You're so mis-informed, it's embarrassing.
Woah woah woah, careful there. You're tempting Beavis' dumb ass to come in here and lecture you how integral the Republicans were to the Civil Rights movement. Conveniently leaving out the fact that if the Republicans had truly been champions of civil rights, racists like Strom Thurmond wouldn't have left the Democratic party to join the dark side.
