My wife's niece posted this on Facebook:She had the caption:
This meme is dedicated to all the racist bigots who are condemning Coca-Cola for singing 'America the Beautiful' in a multitude of languages (You might want to take a seat for this one):...
So, I posted this:
Katherine Lee Bates was a life-long Republican who supported the Democratic candidate for President, John W. Davis, in the 1924 elections because Calvin Coolidge opposed the formation of the League of Nations. Interestingly, John W. Davis was a proponent of race segregation. He even argued against integration in Briggs v. Elliot, a companion Supreme Court Case to Brown v. Board of Education.
Neither she nor her friends have commented.
Why do I post this here? Because it is typical of the bending and distortion of history for an agenda. All her friends were tripping over themselves about how the changes always come from liberals, etc.
