    Southern Democrats: 7–87 (7–93%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–10 (0–100%)
    Northern Democrats: 145–9 (94–6%)
    Northern Republicans: 138–24 (85–15%)
    The Senate version:
    Southern Democrats: 1–20 (5–95%) (only Ralph Yarborough of Texas voted in favor)
    Southern Republicans: 0–1 (0–100%) (John Tower of Texas)
    Northern Democrats: 45–1 (98–2%) (only Robert Byrd of West Virginia voted against)
    Northern Republicans: 27–5 (84–16%)

    Jus' say'in.
    So, who did you steal that info from?

    Read this from a Black author....

    "Blacks have always been conservative or, more accurately, traditionalists. This DNA was embedded in us from the depths of our African ancestry."

    snip

    When you talk about specific issues that are important to conservatives—abortion, welfare, homosexual entitlements, etc.—Blacks are overwhelmingly supportive. But as soon as you put the label conservative with it, the dynamic changes.

    Meanings are in people, not in words. Currently, America and specifically the Black community have allowed liberalism and political correctness to run amuck.

    We must breathe new life into the dormancy of our culture. We must water the DNA that is begging to raise its head once more. For the first time in the history of Africa, homosexuality is sweeping across the continent, babies are being born outside of marriage, and they are sending their elderly parents to nursing homes.

    I am one who makes a living based on my knowledge and understanding of the use of words and language. Before White and Black conservatives address the Black community on any issues, they first must define their terms of engagement. Bush 43 was called conservative, but spent money like a drunken sailor. Republicans leaders of Congress call themselves fiscally conservative, but constantly support deficit spending.

    So, one needs to define what the word conservative means and why it is relevant to a person’s everyday life. Why Black conservatives, especially those with a heart, have not done this is truly a mystery.

    - See more at: The Heart of the Black Conservative (Yes, we have one) | BlackPressUSA
    You do realize that this is one person's opinion, correct?

    And to say that black people being traditionalists is due to our African ancestry is extremely idiotic, there have been black people all over the political spectrum.
    "And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."

    No, you've proven that racism also existed in the North, a fact that no one disputed.

    You've shifted over to, "um...um...um...Democrats then aren't the same as Democrats now!"
    They aren't, and that statement was in response another poster dredging up the "party of the klan" narrative. Reading. It's fundermental.

    What part don't you get the bill could not get passed with both the House and Senate under Democrat majority? It was the leadership in the minority party, the Republicans that would not waiver on key issues that must be included in the civil rights bill to make it worthy and not some paper tiger that some Democrats proposed to get Southern Democrats on board . History records Johnson going to the Senate and raising hell and telling his party to stop the filibustering and pass the legislation. There was a hell of a battle in Congress to get the bill passed. And it was a Republican that pretty much authored the final bill that was signed into law. It's getting old to see such revisionism of something that just happened 50 years ago. I blame our public school system for that one.

    What part of not being able to understand that your whitewashed version of history is not the complete truth and that the closer truth is that members of the GOP were more opposed to the 1964 CRA than were Dems? Is your viewpoint so entrenched that it becomes a B&W issue were Dems are bad and GOP are good and that no allowance is made to understand that within the GOP there were racists....and that NOW, the PRESENT, the Southern GOP ideology is nothing more than a sanitized version of Jim Crow Southerners?

    Atwater: You start out in 1954 by saying, "Nigger, nigger, nigger." By 1968 you can't say "nigger" — that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states' rights and all that stuff. You're getting so abstract now [that] you're talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you're talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites. And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I'm not saying that. But I'm saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me — because obviously sitting around saying, "We want to cut this," is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than "Nigger, nigger."[41]

    Ironic that she is taking the position in Louisiana that she OPPOSES Obama.
