The racist history the Democratic Party wants you to forget

The latest smear against those who oppose Obama goes something along the lines that opposing him is tantamount to racism. This WSJ Op-Ed sets the record straight regarding the racist history of the Democratic Party. We cannot reproduce it here entirely because of copyright issues but I will just give three quotes which surely will make our readers intrigued about the rest,
"Anyone who has traveled to the Far East knows that the
mingling of Asiatic blood with European or American blood produces, in nine
cases out of ten, the most unfortunate results. . . . The argument
works both ways. I know a great many cultivated, highly educated and delightful
Japanese. They have all told me that they would feel the same repugnance and
objection to have thousands of Americans settle in Japan and intermarry with the
Japanese as I would feel in having large numbers of Japanese coming over here
and intermarry with the American population. In this question, then, of Japanese
exclusion from the United States it is necessary only to advance the true
reason--the undesirability of mixing the blood of the two peoples.
. . . The Japanese people and the American people are both opposed to
intermarriage of the two races--there can be no quarrel there."
D. Roosevelt, 1925 President, 1933-45
"I'm not going to use the federal government's authority deliberately to circumvent the natural inclination of people to live in ethnically homogeneous neighborhoods. . . . I have nothing against a community that's made up of people who are Polish or Czechoslovakian or French-Canadian or blacks who are trying to maintain the ethnic purity of their neighborhoods."
--Jimmy Carter, 1976 President, 1977-81 Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, 2002
"The Confederate Memorial has had a special place in my life for many years. . . . There were many, many times that I found myself drawn to this deeply inspiring memorial, to contemplate the sacrifices of others, several of whom were my ancestors, whose enormous suffering and collective gallantry are to this day still misunderstood by most Americans."
--James Webb, 1990 Now a Democratic Senator from Virginia
