|Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind. , speaks at a press conference about standing shoulder to shoulder against extremism of all kinds, a reaction to the House Homeland Security hearing, on Capitol Hill in Washington on Thursday, March 10, 2011.
Democratic Rep. Andre Carson told a Miami crowd last week that the Tea Party movement would "love" to see black Americans "hanging on a tree."
The comment is the latest charged remark made by a member of the Congressional Black Caucus as lawmakers tour the country talking about jobs. Carson, D-Ind., lamented at the event that the Tea Party was stopping "change," in an effort he said was reminiscent of the "Jim Crow" era.
"Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens," he said. "Some of them in Congress right now with this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me ... hanging on a tree."
The remarks were captured in a recording posted on YouTube. Carson spokesman Jason Tomcsi confirmed the congressman made the comment at a CBC jobs event -- he said Carson was prompted by "the frustration" voiced by people about the inability of Congress to lift up the economy.
"He believes that members of the Tea Party are ones that are standing in the way," Tomcsi told FoxNews.com. "He used the strong language because he believes that that agenda jeopardizes the most vulnerable."
The remark drew a rebuke from Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., the only black Republican in the Congressional Black Caucus, who said he's thinking about "reconsidering" his membership in the body in light of such comments.
"I think we should move away from using that type of language," West told Fox News, calling the remarks "reprehensible." He said some lawmakers are using the Tea Party as a "scapegoat" for broader problems.
This month, CBC member Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., also told a crowd that the "Tea Party can go straight to hell."

The truth is that "JIM CROW LAWS" were passed by demokrooks to suppress the black vote. Conservatives who opposed such tyranny were referred to as being radicals.
The KKK was founded to be the paramilitary arm of the demokrook party to surpress the black vote. Conservatives who opposed such tyranny were referred to as being radicals.
Slavery was championed and defended by the demokrook party. Abolitionists who opposed such tyranny were referred to as being radicals.
Gun laws were written to oppress the ability of blacks to defend their selves and homes from cross burnings, crop burnings, hangings, lynchings, and other demokrook KKK recreational activities. Conservatives who opposed such tyranny were referred to as being radicals.
Now, today, inner city blacks and poor whites are warehoused in crime infested ghettos and kept in broken homes because the state subsidizes fathers being absent and punishes fathers being present ... educates/indoctrinates them in sub standard schools ... and keeps them in constant terror of leaving the last plantation. They even have several brothers acting as Uncle Tom poverty pimps to crack the whip and keep them in line ... such as Sharpton/Jackson/Farakhan/Wright/Obama. Conservatives who oppose such tyranny ae referred to as being radicals.
The verdict is that Andre Carson is a nut case.
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> The passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which was widely opposed by white Southerners, was the event that finally moved the majority of Southerners to the Republican Party on a national level. From the end of the Civil War to 1960 Democrats had solid control over the southern states in presidential elections, hence the term "Solid South" to describe the states' Democratic preference. After the passage of this act however their support on a presidential level shifted to the Republicans. Republican candidate Barry Goldwater won many of the "Solid South" states over Democratic candidate Lyndon Johnson in 1964, and this Republican support for those states continues to this day. It was also bolstered in the next two elections by the "Southern Strategy" of Richard Nixon.</div></div>
You are either ignorant or playing dumb if you don't know this.

