Quoted from the article, these are things that Republicans are suing Democrats for: It's pretty pathetic that this is the best that black conservatives can do. The fact is that above and beyond any party affiliations, it is conservative ideology that was behind everything listed above.

Re: Who celebrates Kwanzaa?

James Wesley Chester ·
Your question wasn't to me, but if I may: The Missouri Compromise was about admitting addition "slave" States to the Union. The concern was constraining the edge in power held by the "slave" States. The Compromise was that for another "slave" to join the Union there must be an addiltion of a "non-slave" State. In the case of Missouri, it was the State of Maine.

The big deal about that was that at that time, there was an even amount of slave and non-slave States, and this kept a certain balance of power in the Congress ... one side not having more power than the other." --EbonyRose The number of...
