CHARLOTTE, N.C. Rep. John Lewis used his Thursday convention speech to argue that a GOP victory in November will send African-Americans back to the early 1960s, when he and other Africans-Americans were forcibly denied access to restaurants, public transportation and the ballot box.
Ive seen this before, I lived this before, he claimed, after extensively describing his activism in Southern states in the 1950 and 1960s.
We were met by an angry mob that beat us and left us lying in a pool of blood, he said to raucous applause from roughly 20,000 delegates and activists.
Brothers and sisters, do you want to go back? he called, prompted a loud response of No!
Or do you want to keep America moving forward? he asked Sept. 6 to raucous applause from roughly 20,000 delegates and activists.

Do they not know how ignorant and backward they appear? They sound like they stepped out of a 1930s movie.
They know, but they really don’t care.
These people ( democrats) are plain mad....... And I do mean the crazy kind of mad!
Lewis is an old racebaiting loon. He’s like a buggy whip. His days are long gone.
No Posining of the wells?
No Return of the Black Death?
How about forcing Autistic School Kids do a live fire reenactment the Battle of Paschendale?
There is no such thing as an allegation too outrageous!
Any lie to scare the crap out of Holder's people and any "white guilt" folks still ignorant enough to believe this crap.
If the collective intelligence of the people listening to this clown could be placed into a container it would appear as if it were a bb in a railroad boxcar.
This superannuated moron should be careful what he wishes for because in the great scheme of things it is white peoples taxes (and other responsible citizens) that keep his race afloat. He’s just another court jester
Most well to do black people are on the public payroll so when they pay taxes they are only kicking back part of their salary
It is a disgrace for him to say such things. Makes a mockery of the past suffering.
Segregation? Why stop there why not slavery and cannibalism and throw in some malaria or ebola.
The idiot masses that listen to him are unaware that the democrats were the ones that kept them on the plantation and in the back of the bus.
He needs to acquaint himself with Col. Frances Rice (Ret.), who shares his pigmentation but not his pea-brain. She wrote an open letter to democrats outlining their bigotry.
In other words,”WE The People”must elect a”Person of Color”to Presidency from here on in or else will will slide back into segregation and RACISM????Whay would Dr. King make of that????I think he’d call it for what it is:”RACISM”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No, that’s NOT all!
Shutting down the liquor industry!
Coffe, tea and sodas with caffeine will have to go!
All Tobacco products- bye-bye!
How about 1916,when Wilson was show”The Birth of a Nation”at The White House??By the way,Woodrow Wilson was an RACIST DemonRaT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What? The Democrats going to take over the South again?
As God is my witness, I will never, ever, ever, ever give a crap a racism ever again.
I’m done. These a$#$holes have cried “Wolf” thousands of times too many.
Legitimate cases of racism will pass through my mind uncared about: I am blanking the entire concept out of my thought process and will refuse to acknowledge it.
Good job, you race-baiting sons-of-bitches.
Yes, then we would put them on an island and watch them capsize.
I feel like I was playing Monopoly and instead of pulling the Advance Token to Boardwalk I pulled the Race Card.
Whereas the Democratic Party has never apologized for their horrific atrocities and racist practices committed against African Americans during the past two hundred years, nor for the residual impact that those atrocities and practices and current soft bigotry of low expectations are having on us today...”
READ it, Mr. Lewis and then, go change your Depends.
