You do realize that the man depicted in this painting is most likely a Southern Democrat, and that the Republican party was formed to fight against slavery and to demand economic reforms to keep the government out of business? That the first presidential candidate of the party was Abraham Lincoln, the guy who fought the war to keep things like this picture shows from happening? Any up votes on this post, to me, shows a lack of understanding of American history and the ramifications of a liberal education.

Up until the post-World War II period, the party’s hold on the region was so entrenched that Southern politicians usually couldn’t get elected unless they were Democrats. But when President Harry S. Truman, a Democratic Southerner, introduced a pro-civil rights platform at the party’s 1948 convention, a faction walked out.

These defectors, known as the “Dixiecrats,” held a separate convention in Birmingham, Alabama. There, they nominated South Carolina Governor Strom Thurmond, a staunch opposer of civil rights, to run for president on their “States’ Rights” ticket. Although Thurmond lost the election to Truman, he still won over a million popular votes.

It “was the first time since before the Civil War that the South was not solidly Democratic,” Goldfield says. “And that began the erosion of the southern influence in the Democratic party.”

After that, the majority of the South still continued to vote Democratic because it thought of the Republican party as the party of Abraham Lincoln and Reconstruction. The big break didn’t come until President Johnson, another Southern Democrat, signed the Civil Rights Act in 1964 and the Voting Rights Act in 1965.

Ok, and what does that have to do with the picture and the implication that all the people that support the current administration are racist? 1948 is a long time from the early to mid 1800s. I live in the south and I don't think a single person I know would ever own another human being.
