You think the klan supports Democrats? Get real. Do your research.

You sound like you're making a statement that is pure conjecture and you're dangerously close to not being taking seriously. 1) What makes you think that black people are so passive and primitive as to be "exploited"? 2) What is this "help" that blacks need? 3) How can programs keep "them dependent on the system"?

Expose your biases and eliminate yourself.

I didn't know the Klan exists in the republican party, although I'm sure many members of the Klan may be republicans....but the democrats have a Klan member in Sen. Robert Byrd.

Robert Byrd that was a member of the KKK (and a Democrat), and Martin Luther King was a Republican, so try again to compare the Republicans to the Klan because it just shows how much of an a.. you are.

Are you talking about today, or 45 years ago?

Forty-five years ago, the Democratic Party was a haven for segregationists and klan types (Byrd included). Dr. King and others were Republicans because Lincoln was a Republican.

But when Americans who believed in human rights and full integration began to have a voice in the Democratic Party, almost all of the segregationists and Dixiecrats were welcomed with open arms into the Republican Party.

If anything, its the democratic party that is racist. 97% of Blacks in the Democratic Party voted for a Black candidate. That is pretty racist.
Do you have a source for this information?

I can't find information on the current political makeup of the klan. Possibly because it is a "secret society". Do you have a site to substantiate this? One with current statistics for the political makeup of the KKK. I can't find anything sound.

Since blacks don't particpate i the reublican party to any large extent they are nopt really a priority voice among those that do. Hispanics have a much larger voice. Many blcks consolidate their votes to get the most political power. Thats politics really.

But they didn't really have a choice in 2004. Do you really believe that Obama's race meant nothing in the pre centaage of votes he got amoung blacks against Hillary clinton? The clintons were no republican candidate itiher and very popular before the election with blacks. Then they were called trash hillbillies. Get a gripe on reality.
