There is a solid case for the republican party being the party of white supremacy based on it's actions and it also shows with their attempts at voter suppression which targets African American voters. Republican party needs to understand that black folks and other minorities have just as much right as white folks to vote and stop passing un-necessary laws that target African Americans and other minorities which prevent them from exercising their legitimate right to vote.
Republicans are just going to have to learn they truly and genuinely must share power with others, allow others to have a voice too and that political office is not their birthright. Political office is for Americans who are elected in by the people in genuinely fair and honest elections that are not manufactured in such way to get a result republicans want. Republican just going to have to learn that power is not their birth right and not to interfere with stopping and preventing genuinely fair elections and let the people be heard. The democratic process must be allowed to take it's course and for the will of the people to be heard.
Republicans did not evict the Democrats from the South until close to the end of the 20th Century. From the beginning of the 20th Century till just about the close of that century the Democratic Party dominated the South. And I am not talking about just the label "Democrat". I dont know whether the Democratic Party- ante or post bellum- was ever the Party of big business; but by Woodrow Wilson, and definitely by FDR the Democratic Party was ideologically to the left and a champion of the under class.
That is where the contradiction comes in. I dont blame the Democratic Party for the contradictions; the contradictions go straight to human imperfections. Yet, and undeniably, it is mind boggling that the same progressive party, the party of new deal, the party of worker rights, the party of social safety nets was also the Party of the Ku Klux Klan, the Party that enacted Jim Crow Laws. This was the case from the beginning of the 20th Century to close to the end of the century, at which point the Democrats were evicted from the South by Republicans.
Granted, the Republicans evicted the Democrats by championing the prejudices of the white southerners. I am not blaming the Democrats or Republicans for that; it is just the ugly truth that that is, or was the prize to be paid for the votes of the Southern whites.
You have to get out of the Logic of colour. Much of what you rail against are not really colour dependent at all. It is more class than colour.
The upper and propertied class of any society is always gonna be smaller in numbers than the lower and poor class. What that means is that the poor have the numbers, the rich dont. But the problem for progressive parties that champion the poor is that it is hard to get the scum, the Joe Sixpacks, the trailer trash types to go out to vote; wherein lies the advantage of the upper, educated and propertied class whose ranks can turn up to vote with much less persuasion.
Given all that, it is immediately clear what each Party has to do. And this is true for all societies.
The Popular Parties- in your case, your Democrats- must relax the rules of voting, expand access, open up the graves for the ghosts to step out and head to the polling boothes, allow absentee votings, maybe even allow proxy votings, dispense with identifications.... just about anything that can facilitate the dregs of humanity whose votes they rely upon. Nothing wrong with that. The poor are the bread and butter of the Popular Parties; facilitating their access to the polls is a key to success.
The Patricians, or Optimates if you will- the dreaded Republicans you despise so much, of which I am one- also have their work cut out for them: they must tighten the rules; if the poor dont like snow and rain, then select stormy days for voting; demand identifications, since the constituents of the Popular Parties are more likely to not inconvenience themselves with silly things like ID cards; advocate for property qualifications, which if successful will disenfranchise chunks of the Popular class; advocate for educational qualifications, which if successful will also disenfranchise whole chunks of the Popular class whose ranks are thick with illiterates and high school dropouts.
That, my good Political_Observer, are the facts of life. I can bet you, if by some magic we can make of the United States of America a black republic- everything remaining the same, except all faces are black- the rich, educated and propertied blacks will resort to the same methods and tactics to overcome the numbers advantage of the lower and poorer class of blacks.
If you believe it is a white defect can you point me out a black republic in the world where the propertied blacks are not resorting to same tactics and methods to keep the poorer blacks down?
