I have been called every derogatory name for Blacks there is by Liberals...yes LIBERAL DEMS
Wait, aren't the LIBERAL DEMS the tolerant ones? The ones who always stand by minorities? The ones who cry Southern Strategy, when a Conservative reminds them that the DEMS WERE THE SLAVE OWNERS..and the REPUBLICANS fought a war to end slavery,,,,,

I will tell you why Blacks today suffer.. It is not their skin color.. It is because they went back to the MASSA..

Listen up Blacks.. If someone gives you a gift of great value, lets says a home.. and you give it back....well you live on the street..well YOU GAVE BACKTHE GIFT OF FREEDOM PURCHASED IN BLOOD BY REPUBLICANS...

And YOU returned to the MASSA.. That is why ya all suffer.. So I don't want to hear crap from the indoctrinated.. Just get away from Liberals n DEMS.. They are bad MOfkrs .. And don't think cause they put a half white boy in the WH that they love you.. They don't love you.. Ya all know what the joke is.. One, Ozero is a communist.. And eventually all your benefits for the plantation u live on will be taken.. But the bigger joke...Obama is the son of a the Africans that sold ya all into slavery.. Yea.. His fathers linage along with the muslims sold ya all into slavery.. What a final joke on Blacks.. Wake up, and rise up against this very well planned attack on Blacks n Minorities..
They use Blacks n whoever is weak, like teens n collage kids.. And indoctrinate the hell out of them.. Lie like rugs to ya all, while the LIBERAL DEMS work and live in big houses n drive fancy cars... The duped Blacks live in public housing like rats.. This is all the DEMS!

I challenge you all to tell me one DEM run black city that is not is shambles and full of crime, death, violence, drugs, and poverty.. I DARE YOU

Come on now.. Snow me your stats.. Show me what the DEMS have really done to lift up BLACKs.. I am waiting on ya all...

    All of my black friends on here are getting called nasty names and ridiculed for not being Obots. It's absolutely disgusting from the left, the people that claim they are so caring for the blacks. They are getting away with it because the moderators are libs.

    I know how the liberal democrats feel about the blacks, I had one tell me he liked the good old days when he could give them a quart of beer and some cigarettes and they'd work on his nasty rental houses a half a day for it. That's how they really feel about blacks.

    Blacks that are truly free, like you, are the strongest, bravest of all Blacks. I have so much respect for you for standing up for your beliefs and values, in spite of the vilification you receive, not just from Liberals, but from Black Liberals. That's why I love Lt. Col. Allen West, Condi Rice, Herman Cain, Thomas Sowell, et al. They've made it in spite of Liberal Blacks trying to make them toe the Liberal line. Talk about tough, strong and brave!!

    Why a race would suffer and die to throw off the yoke of southern slavery only to have 96% of their descendants willingly enslave themselves to the government plantation is just sickening. Blacks act as their own worst enemy when they believe the Leftist lies that the Right is the racist bogeyman, when exactly the opposite is true.

    jackson and sharpton are only there to get publicity and then the leave. What's amazing is that people think they really care.
    Are the poor better off down in New Orleans now that bama is president? What has bama done for anybody?
    If you want free phones and welfare,then you've come to the right place. Just remember that that money comes from working people and that the working people are getting tired of working for you rather than with you.
    We may all stop and go on welfare and then who would foot the bill?

    There used to be a show back in the late 50's early 60's called Dobby Gillis. In it there was a hippie type called beatnik. Every time you mentioned the word "work" around him, he'd repeat it really loud, like it was torture.
    That would be the DiMs thinking they really had to work to get what they wanted.

He believed that private businesses and clubs were subject only to market forces, not government mandates.
    It was he, who as Vice President, urged President Eisenhower to appoint Earl Warren to the Supreme Court. Earl Warren was well known for his pro civil rights views. Nixon was also in favor of sending troops to integrate Little Rock High.

    Media coverage of the 1968 presidential race shows that he was in favor of civil rights and would not compromise on this issue. For example, an article published in the Washington Post on September 15, 1968 headlined “Nixon Sped Integration, Wallace says.” In fact, it was Nixon’s principled stance on civil rights that prompted George Wallace, a well known racist, to enter the race on a third party ticket. Nixon, in his memoirs, said that “The deep south had to be virtually conceded to George Wallace. I could not match him there without compromising on civil rights, which I would not do.”

