While the Republican Party is not my party, either, it bugs me to see all these commentors trash the party with righteous indignation — as if the Democratic party is the party of the people.
Purposeful or not, and to take the prime example, the black community has been decimated by policy from the Left. Republicans sometimes say outright racist things, so it’s easy to focus on this as dangerous. But the indirect damage to the black community since the 60s is immeasurable and the people most responsible for this are not Republicans. People just scapegoat the Republicans because it’s easy and people aren’t able to see the connections.
