|President Rutherford Hayes|
The Hayes-Tilden Compromise of 1877 was an attempt by Republicans to end the presidential election stalemate, as well as get the Democrats to stop the lynchings and respect the rights of blacks. Contrary to popular belief, President Rutherford Hayes did not remove the last federal troops from the South, but merely ordered federal troops surrounding the South Carolina and Louisiana statehouses to return to their barracks.

The Truth Is Often Suppressed So Blacks Are Led Astray
Behind closed doors, Johnson said: “These Negroes, they’re getting uppity these days. That’s a problem for us, since they got something now they never had before. The political pull to back up their upityness. Now, we’ve got to do something about this. We’ve got to give them a little something. Just enough to quiet them down, but not enough to make a difference. If we don’t move at all, their allies will line up against us. And there’ll be no way to stop them. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”
President John F. Kennedy was not a civil rights advocate
Democrat President John F. Kennedy is lauded as a proponent of civil rights. However, Kennedy voted against the 1957 Civil rights Act while he was a senator, as did Democrat Senator Al Gore, Sr. And after he became president, Kennedy was opposed to the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. King that was organized by A. Phillip Randolph who was a black Republican. President Kennedy, through his brother Attorney General Robert Kennedy, had Dr. King wiretapped and investigated by the FBI on suspicion of being a Communist in order to undermine Dr. King.

|Michael Steele "Sambo"|
Democratic Party operatives depicted Michael Steele on the Internet as a “Simple Sambo” with big, thick red lips and nappy hair, reminiscent of the way Democrats depicted blacks during the days of slavery. Cartoonist Jeff Danziger and Pat Oliphant portrayed Dr. Condoleezza Rice as a “stooge” and a bare foot “Ignorant Mammy”, just the way Democrats demeaned blacks during the days of slavery.
None of Clinton’s inner-circle of advisors were black, and he failed to take action to stop the massacre of over 800,000 Rwandans in 1994. Without congressional or UN approval, Clinton sent 20,000 troops to help the white Europeans in Bosnia, but refused to send troops to help the 800,000 blacks in Africa.

In the face of the use of the word "Nigger" on television by the late former Klansman Robert Byrd, Democrats slandered Lee Atwater with the false accusation that he used the “N-Word” in 1981 -- ten years before he died of a brain tumor on March 30, 1991 at age 40. Atwater was a tough political strategist who beat the Democrats in the political area, but he was not a racist. At the time of his death, even the mean-spirited obituary about Atwater that was published in The New York Times on March 30, 1991 did not mention his ever having used the “N-word.” The nasty obituary about Atwater can be found on the Internet at:
Every election cycle, Democrats try to deceive blacks by claiming falsely that Republicans engage in “voter suppression” and want to “disenfranchise” blacks, even though blacks are voting in record numbers, particularly in the 2008 election
Real voter intimidation was done by Black Panthers who wielded weapons, hurled racial insults at voters and blocked polls at a Philadelphia polling place in the 2008 Election. Incredibly, the charges were dropped by President Obama, which resulted in a unanimous Civil Rights Commission decision expressing outrage. Jerry Jackson, one of the Black Panther defendants is an elected member of Philadelphia’s 4th Ward Democratic Committee and was a credentialed poll watcher for Obama and the Democratic Party.
Democrats are also aligned with the AARP, one of the Democratic Party’s biggest special interest groups, and block Social Security reform, even though blacks on average lose $10,000 in the system because blacks on average have a five-year shorter life expectancy.
The roots of modern-day racism are planted firmly in the Democratic Party. For partisan political gain, Democrats fan the flames of racism, as they have done for over 200 years.
