"Separate But Equal" was made the law of the land as a result of the Plessy v Ferguson decision. These "Jim Crow Laws" would separate everyone in public life on the basis of race. Although they were separate, there was definitely no equality. Often, it would be the black citizens who would have the least.

In which John Green teaches you about Reconstruction. After the divisive, destructive Civil War, Abraham Lincoln had a plan to reconcile the country and make it whole again. Then he got shot, Andrew Johnson took over, and the disagreements between Johnson and Congress ensured that Reconstruction would fail. The election of 1876 made the whole thing even more of a mess, and the country called it off, leaving the nation still very divided. John will talk about the gains made by African-Americans in the years after the Civil War, and how they lost those gains almost immediately when Reconstruction stopped. You'll learn about the Freedman's Bureau, the 14th and 15th amendments, and the disastrous election of 1876. John will explore the goals of Reconstruction, the successes and ultimate failure, and why his alma mater Kenyon College is better than Raoul's alma mater NYU.

Sometimes, a single decision can change the course of history. Join journalist and author Isabel Wilkerson as she tells the story of the Great Migration, the outpouring of six million African Americans from the Jim Crow South to cities in the North and West between World War I and the 1970s. This was the first time in American history that the lowest caste people signaled they had options and were willing to take them -- and the first time they had a chance to choose for themselves what they would do with their innate talents, Wilkerson explains. "These people, by their actions, were able to do what the powers that be, North and South, could not or would not do," she says. "They freed themselves."

The Republicans? Or, the Democrats? Most people would probably say the Democrats. But this answer is incorrect. Since its founding in 1829, the Democratic Party has fought against every major civil rights initiative, and has a long history of discrimination. The Democratic Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, opposed Reconstruction, founded the Ku Klux Klan, imposed segregation, perpetrated lynchings, and fought against the civil rights acts of the 1950s and 1960s. In contrast, the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an anti-slavery party. Its mission was to stop the spread of slavery into the new western territories with the aim of abolishing it entirely. This effort, however, was dealt a major blow by the Supreme Court. In the 1857 case Dred Scott v. Sandford, the court ruled that slaves aren’t citizens; they’re property. The seven justices who voted in favor of slavery? All Democrats. The two justices who dissented? Both Republicans. The slavery question was, of course, ultimately resolved by a bloody civil war. The commander-in-chief during that war was the first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln – the man who freed the slaves. Six days after the Confederate army surrendered, John Wilkes Booth, a Democrat, assassinated President Lincoln. Lincoln’s vice president, a Democrat named Andrew Johnson, assumed the presidency. But Johnson adamantly opposed Lincoln’s plan to integrate the newly freed slaves into the South’s economic and social order. Johnson and the Democratic Party were unified in their opposition to the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery; the 14th Amendment, which gave blacks citizenship; and the 15th Amendment, which gave blacks the vote. All three passed only because of universal Republican support. During the era of Reconstruction, federal troops stationed in the south helped secure rights for the newly freed slaves. Hundreds of black men were elected to southern state legislatures as Republicans, and 22 black Republicans served in the US Congress by 1900. The Democrats did not elect a black man to Congress until 1935. But after Reconstruction ended, when the federal troops went home, Democrats roared back into power in the South. They quickly reestablished white supremacy across the region with measures like black codes – laws that restricted the ability of blacks to own property and run businesses. And they imposed poll taxes and literacy tests, used to subvert the black citizen’s right to vote. And how was all of this enforced? By terror -- much of it instigated by the Ku Klux Klan, founded by a Democrat, Nathan Bedford Forrest. As historian Eric Foner - himself a Democrat - notes: “In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party.” For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/inconvenient-truth-about-democratic-party

In which John Green teaches you about the early days of the Civil Rights movement. By way of providing context for this, John also talks a bit about wider America in the 1950s. The 1950s are a deeply nostalgic period for many Americans, but there is more than a little idealizing going on here. The 1950s were a time of economic expansion, new technologies, and a growing middle class. America was becoming a suburban nation thanks to cookie-cutter housing developments like the Levittowns. While the white working class saw their wages and status improve, the proverbial rising tide wasn't lifting all proverbial ships. A lot of people were excluded from the prosperity of the 1950s. Segregation in housing and education made for some serious inequality for African Americans. As a result, the Civil Rights movement was born. John will talk about the early careers of Martin Luther King, Thurgood Marshall, Rosa Parks, and even Earl Warren. He'll teach you about Brown v Board of Education, and the lesser known Mendez vs Westminster, the Montgomery Bus Boycott, and all kinds of other stuff.

