Q&A: Why do Blacks and Latins vote Democrat?
Question by Just David: Why do Blacks and Latins vote Democrat?
I am conservative, but have wondered what led to the majority of blacks and latinos to vote Democrat when the Democrat Party was historically anti-minority, and it was Lincoln’s Republican Party that ended slavery and promoted civil rights. Is it confusion between “civil rights” promoted by republicans and “civil liberties” which are taken away by the ACLU-backed Democrats? You know, take away your right to self defense, to go to school where you want, etc. Thanks for your thoughtful factual answer. Here’s a source of fact worth reading: “The white primary in Texas treated the Democratic Party as a private club whose membership could be restricted to citizens of Anglo heritage. It originated as a change in Democratic Party practice early in the twentieth century as a way to disenfranchise African Americans, and later in south Texas, Mexican Americans. In 1923 the white primary became state law.” — source http://texaspolitics.laits.utexas.edu/html/vce/0503.html
