    The following, courtesy of Larry Elder from his book, Stupid Black Men:

    “How many blacks know that following the Civil War, twenty-two blacks—thirteen of them ex-slaves—were elected to Congress, all as Republicans? The first Black Democrat was not elected in Congress until 1934, from the state of Illinois. The first black congressional Democrat from a Southern state was not elected until 1973.”

    “Democrats, in 1854, passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act. This overturned the Missouri Compromise and allowed for the importation of slaves into the territories. Disgusted with the passage of this Act, free-soilers and antislavery members of the Whig and Democratic parties founded the Republican party—not just to stop the spread of slavery, but to eventually abolish it.”

    “How many blacks know that blacks founded the Texas Republican party? On July 4, 1867, in Houston, Texas, 150 blacks and 20 whites formed the party. No, not the Black Texas Republican Party, they founded the Texas Republican Party.”

    “Fugitive slave laws? Democrats passed the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. ”

    “How many blacks know that blacks founded the Texas Republican party? On July 4, 1867, in Houston, Texas, 150 blacks and 20 whites formed the party. No, not the Black Texas Republican Party, they founded the Texas Republican Party.”

    “Fugitive slave laws? Democrats passed the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. ”

    “Emancipation? Republican President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation during the Civil War. In 1965, the Thirteenth Amendment emancipating the slaves was passed with 100 percent of Republicans (88 of 88 in the House 30 of 30 in the Senate) voting for it. Only 23 percent of Democrats (16 of 66 in the house and 3 of 8 in the Senate) voted for it.”

    “Civil rights laws? In 1868, the states ratified the Fourteenth Amendment, to give newly emancipate blacks full civil rights and federal guarantee of those rights, superseding any state laws…Not a single Democrat (zero of 36 in the House, zero of 6 in the Senate) voted for it.”

    “Right to vote? When Southern states balked at implementing the Fourteenth Amendment, Congress came back and passed the Fifteenth Amendment in 1870, guaranteeing blacks the right to vote. Every single Republican voted for it, with every Democrat voting against it.”

    “Ku Klux Klan? In 1872 congressional investigations, Democrats admitted beginning the Klan as an effort to stop the spread of the Republican party, and to reestablish Democratic control in Southern states.”

    “Jim Crow laws? Between 1870 and 1875, the Republican Congress passed many pro-black civil rights laws. But in 1876, Democrats took control of the House, and no further race-based civil rights laws passed until 1957.”

    “In 1892, Democrats gained control of the House, the Senate, and the White House, and repealed all the Republican-passed civil rights laws. That enabled the Southern Democrats to pass the Jim Crow laws, poll taxes, literacy tests, and so on in their individual states.”

    “How many (Americans) know that only 64 percent of Democrats in Congress voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act (153 for, 91 against in the House; and 46 for, 21 against in the Senate)? And 90 percent of Republicans (136 for, 35 against in the House; and 27 for, 6 against in the Senate) voted for the 1964 Act?”

    “You think the Republican National Committee could get that many people of color in a single room?... Only if they had the hotel staff in here. – Howard Dean, during a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus”

    What's wrong with crazy? I like crazy!! Especially when your brand of "crazy" makes total sense?

    And the lion share of the credit for the post MUST belong to the author, Larry Elder! He did the research and wrote the book that should be required reading in EVERY public school in America!
