A minority group at a university is seeking to rewrite the past regarding racism and discrimination. They are placing most of the blame on one main political party. However, we must take a look at all the facts from the past that surrounded each situation before placing blame. Many times things aren’t what they seem.
- President Lincoln, a Republican, was opposed to slavery. In contrast, the Democrats were pro slavery. This was racism then.
- A century later, the party now associated with racism is the Republican party. Which is ironic, because it has always been the Democrats who wanted segregation.
- it was the majority of the Republicans who voted for the abolition of slavery, the passing of the 14th Amendment, and the right of African-Americans to vote.
“”It is always insinuated that the Republicans are the historical racists in this country. The exact opposite is true.””
