Wrong on Race: The Democratic Partys Buried Past by Bruce Bartlett

In Wrong on Race, Bruce Bartlett sets the record straight on a hidden past that many Democrats would rather see swept under the carpet. Ranging from the founding of the Republic through to today, it rectifies the unfair perceptions of Americas two national parties. While Nixons infamous Southern Strategy is constantly referenced in the media, less well remembered are Woodrow Wilsons segregation of the entire Federal civil service; FDRs appointment of a member of the KKK to the Supreme Court; John F. Kennedys apathy towards civil rights legislation; and the ascension of Robert Byrd, who is current President pro tempore of the Senate, third in line in the presidential line of succession, and a former member of the KKK.
For the last seventy years, African Americans have voted en masse for one party, with little in the end to show for it. Is it time for the pendulum to swing the other way? With the Republican Party furiously engaged in pre-2008 soul searching, this exhaustively researched, incisively written exposé will be an important and compelling component of that debate as we head towards November.

Wrong on Race

On the tails of an election with the subject of race at the forefront, Wrong on Race uncovers a hidden past that many Democrats would rather see swept under the carpet. Ranging from the founding of the Republic through to today, it rectifies the unfair perceptions of America's two national parties. Kennedy's apathy towards civil rights legislation; and the ascension of Robert Byrd, who is current President pro tempore of the Senate, third in line in the presidential line of succession, and a former member of the KKK. Democrats have long acted behind an ethos of racial equality, yet, as Bartlett powerfully illustrates, the reality of their patchy record over the last two centuries in fact lends little credibility to that claim. Compelling and incisive.

No independent government of any form has ever been successful in their hands. In fact, for most of its history, the party created by Thomas Jefferson has been uniformly racist and right-wing. Subsequent Democratic presidents were just as intolerant. When James K. Polk took over the White House in , he fired the existing domestic and kitchen staff and replaced them with slaves. Politically, Polk declared in his Statue of the Union Address that Congress had no power to end slavery.

As everyone with any awareness of American political history knows, for about years starting in the midth century, the Democratic Party was the vehicle of choice for the white supremacist agenda that dominated the politics of the white south and that vast majority of the leading villains in the story of race in America were Democrats. That said, starting in the New Deal, the Democrats also became the preferred party of urban northern African-Americans and white liberals.

  1. In one of the more transparently ridiculous campaign ads of the cycle, the National Black Republican Association ran radio spots in Baltimore insisting that African-American voters should back the GOP, because Democrats were responsible for Jim Crow laws, the KKK, and releasing vicious dogs and fire hoses on civil-rights activists.

  2. Editorial Reviews. Review. “Bartlett's chronicle of the Democratic Party's sordid past offer[s] illuminating evidence that, despite great marks of progress, race's.
