Setting The Record Straight

Very interesting documentary. Shows the truth about the party that calls itself "the party of civil rights" (the democratic party). Shows how the KKK was founded by the democratic party. They also did everything they could to keep slavery legal. The democrats are the ones that passed all the segregation laws and the racist laws to keep blacks from voting and other laws. It was the republican party, which was formed to try to stop slavery, that was the true party of civil rights. They did everything they could time and time again to try to pass civil rights laws that were voted down time and time again by democrats. Even today the democrats are against school choice for blacks. The overwhelming majority of blacks support school vouchers, but the democrats seem to want to keep blacks in failing schools rather than give them the choice to go to a better school. This dvd should be required viewing in schools.

Stephanie, how do you not understand that the SOUTHERN Democrats were the ones who founded the KKK, etc. These were people like Strom Thurmond, for God's sake, they nearly all became REPUBLICANS and form the base of that party today. Jeez, place things in CONTEXT. The SOUTHERN DEMOCRATS of the early 20th century ABANDONED THE PARTY in the 50's and 60's as the Democratic party moved towards ending segregation. How can you not see this? Look at voting patterns from the South! 1870's-1950's - South votes Democratic. 1960's-present - South votes Republican.

Democrats tend to be against school vouchers because they would rather invest in the public schools instead of creating flight to private schools. It isn't about racism, it is about whether a democratic government should invest in educating our children or if we should subsidize private groups to do so.

Read the 2% Solution, Stephanie, it will interest you, I swear. He even advocates for a form of voucher.
