    Absolutely NOT!The democrats believe that because Republicans believe in fairness for everyone and do not support special programs for special groups that makes them racist. Republicans want people to stop relying on the racism crutch and start standing on their own two feet and take responsibility for their own lives instead of blaming others for their problems. This doesn't make them racist , it makes them mature.

    AGAIN - MLK SR. was a republican not MLK JR. and DID SWITCH to the democratic party voting for Kennedy and later was also a huge supporter of Jimmy Carter. The KKK began with extreme right-wingers, but politicians from both parties were known to be members.

  • Prominent Democrats want black people to vote for them, so they spew garbage about Republicans being racists. I don't think they believe a word they are saying.

    that is a rant

    1.) Read a history book, the parties back then were a lot different then today

    2.) Only a small minority of republicans a racist. I would say 5 -15%.

    3.)Name the democrat that said that

    4.)Where did you get this list, Wikipedia.

    in general, I think democrats are more racist. they seem to never give minorities the respect they deserve. they always have low expectations for them.

    Prominent Democrats are mostly liars. They are hateful, malicious little people.

    Neither party has a stranglehold on racist members: they tend to show up everywhere.

    And the Republican party of Lincoln has little to do with the Republican party of today...

    predjudice is everywhere.

    Republicans do not corner the market on this.
