    The mission of the National Black Republican Association (NBRA) is to be a resource for the black community on Republican ideals and promote the traditional values of the black community which are the core values of the Republican Party: strong families, faith in God, personal responsibility, quality education, and equal opportunities for all.

    GOAL: The goal of the NBRA is to return black Americans to their Republican Party roots by enlightening them about how Republicans fought for their freedom and civil rights, and are now fighting for their educational and economic advancement.

    At the National Black Republican's website you can learn about Obama's Blind Spot on Race and Character (and that of the Democratic Party), in an article by Francis Rice - a lawyer and retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, and the chairman of the National Black Republican Association:

    Obama, following in the footsteps of his white ancestors, is also part of the Democratic Party that: (1) fought to keep blacks in slavery; (2) started the Ku Klux Klan to lynch and terrorize Republicans--black and white; (3) passed the discriminatory Black Codes and Jim Crow laws; (4) fought every piece of civil rights legislation from the 1860's to the 1960's; and (5) attacked Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other civil rights protesters with skin-burning fire hoses and vicious dogs.

    While hiding the racist past of the Democratic Party, Obama refuses to give credit to the Republican Party that: (1) started in 1854 as the anti-slavery party and fought to free blacks from slavery; (2) amended the Constitution to grant blacks freedom, citizenship and the right to vote; (3) started the NAACP to stop the Democrats from lynching blacks; (4) passed the civil rights laws of the 1860's that were overturned by the Democrats when they took over Congress in 1892; (5) founded the HBCUs; (6) started affirmative action enforcement in 1969 to help blacks get jobs and contracts based on merit; and (7) fought the Democrats for over six decades until Republicans finally achieved passage of the civil rights laws of the 1950's and 1960's under the leadership of Republican Senator Everett Dirksen of Illinois.

    I've been accused of being a racist on this and other boards... which I always found quite odd as I was married to a woman of another race, and I've ALWAYS called out pictures like those and statements that were overtly racist in nature. Go figure. Maybe it's because I'm a Republican and a fiscal conservative, and we all KNOW that equals racist... right?

    The suspense is killing us (not really) … the answer is?

    Everybody knows that there are black Republicans. What's your point?

    Obama refuses to give credit to the Republican Party that: (1) started in 1854 as the anti-slavery party and fought to free blacks from slavery; (2) amended the Constitution to grant blacks freedom, citizenship and the right to vote; (3) started the NAACP to stop the Democrats from lynching blacks; (4) passed the civil rights laws of the 1860's that were overturned by the Democrats when they took over Congress in 1892; (5) founded the HBCUs; (6) started affirmative action enforcement in 1969 to help blacks get jobs and contracts based on merit; and (7) fought the Democrats for over six decades until Republicans finally achieved passage of the civil rights laws of the 1950's and 1960's under the leadership of Republican Senator Everett Dirksen of Illinois.
    This is filled with inaccuracies and revisionism.
    1. The Republican Party of 1854 was Republican in name only. If you actually study the History of the Republican and Democratic Parties, you will see the voter shifts and realigning elections that make this clear - main ones happened in response to FDR's New Deal and around the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
    2. The NAACP was founded by liberals (in part by white liberals) - one the main ones was W.E.B. Dubois (the head of the NAACP), who had many philosophical differences with Booker T. Washington, who is considered one of the first black conservatives.
    3. Civil Rights laws of the 1860s - see point #1.
    4. All kinds of people started HBCUs.
    5. I don't know what "starting affirmative action enforcement" means - it sounds like b.s. and spin
    6. The Democratic Protests of the Civil Rights bills are also explained by the voter shifts and realigning elections that Republicans never acknowledge.


    Let me explain:
    In 1948, Democrats alienated white Southerners in two ways. The Democratic National Convention adopted a strong civil rights plank, leading to a walkout by Southerners. Two weeks later President Harry Truman signed Executive Order 9981 integrating the armed forces. From 1948 onward, southern whites against integration looked for political accommodation for their views...The civil rights movement caused enormous controversy in the white South with many attacking it as a violation of states' rights...With the old barrier to becoming a Republican removed, traditional Southerners joined the new middle class and the Northern transplants in moving toward the Republican Party.

    I think it's time for you to study the actual history of American politics and not the propaganda version.

    The propaganda as you call it came from the National Black Republicans website. Perhaps your condescension should be directed there?

    Sure. It's directed at them and the people who post it as truth without checking their facts.

    Disrespect, is disrespect, & Racism is just that with a slight twist.

    Some people can't understand how I can disrespect a person and maintain respect for an office. I say all they have to do read the facts about Obama and it has nothing to do with race. Besides I don't see him as a black man. I see him as a Lying, Amateur whose only skill it reading lies from a teleprompter.

    Or Obama could be just a fool where race doesn't count.

    Anyway, good article, thanks.
    It was the Republicans who wanted to end slavery. The democeats were against that wacky idea.
