Do not misinterpret what I am saying because I am not for any party and I mean any. While some might say that the Old Republican Party freed slaves, they still allowed segregation, lynching, etc. Also, when LBJ manuvuered and had the Civil Rights Bill of 1964 passed by the US Congress, The Dixiecrats (most) went to the GOP. As far as I am concerned, there is no party that is for Black people nor anything that will truly benefit improvement of the living conditions of Black people in this country which is one of the reasons I do not look to politics nor politicians as problem solvers. They are a problem themselves. If we Black people would abandon the political process altogether until we build ourvelves up, we would see a marked improvement just working with each other. Of course I am not talking about all of us, just those of us who are about obtaining some of this good Earth that we can call our own and utilize it to build for ourselves.
