    Another poorly educated American. Democrats embrace the liberalism of Lincoln and the liberalism of other Republicans of his time and reject the reactionary policies of Democrats of that era. They would be Republicans today if the parties hadn't done an about face in the 20th Century with Democrats becoming the liberal party and Republicans the conservative party. Why do you suppose the South was solidly Democrat during and following Reconstruction but is now almost solidly Republican?

    Yes a Republican got the the slaves freed but the Republicans segregated black folks, opposed civil rights and oppressed them economically.

    Any democrat care to explain that????
    "Democrat" said that? Which one?
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

It's a non-starter for that reason. It's clear people of color are persistently economically worse off than so-called white people. The reasons are complex, but no doubt part of it is discrimination.
    Again that bill was paid in full by soldiers of the North, both black and white. It was paid in blood!!!!!

    Democrats aren't famous for thinking very far beyond their emotional appeal to gain a vote.

    Many see gerrymandering as a Jim Crow issue. Some (like me) see the stark racial divide in large urban school systems as effectively separate but unequal.

    It would appear that you believe in the "Big Switch" theory. Tell us where you disagree with Dinesh D'Souza's explanation.
