    James Buchanan and Franklin Pierce were true democrats. Democrats are EXACTLY the same today. Obama refuses to use the word "terrorist". The party has a history of being on the WRONG SIDE. They always side with guilty people. Much like obama is a muslim "sympathizer" who refuses to acknowledge that their ideology teaches and spreads TERRORISM. They FORCE people to be muslims. They force woman to wear HIJABS or their heads are cut off. This is like Buchanan and Pierce siding with slavery.

    THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS NOT CHANGED. They are always on the opposite side of GOOD JUDGEMENT.

    I know the answer, but I'm not African American... should I answer?

    The Republican Party was created in 1854 in opposition to the Kansas-Nebraska Act that would have allowed the expansion of slavery into Kansas.

    Well I am loyal to the Libertarian party but; yeah southern democrats were and are for the most part elitist bastards & bigots.

    I think the system as it is, influenced by the left has kept many blacks from succeeding or living up to their potential.

    Um, yes they were big proponents of ending slavery, but they were formed mainly to counter the conservative slave-holders in order to retain a voice in government. Derek is right--back then, the Democrats were the conservative party.

    Why is that question directed to African Americans? If you want an educated answer I would ask everyone.

    In a big part for racial equality.

    But it sounds as if you have already formed an answer yourself.

    So why the post?
