Interestingly enough, Dr. King pointed out that political opposition to civil rights actually emanated froma kind of diabolical alliance between racist southern Democrats and right wing and largely racist Northern Republicans.
Political parties change and they have over the last 150 years. Today's Republican Party is not the party of Lincoln any more than today's Democratic Party supports the KKK and opposes integration. Then was then and now is now. I have always questioned the practice of trying to live in the past.
At any rate, it was Republican Barry Goldwater who opposed the Civil rights Act of 1964, not the Democrat Lyndon Johnson.
People always whining about food stamps but not about farm subsidies, it is all welfare. Michelle Bachmann and other Republicans will keep getting theirs from Uncle Sam.
Why is the welfare conversation only focused on food stamps and AFDC? Why no outrage on farm subsidies going to millionaires, it is still your taxpaying dollars?
So government intervention is demanded in this area, the whole time the same folks are whining about government handouts and entitlements? I thought the Republicans resented the government having its hands in their businesses and how business should be allowed to prosper and grow without government intrusion?
In that case, the authorities in a state governed by Republicans should have arrested Zimmerman on Februrary 26--just as they would have arrested Trayvon if he'd killed a white man.Because Republicans stand for law and order, to stop lynchings and vigilantes.

If whites had such a work ethic as they love to claim, why did they force Africans’ do all the hard work for no pay, for hundreds of years while white focused on raping, beating and killing blacks. Whites did not make America. They used blacks to make it for them. It will take another 1000 years before the debt of that sin is paid.
Just because, China has written records of every loan they have given to America, it does not mean they are the only ones that are owed. America is paying in social strife and decay, for the sins it has never atoned for, including the massacre of the native Americans and the enslavement of blacks.
Sorry you can’t sleep at night, without the the ghosts of racists, dead Indians and millions of African slaves haunting you. But the world is set up so that people reap what they sow and if they don’t then there decedents will.
Just stop for a second and listen to the voices millions of African slaves, calling to God for justice. Do you think they should be ignored. I’m sure you do and that’s why justice will be served regardless of what you think. That’s why God is going to allow the NWO to enslave you. No matter how much the laws of the land are rigged to benefit whites, they can’t escape the laws of cause and effect. Evil will take over the world. Only when whites have truly suffered will they regain their respect for the ones they so despised. Only then can real fight for freedom begin.
The problem with whites is that they want to have a clear conscience, in a world that has been ruined by their sins and the sins of their ancestors. They hate the guilt, by association that comes with being white, which is why they hate the topic of race ever being raise. So much so that they start threatening a race war, when race gets to close for comfort. Grow up white people. Race therapy is what you really need. There is light at the end of the tunnel, but you have to go through the tunnel first. This is what most just can’t do. Because the tunnel is just to black to bare. It’s their choice. Either whites grow up fast of their own accord, or the suffering imposed by the NWO will force them too see the error of their ways.

Different time, different Republican Party. isn't it ironic that the current REPUBLICAN governor of Virginia declared April to be CONFEDERATE HISTORY MONTH?
What actually concerns me is not the labels "Republican" and "Democrat", but the SUBSTANCE (if any) behind the label.
It is not without reason that former Dixiecrat racists and reactionaries move over to the Republican party, beginning with the Civil Rights Movement which reached its height during the liberal 1960s, and contemporary with liberal Democrat administrations.
Had Republicans not shifted to the Right, had they seized the moral initiative during and after the 1960s instead of nominating an anti-Civil Rights conservative like Barry Goldwater, and a bunch of other reactionaries after him, the Republicans might not have lost the Black vote. It might not have become this mainly SOUTHERN party of rightwing nonagenarians and kooks.
They are no longer the Party of Lincoln. Have you listened to ther campaign rhetoric? Not only is it no longer possible to run a Republican campaign as a "liberal" (even though there were once many liberal Republicans), you cannot even run as a MODERATE. Either you belong to the RIGHT--increasingly the far right--or you're out of the game.
Mitt Romney is actually attacked for being a moderate, not evenfor \.
And Barack Obama, whose politics would have mainly gotten him pegged as a "middle of the roader" from the time of FDR until at least the administration for Nixon and Jimmy Carter, is now seen as a socialist, even a communist (not to mention Muslim Communist).
No, the Republican Party is so far right now that it is nearly fascist.
Both parties stink, the the stench is far worse in the Republican camp.
