This has always been a mystery to me, and I don't think this article does anything to explain it to me.

Lincoln was a Republican.
Martin Luther King was a Republican.
Jackie Robinson was a Republican.
The KKK were Democrats.
Jim Crow was put in place by Democrats.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was supported by a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats.

And the outcome is that Democrats are God's gift to black folks and Republicans are racist bastards who hate black people.

How the heck did that happen??

It was the media and academe.

Wish I could quote chapter and verse, but there is a section in the new National Service Act that specifies a $500/mo stipend. The next line specifies that the stipend for minorities is to be $750/mo.

I am certain that every single new bill being pushed through right now contains similar provisions. I have heard that welfare and food stamp stipends have also increased, but, AFAIK, this can vary by state and even by county and so far I have not heard of discrimination in favor of skin color in those programs.
