Which party is the racist one?

Conventional wisdom in the liberal media is that Republicans are racists because they don't vote for welfare, affirmative action, and talk down to blacks. Most people who have attended American public schools have been given no historical reference as to which party supported slavery, segregation, opposed the civil rights act, and fielded KKK members to political offices.

Those that get their news from the drive-by media will also be in the dark about the unbelievably racist comments and attacks that are hurled at black Republicans. Those of us from Maryland remember all too well when the Baltimore Sun editorialized that the only thing that Lt. Gov. Michael Steele brought to the ticket was "the color of his skin". Well now there are black Republicans in the running for major political offices such as Keith Butler for Senate in Mich, Ken Blackwell for Gov. in Ohio, Lynn Swann for Gov. in Penn., and Vernon Robinson for Congress in N.C.

Here are excerpts from a fabulous John Hawkins column on this issue.

"To begin with, the Republican Party was founded by anti-slavery activists, in contrast to the pro-slavery Democratic Party. It was Abe Lincoln, a Republican President, who led the North to victory in the Civil War and freed the slaves while the Democrats did everything in their power to keep black Americans down.
Fast forward to 1898 in Wilmington, N.C., where Democrats murdered black Republicans so they could stage, "the nation's only recorded coup d'etat." Then, in 1922, Democrats in the Senate filibustered a Republican attempt to make lynching a federal crime. A little later on, FDR nominated former Klansman Hugo Black to the Supreme Court. Contrast that to Republican President Dwight Eisenhower, who actually "sent troops" to ensure that schools in Little Rock, Ark., were desegregated and ordered the, "complete desegregation of the Armed Forces." Noticing any trends?
But, that was such a long time ago, right? Things really changed in the '60s, didn't they? Yes, Americans -- particularly black Americans -- really owe Democratic President Lyndon Johnson a debt of gratitude for destroying American families and causing the number of illegitimate births to skyrocket -- by pushing entitlement programs that made it much easier to have children out of wedlock.
Remember George "segregation now, segregation tomorrow and segregation forever" Wallace standing in the door of an Alabama schoolhouse to keep black children from being able to go to school with whites? George Wallace was a Democrat. Remember Bull Connor turning water hoses and dogs on civil rights protestors? Bull Connor was a Democrat."

Update: July 6th- Democratic Senator Joe Biden was caught on film talking about the growing Indian-American population in Delaware. He said that in his state “You cannot enter a 7-11 or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.” Just imagine if a Republican would have said this? We know that all of the liberal elitists in the LKK share his disdain for immigrants. Keep in mind these are the same people that love illegal aliens.
