Or, you can go ahead and find it.
This is why it is important for you to read links before you go and call them "inaccurate":...many states included in the vote for the 1964 civil rights act were not even states during the civil war era.
Were Republicans really the party of civil rights in the 1960s? | Harry J Enten | Comment is free | The Guardian
Hey! I went and actually looked at the source:In fact, 90% of members of Congress from states (or territories) that were part of the Union voted in favor of the act, while less than 10% of members of Congress from the old Confederate states voted for it.
What do you know? 13 Confederate states. 116 votes out of those votes, 14 were in favor of the CRA'64. That's ~12% of the total Southern congressional voting power voting in favor of the CRA'64. Again, how are the numbers wrong? A ~2% different? Lol. Semantics.South Carolina: 5 votes. 5 Nays. All 5 Democrats.
Mississippi: 5 votes. 5 Nays. All 5 Democrats
Alabama: 8 votes. 8 nays. All 8 Democrats.
Florida: 12 votes. 1 yea,[ Democrat. 11 nays, 2 Republican, 9 Democrats.
Georgia: 10 votes. 1 yea, Democrat. 9 nays, Democrats.
Louisiana: 8 votes. 8 nays. All 8 Democrat.
Texas: 22 votes. 4 yea, all Democrat[/B]. 17 nays, 17 Democrats, 1 Republican.
Virginia: 10 votes. All nays, 2 Republicans 8 Democrats.
Arkansas: 4 votes. All nays. All Democrat.
North Carolina: 7 votes. All nays. All Democrat.
Tennessee: 10 votes. 2 yea, Democrats. 8 nay, 3 Republican, 5 Democrat.
Missouri: 10 votes. 6 yea, 5 democrats, 1 Republican. 4 nay, 1 Republican, 3 Democrats.
Kentucky: 5 votes. 5 nays, 3 Democrats, 2 Republicans.
This has already been acknowledged. Try and keep up. What has been pointed out is that Republicans, even as a minority in the South, voted AGAINST the CRA'64. That is a fact.Further, There were very few southern Republicans in either house, both of which were controlled by Democrats.
Brilliant stroke of thought there! Hey! I got one! If what you're saying is true, then is it not a fact that more Democrats voted in favor of the CRA'64?And there were less southern Republicans that voted against it than there were northern Democrats that voted against it.
Wait... we can't have that though! Shhhhh.
None of them would have gotten passed without Democrats. Again, do you find this to be a false statement? If so, how?Even further, the Republican party was the main driver behind every civil rights related legislation up to that date.
Lmao, yeah, try and come up with something coherent next time.The last point is...there was a Full Democrat super majority in govt at the time, House, Senate, Presidency....you cannot relegate all Republican opposition to any Democrat measure to simple racism while ignoring simple political opposition for political purposes.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
It's quite clear that racism was MORE entrenched in the south than anywhere else, but it's a fallacy to use that as a defense of the Democratic Party. Racism (and racist Democrats) did exist elsewhere throughout the country, and while overall...both Parties supported the civil rights act of 1964, that can't be said of any of the previous attempts at civil rights legislation. The Republicans are clearly the majority factor in every attempt at achieving civil rights legislation from it's very beginning right up to 1964. So, it's a fallacy to claim the party that had historically opposed (including the President) civil rights up to that one vote was the driving factor, or more a factor in support of civil rights is revisionist nonsense.
