    Considering the Democrat Party is the party of the KKK and Jim Crow, I’d say Republicans are still coming out smelling like roses. Grand Cyclops of the KKK, Democrat Senator Byrd and Hillary Clinton agree.

      Not a bigot probably, but he oversaw racist policies, said black poverty was due to too many black men watching SportsCenter, increased deportations, and so on.

    Both of these presidents are known douchebags. This hardly means ALL presidents have been racist.

      Maybe not bigots personally... but how is someone a non-racist executive of a Jim Crow country or a slavery country or the commander in chief of removing Indians because you feel like controlling a swath of continent is your magical destiny?

      So who does that leave in the post Jim Crow era? Oops, not these two!

      Well, if you weren’t a racist in the Jim Crow era, you never would’ve been elected because that was how society worked at the time. The issue with Trump is that his racism is regressive, we don’t live in the Jim Crow era anymore.

      OP
      True, but we do live in the New Jim Crow era now where the Democrats (well, bi-partisan efforts) built up a huge prison system, police force, and immigration/homeland security repressive apparatus. They built the material infrastructure for Trumpism or some fascist movement at some point. Whole towns, people’s livelihoods now depend on the US state continuing to punish and imprison people.

      But I agree with you that there was little they could do subjectively - even as President - because of how the US was set up at various points.

      That’s why imo it took a war to end slavery and protest movements to actually bring down Jim Crow even after aspects of segregation were technically banned by courts (but not in actual practice).

    Let’s be real: Trump is far more racist than any of the past presidents, Andrew Jackson included

    Maybe that’s why they made the mightiest empire this earth has ever known. Not something any communist could brag about.

      The British Empire was still probably greater... and at least as racist if not more.

      Hard to maintain a genocidal empire without a generous amount of divide and rule and ethnic cleansing.
