Black Pastor Sues Obama & Democratic Party for Racism – Patriot Update. This is a very interesting article. The pastor is saying the Democratic party is trying to whitewash their own history. The Democratic party was founded about 200 years ago. I remember from when I got married in 1970 how much the Party has shifted and changed. When we got married we were Democrats but as the Party became more liberal and leaned toward socialism, we switched to Republican. Now Reverend Perryman is calling them on the lies on their web page. The web page states: ”
Democrats are unwavering in our support of equal opportunity for all Americans. That’s why we’ve worked to pass every one of our nation’s Civil Rights laws, and every law that protects workers. Most recently, Democrats stood together to reauthorize the Voting Rights Act.
On every civil rights issue, Democrats have led the fight. We support vigorous enforcement of existing laws, and remain committed to protecting fundamental civil rights in America.
What is true, is that the Democratic Party blocked every effort by the Republicans towards Civil Rights.
In 1985, General Sherman and Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton went to meet with twenty Black community leaders in Savannah, Georgia to discuss freedom and reparations for former Black slaves.… By June 1865, over 40,000 former slaves were settled on 40-acre tracts of land. Over 400,000 acres were allocated. In September of 1865, Democrat President Andrew Johnson reversed Field Order No. 15, issued special pardons, and returned the land to former slave owners.’ The Republicans gave, yet a Democrat took it away.
Part of the lawsuit is to ensure the Democrat Party is portraying their history truthfully and factually. It gives a list of 10 things the Democratic party was adamantly opposed to such as…the thirteenth amendment abolishing slavery, the civil rights act of 1866 giving blacks citizenship, the fifteenth amendment giving all citizens the right to vote, The 1957 Civil Rights Act and the 1960 Civil Rights Act and many more. President Woodrow Wilson is a hero to the Democratic Party but in his presidency he allowed various officials to segregate the toilets, cafeterias, and work areas of their departments. One justification involved health: White government workers had to be protected from contagious diseases, especially venereal diseases, that racists imagined were being spread by blacks. In extreme cases, federal officials built separate structures to house black workers. Most black diplomats were replaced by whites; numerous black federal officials in the South were removed from their posts; the local Washington police force and fire department stopped hiring blacks. Wilson’s own view, as he expressed it to intimates, was that federal segregation was an act of kindness.” This is a very interesting article. Well worth reading it all.
