The Prager U video titled The Inconvenient Truth About the Democratic Party asks the simple question: Did you know that the Democratic Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, founded the KKK, and fought against every major civil rights act in U.S. history?
The real question is, why do black Americans continue to vote for the same party that has hurt them for so long and continues to hurt them, especially in inner cities? Well, in fact, in 2020 the Republican president Donald J. Trump gained six percentage points among black men, and five percentage points among Hispanic women, since the 2016 election. That is a movement, even though it is a small movement, it is still a movement all the same. That is further proof that the election was stolen, but that is another topic for another day.
The hatful lies and fake news about Trump and Republicans being racists is so think in the media that, sadly, enough people buy into it to sway elections. But it simply is not true.
Quoting the video: "When you think about racial equality and civil rights, which political party comes to mind? The Republicans? Or, the Democrats?
Most people would probably say the Democrats. But this answer is incorrect.
Since its founding in 1829, the Democratic Party has fought against every major civil rights initiative, and has a long history of discrimination.
The Democratic Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, opposed Reconstruction, founded the Ku Klux Klan, imposed segregation, perpetrated lynchings, and fought against the civil rights acts of the 1950s and 1960s.
In contrast, the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an anti-slavery party. Its mission was to stop the spread of slavery into the new western territories with the aim of abolishing it entirely."