I'm neither ... but you are clueless.
The CRA was opposed by southern demokrooks ... not by a majority of southerners.
The CRA was supported by the republicans ... while the demokrook governors of Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas did everything they could do block blacks from having equal rights.
But, simply because I love showing what a tool you are ... JIM CROW LAWS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_crow_laws):
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">During the Reconstruction period of 1865–1877, federal law provided civil rights protection in the U.S. South for "freedmen" – the African Americans who had formerly been slaves. <span style='font-size: 11pt'>In the 1870s,white Democrats gradually returned to power in the Southern states, sometimes as a result of elections in which paramilitary groups intimidated opponents, attacking blacks or preventing them from voting. Gubernatorial elections were close and disputed in Louisiana for years, with extreme violence unleashed during the campaigns. In 1877, a national compromise to gain Southern support in the presidential election resulted in the last of the federal troops being withdrawn from the South. White Democrats had regained political power in every Southern state. These, white, Democratic Redeemer governments legislated Jim Crow laws, segregating black people from the white population.</span>
Blacks were still elected to local offices in the 1880s, but the <span style='font-size: 11pt'>establishment Democrats were passing laws to make voter registration and electoral rules more restrictive, with the result that political participation by most blacks and many poor whites began to decrease.</span> Between 1890 and 1910, <span style='font-size: 11pt'>ten of the eleven former Confederate states, starting with Mississippi, passed new constitutions or amendments that effectively disfranchised most blacks and tens of thousands of poor whites through a combination of poll taxes, literacy and comprehension tests</span>, and residency and record-keeping requirements. Grandfather clauses temporarily permitted some illiterate whites to vote.
Voter turnout dropped drastically through the South as a result of such measures. <span style='font-size: 11pt'>For example, Alabama had tens of thousands of poor whites disfranchised. In Louisiana, by 1900, black voters were reduced to 5,320 on the rolls, although they comprised the majority of the state's population. By 1910, only 730 blacks were registered, less than 0.5 percent of eligible black men. "In 27 of the state's 60 parishes, not a single black voter was registered any longer; in 9 more parishes, only one black voter was."</span> The cumulative effect in North Carolina meant that <span style='font-size: 11pt'>black voters were completely eliminated from voter rolls during the period from 1896-1904. The growth of their thriving middle class was slowed. In North Carolina and other Southern states, there were also the effects of invisibility: "[W]ithin a decade of disfranchisement, the white supremacy campaign had erased the image of the black middle class</span> from the minds of white North Carolinians."
<span style='font-size: 11pt'>Those who could not vote were not eligible to serve on juries and could not run for local offices. They effectively disappeared from political life, as they could not influence the state legislatures, and their interests were overlooked. While public schools had been established by Reconstruction legislatures for the first time in most Southern states; those for black children were consistently underfunded compared to schools for white children</span>, even when considered within the strained finances of the postwar South. The decreasing price of cotton kept the agricultural economy at a low.
In some cases, progressive measures intended to reduce election fraud, such as the eight box law in South Carolina, acted against black and white voters who were illiterate, as they could not follow the directions. While the separation of African Americans from the general population was becoming legalized and formalized during the Progressive Era (1890s–1920s), it was also becoming customary. Even in cases in which Jim Crow laws did not expressly forbid black people to participate, for instance, in sports or recreation, the laws shaped a segregated culture.
In the Jim Crow context, the presidential election of 1912 was steeply slanted against the interests of black Americans. <span style='font-size: 11pt'>Most blacks still lived in the South, where they had been effectively disenfranchised, so they could not vote at all. While poll taxes and literacy requirements banned many poor or illiterate Americans from voting, these stipulations frequently had loopholes that exempted white Americans from meeting the requirements. In Oklahoma, for instance, anyone qualified to vote before 1866, or related to someone qualified to vote before 1866 (a kind of "grandfather clause"), was exempted from the literacy requirement; the only persons who could vote before that year were white male Americans. White Americans were effectively excluded from the literacy testing, whereas black Americans were effectively singled out by the law.</span>
<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Woodrow Wilson, a Southern Democrat</span> and the first Southern-born president of the post-Civil War period, <span style='font-size: 11pt'>appointed Southerners to his Cabinet. Some quickly began to press for segregated work places, although Washington, D.C. and federal offices had been integrated since after the Civil War.</span> In 1913, for instance, the Secretary of the Treasury William Gibbs McAdoo – an appointee of the President – was heard to express his opinion of black and white women working together in one government office: "I feel sure that this must go against the grain of the white women. Is there any reason why the white women should not have only white women working across from them on the machines?"
<span style='font-size: 17pt'>Wilson introduced segregation in federal offices, despite much protest. He appointed segregationist Southern politicians because of his own firm belief that racial segregation was in the best interest of black and white Americans alike.</span> </div></div>
Anything else I can help you with?
The left doesnt like their history. So they must rewrite it.
Are you claiming the Dem Party today represents the same values as the Dixiecrats? That's insane. Political parties evolve over time. With knowledge comes understanding, except for you.

Absolutely, except that they had and have only one value ... gaining and maintaining power.
That objective was achieved by enslaving blacks, then by intimidating blacks, then by disenfranchising blacks, and now warehousing blacks ... but always by controlling the black race and the black vote.
