Racism Helps Republicans Win Elections According To Research

The authors of a new study correlate places in the south where slavery was most prominent to votes for today's Republican party.

In fact, according to the Washington Post, which published the findings, the counties or areas of the country where slavery was most prevalent vote Republican and continue to have the least progressive views on race (i.e., 20 percent of Republicans are against interracial dating/marriage, vs. 5 percent of Democrats.)

Of course, we are talking about the modern Republican party, not the “party of Lincoln.” A cursory history lesson shows that Dixiecrats left the Democratic party en masse after the Democratic party (led by President Lyndon Johnson) passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

According to the Post, “[Authors] Acharya, Blackwell and Sen examined data on racial attitudes from national polls conducted in 2010 and 2011, using the responses of white participants in the states of the former Confederacy, including West Virginia, as well as Missouri and Kentucky, slave states that did not secede. Those in counties where more slaves lived in 1860 were more likely to hold negative views of African Americans.”

The study also found that in the areas where slavery was prevalent, white voters in those areas were more likely to reject the presidency of Barack Obama.

Further, the negative beliefs that many Republicans hold are (not surprisingly) developed in childhood, regardless of how the mores and views country has moved:

“In general, there is evidence that children receive their racial prejudices from their parents, as well as the other adults in the communities in which they live. The three political scientists examined data from a national survey of high school seniors first conducted in 1965, which found that the students’ feelings about race were closely correlated with those of their parents.

If republicans were really interested in getting non white southerners to vote for them they would not use race to drive whites to the polls, they would just run on policy.  There are always some that will follow blindly, but they dont really want non whites involved, just a few minstrels for show.

What Olde Hornet said!!!!!

This is the key point IMO:

WE HAVE ALREADY SEEN - REPEAT, ALREADY SEEN - the supposed GOP OUTREACH TO BLACK VOTERS.

WE SAW IT IN THE 60S WITH THE GOP PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE'S OPPOSITION TO A CIVIL RIGHTS BILL and CONSERVATIVE LEADERS SUPPORTING THE WISHES OF "THE PEOPLE OF THE SOUTH" TO PRESERVE SEGREGATION - OF COURSE, THEY WERE SPEAKING ONLY OF WHITE PEOPLE, WHILE IGNORING THAT LARGE PORTION OF THE POPULATION THAT WAS BLACK WAS BEING DENIED ACCESS TO THE BALLOT.

WE SAW IT IN THE 70S WITH NIXON's WAR ON DRUGS BLACKS AND HIPPIES - per Ehrlichman, in his own words

WE SAW IT IN THE 80s WITH REAGAN'S SLICK BUT OBVIOUS ANTI-BLACK POLICIES

WE SAW IT IN THE 90s WITH BUSH 41's WILLIE HORTON AD

WE SAW IT IN THE PRIORITIES OF THE BUSH 43, ROMNEY & McCAIN CAMPAIGNS.

AND, OF COURSE,..

WE SEE IT IN THE OPEN AND BLATANT RACISM OF #ERRATICTRUMP.

SO,....
WE DO NOT NEED TO WAIT ANY LONGER FOR THE GOP OUTREACH TO BLACK VOTERS.

I guarantee you that 95% of the people who vote Republican are racist. The 95% even represents minorities who vote Republican.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
