Examples please.

In the meantime, here's a reading assignment for you:

White primaries - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quote:
White primaries were primary elections in the Southern states of the United States of America in which only white voters were permitted to participate. White primaries were established by the Democratic Party or state legislatures in many Southern states after 1890, as part of a variety of methods used to achieve disfranchisement of most black and other minority voters.

[. . .]

White primaries were first used by Southern Democratic Parties in the late 19th century. Following the loss of power by the biracial coalition of Populists and Republicans to the Democrats, the Democrat-controlled state legislatures systematically adopted electoral rules in new constitutions or specific laws to entrench themselves in power and to disenfranchise black voters by making voter registration more difficult. A number of devices were used including poll taxes, residency requirements, record keeping requirements and literacy tests, while maintaining white votes by devices such as grandfather clauses. Many of these measures were discretionary and could be enforced inconsistently so as to maintain the votes of poor or illiterate whites.

As a result there was a dramatic drop in black voting across the South, and the white Democrats were successful in essentially establishing a one-party system in those states. With black citizens excluded from the registration process, they were also shut out of local offices, serving on juries, and other civil offices.

To further exclude blacks and other minorities from the political process, Texas and some other states established white primaries, a "selectively inclusive" system that permitted only whites to vote in the primaries, or by legally considering the general election as the only state-held election, and giving white members of the Democratic Party control of the decision-making process within the party and the state. Because the Democratic Party dominated the political systems of all the Southern states after Reconstruction, its state and local primary elections usually determined which candidate would ultimately win office in the general election.
The Democrats' Missing History - WSJ
Quote:
As Democrats prepare to nominate Sen. Barack Obama to be the first black president, the Democratic National Committee and its chairman, Howard Dean, have whitewashed the party's horrific and lengthy record of racism. The omission is in the section of the DNC Web site that describes the party's history. The missing history raises the obvious question of whether the Democrats, unable or simply unwilling to put their party on record as taking direct responsibility for one of the worst racial crimes of the ages, will be able to run a campaign free of the racial animosities it has regularly brought both to American presidential campaigns and American political and social life in general.
Race and Party Politics, Part I ? The 1964 Civil Rights Act | The Other Half of History
Quote:
In the Senate a determined group of Democrats conducted a 57 day filibuster in an effort to kill the bill. At one point Senator Robert Byrd, a West Virginia Democrat who had been an “Exalted Cyclops” of the Ku Klux Klan, stood on the Senate floor and talked non-stop for over 14 hours as part of the effort to wear down the bill’s supporters. J. William Fulbright, a very liberal Democrat from Arkansas, and eventual mentor to an up-and-coming politician named Bill Clinton, participated in the filibuster. So did Al Gore Sr., a leading Democrat and the father of the party’s 2000 Presidential nominee.

Filibusters are not allowed in the House of Representatives, but a racist Democrat named Howard W. Smith used his position as chairman of the House Rules Committee to keep the House version of the bill from coming to the floor for debate. The House was able to debate the bill only after a majority of Representatives signed a “discharge petition” to force the matter.
Democrats Should Know Jim Crow, They Created Him | Human Events
Quote:
In 1832, the phrase “Jim Crow” was born. By 1900, every former Confederate state (including Wyoming, Missouri, Ohio, Utah, Kentucky, Kansas and Oklahoma) had enacted “Jim Crow” laws prohibiting everything from interracial marriage to racially integrated public school systems. These state laws served to place blacks back on a virtual plantation. Similar to the “Black Codes” that came before them, Jim Crow laws were numerous. However, one denominator codified their sound support in Southern states: They all resulted from Democratic legislators of the “Solid South.”

Maybe because they forget the KKK was mostly a Democratic organization.

Or that many of their rights came from Repulican initiatives.

But alas Repulicans don't give them enough "free sh1t" as the Democrats have, nor do Republicans portray the other political party as "racisis" who are THE black problem and the solution to their needs...

Repubicans don't "war" on blacks. Democrats live the lie and feed it to the blacks eveyday...

Seriously!

You guys don't give a crap about blacks.
You guys refuse to admit the problems they face with racism. Racism in our justice system. Racism in employment.

Repubs institute policies which suppress the black vote.

How's that for "examples"?

Good luck getting an answer to that question.
The best you'll get is them claiming blacks should vote Repub for stuff that happened half a millenia ago and more...

This is the part where partisan Democrats drag out the Republican racist canard. Let's see, the first black President, actually mixed race, gets 95% of the black vote for the splendid job he has done reducing black unemployment to be equivalent to the rate for whites. Oh wait after 6 years under Barack the Democrat protector against Republican racism, black unemployment is twice that of whites. But Obama has increased the labor participation rate hasn't he? Nope it is the lowest in 30 years.

In fact the Democrat Obama is peddling racism that proclaims black victimhood that can only be alleviated by another Federal handout or protection from the Federal government.

This is the part where some Repubs whine about racism when the people they are talking to never said anything about Repubs being racist...

Deckard was pointing out that the Repubs blame the victim instead of helping to address the inequality they face.
And instead of addressing the truth, you instead run off to make false allegations.
