Conservative leader: Democratic Party is ‘party of the KKK’

The Raw Story

The founder of a movement to increase racial diversity within the Republican Party told a crowd of tea party supporters on Sunday that they weren’t racists because “the Democratic Party is the party of the KKK.”
...

Claver added: “They want to say your are the racist. No. No. If anybody is a racist, it’s [Texas Congresswoman] Shiela Jackson Lee! If anybody is a racist, it’s [Democratic Congressman] John Conyers! If anybody is a racist, it’s [South Carolina Congressman] James Clyburn! If anybody is a racist, it’s Jesse ‘castration’ Jackson! If anybody is a racist, it’s Al ‘shakedown’ Sharpton! They’re the racists! We’re their friends!”

Watch this video from CNN, broadcast Jan. 15, 2012.

I would agree with him that there are strong threads of social conservatism in minority communities. However, his statements about liberal policies being harmful are clearly wrong, at least in the aggregate. I do NOT agree that it is welfare and food stamps that have led to the social issues he alludes to. That is a viewpoint based on a very limited amount of the data available. My personal experience is that the greater impact is made in the teaching the kids what they can accomplish. Essentially, if you teach a thousand kids that they can't accomplish anything, you will be 60%-80% correct. OTOH, if you teach a thousand kids that they CAN accomplish anything they put an honest effort into accomplishing, you will be 60%-80%+ correct. Unfortunately, even if the kid, against all odds, has good teachers and good parents, there is still the influence of media, peer groups, hate groups, and oh by the way, the media.

If tomorrow every Black and Hispanic in the nation changed their political preference to republican, you would either see a new third party or, you would see a massive migration of Whites to the democratic party. Regardless of what morons like West or the clown in that story believe.

Thank you, CAFKIA. Your final paragraph is spot on. A good many southern Republicans were Democrats back in the days when they were the "party of the KKK" and jumped ship after the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts. Nixon and later Reagan figured out how to use that.

Thanks for mentioning West. That clown makes me grit my teeth when he talks. Well, he would if I had any.

Good exposition by CAFKIA. I would add economic conditions of a child's family and economic conditions in general as influences on a child's success.
