I don't know who she is

But she's hot. And she's right.


Many people, mostly Democrats, would claim that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was none of the things she mentions and was the biggest step ever for African-Americans. Of course, it was Democrats who filibustered those bills, Democrats who imposed the policies that the bill was intended to void and Republicans who made the passage of that bill possible. Republicans voted for the bill in much higher percentages than did Democrats, and the bill never would have passed the Senate or the House without Republican support, even though the Democrats held 67 seats in the Senate and 248 seats in the House, both huge majorities. They could do anything they wanted to without the Republicans. Except a big chunk of them didn't want to. So even that is not really a Democrat accomplishment.

So let's look at today. Anything to contradict her contention that the Democrats are just a condescending candyman when it comes to African-Americans?