JOIN PragerFORCE! For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: Once upon a time, every student of history – and that meant pretty much everyone with a high school education – knew this: The Democratic Party was the party of slavery and Jim Crow, and the Republican Party was the party of emancipation and racial integration. Democrats were the Confederacy and Republicans were the Union. Jim Crow Democrats were dominant in the South and socially tolerant Republicans were dominant in the North. But then, in the 1960s and 70s, everything supposedly flipped: suddenly the Republicans became the racists and the Democrats became the champions of civil rights. Fabricated by left-leaning academic elites and journalists, the story went like this: Republicans couldn't win a national election by appealing to the better nature of the country; they could only win by appealing to the worst. Attributed to Richard Nixon, the media's all-purpose bad guy, this came to be known as "The Southern Strategy." It was very simple. Win elections by winning the South. And to win the South, appeal to racists. So, the Republicans, the party of Lincoln, were to now be labeled the party of rednecks. But this story of the two parties switching identities is a myth. In fact, it's three myths wrapped into one false narrative. Let's take a brief look at each myth in turn. Myth Number One: In order to be competitive in the South, Republicans started to pander to white racists in the 1960s. Fact: Republicans actually became competitive in the South as early as 1928, when Republican Herbert Hoover won over 47 percent of the South's popular vote against Democrat Al Smith. In 1952, Republican President Dwight Eisenhower won the southern states of Tennessee, Florida and Virginia. And in 1956, he picked up Louisiana, Kentucky and West Virginia, too. And that was after he supported the Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education that desegregated public schools; and after he sent the 101st Airborne to Little Rock Central High School to enforce integration. Myth Number Two: Southern Democrats, angry with the Civil Rights Act of 1964, switched parties. Fact: Of the 21 Democratic senators who opposed the Civil Rights Act, just one became a Republican. The other 20 continued to be elected as Democrats, or were replaced by other Democrats. On average, those 20 seats didn't go Republican for another two-and-a-half decades. Myth Number Three: Since the implementation of the Southern Strategy, the Republicans have dominated the South. Fact: Richard Nixon, the man who is often credited with creating the Southern Strategy, lost the Deep South in 1968. In contrast, Democrat Jimmy Carter nearly swept the region in 1976 - 12 years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964. And in 1992, over 28 years later, Democrat Bill Clinton won Georgia, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia. The truth is, Republicans didn't hold a majority of southern congressional seats until 1994, 30 years after the Civil Rights Act.

According to GOP Gov. of Maine Paul LePage, U.S. Congressman John Lewis should be grateful for all that Republican presidents have done for black people. The white governor said that the black Democratic Georgia congressman needs a history lesson on how Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves and how Ulysses S. Grant and Rutherford B. Hayes fought against Jim Crow laws. Lewis is a civil rights leader who says he doesn't see Donald Trump as a "legitimate president." According to Colby professor Dan Shea, Jim Crow laws didn't exist during the Grant administration. In addition, an electoral deal that put Hayes in office led to the end of Reconstruction and the removal of federal troops. Those actions set the stage for the creation of Jim Crow laws that followed. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2017-01-17-US--Maine%20Governor/id-165473af785b4f82b24e94575e0d87d1 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

