Second verse, same as the first

Glory be!

CNN has saw fit to point out (during an election season, no less) that the Republican Party began as the anti-slavery Party. The Democratic Party was content to allow African Americans to wallow in bondage and poverty at behest of government sanctioned overlords, while the Republicans sought to allow blacks to seek their own fortunes by being appropriately rewarded for their labors and on the merits of their abilities.

What the article failed to mention is that little has changed with regard to the roles of the two parties in the lives of African Americans in the last 150 years.