    No doubt the Republican Party, 'The Party of Lincoln' or 'The Party of Freedom' was very much the party that minorities gravitated towards...in the past. That changed though, big time, and I'm pretty sure you know that. I really hope you are not trying to convince anyone that the modern GOP stands for the very same things and represent the same people's interest as they did over 50 years ago or further back. You're not trying to do that right?

    The fact is, the modern day GOP has lost their attractiveness to most minorities. If the Democratic Party is so terrible and represents anti-minority (& anti-female), how do you explain the fact there are SO MANY AFRICAN AMERICAN CONGRESSMEN that are Democrats?

    Here is a nice list you and others can look at next time you want to say Democrats are anti-minority (pay close attention to the part that says 'modern era' and notice the party affiliation)...and then come back and explain that to me.

    Dixiecrats were southern Democratic slave owners who were conservatives and eventually they became Republicans.

    The Northern Democrats were much more liberal and they fought against slavery.

    http://blackhistorycorner.blo...

    In the voting for the Civil Rights Act the majority of the NAY votes on the Democratic side were made by the Dixiecrats.

    By party and region

    Note: "Southern", as used in this section, refers to members of Congress from the eleven states that made up the Confederate States of America in the American Civil War. "Northern" refers to members from the other 39 states, regardless of the geographic location of those states.

    The original House version:

    Southern Democrats: 7–87 (7–93%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–10 (0–100%)

    Northern Democrats: 145–9 (94–6%)
    Northern Republicans: 138–24 (85–15%)

    The Senate version:

    Southern Democrats: 1–20 (5–95%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–1 (0–100%)
    Northern Democrats: 45–1 (98–2%)
    Northern Republicans: 27–5 (84–16%)

    Can you please give me a list of the Dixiecrats who switched to the Republican party? I'll give you a hint: There were 3...The rest of the Dixiecrats were Democrats until the day they died. It amazes me that you liberals aren't aware of the fact that the members of Dixiecrats were a group of specific people there was a specific member list and everyone knew the names of all the people who were members. Out of that list of members only 3 became Republicans, all of the Dixiecrats were politicians and their political affiliations are matters of public record.So, your little Southern Strategy nonsense is easily debunked by simply looking up the actual members of the Dixiecrats and seeing that 3 switched and the rest of the Dixiecrats died as Democrats. Why didn't they switch? Just didn't feel like it huh?.

    William H. Murray, Former Oklahoma Governor
    Mills E. Godwin Jr. governor of Virginia

    **Why didn't these Dixiecrats switch parties? Strom Thurmond, Jessie Helmes and one other Dixiecrat switched can't recall his name and since there were only 3 total it just doesn't matter. Now you brush this glaring fact aside or come up with some other BS to explain this but the Southern Strategy states that the majority of the DIXIECRATS switched to Republican and you don't get to choose who the Dixiecrats were, we know all of them by name, public record!! There were not 1000's of members of the Dixiecrats, they were a specific group of people so don't even attempt to spew that nonsense. Liberals always think they can just add anonymous southern people to the Dixiecrat membership. BTW, a "southern Democrat" is a Dixiecrat and only 3 of them became Republican...This use of "southern and northern" is a bunch of malarky used to twist the truth.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The States' Rights Democratic Party (commonly known as the Dixiecrats) was a segregationist, socially conservative political party in the United States. The term Dixiecrat is a portmanteau of Dixie, referring to the Southern United States, and Democrat, referring to the United States Democratic Party. It split with the Democratic Party in the mid-20th century determined to protect what they saw as the Southern way of life against an oppressive federal government.[1]

    In the period following the Civil War, Reconstruction took place. The Union Army occupied the states of the former Confederacy, enforcing federal law protecting the rights of blacks, many of whom were freed slaves. Reconstruction abruptly ended in 1877, obliterating many of the gains that had been made in securing political and civil rights for blacks. When Reconstruction ended, the so-called "Redemption" occurred, disenfranchisement began anew, and the region gave its political allegiance almost entirely to the Democratic Party, giving it the name the "Solid South."

