[Charisma News] There’s no doubt that racism still goes on today. As we celebrate Black History Month this February, it’s important we realize that and look for ways to move forward and improve our systems. But equally true is that what the media tells us about racism isn’t necessarily true, including what they say about Republicans. Instead, historically speaking, the Democratic Party has often oppressed African Americans.
Nina May, whom I actually interviewed for my book, God, Trump and the 2020 Election, has researched this topic thoroughly and has some incredible insights. She wrote, produced and directed a documentary 15 years ago called Emancipation, Revelation, Revolution about the history of the civil rights movement in America. (She also recently came out with a Christian romantic comedy called First Lady, which you can read more about here.)
“Part of it is what happens to conservative blacks today who leave that liberal plantation and embrace the party of Lincoln,” she says about the documentary. “A lot of people don’t know that Abraham Lincoln was not just a Republican, but the very first Republican president that we had from the newly formed Republican Party, which was an abolitionist party. That was the main reason the Republican Party was formed.”
Nina says the Democratic Party hasn’t changed over the years—it’s always been a party of oppression, control and reduction of human rights.
