As expected, some people in Social Media were not happy about by my Juneteenth meme. While mostly chose the ban button, a couple made comments and this one in particular is an old tired explanation sans explanation.

And then… Inspiration!

Hell, I believe this would more valid than all the BS they keep selling.

  1. My answer to “oh but the parties switched after the Civil Rights Act” is always “then explain to me why it took 40-50 years for the dominant party in the state legislatures to flip.”

    1. And why did it take Republican votes to pass the Civil Rights Act over the objection of powerful Southern Democrats like Robert Byrd (WV), James Eastland (MS) and William Fulbright (AR) even though LBJ tried to sell it as fulfilling the legacy of the martyred John F. Kennedy? As for LBJ he didn’t have an “Road to Damascus” epiphany. He saw that Blacks were a majority in the the “Solid South” and could no longer be relegated to second class citizen status (due in large part to national TV news coverage), and if the Democrat party wanted to retain power they needed to pry the Black votes from the Republican party. By pushing “Civil Rights” as a Democrat program, and buying Black votes with taxpayers money, he managed to pull it off.

      1. I’ve seen a comment attributed to LBJ — it sure would be good to find out if it is true. It claims that he said, when the Civil Rights bill was passed: “We’ve just purchased the n****r vote for the next 200 years”.

  2. The “Switch” was the Democrats going from the bigotry of Klan style White Supremacism with Jim Crow to the “bigotry of low expectations” style of White Supremacism with affirmative action, preferential hiring practices, and Critical Race Theory.

    Democrats before 1965: “Blacks are inferior, they must be segregated to their own schools, businesses, etc. so they don’t contaminate White communities.”

    Democrat after 1965: “Blacks are inferior, they must be given handouts, reduced standards, and ‘POC safe spaces’, that undermines their ability to fully participate as productive members of White society.”

  3. Hey Miguel, I’d like to follow you on bookface to watch the fire works first hand. Anyway to make that possible?
