The parties of today are nothing like the parties' stances in the 1960s.
How many times do you think LBJ used the N word each day?

LMAO No they didn't. Only one, Strom Thurmond switched parties. The democrats held the same 20 or so spots the dixiecrats held for the next 20+ years.
Trent was in the House and wasn't a dixiecrat. He switched parties in 1972 and didn't become a Senator until 1989. Helms didn't get to Congress until 1973.

The southern congress didn't become republican until the early 1990s. The less racist the south became, the more republican it became.

George Wallace, the segregationist would have won the 1972 democratic nomination for president if he hadn't been shot 2/3 of the way through. Humphrey won the popular vote with 25.5%, McGovern the actual nominee had 25.3% and Wallace a close 3rd with 23.5%. He never campaigned the last 1/3 of the way and that includes California.

Your party of the klan kept electing Sen Byrd who recruited his own klan chapter.

As the civil rights movement gained momentum in the 1950s and ’60s, the federal government passed a number of civil rights bills, four of which were named the Civil Rights Act.

Of the four acts passed between 1957 and 1968, Republicans in both chambers of Congress voted in favor at a higher rate than Democrats in all but one case. Republicans often had fewer total votes in support than Democrats due to the substantial majorities Democrats held in both the House and Senate.

Own your racist parties heritage.

You can thank the Federal Reserve's zero interest rate - free money - and massive infusion of money - QE -persistent for 6 years, 2009 - 2015 (September), for the bulk of the expansion.

Just as the Fed is now telegraphing - Powell's statement this past week - that they will keep the strong economy going by lowering interest rates.

Get educated, stop with the sycophantic adulation, be realistically smart.

First off, I think its great the unemployment rate for blacks has reached a "historical low" (the history started in 1972. However, I think blacks have full employment during slavery). Certainly the economy of Trump's era should be given as much credit as it would be given if the rate was historically high....so Kudos.



Secondly, Trump can be a racist (I am not saying he is or is not) and the unemployment rate for blacks can lower under Trump at the same time. They are not mutually exclusive. Trump needs a GREAT economy to get reelected, because he has so many other negatives. You cannot have a great economy and not have blacks share in some of it. If a pie produces crumbs....and blacks are getting crumbs, then producing more pies means blacks getting more crumbs. Record number of pies produce record number of crumbs.


Blacks are the least desired employees by white employers, unless its sports or entertainment. The reason is that blacks are seen as trouble, less intelligent, less hard working, potentially violent, etc. Most groups have a positive stereotype that would inspire white employers to hire them, such as the "smart Asian" or the "Hard working" Hispanic. This society associates nothing positive about blacks, unless is running or jumping. Hence, when the economy reaches theoretical full employment and companies need workers, then they "take a risk" to hire blacks and the unemployment rate starts to fall. Racism and discrimination are most effective in times of scarcity....not abundance. A person might not want to hire a black person....but if that is the only person applying for the job and you need to fill the position...you hire them.


Thirdly, the unemployment rate, by itself, is not really a good indicator of economic well being. What do the jobs pay? Are they full or part time? Do they offer benefits? If you had a job in Michigan in the 70's, working in a factory, you had great pay and great benefits. A man could make enough to raise a family of 4 without the wife needing to work. In today's economy, for a family of 4 to make it the wife, husband and kids have to have a job....and a 4 year college degree. Lots of jobs....but not lots of good paying jobs.



Finally, Blacks per capita income is still about 65% of white per capita income. The per capita income of blacks is about 20,000 while its about 32,000 for whites. For those who do not understand, that is the total income of a racial group divided by the number of people in that racial group. Thus, if you apply the per capita income to a married couple.....a married white household would have a household income of 64,000 compared to a black married household of 40,000. People seem to think that single parent homes is why black families are poorer. That is not the case. Black families are poorer because blacks male less money than whites on a per capita bases. If you make less money as individuals, you will still make less money as a household when compared with those groups whose individual incomes are higher.

Yes, Trump is a racist. No, the fact that the unemployment rate has fallen for blacks (same as other races) has nothing to do with it.
