The African American vote- The battle between the Republicans and Democrats

The African American vote- The battle between the Republicans and Democrats
republican-and-democratic-elections

Often during presidential election years a conversation occurs about white southerners shifting their votes from Democratic Party to the Republican Party, after the passing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. A conversation also occurs regarding African Americans shifting their votes to the Democratic party from the Republican Party. Keeping in mind that, within the southern states, most African Americans were not voting until the passing of the 1965 Voting Rights Acts.

Since 1970, southern states have gained millions of transplants from northern states, mid-western states, western states and internationals. This has created some of the most populated states in nation including: Texas (27,469,114 rank 2nd), Florida (20,271,272 rank 3rd), Georgia (10,214,860 rank 8th), North Carolina (10,042,802 rank 9th), Virginia (8,382,993 rank 12th), Tennessee (6,600,299 rank 17th) and Maryland (6,006,401 rank 19th). Thus, the term Southern now describes a diversity of ideas and political views that are no longer dictated by just natives from the South.

Below is a collection of historical newspaper articles taking a look back at racial voting patterns and political strategies within the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. It is shows America as it was, from the media’s viewpoints, during the actual time periods.