    In the 1930s, after the New Deal under Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a realignment occurred. Much of the Democratic Party shifted towards economic intervention and support for civil rights and liberties. After the crises of the Great Depression, World War II, and the beginning of the Cold War, Southern Democrats began to drift from the mainstream of the party. The formation of the Dixiecrat movement heralded an end to the New Deal coalition. For more than a century, white Southerners had overwhelmingly been Democrats, but in 1948 many bolted from the party, angered by Harry Truman's efforts to abolish or ameliorate the effects of racial segregation, and supported Strom Thurmond's third-party candidacy for president.

    Over the next several decades, as the white South slowly realigned from the Democrats to the Republicans, the term came to have a broader usage. For example, it was used to refer to those members of the Electoral College who voted for Harry F. Byrd rather than John F. Kennedy in the 1960 election, and to the white Southern voters and electors who supported George C. Wallace in 1968.

    1948 presidential election

    The States' Rights Democratic Party was a short-lived splinter group that broke from the Democratic Party in 1948. The States' Rights Democratic Party opposed racial integration and wanted to retain Jim Crow laws and white supremacy. The party's slogan was "Segregation Forever!" Members of the States' Rights Democratic Party were often known as Dixiecrats.

    During the 1948 Democratic National Convention, Southern delegates were upset by President Harry S. Truman's executive order to racially integrate the armed forces. The Mayor of Minneapolis, Minnesota Hubert Humphrey gave a speech urging the party to adopt an anti-segregationist plank, causing thirty five delegates from Mississippi and Alabama to walk out. When President Truman endorsed the civil rights plank, governor of South Carolina Strom Thurmond helped organize the walkout delegates into a separate party, whose platform was ostensibly concerned with states' rights.

    The Dixiecrats held their convention in Birmingham, Alabama, where they nominated Thurmond for president and Fielding L. Wright, governor of Mississippi, for vice president. Dixiecrat leaders worked to have Thurmond-Wright declared the official Democratic Party ticket in Southern states. They succeeded only in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina. In other states, they were forced to run as a third-party ticket. These included Arkansas, whose governor-elect, Sid McMath, a young prosecutor and decorated World War II Marine veteran, vigorously supported Truman in speeches across the region, much to the consternation of the sitting governor, Benjamin Travis Laney, an ardent Thurmond supporter. Laney later used McMath's pro-Truman stance against him in the 1950 gubernatorial election, but McMath won the position handily.

    Efforts by Dixiecrats to paint other Truman loyalists as turncoats generally failed, although the seeds of discontent were planted which in years to come took their toll on Southern moderates. Among these moderates was Rep. Brooks Hays of the 2nd District of Arkansas, whose efforts at reconciliation during the 1957 Little Rock School Crisis made him vulnerable to defeat in 1958 by a segregationist surrogate fielded by forces loyal to then-Governor Orval Faubus. Faubus had notoriously used the National Guard to bar entry to black pupils in defiance of a Federal court order.

    On election day 1948, the Thurmond-Wright ticket carried the previously solid Democratic states of Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina, as well as Alabama (whose Democratic party refused to recognize the Truman-Barkley ticket and had Thurmond on the ballot as its nominee), receiving 1,169,021 popular votes and 39 electoral votes. Henry A. Wallace drew off a nearly equal number of popular votes (1,157,172) from the Democrats' left wing, although he did not carry any states. The split in the Democratic party in the 1948 election was seen as virtually guaranteeing a victory by the Republican nominee, Thomas E. Dewey of New York, yet Truman was able to narrowly win election.

    Subsequent elections

    The States' Rights Democratic Party dissolved after the 1948 election, although some diehards such as Leander Perez attempted to keep it in existence.[2]

    Regardless of the power struggle within the Democratic Party concerning segregation policy, the South remained a strongly Democratic voting bloc for local, state, and federal Congressional elections. This was not true of Presidential elections.

    In 1960, Democratic electors in Alabama and Mississippi appeared on the ballot as "unpledged electors" instead of as electors pledged to Democratic nominee John F. Kennedy. All 8 of Mississippi's electors, 6 of Alabama's 11 electors, and one stray elector from Oklahoma (a state carried by Richard Nixon) cast their votes for Senator Harry F. Byrd of Virginia. Alabama's remaining 5 electors voted for Kennedy.
    In 1968, Alabama's Democratic former governor George C. Wallace ran for President on the American Independent Party ticket, and swept the electoral votes of the Deep South. The American Independent Party failed to keep its foothold in the South. Its 1972 candidate was John G. Schmitz, a John Bircher from California, whose strongest showing in the 1972 election was 10% in Idaho, but who did poorly in the South. Subsequent southern Dixiecrats running on the American Independent Party ticket included Lester Maddox and John Rarick, but these campaigns did not succeed either.

