“Woodrow Wilson, perhaps the most racist president in our history…”

 The Great Democratic Party Racist Tradition

Wilson’s record was an unmitigated disaster for race relations: a former Klan member who enjoyed telling racist jokes in public (to applause), he supported segregation to the hilt, including formally introducing segregation to the federal government. He appointed radically racist individuals to key positions, and his administration was one which allowed for the rise of exactly the kind of racist activity Harding and Coolidge had to confront. The Party Wilson left behind descended into a pit of racial crisis, with the “Klanbake” 1924 convention chock full of racist rhetoric, and even a cross burning.

Sounds strangely familiar…

Why do Blacks continue to support these guys…?
