So many forget that it was a white male Republican, Abe Lincoln, who freed the slaves. Grant was instrumental in that fight. Republicans have been consistent from then until now - blacks should be free and equal in the eyes of the law, and no need for social programs remains be a part of that, as Lincoln-era Republicans and modern-era Republicans both agree. We have not changed in our reasonable support of racial equality.
