I feel this article makes a few valid points. It doesn't, however adequately discuss values that matter to members of racial minorities and the extent to which these values are reflected in an active conservative community. To what degree does the Republican party squarely address the "beefs" that a black voter would sincerely voice? It obviously isn't useful for white guys and gals to snipe at one another as to who is or is not racist, or snort at the rationales behind labels and accusations. The negativity of the late campaign may be masking a rise of mature critical thinking. Less heat...more light! Isn't that what leadership is?
