Here's something I'll wager that we don't hear about from Al Sharpton, or Jesse Jackson, or Sheila Jackson Lee, or Jeremiah Wright, or Barack Hussein Obama, or the NAACP, or any Democrat for that matter. Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ), a Democrat and civil rights icon, speaking while aboard Air Force One about his "Great Society" to two sympathetic governors, said, "I'll have them niggers voting Democratic for two hundred years."
LBJ also said (emphasis mine):
These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.
I know that LBJ's language was/is offensive, but hey -- LBJ was an offensive guy!
Civil rights, indeed! LBJ had only one purpose in mind, was doing nothing more than out-and-out vote buying. And what's worse is that blacks (and liberal whites) bought it.
Of black Americans, 44 percent consider themselves to have a moderate political viewpoint, and only 28 percent consider themselves liberals. It was, along with LBJ's efforts, the association of civil rights legislation with John F. Kennedy (JFK) and LBJ that solidified black loyalty to the Democrat Party. JFK proposed and LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. No Republican presidential candidate has gotten more than 15 percent of the black vote since.