This video reviews facts from his boyhood, education, marriage, and finally discusses his many battles and victories won as leader of the Civil Rights Movement until his tragic death. His words live on as we contemplate his many important messages of equality, peace and love this Martin Luther King Jr. Day. LYRICS: Martin Luther King, Jr.'s life began like yours or mine, born in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1929. Martin Luther and Alberta Williams were his parents' names. With siblings Alfred and Willie Christine, Martin would play games. At Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, they were raised. Their father was "Minister King" where the congregation praised. Martin graduated from high school early, at age 15, and went to Morehouse College, grew in knowledge--though just a teen. He learned Thoreau protested slavery in 1849. Then at Crozer Seminary, he sought God's great design. He weighed the peaceful tactics Mahatma Gandhi used at every turn. Though he finished top of his class, he still had so much to learn. So off he went to study at Boston University; met and married his wife, Coretta Scott, in 1953. Learned theology, worked toward diversity, cared for the poor-- til he took a job as a pastor in 1954. T'was in Montgomery, Alabama, where hate was winning out, The whites claimed things were "separate, but equal," but Martin had his doubts. "Jim Crow Laws" enforced separation between the blacks and whites. Blacks sat in the back of the bus, violating human rights. In '55 Rosa Parks was arrested for sitting in the front. Without a doubt this historic event forged a battlefront. So Martin led a bus boycott; people walked to inspire a fix. To the protestors' glee, the laws were changed in '56. Martin continued to advocate for the NAACP*. He spoke of civil rights, as he traveled from sea to sea. Next he led the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, to help people toward the goal of fairness and tolerance. At the Lincoln Memorial he backed a Civil Rights Act, which later became a law that no one could redact. He staged "sit-ins" where blacks would sit in "white only" spaces. Arrests followed, as segregation fueled hate between the races. In Birmingham there were boycotts - against the businesses they protested. Laws had gone uncontested. Adults and children were beaten, fire-hosed, and tested. The people hoped for a change, but instead were arrested. The media caught it all: shown on every TV station.... heard on radio.... in the news.... and made an angry nation. Social and financial pressures were felt in Birmingham. It was time to change unfair laws, before they heard from Uncle Sam. In '63 JFK** introduced the Civil Rights Bill. King held a march in Washington to affirm the people's will. In King's famous "I Have a Dream" speech, Martin boldly said, his dream was that one day the news of equality would spread: So one day his four children would grow up to live in a place where they would no longer dwell separated by their race. A nation where children aren't judged by the color of their skin, but rather by their character, as it should have always been. Dr. King's words were televised - inspired every nation. The Civil Rights Bill passed in '64: a righteous declaration! That same year Dr. King was honored, as was most deserved, peaceful opposition was the way he always served. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, though he had more to promote. Progress had been made, but still so hard for blacks to vote... In '65 he planned a march from Selma to Montgomery. State troopers tried to stop their trek across the country. President Johnson sent his Federal troops for their protection, so they had the chance to voice their literacy test objections. Not long after, President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act, giving all citizens equal rights to vote, as a matter of fact. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream to liberate, but, soon he was assassinated in 1968. President Reagan ensured that his deeds would be retold, making the third Monday in January a day we’d behold. Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a national holiday, a time to remember, he paid with his life to bring a better way.

