    Nah. Fear isnt the right word. That is as wrong as using the word 'homophobe'.

    Its not fear...its anger.

    Thats the truly comical part...the image of Hillary Clinton...HILLARY CLINTON...going on a national stage and discussing the 'war on women'.

    No no no ... think more superficially ... more shallow.

    Heh. Perfectly understandable. May has gone on full stupid, so we have to dismiss her mind at this point.

    Black folks vote with a herd mentality. Are they CAPABLE? Yes. Do they exercise that capacity when it comes to voting? Well...ask a black guy...

    Funny, you won't show any of it though.

    Well, in 1866 (the first civil rights act) The Republicans had 75% of the Senate and 69% of the house and they enacted it over a Democratic presidents Veto.The 1870 enforcement act was due to a 83% Republican Senate and 70% Republican house. Signed into law by Grant (R) no veto.
    The 1871 KKK act, same number, signed into law by a Republican.
    The 1875 Civil rights act, again Republican majorities...signed into law by a republican.
    So you have no voting record of any of them? Hmmm. Interesting. I wonder why? Well, let's see:

    http://www.ohiohistorycentral.org/w/...Party?rec=2121

    By the late 1850s, the Democratic Party was split over the issue of slavery. Northern Democrats generally opposed slavery's expansion while many Southern Democrats believed that slavery should exist across the United States. In the presidential election of 1860, the Democratic Party split in two, with Stephen Douglas running for the Northern Democratic Party, and John C. Breckinridge representing the Southern Democratic Party.
    Alright, so we have that as early as the 1850s, the Democrats had split in two over... well you guessed it race. This lasted until AT LEAST 1860. Strike one for the claim that it was a homogenous movement of anti-civil rights within the Democrats. So now, let's address the fact that Republicans passing civil rights act shall we (well aside from the fact that you have no voting records):

    The Rise and Fall of Jim Crow | PBS

    Jim Crow effectively began after the election of Rutherford B. Hayes. There was a great deal of political confusion as the country continued to recover from the war, and at first, many white Republicans and Democrats were split over the issue of black suffrage. Blacks had begun to participate in politics, holding positions in local government and voting, but during the 1880s, civil rights and political access for blacks were rapidly rescinded, as Northern and Southern politicians agreed that white solidarity on the issue of race was more important than civil rights for blacks.
    Compromise of 1877 - U.S. Presidents - HISTORY.com

    As a bipartisan congressional commission debated over the outcome early in 1877, allies of the Republican Party candidate Rutherford Hayes met in secret with moderate southern Democrats in order to negotiate acceptance of Hayes’ election. The Democrats agreed not to block Hayes’ victory on the condition that Republicans withdraw all federal troops from the South, thus consolidating Democratic control over the region. As a result of the so-called Compromise of 1877 (or Compromise of 1876), Florida, Louisiana and South Carolina became Democratic once again, effectively marking the end of the Reconstruction era.
    Alright, so what do we have. We have, Northern and Southern Democrats being split before the civil war. We have Republicans handing back control to Democrats in the 1870s and we have this:

    THE DEATH OF RECONSTRUCTION - Heather Cox RICHARDSON - Google Books

    Attachment 67175290

    Well! My oh my! We have Northern Democrats courting black voters, we have Southern Democrats attacking them. Hey, the pattern doesn't seem to change much and look, I got all my sourcing. Do you? Well, I know you don't but do you know what all of these things put together mean? They mean that the Democratic Party wasn't the united force you keep presenting it as EVEN in the 19th century.


    All of these introduced and sponsored by republicans. Want me to go on with the rest of them?

    There are more than 6 civil rights related acts they aren't all labeled "Civil Rights Act".
    Please do, they'll display your ignorance on this topic to an even wider extent.

    It's not a racial thing ... it appears 40% or so of everyone still aren't.

    ##Southern Democrats: 1–20 (5–95%) (only Ralph Yarborough of Texas voted in favor)
    ##Southern Republicans: 0–1 (0–100%) (John Tower of Texas)
    And you are going to base your entire argument on ONE Southern Republican senator? Got it!
    Oh no, I based it on the available evidence. There were 11 Republican Congressmen in the South. Guess how they voted?

    Libbos think black folks are stupid, so it's no surprise you believe that.
