So I am at work super bored and just watched a documentary on the KKK. Now, I am going to say first that I am not racist and don't believe in their ideas. An interesting note though is that the democratic south at the time was what formed the KKK. And Abraham Lincoln who freed the slaves was at the time a republican. He freed them for votes though. And now, at least where I live, and especially with Obama in office. Black people always vote democratic. I know parties aren't exactly the same now as they were then, and no every single african american doesn't vote democratic, and that is not my point. But did it back fire or not? Because at the time of Lincoln he was actually considered a liberal by their standards (too most).

Again I am not voicing an opinion. Just some interesting stuff I just watched and thought, what better way to pass the time than a pit debate lol.

So...voice on, please no dumb racist shit.


another funny thing was though the government passed the KKK act which made it illegal for any two or more ppl to go under disguise and try and deprive another of civil rights......ummmm okay lol.....ie: the governments now?

imagine going to obama like citizens arrest!!!! you and the vp are depriving my rights under the kkk act

The Democratic and Republican parties are incredibly different today than what they were. It wasn't until the '60s that things started to get especially familiar.

Well the parties switched. FDR was kind of the beginning of the Democratic Party being the liberal-er one. But at the time FDR was still stuck dealing with the traditional southern democrats so a lot of his policies ended up being pretty racist. Like the New Deal? That largely excluded blacks from many if not most of the programs and benefits.

I think the final nail in the switcheroo coffin was Nixon. He basically appealed to the old timey Democrats and they switched over.

If you're interested in the history of the Klan...

Check out DJ Spooky's version of Birth of a Nation. There's more than just this clip...but basically Spooky put music over the original and added commentary.
http://www.djspooky.com/art/birth.html

Edit: The great thing about the Birth of a Nation is the intense irony of it.
The movie was based off of a book by Thomas Dixon Jr. The movie and book glamorized the Klan and basically is the origin of all anti-black stereotypes. The irony comes in when you learn that Dixon's beloved father and uncle helped form a chapter of the Klan in the area they lived. They both ended up fighting to disband that same chapter when they realized it was evil as Hell. The movie that spawned the rebirth of the KKK (it was reformed after a screening at Stone Mountain if I recall correctly) was written by a guy heavily inspired by people who fought against the original Klan.

And, for good measure, the KKK took my baby away.

That was Birth of a Nation & Wilson didn't film that.

It's already been said, but yeah, the parties basically switched. It was the Democrats at the time who never shut up about "states' rights," which the Republicans rightfully called out as a cover for maintaining blatantly racist and oppressive policy. Although, even then, they were pro-business. Over the years that aspect of their platform grew more and more dominant, and by the time you get to Richard Nixon/the Southern Strategy, the party had turned into the cynical, pandering pile of shit it is today.

But those old-school 'radical Republicans' like Charles Sumner were some of the best and most courageous people to have held political power in this country.
