It is a myth.

Dems only suck up to minorities to get their votes. They hate minorities more than anyone else.

Who else would agree with affirmative action, welfare, and shit like that? Only fucking racists.

"Blax are too fucking stoopid to work hard, go to college, and do basic level shit, so we can promise them this stuff if they only give us votes."

Republicans were the party of freedom.

Democrats were the party of slavery. Only difference is: then they used to enslave blacks; now they enslave whites
>>
>>61006314

Because the Democratic party was created to support slavery, they were the party of the slave states, and the KKK, and of segregation.

Martin Luther King was a Republican.

That first quote from LBJ is very similar to what a haitian man told me the other day. The haitian guy works 2 jobs and seemed to understand that getting a cell phone, roof over your head and food was enough to pacify many blacks. He doesn't want any of that stuff and said it's not good in the long run.

Democrats represented the wishes of small farmers and were generally agricultural based. They were pro the free coinage of silver and against large corporations ruining agrarian life with mechanization.

Republicans were pro large enterprise, and utilized tariffs to decrease taxes. They were constantly in favor of big business, as they are today, which utterly disinterested small time farmers, the main voter-base of the Democratic party. They were vehemently pro the gold standard, which made money scarce to help business but at the same time hurt small farmers, and their tariffs, while protecting home industries by artificially forcing Americans to buy home made goods, hurt Farmers and small manufacturers who could not afford sometimes ridiculously expensive home prices.

Tariffs eliminated foreign competition, so home industries could control the price of their goods. They often raised these prices, severely hurting small farmers.

TlDr; Southerners were farmers. Republicans were pro big business. Southerners voted for Democrats. Democrats represented slavery b/c essential to farming efficiently at the time,

Except he's right. Republicans have been consistent while the Democrats are the ones who have always flip flopped on their platform.

The Democratic Party was formed by Andrew Jackson and was created around Jeffersonian ideals of limited federal rach which allowed leeway for slavery in written law. The GOP was founded as an anti-slavery party. After the civil war, as soon as the south was 'reconstructed,' those states once again began voting for the Democratic party once again out of tradition and after political accommodation made by other regions. This inter-party accommodation would last until the mid-20th century. Eventually the parties began dividing along lines of ideology and thus the south was more at home in the conservative GOP than the Democratic party. This process was slow with the modern Civil Rights movement pushed many white southerners out of the party and many blacks in. The south being the blackest region in America, the civil rights issue and integration specifically meant much more in their daily lives than people's in other regions.

the Democrats implemented the New Deal, and that got minorities to vote for their party. They then labeled Republicans as racist for wanting to take away the growing welfare state. The ones who wanted more independence and self sufficiency went against that and voted Republican.
>>
>>61006314
Well after the Civil War, the dems used terrorism to maintain gain and keep power in the South.
>>
>>61011726
Affirmative action devalues accomplishments by lowering standards for a specific group of people. For instance, a white applicants resume is greater to an equal black applicants resume because of the higher standards that the white applicant had to meet.

The welfare system is also designed to keep people dependent on the government for support. It discourages marriage and encourages negative behavior that gives the family bigger checks, like keeping your kids uneducated.

Civil war won by north, president is Lincoln, a republican.

>who were the southern Democrats and old right

antifederalist -> democratic-Republicans -> Democrats

The switch wasn't instant there were many splinters groups and factions. The core philosophy of the Democrat party didn't start to change until the progressive era.

The GOP was found by Lincoln (a Hamiltononian) and Forty eighters (European, mostly german, socialist who immigrants who left Europe after the failed socialst revolution in 1848).

The parties didn't switch, they both did evolve however.
>>
>>61006314
Because democrats opposed abolition, and this made the south mostly democratic until the democrats ushered in civil rights for blacks. Southern voting habits have been motivated almost entirely by racism for a couple hundred years.
