Back in 1958, black people had to sit at the back of the bus, go to separate diners, and use separate restrooms.

While living in a "Jim Crow' era is a conservative fantasy, those days are over, even if it does make their mouths water.
Where TF do you get off lecturing people that have actually accomplished something on how to live? You haven't the vaguest clue what you're talking about..

DEMOCRATS steeltwink. DEMOCRATS. If you don't know WTF you're talking about, STFU tool.

During the Reconstruction period of 1865–1877 federal law provided civil rights protection in the South for "freedmen" — the African Americans who had formerly been slaves. In the 1870s, white Democrats gradually returned to power in southern states, sometimes as a result of elections in which paramilitary groups intimidated opponents, attacking blacks or preventing them from voting. Gubernatorial elections were close and disputed in Louisiana for years, with extreme violence unleashed during the campaign. In 1877 a national compromise to gain southern support in the presidential election resulted in the last of the federal troops being withdrawn from the South. White Democrats had taken back power in every Southern state.[4] The white, Democratic Party Redeemer government that followed the troop withdrawal legislated Jim Crow laws segregating black people from the state's white population.

"Jim Crow" had nothing to do with conservatism. It had and still has everything to do with your beloved @#$%ing racist donkeys.
