The Democrats claim to be the champions of minorities. In reality, they champion minorities like an overseer champions slaves.
Two major cornerstones of the 1960's civil rights era were the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. I've read troll comments that Republicans did not vote for either. In truth, Republicans in the Senate and House voted for both in greater percentages of members than the Democrats. In all cases, without Republican support, the bills would have failed as Republicans put the bills over the 50 percent requirement.
