As background: My father was born in 1899, mother in 1914. They were life-long Democrats. I was raised in Maryland in the 50s where lynching happened, but (gratefully) rarely. Segregation had been “normalized.”
The “POWERFUL” benefitted by dividing the people. What I did not know then that I DO KNOW now is that the Democrat Party perpetuated the division. In the 60s, good people of ALL skin shades worked to expose racism and economic suppression. I remember the marches and riots.
It was in those times that the world received a gift from the Rev Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Did you know?
The 13th Amendment to the US Constitution was passed to ABOLISH SLAVERY.…
Did you know?
The 14th Amendment to the US Constitution was passed to give CITIZENSHIP to the freed slaves.
Did you know?
A politically motivated black community with white allies, mobilized to bring the Republican Party into power. The 15th Amendment, giving the RIGHT TO VOTE to the freed slaves, passed. There were multiple votes, Here's one count.
Just as today’s Dems destroy statues to erase history, the Dems of the 60s “rewrote” history in order to blame Republicans for being the racists and oppressors of minorities. "THE SWITCH"
What about JFK?

Some historians lavishly praise Democrat JFK for his Civil Rights position. Others have said he was too much of a bystander and too slow to take meaningful action.
When Dr. King was arrested on false charges, JFK was quiet.

But after discussion with his campaign, he called Coretta King.

Robert Kennedy placed a few calls; King was released.

This is Elbert Guillory, Former State Senator from Louisiana.
Watch his compelling, brutally honest video
Both white and Black Democrats in Congress choose to live in their wealthy, gated, segregated communities – but they continue to sling charges of racism at others. ALL to create division, get votes, and raise $$$.

VIDEO: Tucker Carlson on Maxine Waters…
Tell me again how liberal policies work for the poor?
Hillary Clinton, 2016 Presidential Campaign

Still further, as we see our President, Congress, and the American people discuss Immigration Reform, ask yourself ONE question.

Alveda King, Dr. King’s niece, knows who Donald Trump REALLY is.…

She supported HRC, but Oprah Winfrey knows who Donald Trump REALLY is.
The original air date was in 1988 – 30 years ago.

Donald J Trump on the campaign trail
For the forgotten men and women - skin color does not matter
#MAGA = OUR families, OUR jobs, OUR kitchen tables, OUR future
No need to wonder why the establishment HATES and FEARS him.
