A greater percentage of Republicans, in both the House and Senate, voted for the Civil Rights Act, than the percentage of Democrats.

House Democrats: 15296 (61%-39%)
House Republicans: 13834 (80%20%)

Senate Democrats: 46-21 (69%-31%)
Senate Republicans: 27-6 (82%-18%)

Even though Democrats were in the majority in both houses, they would not have been able to pass it at all, unless such large majorities of Republicans also voted to pass. Fortunately the Republicans came through and saved the bill from the defeat Democrats alone would have given it.

Democrats have always supported racism. From their founding of the KKK, to their current majority membership in it, to the majority support of racist legislation in Congress even today.

If I were a Democrat, I'd try to fake as many excuses for not associating racism with Democrats as I could, just as the leftists in this thread do. The truth is just too painful for Democrats... as usual.

So what you are saying is that you don't understand the difference between northern politicians and southern politicians.

You do realize that people for whom this is a major issue generally know the history of that time pretty well. Many of them even lived through it. I seriously don't know what you hope to accomplish since you aren't fooling anyone except your own true believers.

And all of a sudden Democrats did a total change and were not racist <sarcasm>

Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Democrat, who founded the Ku Klux Klan.

Woodrow Wilson segregated Federal Buildings and jobs after 50 years of integration under largely Republican administrations.

It was the Democrat Party in the South that instituted Jim Crow Laws.

It was the Democrat Party in the South that instituted "separate but equal".

It was the Democrat Party in the South that supported the Ku Klux Klan.

It was George Wallace and the Democrat Party in the South that said "Segregation Forever".

Orval Faubus and the Democrat Party that wanted the Arkansas National Guard to enforce segregation

Can this topic be given a one year break?

These same arguments are getting lamer by the thread.

Same way today's Democratic party tries to tie in the extreme Tea Party with the regular Republican base.

As many times as the Democrats try (over and over) to pretend it's not so.
