How can he be worse than the authors of the three-fifths compromise who effectively barred blacks from citizenship, democratic rights or legal status until 1896?

How can he be worse than the national leader who espoused white supremacy and was indifferent as to the slavery question - as long as the union remained in tact?

How can he be worse than the President who built a national highway system but failed to connect blacks to industries without the fetters of labor racism and unequal pay...who failed to follow through on the promise of the movement introduced by the likes of A. Philip Randolph?

Good, bad or indifferent - brothers of a foul feather in foul weather...I see similarities and a consistency of leadership that makes one hard to separate from another. Tactics may change, the principle remains. Ronny the Great? George the Great? Pick your poison.
