    Actually, they don't have to go back any further than five years, to GW Bush (you know, the guy who had the first black Secretary of state, and the first woman.)

    The Democrats voted against her, BTW.

    But they can also go back to Eisenhower, who desegregated the military, and sent troops to support school desegregation in Little Rock, when the Democrat governor refused to let black kids enroll.

    You are a sheep. You buy into the 2 party paradigm. Since you are young i'll offer some advice, the 2 parties are the same thing about the only thing that matters, FREEDOM.

    Realistically, Republicans have brought about much greater reform to advantage minorities than the Democrats have.