African-Americans and Palestinians have good reason to join their struggles together in solidarity. Featured Speakers: Aaron Dixon, Jesse Hagopian, and Gerald Lenoir The people of Palestine live daily under the longest continual occupation in the world today. From racist apartheid laws that give Palestinians living in Israel the worst schools, homes, social services, and restrict their free speech, to the settler encroachment on the West Bank, to the blockade on Gaza that has turned it into what many commentators have called an open air prison, Palestinians face brutal oppression from the Israeli government, made possible by funding from the United States. The U.S. itself has a long legacy of racism, from slavery to Jim Crow segregation to mass incarceration today--and a long legacy of Black Americans resisting that oppression and making connections with Palestinians struggling for justice. Interfaith Peace Builders is an organization that has long been dedicated to actively promoting civil, political and human rights in Palestine and has recently begun sponsoring African Heritage Delegations to Palestine. The African Heritage Delegation builds upon existing efforts within the African Heritage communities and will strengthen work focusing on Apartheid in Israel, justice in Palestine, and the growth of boycott, divestment and sanctions campaigns nationally. In a 2007 "Letter to Black America on Palestinian Rights" over 40 African-American activists urged: It is time for our people to once again demand that the silence be broken on the injustices faced by the Palestinian people resulting from the Israeli occupation. The second African Heritage Delegation is currently in Palestine meeting African Palestinians, meeting founders of the Israeli Black Panther Party, exchanging stories with Palestinian civil society organizations, and trading lessons with activists in the West Bank. The first African Heritage Delegation traveled there in July 2011 (click here to read about that trip). Join us for a discussion of the intersection of Palestinian and African-American struggles with returning African Heritage Delegation members: Aaron Dixon: Aaron Dixon is the founder of the Seattle chapter of the Black Panther Party--recently chronicled in his memoir My People Are Rising (Haymarket Books)--and is currently in Palestine as part of the second African Heritage Delegation. Aaron was the Green Party candidate for U.S. Senate in 2006 running on a platform of, "Out of war and into our communities." Aaron currently serves as the executive director of Central House, a homeless shelter for youth. Aaron will be just back from Palestine to share the lessons of his experience in person. Gerald Lenoir: Gerald Lenoir has been a leader in progressive social movements for over 30 years. He is currently the Director of the Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI) and founding member and trip leader of the African Heritage Delegation to Palestine. Lenior is currently a board member of the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights and is the former executive director of the Black Coalition on AIDS in San Francisco and co-founder/board chair of the HIV Education and Prevention Project of Alameda County in Oakland, Calif. He was a member of the editorial board of War Times, an anti-Iraq War newspaper and a long time leader in the racial justice and anti-apartheid movements in the United States. He has also served as a strategic planning consultant for racial justice, immigrant rights, HIV/AIDS and health-related organizations, and public health departments. Jesse Hagopian: Jesse Hagopian is a public high school teacher in Seattle and a founding member of Social Equality Educators (SEE). He is a contributing author to the recently published books, Education and Capitalism: Struggles for Learning and Liberation and 101 Changemakers (Haymarket Books). He serves on the Board of Directors of Maha-Lilo—"Many Hands, Light Load"—a Haiti solidarity organization, and traveled with the African Heritage delegation to Palestine in 2011.

In which John Green teaches you about America's "peculiar institution," slavery. I wouldn't really call it peculiar. I'd lean more toward horrifying and depressing institution, but nobody asked me. John will talk about what life was like for a slave in the 19th century United States, and how slaves resisted oppression, to the degree that was possible. We'll hear about cotton plantations, violent punishment of slaves, day to day slave life, and slave rebellions. Nat Turner, Harriet Tubman, and Whipped Peter all make an appearance. Slavery as an institution is arguably the darkest part of America's history, and we're still dealing with its aftermath 150 years after it ended.

