In the 18th and 19th centuries southern Democrats stole Black people from Africa to make them slaves and work the plantation. It took a Republican named Abraham Lincoln to free the slaves and Blacks were only too happy to be free. In return Blacks voted solidly Republican for over a hundred years.
But, after 100 years the Republicans took the Black vote for granted. Sounds familiar?
Democrats began to scheme and figured out a way to get the “black vote” away from Republicans by telling some clever lies.
It was Republicans that brought you here as slaves when it was actually Democrats.
It was Republicans that filibustered the voting rights act of 64 when it was actually the Democrats.
It was the Republicans who started the Klu Klux Klan when it was actually Democrat Nathan Bedford Forrest.
So in the last 50 years the tables have been switched and African Americans solidly vote Democrat. The Democrat Party continues to tell lies and blame Republicans for their failing public schools even though Democrats have solid control of the entire public school system.
Psychological slavery is a tough thing to break. It may take another 50 years for the tide to go the other way. But, the first step requires acknowledging the truth.
