Dont get too excited. Remember Clarence Thomas, Colin Powell, Condalezza Rice and others. Being black really isnt the issue. Being black and being a left wing loon is the acceptable place to be. If the GOP runs a black he or she will be villified as NO WHITE MALE could ever be. Think Mia Love, Herman Cain et al. This really isnt about being black so much as being the CORRECT black. The left is not interested in individuals only interest groups.

Yea Powell is a joke now but then he was evil and a "tom". Now he's a statesman. The point is when you wear the wrong colors look out.

Sadly what you say is all true . Artur Davis , former democratic congressman who recently switched to the republican party points out that while blacks agree with conservative ideas on gay marriage and abortion that agreement will not change one vote . He points out that only when republicans can explain how their economic policies will benefit the black community will they consider switching parties . Of course this black cume laude graduate from Harvard is now being call a uncle tom.

Seems i do remember Colin painin the black ###,, He voted for Odumass!

If the GOP wants to win more black votes, it will need to get a lot more "racist."

The scare quotes are necessary because I don't think the Republican Party is racist now (and, historically, the GOP has a lot less to answer for than the Democratic Party does).

But that hasn't stopped a lot of people from slandering Republicans as racist for one reason or another.

Right now, many in Washington -- particularly the leadership of the Congressional Black Caucus -- insist that Republican attacks on U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice are racist and, yawn, sexist. The basis...
