Martin Luther King was a Republican but, shhhh, don't tell Blacks.
Democrats keep Blacks under their entitlement programs soley to buy votes while Republicans are eager to help Blacks become self-sufficient and have better lives but, shhhh, don't tell Blacks.
It's time Blacks are told!
They then became THE Democrat party with 40% of the voting power in the areas controlled by Democrats.
They aren't blacks anymore and haven't been for several decades ~ they are DEMOCRATS!
