Of course whatever Lincoln said had to take that into account. Black people were just not safe during that period, and for over 100 years after.

    If you or anyone makes a hack statement that I see, I'll call them on it. You're right about Lincoln suggesting colonization. Your comments as to why were pure hyperpartisanship.
    So you think I should support those who supported slavery in order not to be 'hyperbipartisan'? I don't think so.

    The Democrats have taken over civil rights as their own despite them being against any Black rights for almost 200 years, and they will always ignore the fact that it was a Democrat who murdered Dr. King.



    Everyone in Congress was invited.. They chose not to attend...

    Then why did he want to create a new place for them instead of having them return to their respective places of origin if that be the case? You do know that most of them were born in the US by then?