    In the 1960s, the courting of white Southern Democratic voters was the basis of the "southern strategy" of the Republican Party's Presidential Campaigns. Republican Presidential Candidate Barry Goldwater carried the Deep South in 1964, despite losing in a landslide in the rest of the nation to President Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas. Johnson surmised that his advocacy behind passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964 would lose the South for the Democratic party and it did. The only Democratic presidential candidate after 1956 to solidly carry the Deep South was President Jimmy Carter in the 1976 election.

    Senator Strom Thurmond switched parties and became a Republican as a result of his support for the Barry Goldwater campaign in 1964. Jesse Helms also switched his party registration to Republican in 1970 and won a Senate seat in North Carolina in 1972. Several other Southern senators, such as Richard Russell, Jr. of Georgia and James Eastland and John Stennis of Mississippi remained in the Democratic Party. They went on to become prominent senators who served multiple terms in the service of their respective states. These long careers in the Senate elevated their seniority and put them in positions of power and prestige.

    Into the late 20th century, the South changed from a Democratic monolith to a majority Republican sector of the country with GOP gains in state legislatures. This change, which became quite evident in 1972 with the electoral success of Richard Nixon's "Southern Strategy", peaked with the elections of Ronald Reagan in 1980 and George H. W. Bush in 1988. It was consolidated in 1994 when Republicans gained a majority in the House of Representatives under the leadership of Newt Gingrich.

    Can you please provide a list of Dixiecrats who switched to the (R) party? What were their names?? The people on that list are DEMOCRATS. The number of Dixiecrats who switched to Republican party is 3!! The only Dixiecrats that switched which are listed here are part of the three I already know. Wikipedia by way of a Jacksonville liberal rag huh? Wikipedia is bad enough but second hand through some shitty newspaper is laughable. Do you realize that most college professors will not accept Wikipedia as a source? Random people can edit it for Pete's sake! Lol.. Besides this, whatever it is, does not provide a list of the Dixiecrats who switched parties other than the three I already know. I looked up some of the names listed who for some reason have no party affliation next to their names and guess what...they are Democrats! This is proof of nothing other than the fact that you have no idea what credible proof is!! "Governer White...Dr.Frazier" Are you serious with this? Lol..

    In American politics, the Southern strategy refers to the Republican Party strategy of gaining political support or winning elections in the Southern section of the country by implicitly appealing to racism against African Americans.[1][2][3][4][5]

    Though the "Solid South" had been a longtime Democratic Party stronghold due to the Democratic Party's defense of slavery prior to the American Civil War and segregation for a century thereafter, many white Southern Democrats stopped supporting the party following the civil rights plank of the Democratic campaign in 1948 (triggering the Dixiecrats), the African-American Civil Rights Movement, the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, and desegregation.

    The strategy was first adopted under future Republican President Richard Nixon and Republican Senator Barry Goldwater[6] in the late 1960s.[7] The strategy was successful in some regards. It contributed to the electoral realignment of Southern states to the Republican Party, but at the expense of losing more than 90 percent of black voters to the Democratic Party. As the twentieth century came to a close, the Republican Party began trying to appeal again to black voters, though with little success.[7]

    This is real simple okay. Forget Wikipedia for a minute. Here's what I am asking for: A list of DIXIECRATS that switched to the Republican Party. What were their names? When did they switch? The Wikipedia article only mentions the three we already know! Which members of the DIXIECRATS switched besides those three?? According to the Southern Strategy most of the Dixiecrats switched to the Republican Party so, LIST them! What were their names?? I don't have to prove Wikipedia wrong because what I am asking for they can't and don't provide! All they do is repeat what the Southern Strategy is with a whopping 3 Dixiecrats that switched parties. Tell me, why is it that all but 3 Dixiecrats died as DEMOCRATS??? They lived their whole lives in the (D) party...why? If the (R) party was so racist friendly then WHY didn't they switch?!?
