Why did blacks start voting for Democrats

Recommended Posts

Post civil war black voted at a rate of 90 percent Republican.  The party that fought to free them earned their vote 


So when did blacks switch to voting Democrat and why.  The common missconseption is the 60s with lbj civil rights votes.  Which ironically was once again mostly Republicans who passed it.  The majority of Democrats voted against it.   But that wasn't the deal when they switched. 


It happened during the depression and fdr new deal.   Blacks where at a extreme poverty levels because of the DNC took the little bait they got from FDR.  90 percent of them switched over in exchange for new deal benefits.   Had nothing to do with slavery.
