[quote author=“riomarcos”]Sorry, it was the Democrats that fought to end segregation and get rid of Jim Crow laws. LBJ, JFK, RFK, etc, all Democrats and it was Republicans like Senator Holling, Governor George C. Wallace of ‘segragation now, segragation tommorow, etc.’ fame, ans Cheney when he voted against a resolution calling for Mandela’s release, the Democrats also fielded the first African-American candidates.

riomarcos, I respectfully suggest that you need to take your head out of your ass and quit believing all of the revisionist history spin of the modern liberal Democrats.
[quote author=“riomarcos”]The list goes on and on… there’s no way you can convince me that the Republicans haven’t been in the 20th century the party of bigotry and racism.
Yes, the list does go on and on……….but obviously not in the manner that you suggest……but somehow, I do not expect you to be “convinced” by facts.
