The Truth About Slavery and Racism

It is strange but a constant how our history keeps evolving when ever the media or politicians get evolved. What is more astonishing is how our minorities in this country never research the history of civil rights but believe what ever the media and politicians say, the same ones who keep lying to us day in and out. If you are a minority, have you researched your history to see what is fact an what is fiction; I bet not. History doesn't evolve no matter what the politicians say and many of them who say they marched for equal rights never left the couch. It was and still is a worth while fight but the problem is most minorities do not see that they once again becoming slaves of a chosen group of elitist so lets take a look at history.

September 22, 1862: Republican President Abraham Lincoln issues preliminary Emancipation Proclamation.

January 1, 1863: Emancipation Proclamation, implementing the Republicans’ Confiscation Act of 1862, takes effect: The Democratic Party continues to Support Slavery.

February 9, 1864: Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton deliver over 100,000 signatures to U.S. Senate supporting Republicans’ plans for constitutional amendment to ban slavery.

June 15, 1864: Republican Congress votes equal pay for African-American troops serving in U.S. Army during Civil War.

January 31, 1865: 13th Amendment banning slavery passed by U.S. House with unanimous Republican support, intense Democrat opposition: Republican Party Support: 100% Democratic Party Support: 23%.

April 8, 1865: 13th Amendment banning slavery passed by U.S. Senate: Republican support 100% Democrat support 37%.

November 22, 1865: Republicans denounce Democrat legislature of Mississippi for enacting “black codes,” which institutionalized racial discrimination.

December 6, 1865: Republican Party’s 13th Amendment, banning slavery, is ratified.
*1865: The KKK launches as the “Terrorist Arm” of the Democratic Party.

May 10, 1866: U.S. House passes Republicans’ 14th Amendment guaranteeing due process and equal protection of the laws to all citizens; 100% of Democrats vote no.

July 16, 1866: Republican Congress overrides Democrat President Andrew Johnson’s veto of Freedman’s Bureau Act, which protected former slaves from “black codes” denying their rights. Black Codes- Enacted in 1865 and 1866, the laws were designed to replace the social controls of slavery that had been removed by the Emancipation Proclamation and the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution.

July 30, 1866: Democrat-controlled City of New Orleans orders police to storm racially-integrated Republican meeting; raid kills 40 and wounds more than 150.

March 30, 1868: Republicans begin impeachment trial of Democrat President Andrew Johnson, who declared: “This is a country for white men, and by God, as long as I am President, it shall be a government of white men”.

1868 (July 9): 14th Amendment passes and recognizes newly freed slaves as U.S. Citizens: Republican Party Support: 94% Democratic Party Support: 0%.

September 3, 1868: 25 African-Americans in Georgia legislature, all Republicans, expelled by Democrat majority; later reinstated by Republican Congress.

October 7, 1868: Republicans denounce Democratic Party’s national campaign theme: “This is a white man’s country: Let white men rule”.

November 3, 1868: Republican Ulysses Grant defeats Democrat Horatio Seymour in presidential election; Seymour had denounced Emancipation Proclamation.
December 10, 1869: Republican Gov. John Campbell of Wyoming Territory signs FIRST-in-nation law granting women right to vote and to hold public office.

February 3, 1870: The US House ratifies the 15th Amendment granting voting rights to all Americans regardless of race: Republican support: 97% Democrat support: 3%.

February 25, 1870: Hiram Rhodes Revels becomes the first Black seated in the US Senate, becoming the First Black in Congress and the first Black Senator. A Black Democrat Senator didn’t show up for 123 years later on Capitol Hill until 1993.

April 20, 1871: Republican Congress enacts the (anti) Ku Klux Klan Act, outlawing Democratic Party-affiliated terrorist groups which oppressed African-Americans.

The Congressional records don't lie, there was a strong push in the Democratic party against all civil rights legislation, look up the following:

Civil Rights Act 1866
Reconstruction Act of 1867
Freedman Bureau Extension Act of 1866
Enforcement Act of 1870
Force Act of 1871
Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871
Civil Rights Act of 1875
Civil Rights Act of 1957
Civil Rights Act of 1960

And during the 60's many Democrats fought hard to defeat the:

1964 Civil Rights Act
1965 Voting Rights Acts
1972 Equal Employment Opportunity Act, Congressional records show after signing the 1972 Equal Employment Opportunity Act and issuing Executive Order 11478, Richard Nixon, a Republican, that started what we know as Affirmative Action.

On December 15, 1994, federal Judge David V. Kenyon issued a court order to the Clinton Administration in the Case of Fairchild v Robert Reich Secretary of Labor (#CV92-5765 Kn). The order demanded that Secretary Reich and the Clinton Administration force 100 west coast shipping to develop an Affirmative Action plan to stop discrimination against, African Americans, Hispanics, Female and Disabled Workers. Female employees were being sexually harrassed, Hispanic were being denied promotions and training, Disable Workers were being laid off, and African Americans were being force to work in an environment where they had job classification called " Nigger Jobs." Clinton left office six years later and never complied with the court order.

I know, this is old news but I believe racism needs to be stomped out where ever it is, but it needs to be done on all sides. Why does the NAACP come out if someone attacks a Democrat but not a Republican; what about  Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson calling Clarence Thomas an 'Uncle Tom'?

Donald Sterling is band for life for racist comments (rightfully so) but Democratic politicians and leaders are still making racist remark with no repercussions; the same should be done to them as was Donald Sterling. Below are some examples:

The president even said "White folks' greed runs a world in need", this is racism today which shows the Democratic party hasn't changed a bit. By indoctrinating youth that they are "owed and entitled" to other peoples money instead of making people stand on their own two feet and being responsible for their own destiny, the Democratic party has almost single handedly assured the next fifty years of race fighting. The redistributing of wealth does nothing to help a soul and will just bring our nation down. Look up our history; you can't trust the politicians or the media to tell you the truth about anything past or present.
