A member of the political party responsible for the emancipation of black slaves in the early 1860's, and passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1957 granting black people the equal right to voting access. Despite this, and the fact that the Democratic party opposed both emancipation, the Civil Rights Act of 1957, and the more broad-sweeping Civil Rights Act of 1964, all Republicans are, in fact, racist. Despite a 150 year history of opposing equal rights for black people and supporting slavery, all Democrats are, in fact, not racist. An example of a racist Republican might be George W. Bush (it is well known that Bush "doesn't care about black people"), or Trent Lott, who thought that Strom Thurmond, a former Dixiecrat who opposed desegregation, would have made a good president. An example of a non-racist Democrat might be Senator Robert Byrd, a former Ku Klux Klan member, or the original racist Republican himself: Strom Thurmond, who was a Democrat until 1964.
"Damn that racist Republican Abraham Lincoln!"
