The Democrat Party has a dark history against Black America, including the formation of the Ku Klux Klan, an organization to intimidate black communities with terror by lynching, burning, and murder of thousands of black people. Therefore, those decedents of black families who were slaves should receive reparations from the Democrat party.
Democrat leaders running for president have stated the American taxpayer should pay reparations; but they fail to point out that most of America was against slavery and over 700,000 Americans died in the bloody Civil War soon after Democrats ruled though the Dred Scott Decision in 1857 that black people were property and had no rights.
The Republican Party was formed in 1854 as the anti-slavery party, which was led by the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, who became known as the president who freed the slaves and preserved the union. Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth, a Democrat, in 1865 as Democrats opposed rights to Black America and implemented segregation, Jim Crow Laws, Black Codes, and formed the KKK as a terror network to keep black communities in their place while local and state laws denied rights and citizenship.
As black Republicans were elected to congress and state legislatures, the KKK murdered several hundred black officials or anyone assisting black representatives in order to gain control and scare volunteers.
The Republican Party introduced laws to fight racism, including the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871 to stop KKK activities, which was opposed by Democrats. The Republican Party proposed legislation to offer 40 acres and a mule to black families, which was also opposed by Democrats. The Republican Party started black colleges, which were named after white Republicans. The Democrats opposed and fought to keep them closed.
The Republican Party introduced the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments to end slavery, give citizenship, and give black people the right to vote. All were opposed by Democrats.
In 1924, the KKK was part of the Democrat platform in New York City as they marched in unison into the Democrat National Convention.
By the 1960’s, a Republican named Martin Luther King fought against the Democrats. Another Republican named A Phillip Randolph organized King’s March on Washington in 1963. King was opposed by President John F Kennedy and wire tapped by Attorney General Robert Kennedy, both Democrats.
Remember Governor George Wallace? Democrat Bull Connor? Democrat. They supported slavery and were the ones turning water hoses on black protestors in the 1960’s.
Another Democrat during the 1960’s to 2010 was Democrat Majority Leader Robert Byrd, who was not only a KKK member; but also a Grand Kleagle, a KKK recruiter. He and other Democrats opposed the Civil Rights Act of the 1960’s.
Then when Democrats couldn’t control Black America by design, they came up with a new plan to control Black America by deception. They figured if Black America was going to vote, they might as well vote Democrat. That is when President Lyndon B Johnson, who as a senator fought against the Civil Rights Act of 1957, stated, “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.” Johnson continued, “I’ll have those ni—rs voting Democrat for the next 200 years.” Johnson then signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
It wasn’t all of America who wanted slavery; but the perpetrators were the Democrats. So if these Democrat leaders are demanding reparations to the decedents of Black America, let it be paid by those Democrats.
