The foundation of the Democrat Party is slavery...forcing one group of people to support another by force for the benefit of a ruling/controlling class. This was as true in 1860 as it is today. The difference between 1860 and today is in how they pursue those ends. In 1860, they used the whip. In 1960, they used the promise of equal opportunity. In2021, they used the concept of equal or preferential outcome. In the end, it's not about race, or status improvement. It is about power for the ruling class.
