  •  The GOP is the current anti-Black party. (4+ / 0-)

    Throughout American history there has always been at least one.  From the three-fifths compromise, to those of 1820 and 1850, to the Civil War, to Jim Crow legislation, to Civil Rights legislation, to the wars on crime and drugs all the way up to John McCain, the anti-Black groups, later developed into parties, existed; they've also been wrong.  The names of the parties may change.  They may even flip with the less anti-Black party becoming more so, as after Civil Rights legislation enabled the Southern Strategy but the party who speaks most loudly against the interests of Black Americans has usually been wrong on the issues of their day.

    John McCain continues the tradition.
