BD: Funny how this article left out the facts about the history of the #$%$. The #$%$ was started in 1866 by Democrats after the civil war to keep blacks from gaining rights and political power after the Republican led north defeated the Democrat led south. The #$%$ was the militia arm of the Democratic party and was used to kill thousands of blacks and Republicans. Congress, led by Republicans, passed laws to target them and their ranks decreased. However the #$%$ had a resurgence in 1915 when the movie "The Birth of a Nation" came out that glorified the #$%$. This movie had a special screening in the White House by Democrat Woodrow Wilson, who was a man who reversed a lot of the gains by Blacks into the Govt. Wilson was a supporter of the #$%$ and was even quoted in the movie. An honest look at history will show you that Democrats have always tried to stop the rise of blacks and minorities in this country. Republicans have pushed every major civil rights law that gave women and blacks rights. Look at the voting records yourself if you don't believe me. The Republican party today has been framed by the media who supports the Democrats and they have essentially rewritten history. Just today there was a guy on MSNBC talking to a black anchor and telling her that Republicans look at the "good old days" as when blacks couldn't sit on the bus or eat at a restaurant with whites. Odd since it was his party that fought to maintain that and Republicans fought against it.
