Black people vote Democrat because they know Republicans fucking despise them.
As opposed to Democrats who glad-hand blacks without ever doing anything significant to help them.
What Steam said.
You don't get the call Dems do-nothings when you Chicken Little THE END OF AMERICA every time they try to pass health insurance reform or raise the minimum wage.

Thought this was that Molotov Mitchel or whatever for a moment there.
Thankfully, despite this probably being exactly what he would say minus a few "from GOD" statements, it wasn't.
Actually, you could be thankful for it not being that dickhead in any capacity.

Notice the total absence of black civil rights leaders or segregationists in this tool's history lesson. Gee, he's uncomfortable with giving blacks even the slightest credit for their own liberation.
The Republican narrative has always been "we saved you ungrateful darkies from slavery, so you owe us your votes until the end of time." And they are honestly baffled with black people find that attitude insulting.
To a certain extent, the Republicans can claim the Civil Rights Act for their own. But they tend not to, which tells you something about where they're coming from.
They can lay claim to it in that, proportionally speaking, more Republicans than Democrats supported the Civil Rights Act ... but that's only because the South was almost completely Democratic, which meant a huge chunk of the Democrats were inherently opposed to the CRA. But if you're careful to compare Northern D's to Northern R's, and Southern D's to Southern R's, you'll find that Democrats in each region voted more heavily for the CRA than the comparable Republicans did.
We're still fighting the battle of the Civil Rights Act. Disillusioned Democratic racists eventually drifted over to the Republican Party, which barely even attempts to conceal its contempt for non-whites any longer. But this has meant the Democrats have been at a demographic disadvantage for decades, which is only slowly starting to turn around. Republicans are responding to that by cutting away at the Voting Rights Act, thus making it harder for minorities to vote.
As for LBJ, in the end less than 10% of Southern Democrats ended up voting for the Civil Rights Act, so frankly I wonder how he ever got a reputation as a master arm-twister. Dude couldn't even make his own party follow him.

The Second Party System, The Third Party System, The Fourth Party System, The Fifth Party System, and now possibly the Sixth Party System.
The progression of and morphing of parties in America confounds people from both sides of the spectrum.

Is...is he supposed to be a parody of Republicans?
Or...is he trying to be self-deprecating?
Wait, is this serious then?

24 seconds. I made it 24 seconds.
Just take my stars.
I don't wanna, I'm scared.
Let me get my courage up...
*sigh* Okay, I did.
It wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be.
In fact, it's pretty lame.
He's basically saying that Republicans aren't racist because they're not, and Democrats are racist because they are, while providing absolutely no evidence for either argument.
At the end of the day, it's what Brendon Small would call a W-O-T: Waste O' Time.
5 lame stars.

Democrats are the REAL Republicans.
I guess they don't teach everyone that in 6th grade history like our history teacher did.

Cliff's brother is a real dick.
Actually, if you do some research on John Ratzenberger's political beliefs, he's not far from this guy.

5 for bringing us together on this race thing by raising the point we can all agree on: women are NUTS!

I guess nobody really ought to bring up the fact that their faction is made up of a marriage of convenience between the Nativists and the Whigs, right? Right?

Black should vote Republican because we're the party who freed the slaves and LINCOLN.
Presidential election of 1964? What happened in 1964? We're talking about EIGHTEEN sixty-four.
The Republican party: where being stuck 100 years in the past is a modern tradition.
