As usual Rachel Maddow is lying as all liberals do

In July 1867 twenty Whites and 150 Blacks attended a Republican convention in Houston, where they endorsed free common schools and free homesteads from public lands for Blacks and Whites alike. Thus began a decades-long tradition of Black Republicanism in the state. Despite widespread violence and intimidation by the Ku Klux Klan and Democrats, many Black men registered for the first election in which they could participate-the 1868 referendum on whether to hold another constitutional convention and elect delegates. More Blacks than Whites cast ballots, and, with their White allies, they overcame the opposition of the majority of White voters and voted to hold another convention. The Convention of 1868–69, dominated by Republicans, included ten African-American delegates out of ninety. Among them was George T. Ruby of Galveston, a Northern journalist and teacher who had moved to Texas to work in freedmen's schools; he became a well-known Republican leader. All ten were active on committees and presented important resolutions. Though frustrated in attempts to secure certain constitutional safeguards for their people, they contributed to the accomplishments of the convention, which paved the way for the readmission of Texas to the Union in March 1870.

The election of Edmund J. Davis, a White radical, as governor in 1869 gave Blacks additional influence, as did the election of two Black state senators-G. T. Ruby and Matthew Gaines, a minister and former slave-and twelve representatives to the Twelfth Legislature. Dominated by reform-minded Republicans, this body ratified the Fourteenth and Fifteenth amendments and passed several important though controversial laws, including ones establishing a militia and the Texas State Police, open to Blacks, to control lawlessness and violence in the state. The legislature also passed a homestead act, a measure protecting homesteads from forced sale, and a law establishing public schools.
In other words, blacks didn't lose the right to vote until THE DEMOCRATS stepped and got power, the same exact same party they are today

You do know that white America has a rampant and vicious history of racism against Black people?

Not only Black people, but generally any other people they feel are not "white enough" for their racist, moronic brains?

America still using race statistics and race policies. Want to always pretend everyone is a threat except themselves.

You people keep trying to claim, "It's the Democrats! It's the Republicans!"

Both parties are trash and are still living in the 1800s.

In reality, it's people like you.
