Bigotry? You're Lecturing Republicans About Bigotry?

Don't lecture us about bigotry, OK? 
And, BTW: It was Republicans in the House and Senate who provided the key votes to pass the civil rights acts of the 1960s. 
The first woman to ever have her name placed in nomination for President was a Republican and it happened at a Republican convention. 
And, the first African-American US Senator to be elected since Reconstruction was a Republican. And, it was a Republican president who nominated the first woman to serve on the US Supreme Court. 
And, a Republican president appointed the first African-American to serve as Secretary of State and the first African-American woman to serve in that position. 
Not that we're counting, but facts are facts.
