Democratic Party's Actual Civil Rights Record Outlined

"Volumes could be written about Senator Robert Byrd, the West Virginia Democrat. The Democratic Senior Senator, and Senate Democratic leader from 1977-1989, Byrd is a former member of the Ku Klux Klan. He filibustered against the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and used a racial slur on national television as recently as 2001. But since he's a Democrat, no one calls for his resignation. Compare that to the treatment Trent Lott received for his dumb (asinine -- Ed.)comments.

"Bill Clinton, who has been called 'the first black president,' does not have the sterling record on race that one is led to believe. In an event that is all but forgotten today, Newsmax.com reports that then-Arkansas Governor Clinton was sued by the NAACP in 1989 for violating the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965. A three judge panel ordered him to redraw electoral districts to allow blacks to have greater voting strength....

"Of course, there is and has been racism in both parties, which every intelligent American regrets. But to claim that the Democratic Party has a superior record on civil rights is to ignore 150 years of history."

Booker T. Washington said:

"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."
