SOMEONE PLEASE TELL THE NATION WHAT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS DONE FOR THE BLACKS

Compiled & Written by WebMaster
JEN

As an American Citizen I am sick and tired of hearing the word “RACIST” every time the democrats speak out on issues, it really does not fit into American Society today.  Yes, we have people or fringe groups who may act in a racist way, but you do not condemn the nation for the faults of a few!  It is time we as a nation of one people come together to work to make America the greatest place to live and raise our families in the world

DEMOCRATIC HISTORY WITH REGARDS TO BLACK AMERICANS

Why Does Black America consistently vote for a party that for better part of 163 years, has tried everything in their power to keep Black Americans from becoming free citizens of the United States of America?

What has/did the First Black Elected President of the United States chosen by a large majority of Black Americas do for the Black Citizens of this Nation in his 8 years in office?

All the ranting we have heard over the past 8 years under President Barrack Obama’s Administration always had the word “Racist” embedded somewhere in the rhetoric;, “Racist” was also the Battle Cry of the 2016 democratic campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, this has not changed since President Trump was Elected, the Democrats are still calling conservatives and the president “Racist” !

If you look at the facts below, study them closely, please tell me who the “Racist” party is. If you questions these verified facts, the Please show America a list of accomplishments the Democratic party has accomplished to help Black American Citizens over the past 163 years..

Back in 1964 when the civil rights bill came to the floor of the senate for debate on March 30, 1964, the “Southern Bloc” of 18 southern Democratic Senators and one Republican Senator led by Richard Russell (D-GA) launched a filibuster to prevent its passage. Said Russell: “We will resist to the bitter end any measure or any movement which would have a tendency to bring about social equality and intermingling and amalgamation of the races in our (Southern) states.”

In 1865 Lincoln put the measure forward for a second vote having failed earlier before he took office to amend the constitution with the 13th Amendment, On the passage of the joint resolution to amend the Constitution of the United States, the aye’s have 119, the no’s 56.” The measure passed by the narrowest of margins, with eight members abstaining. Sixteen Democrats, all but two lame ducks, joined the full slate of Republicans in approving the measure.

The Klu Klux Klan was created by Democrat Party members for the express purpose of terrorizing blacks in the South to prevent them from voting, every known Klansman were members of the Democratic Congress.

The first grand wizard of the KKK was honored at the 1868 Democratic National Convention.

No Democrats voted for the 14th Amendment to grant citizenship to former slaves and, to this day, the Democrat Party website ignores those decades of racism.

Three years after Appomattox, the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting blacks citizenship in the United States, came before the Congress: 94 percent of Republicans endorsed. Not one single Democrat voted for the 14th Ammendment
