Reparations in politics

I did answer your question - you have to actually read the reply to find what it is.

Is it your position then, that the democrat party does not owe reparations for what it did because of other things it has done that ameliorate slavery? If so, why then should anyone of lesser or no guilt in the matter be expected to pay reparations?

You're missing the point of the meme. Don't give me this bs about dodging your question. It is irrelevant. Furthermore the republicans are not today or in the past a party of oppression, just because you may disagree with some of their policies. I don't think you can name a single issue today that is of the same import as slavery was and which doesn't have a logical counter argument.

The answer to your original question, given the context, the republicans. The democrats were the slave owners party, created the kkk, enacted segregation, opposed civil rights etc etc. The multiple answers were simply to back that up as from your question I assumed you were ignorant of history..

When the bill came before the full Senate for debate on March 30, 1964, the "Southern Bloc" of 18 southern Democratic Senators and one Republican Senator led by Richard Russell (D-GA) launched a filibuster to prevent its passage.[
