Pro

The Democratic Party was founded in 1828 by the most ruthless and dangerous of all US President, Andrew Jackson Indian murderer, White supremacist, Slave trader. Jackson owned a plantation with over 300 slaves which he wiped regularly to maintain discipline. Jackson founded the Democratic Party to protect promote and expand slavery as well as US territory's beyond Mexican and Indian lands.
It was the Democrats who waged war against the NativeAmericans. It was the Democrats who forced them off their lands, And forced them to a winter march in what became the " Trail of Tears " straight into camps. It was the Democrats who broke every treaty with them. It was the Democrats who started an unjust war with Mexico and annex over half of their land. It was the Democrats who ruled against the slave Dred Scott. It was the Democrats both North and South who owned all the slaves ( not including slaves owned by the 3000 free blacks who owned slaves nor the various Indian tribes that traded black slaves ) Not a single Republican ever owned a slave owned a slave! Not one! Ever! ( U. S. Grant doesn't count. At the time he inherited a slave from his wife side, US Grant was a Democrat) It was the Democrats who seceded and formed the Confederacy. It was the Democrats who founded the Ku Klux Klan. It was the Democrats who lynched, Terrorized blacks. It was the Democrats who passed every single Jim Crow laws and opposed every single anti Lynching legislation. The whole purpose of the 1960s Civil Rights movement was to restore the exact same rights Republicans gave Blacks a century prior but were stripped of by the Democrats through their Jim Crow laws.
The Democrats Party has never apologized for a century and a half of slavery, Rape, Murder, Lynching, Racial terrorism, Oppression, Segragation, Succession and they never will. Instead they project their historical sins to the true party of freedom the Republican Party who fought them every step of the way.

Con

You failed to mention the historic political realignment during the Civil Rights movement, Where racist Southern Democrats or Dixiecrats abandoned the party and became Republicans. Granted, Both of the parties were anti-black then, But it was the Northern Democrats who realigned the party to fight with blacks.

Hey, Those links you posted are exposing how the Republican party exploited racism. Through the Republican Party electoral strategy to increase political support among white voters in the South by appealing to racism against African Americans in what is known as their "Southern Strategy"

Thats not fair to post those articles showing how the republican party is responsible for so much evil in this country. Now people are going to think that republicans are racist because you posted facts proving they are

Do you by any chance know what year the Democrats founded the Ku Klux Klan? I think I remember hearing something about the KKK at the Democrat Convention in 1924, That at the time was nicknamed the "klanbake"

Do you know anything about that?
