Research reveals that African American will opt to overwhelmingly vote for a democrat presidential candidate even if elections were to be held today. This has its roots in the fore fathers of the African American citizens who witnessed the racial factor that dominated during those years. The aim of this paper however, is not to show how the racial discrimination separated the Americans at large, in fact, it is meant to focus more on why the African Americans drastically changed from voting for the Republican Party to the Democratic Party and why this will probably happen as long as the party exist. However, for the paper to be conclusive and to give a comprehensive conclusion on the main agenda, it is important to look at how racial discrimination was entrenched in the American society. It is also worth noting at this point that it is this same party that gave birth to the first African American president.
