Can someone square this circle for me? Please.

As a non-US citizen looking from the outside, I find it odd that blacks, women, and minorities support the US’ Democratic Party. Given the history and ideology of the Democrats, I’m not sure as to why this is the case.

I also don’t understand why Republicans are often labelled bigots and racists when most racist and atrocious things in history came from The Democrats. Can this be the reason why Democrats and their Leftist allies want to tear down statues and revise history?