Black conservative leaders discuss how the NRA was created to protect freed slaves - SHORT VERSION Black conservative leaders discuss the reason the NRA was founded and how gun control is an effort to control people. The Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE) hosted a group of prominent figures from the African American community at 9:45A.M. on Friday, February 22nd at the National Press Club to speak out against gun control legislation currently being considered on Capitol Hill. CURE is the largest black conservative think tank in the nation and is headquartered in Washington, D.C. CURE organized the news conference in response to concerns shared by black conservatives that the Senate proposed laws will restrict their ability to defend themselves, their property and their families. They are also concerned that the proposed gun control legislation puts too much power in the hands of politicians. "I believe that it is our duty to stand together and challenge the proposals currently on the table in the Senate, which invoke painful memories of Jim Crow laws and black codes," said CURE president and founder, Star Parker. "Black history is rife with government demands for background checks in order to qualify for constitutional rights. All Americans should be concerned." Star Parker, a nationally syndicated columnist and other noted thought leaders, authors and speakers will make the case against the type of gun control measures President Obama and his liberal allies are proposing. While the group believes that Sandy Hook was a national tragedy, they oppose its use as an opportunity to advance government control and strip any American citizens of their constitutional rights. In the middle of Black History Month, CURE is calling for a serious national dialogue about the impact of gun control on the black community. "We want to inform United States senators that we will be notifying urban pastors, business leaders and other black voters of their legislators' position on the Second Amendment—especially blue senators in red states currently up for re-election." The news conference is to rally behind the tradition of former slave and great American orator Frederick Douglass who said, "A man's rights rest in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box." DAFR fights for the inalienable firearms rights of responsible disabled Americans. Disabled Americans have unique needs when exercising their 2nd Amendment rights. The mission of DAFR is intertwined within five basic areas of focus. These areas consist of: 1. The introduction of firearms for self-defense to disabled Americans. 2. Shooting sports program and organized competition for disabled Americans and wounded veterans. 3. Oversee firearms legislation and research their impact on Americans with disabilities. 4. Offer assistance to responsible disabled Americans in order to exercise their 2nd Amendment right. 5. Educating the public and elected officials about how disabled American firearms owners have unique needs that must be met when exercising their 2nd Amendment right. We have also become concerned with recent legislation that is proposed throughout the United States in reaction to the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. With that, our organization has taken a clear stand on various bills, public acts and proposed laws that we deem would be disadvantageous to responsible disabled firearms owners. DAFR intends to shed light on the fact that many Disabled Americans can only use certain types of firearms such as the highly adaptable AR15 rifle platform. A ban or other serious restrictions on the AR15 rifle as well as certain other firearms will have an adverse effect on the rights of thousands of disabled Americans. http://www.dafr.org http://www.facebook.com/DAFRUSA http://www.twitter.com/DAFRUSA If you support Disabled Americans for Firearms Rights, please visit our website at http://www.dafr.org , join our organization and spread the word, THANK YOU ALL for the support!

Alan Barron, 59, was placed on paid administrative leave two weeks ago after an assistant principal at Monroe Middle School sat in on his lesson about Jim Crow racial segregation laws. As part of the lesson, Barron showed the class a video about the use of blackface by white performers of the time to imitate African Americans. The administrator objected to the video, and Barron, a teacher for 36 years, was suspended. Parents and students have spoken out in Barron's defense, saying they agreed with his lesson plan. "It had nothing to do with racism." one parent told The Monroe news. 'History is history. We need to educate our kids to see how far we've come in America. How is that racism?' Many other students and parents took to Facebook to voice their dissatisfaction over Barron's suspension. One student, Cody Leach, had T-shirts made in support of the history teacher. As a result of his suspension, Barron is barred from attending district functions, which includes a banquet to honor retiring teachers. The school district would not comment on the issue, a spokesman for the district refusing to confirm that Barron had been suspended and instead saying that he was 'on leave.' However, Barron's attorney said he was reinstated on Sunday evening. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoUSA, where we animate the most entertaining news from 'MURRICA.

What, you may ask, is the Gilded Age? The term comes from a book by Mark Twain and Charles Dudley Warner titled, "The Gilded Age." You may see a pattern emerging here. It started in the 1870s and continued on until the turn of the 20th century. The era is called Gilded because of the massive inequality that existed in the United States. Gilded Age politics were marked by a number of phenomenons, most of them having to do with corruption. On the local and state level, political machines wielded enormous power. John gets into details about the most famous political machine, Tammany Hall. Tammany Hall ran New York City for a long, long time, notably under Boss Tweed. Graft, kickbacks, and voter fraud were rampant, but not just at the local level. Ulysses S. Grant ran one of the most scandalous presidential administrations in U.S. history, and John will tell you about two of the best known scandals, the Credit Mobilier scandal and the Whiskey Ring. There were a few attempts at reform during this time, notably the Civil Service Act of 1883 and the Sherman Anti-trust act of 1890. John will also get into the Grange Movement of the western farmers, and the Populist Party that arose from that movement. The Populists, who threw in their lot with William Jennings Bryan, never managed to get it together and win a presidency, and they faded after 1896. Which brings us to the Progressive Era, which we'll get into next week!

