It has been said that the Republican Party is the party of racism. However, recent events suggest otherwise. Recently, two Virginian officials, Governor Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring, who align with the Democratic Party were found to have worn blackface in their past. In fact, on Ralph Northam’s yearbook page he was seen in blackface next to someone in a K.K.K. uniform. Some have claimed that is wasn’t him in the photo, but Governor Northam had previously apologized for the photo saying, “I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo,” showing that he acknowledged he was in the photo. Moreover, Elizabeth Warren, a democratic senator for Massachusetts, has repeatedly claimed to be Native American. In fact, she even put it on college applications in order to advance herself in the political arena. Some might say that maybe she actually is Native American, but how would that make sense when all of her family members have identified as white on applications and other forms? It wouldn’t. This just shows the complete hypocrisy and racist nature of the Democratic Party. What they do not realize is that their party was the one that supported slavery during the Civil War while President Abraham Lincoln (republican) advocated for black rights.
