So, if Conservatives appoint or vote for conservative white people, they are non-inclusive and racist. If Conservatives appoint or vote for conservative black or Hispanic people they are non-inclusive and racist. This is like the global warming crowd, who will blame any type of weather (warming weather or cooling weather) on global warming. Conservatives won't be called names if they appoint or vote for liberals of any ethnicity. So, if we want liberals and the media to like us conservatives, then we should be good little people and give the liberals everything they want. If we don't then, we are evil, racist, sexist, Fox-watching, little cretins.

Unfortunately die-hard liberals are never going to approve of anything conservatives do, as witnessed by the recent repellent labelling of Scott as a "token." But it's not in their best interests to have genuine, non-token black conservatives succeed politically...I'm pretty sure a lot of black people are well aware of the cynicism which they can be used by die-hard liberals. :( It's an opportunity for conservatives...should be seized.

When will liberals stop living in the past? Specifically, when will they accept that they aren't all that stands between a wonderful, tolerant America and Jim Crow?

I was in the room when, during the Democratic convention, civil rights hero John Lewis suggested that Republicans wanted to "go back" to the days when black men like him could be beaten in the street by the enforcers of Jim Crow. I thought it an outrageous and disgusting bit of demagoguery. The audience of Democratic delegates cheered in a riot of self-congratulation.

It's bizarre. I spend most of my time talking...
