204. I can only speak for family experience

Black men in the South that COULD vote - who lived in places where they could because no one dared tried to stop them -for example - my paternal Grandfather (born at the turn of the last century) . . .

Were staunch Republicans for a reason.

He detested the Democratic Party and knew they were out to get him. We still have some Harding memorabilia floating around in the old house in Alabama that my second oldest Aunt lives in today.

Black folks back then knew the Dems hated their guts. To not point that out - the descendents of these folks who know this about our FAMILY members - family members who bounced us on their knee and let us drive their old trucks on the farm -

Is to deny the history of the Democratic Party.

It's what make us unique. If we could transform affluent blacks that weren't being disenfranchised - then we can transform other groups.

And if you were the child/grandchildren of slaves that were defiant and snubbed their noses at TBT and got ahead - you knew where you got your bread buttered 90/100 years ago.

Why can't we tell this truth. It's what makes the Democratic Party fantastic that we transform people by INCLUSION of how they have experienced America.


ETA - a little from Hardings wiki page - notice the anti-lynching support

Domestically, Harding signed the first federal child welfare program, and dealt with striking mining and railroad workers in part by supporting an 8-hour work day. He created the Bureau of the Budget to prepare the first United States federal budget. Harding advocated an anti-lynching bill to curb violence against African Americans, but it failed to pass Congress. In foreign affairs, Harding spurned the League of Nations and negotiated peace treaties with Germany and Austria. His greatest foreign policy achievement came in the Washington Naval Conference of 1921-22, in which the world's major naval powers agreed on a naval limitations program that held sway for a decade.


And thanks for making such strong points on this sub thread.