History of the Civil Rights Movement Beginning with the end of the U.S. Civil War in 1865, African Americans toiled to reach equal status in the eyes of the law. Not only that, they also struggled against abuse – both physical and mental – by racist members of society. Starting with the right to vote, and then laboring to integrate schools and other aspects of everyday life, the Civil Rights Movement made huge strides over a century of work. While the crusade may never truly be over, many considered the election of the country’s first African American President to be a turning point in the battle. In this video, http://www.WatchMojo.com explores the history of the United States’ Civil Rights Movement.

Learn about the political, social, and economic changes in the Union and the Confederacy and the Civil War’s long-term economic and intellectual impact. In The Unfinished Revolution: Reconstruction and After, 1865-1890, Professor Eric Foner examines the pivotal but misunderstood era of Reconstruction that followed the Civil War, the first effort in American history to construct an interracial democracy. Beginning with a discussion of the dramatic change in historians’ interpretations of the period in the last two generations, Foner goes on to discuss how Reconstruction turned on issues of continued relevance today. Among these are: who is an American citizen and what are citizens’ rights; what is the relationship between political and economic freedom; which has the primary responsibility for protecting Americans’ rights – the federal or state governments; and how should public authorities respond to episodes of terrorism? The course explores the rewriting of the laws and Constitution to incorporate the principle of equality regardless of race; the accomplishments and failings of Reconstruction governments in the South; the reasons for violent opposition in the South and for the northern retreat from Reconstruction; and the consolidation at the end of the 19th century of a new system of white supremacy. This course is part of the series, The Civil War and Reconstruction, which introduces students to the most pivotal era in American history. The Civil War transformed the nation by eliminating the threat of secession and destroying the institution of slavery. It raised questions that remain central to our understanding of ourselves as a people and a nation — the balance of power between local and national authority, the boundaries of citizenship, and the meanings of freedom and equality. The series will examine the causes of the war, the road to secession, the conduct of the Civil War, the coming of emancipation, and the struggle after the war to breathe meaning into the promise of freedom for four million emancipated slaves. One theme throughout the series is what might be called the politics of history — how the world in which a historian lives affects his or her view of the past, and how historical interpretations reinforce or challenge the social order of the present. Eric Foner, DeWitt Clinton Professor of History at Columbia University, is one of the most prominent historians in the United States. Professor Foner is the author or editor of over twenty books concentrating on the intersections of intellectual, political and social history and the history of American race relations. His recent book, The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, the Bancroft Prize, and the Lincoln Prize. He is the author of Give Me Liberty!: An American History, a widely-used survey textbook of U. S. history published by W. W. Norton. Additionally, he is the recipient of the Presidential Award for Outstanding Teaching from Columbia University. He is one of only two persons ever to serve as president of the three major professional organizations: the American Historical Association, Organization of American Historians, and Society of American Historians. As co-curator of two award-winning historical exhibitions, and through frequent appearances in newspapers and magazines and on radio and television discussion programs, he has also endeavored to bring historical knowledge to a broad public outside the university.

