    Dems supported civil rights.  1948 was a big year.  The Dixiecrats.  FDR was pressured by the RR union guy, Randolph, to do an executive order ending discrimination in fed defense jobs, but a lot before that was bad.  Social Security deliverately left out domestic workers, which meant many black workers in the south were outside it.

    Wallace was not a good example because by the early 1960s, Dems outside the south were supporting civil rights.  Goldwater won much of the Deep South in 1964.

    But certainly beofre 1948 and maybe for parts of the 50s, Dems were not very good.

      all this "soul of the party" and "brand of the party" is BS to my ears.  

      things change, is the only constant.

        The people who supported the King of England in the American revolution were the same people who started the Civil War and who own the corporations (don't mistake corporations for anything other than the very few people who own and profit profusely from them, the same people who steal all productivity for their own personal gain).

        The protesters against the American Revolution have never stopped hating Americans and have profited greatly from all types of slavery. Now they've purchased people like Frank Luntz to distort and confuse our language.
