Why doesn't anyone talk about how Democrats have historically been slavers?

The confederacy was full of democrat politicians, fighting against republicans. Democrats also didn't want blacks or women to vote, and wanted (and succeeded for a shot time) alcohol to be illegal. Doesn't history prove that Democrats are the racist party and that Republicans fight for equality?

Update:

Republicans also freed the slaves in winning the civil war.

    Everyone learned in history classes that the Democrats were split from the Republican-Democrat Party during the "War Between the States" (c. 1860)

    The Democrats were Pro-Slavery, after the lost war the Democrats created the Klu Klux Klan (KKK) to intimidate and murder uppity non-WASP people in the U.S.

    Fought the Republican attempts to Reconstruction the Southern states.

    Democrats still have blacks on their plantation except now they pay them not to work, only for their votes.

    You are 100% correct in your question.

    And if you replace DEMOCRAT with CONSERVATIVE you will STILL be correct.

    Because it's 2020 and slavers wouldn't elect a black president 12 years ago and again 8 years ago, and also "anyone" isn't a desperate con.

    1.  The Democrats of today are not like that.

    2.  The Republicans of today ARE like that - or at least the Trump followers.

    3.  Lincoln did not free the slaves.  He signed an executive order to free slaves in areas controlled by the Confederacy.  (PS, Lincoln said that black people were inferior to whites.)  It took a constitutional amendment (after his death) to free all slaves.

    The parties switched in the 1960s. When republicans came out against civil rights and democrats supported civil rights. And because of the protest era. Republicans wanted the feds to bust protesters skulls and democrats supported the protesters.

    I think what you are saying is that republicans will have no issue with getting rid of confederate symbols.
