The Democratic Party’s Evolving Racism Toward Blacks

From American Thinker

Democrats complain about racism. Republicans do something about it.
Democrats continue their 200-year tradition of setting low standards for African Americans.

“Rather I should die a thousand times … than see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.” – Robert Byrd, Democrat Senator (1959 through 2010) and founder of the Sophia, West Virginia chapter of the Ku Klux Klan (150 members)

“I did not lie awake at night worrying about the problems of Negroes.” – Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, 1961

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness” – Lyndon B. Johnson (1963)

“I’ll have those n**gers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” – Lyndon B. Johnson confiding in two governors why the passage of his civil rights and welfare legislation was important (1963)

In a recent American Thinker article (The Secret Racist History of the Democratic Party), Kimberly Bloom Jackson
made the case that the Democrats were the party of racists. She presents concrete examples from the 19th and early 20th centuries. This is a relatively straightforward case to make and Democrats will usually acknowledge their racist heritage. They insist, however, that the two parties switched places in the 1960s: Democrats are now the champions of African Americans, while Republicans are the racists. This article makes the case that no such switch occurred.

In reality, the underlying racist views of the modern Democratic Party have changed little in the last 200 years, since their founding by Andrew Jackson, celebrated slave owner and Indian fighter. As long as Democrats were able to suppress the black vote, they regarded African Americans as beasts to be suppressed. Once blacks achieved political power in the 1960s (more so through the efforts of Republicans than Democrats), the left decided to treat African Americans with gentleness, sympathy, and understanding — as pets. In other words, the Democrats simply changed tactics once they recognized that African Americans had achieved political power.