TYT's Eric Byler caught up with Mara Keisling, Executive Director of the Center for Transgender Equality. Keisling was one of 54 arrested at the North Carolina General Assembly Building on April 25, 2016 as part of a Moral Monday civil disobedience action. On Monday, May 16, 2016, North Carolinians will again occupy the General Assembly building at 4 pm. (3 pm for those planning to risk arrest). Eric Byler of TYT Politics will be there to stream via this page on FB Live. MORE INFO: https://www.facebook.com/events/470197463175635/ https://www.youtube.com/watchv=OUlO1oynDfg&feature=youtu.be Excerpt from statement by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch: Today, we are filing a federal civil rights lawsuit against the state of North Carolina, Governor Pat McCrory, the North Carolina Department of Public Safety and the University of North Carolina. We are seeking a court order declaring House Bill 2’s restroom restriction impermissibly discriminatory, as well as a statewide bar on its enforcement. While the lawsuit currently seeks declaratory relief, I want to note that we retain the option of curtailing federal funding to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety and the University of North Carolina as this case proceeds. This action is about a great deal more than just bathrooms. This is about the dignity and respect we accord our fellow citizens and the laws that we, as a people and as a country, have enacted to protect them – indeed, to protect all of us. And it’s about the founding ideals that have led this country – haltingly but inexorably – in the direction of fairness, inclusion and equality for all Americans. This is not the first time that we have seen discriminatory responses to historic moments of progress for our nation. We saw it in the Jim Crow laws that followed the Emancipation Proclamation. We saw it in fierce and widespread resistance to Brown v. Board of Education. And we saw it in the proliferation of state bans on same-sex unions intended to stifle any hope that gay and lesbian Americans might one day be afforded the right to marry. That right, of course, is now recognized as a guarantee embedded in our Constitution, and in the wake of that historic triumph, we have seen bill after bill in state after state taking aim at the LGBT community. Some of these responses reflect a recognizably human fear of the unknown, and a discomfort with the uncertainty of change. But this is not a time to act out of fear. This is a time to summon our national virtues of inclusivity, diversity, compassion and open-mindedness. What we must not do – what we must never do – is turn on our neighbors, our family members, our fellow Americans, for something they cannot control, and deny what makes them human. This is why none of us can stand by when a state enters the business of legislating identity and insists that a person pretend to be something they are not, or invents a problem that doesn’t exist as a pretext for discrimination and harassment. Let me speak now to the people of the great state, the beautiful state, my state of North Carolina. You’ve been told that this law protects vulnerable populations from harm – but that just is not the case. Instead, what this law does is inflict further indignity on a population that has already suffered far more than its fair share. This law provides no benefit to society – all it does is harm innocent Americans. Instead of turning away from our neighbors, our friends, our colleagues, let us instead learn from our history and avoid repeating the mistakes of our past. Let us reflect on the obvious but often neglected lesson that state-sanctioned discrimination never looks good in hindsight. It was not so very long ago that states, including North Carolina, had signs above restrooms, water fountains and on public accommodations keeping people out based upon a distinction without a difference. We have moved beyond those dark days, but not without pain and suffering and an ongoing fight to keep moving forward. Let us write a different story this time. Let us not act out of fear and misunderstanding, but out of the values of inclusion, diversity and regard for all that make our country great. Let me also speak directly to the transgender community itself. Some of you have lived freely for decades. Others of you are still wondering how you can possibly live the lives you were born to lead. But no matter how isolated or scared you may feel today, the Department of Justice and the entire Obama Administration wants you to know that we see you; we stand with you; and we will do everything we can to protect you going forward. Please know that history is on your side. This country was founded on a promise of equal rights for all, and we have always managed to move closer to that promise, little by little, one day at a time. It may not be easy – but we’ll get there together.

Ben Carson: “I wish the Republicans and Donald Trump would spend a lot more time talking about the history of the Republican Party which started as the Abolitionist Party. And the Democrats, you know, who were the party of slavery and Jim Crow and segregation. And, you know, who tried to stop the Civil Rights Movement, the laws and the voting laws. And then they say, ‘oh well, you know, it was really the Democrats who turned into the Republicans.’ And, you know, they did a switch. What a bunch of crap. You know. And I hope people will go back and actually read for themselves and find out that it was only about one or two percent of people who were engaged in the party switch. And, you know, the Democrats have continued to take advantage of the African-American community. And, you know, this propaganda, which starts at a very early age, creating dependency. Black people do not need the Democratic Party. They don’t need the government at all. You know, when you look at the fact that in the black community there’s over a trillion dollars of assets, you learn how to turn those dollars over and then reach back and pull others along. These are the things that we need to be talking about. But, in the meantime, empowerment zones, utilizing some of that tremendous amount of money that’s overseas, because of our high corporate tax rates for enterprise zones and to create jobs.” “But, Donald Trump has started already talking about these issues, so I think there will be some receptivity when we go into those communities and begin to actually lay out programs that make sense. And people are smart enough to actually listen and not be driven by a herd mentality.”
