Republicans Will be Calling us "niggers" again

Bob Jones University reveres the Klu Klux Klan. According to the Bob Jones University American history textbook, "the [Ku Klux] Klan in some areas of the country tried to be a means of reform, fighting the decline in morality and using the symbol of the cross... In some communities it achieved a certain respectability as it worked with politicians."

Bob Jones University works with politicians, Republican politicians. It remains a regular stop for Republican presidential candidates along their campaign trail to obtain the votes of racists there and elsewhere.

Do you remember Selma and the hell blacks went through to obtain voting rights? Now the Republicans have gutted the Voting Rights Amendment. They have not stopped there in their quest to once again deny blacks the right to vote. They suppress the black vote using voter-ID laws, gerrymandering, placing too few polling stations in black neighborhoods resulting in hours waiting time to vote and other obstacles.

In place of lynching, Republicans have justified or condoned the police killings of innocent unarmed black people.

The Republicans have shown no respect for black people especially the black president of the The United States of America.

There is a pattern here. Republicans are taking us back to the past. This election year, if the Republicans win they will be calling us “niggers” again!
