Did The Parties Switch Sides?

The Claim:

Blacks switched from Supporting the Republican Party to Supporting the Democrat Party immediately after passage of the 1965 Civil Rights Act.

Why?

Because Immediately After Voting on the CRA of 1965, Civil Rights Republicans became Democrats, and historically racist Democrats became Republicans. Blacks responded, running from the racists.

The Facts

The black community did not switch to voting for democrats after 1965. They switched in the 1930s, 30 years earlier. The first Democrat presidential candidate to receive a majority of the black vote was FDR in 1936.

“From 1865 to 1936…approximately 90 percent of blacks voted Republican and only 10% voted Democratic.”

“By 1936, 75 percent of blacks became Democrats. This trend has only continued since then…” Hillary’s America

Debunking the claim that Immediately After 1965 Republicans became Democrats, and historically racist Democrats became Republicans.

  • Leaders of the KKK
  • Leaders of other racist groups
  • Democrat Congressmen from 1860-2000
  • Democrat Senators from 1860-2000
