why does democrats.org say "For more than 200 years, our party has led the fight for civil rights" when their party was pro slavery?

pro segregation, pro Jim Crow laws, and Pro Japanese internment......it seems to me their party has an awful history?

    They're whitewashing their history because they're trying to convince people to join the party.

    I suppose the same reason regressives keep implying that the Democrats today are the same “christian conservatives” that supported slavery and Jim Crow.

    lol.

    and their history section starts off with Woodrow Wilson who segregated federal jobs, the military, and even DC street cabs.

    i also notice their history section makes no mention of the "party switch" todays democrats are always talking about. you would think such a significant event would have been mentioned somewhere?
