To make the case your party isn't racist, you shoubegs top the racist talk. Unless of course you and your people are still just talking among yourselves. It's cool if you keep doing that--we libtards find it tactically useful. To prove you don't hate blacks you should probably stop saying stuff that makes them think you are dangerous and untrustworthy, such as that Democrats are the real racists because Lincoln was a Republican. hint: victims of oppression are good at identifying who their oppressors are, and voting against them. Declaring them dupes is not a path to winning their votes. Neither is ginning up fake oppression like the War on Christmas or Class War. These are as real as the Romney presidency.

You have to get past Romney,we have.Your assertion that people of color & people that are not,have
have identified their oppressors,is ridiculous.You libs have created generational poverty by repeating
the same propaganda that government is your salvation.The GOP wants you to live in poverty,but
we'll fight for you to the very end.Sadly,the end never gets here.You seem to have a god complex.
All you then do is cry racist ad nauseum.There's a war being waged on women,on minorities & on the
poor.Those were you talking points,not ours.To insinuate that we as a whole have been
stereotyped as racist,oppressive & downright haters is insulting to the extreme.You claim our education system is doing well,lie.

Where is this "government is your salvation" talk that appeals to black people and is the main sourceof the black vote as opposed to the votes of white people which must be based solely on other issues? It is insulting to assume that black people are single issue voters and that issue is welfare, when the only thing that seems to be proven common ground that differs from Democrats is probably same sex marriage.

Keep drinking the blue kool aid buddy. Its easier than thinking for yourself.

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...
