Title: Blexodus: The Black Exodus From The GOP
Post by: klg14 on March 26, 2020, 08:15:55 PM
How did the party of the Ku Klux Klan became the party of choice for Black voters? And how did the party of Abraham Lincoln become 90 percent white? It's a messy story, exemplified in the doomed friendship between Richard Nixon and his fellow Republican, Jackie Robinson.

THIS STORY SIMPLY ILLUSTRATES WHY AFRICAN-AMERICANS WILL NEVER, REPEAT NEVER EMBRACE THE GOP.  https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/exclusive-top-cdc-official-warns-new-yorks-coronavirus-outbreak-is-just-a-preview/ar-BB11KRZA?ocid=spartanntp

???......black folks effectively hauled a.z.z from the GOP 56 years ago in the presidential campaign of LBJ vs. Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona.  Goldwater ran a racist campaign, attracting the states of the Ole Confederacy. And LBJ pushed civil rights as a legacy to the death of JFK who had his head damn near blown off in the assassination  of 11/22/63.

It’s almost CRIMINAL that mofos are graduating, purportedly, with a high school diplomacy, woefully ignorant of basic facts of this country’s civic and social history.   :shrug:

I thought most Blacks left the GOP after the New Deal to be honest. Not like millions upon millions of us were voting anyway back then.

Blacks left the GOP when MLK's father asked Kennedy to help get his son out of jail.  After MLK was released his father said" If I had a bucketful of votes I would throw them at Senator Kennedy's feet".  That help him defeat Nixon.

They way I understand it is that a significant number of Blacks became Democrats because of FDR and the New Deal. However, there were still many Black Republicans.

The election of Roosevelt in 1932 marked the beginning of a change. He got 71 percent of the black vote for president in 1936 and did nearly that well in the next two elections, according to historical figures kept by the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies. But even then, the number of blacks identifying themselves as Republicans was about the same as the number who thought of themselves as Democrats.

It wasn’t until Harry Truman garnered 77 percent of the black vote in 1948 that a majority of blacks reported that they thought of themselves as Democrats. Earlier that year Truman had issued an order desegregating the armed services and an executive order setting up regulations against racial bias in federal employment.


Eisenhower got 39% of the Black vote in 1956 and Nixon got 32% of Black votes in 1960.

I said a few years ago that today's GOP make me miss Reagan.  Strike got on me for that.  I said that to show how far (or low) the GOP has gone.  I am a person who says that today's economic problems go back to Reagan, who budget cuts were savage.

SO VERY TRUE.  MOST AMERICANS (OF ALL TYPES) DO NOT STUDY OR KNOW THEIR OWN HISTORY.  I KNOW FOR SURE THAT THERE ARE TWO ONNIDAN REGULARS WHO ROUTINELY DO NOT READ.
