Republicans are racist, right? Wrong. The Democrats are and have always been the party of racism, intolerance and even slavery.
The left’s penchant for unrepentant racism began as early as 1857, when Democrat Supreme Court Justice Roger Taney issued an appalling ruling in the infamous Dred Scott case stating that blacks were not rightful citizens of the United States but rather property.
“In the opinion of the court, the legislation and histories of the times, and the language used in the Declaration of Independence, show, that neither the class of persons who had been imported as slaves, nor their descendants, whether they had become free or not, were then acknowledged as a part of the people, nor intended to be included in the general words used in that memorable instrument,” he wrote, according to a copy of the ruling maintained by the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Even after the culmination of the Civil War, which pitted Republican President Abraham Lincoln against the racist Southern Democrats, the bigotry and intolerance continued.
“Determined to re-capture the South, Southern Democrats redeemed state after state — sometimes peacefully, other times by fraud and violence,” PBS explained. “By 1877, when Reconstruction was officially over, the Democratic Party controlled every Southern state.The South remained a one-party region until the Civil Rights movement began in the 1960s.”
According to Democrats, it was around this point that the parties miraculously switched and former Democrats became Republicans and vice versa.
But like everything else the left has ever claimed or fought for, this too was wrong. The following video explains why:

Fewer than 1 percent of Democrats and Republicans actually switched. Moreover, the reasons for these sudden reversals had little to do with racism and much to do with economic concerns.
And like conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza brilliantly noted in the video above, “Today’s Democratic Party continues to use blacks for their political advantage.”
Except that whereas Democrats used to enslave blacks via chains, they now enslave them with failed welfare policies that only make their communities poorer.
Bruce Hornsby once sang, “That’s just the way it is — some things will never change.” The Democrats probably won’t, but we hope things will change for all of the people duped by them.
