I insist that you check this post from The Lone Ranger out.
It details the Republican party's fight against racism from the earliest days of the party until today.
The Left whines continuously about the Right "hijacking" this and "hijacking" that, but they have hijacked 150 years of our legacy.
I knew a lot of this stuff, but there's a whole hell of a lot that I never knew in that post.
Any Lefty who spouts the word "racist" should be forced to read this and respond to every bit of it.
