Republicans seem to think racial discrimination doesn't exist. That's a very odd starting point. It's one thing to say: "Racism does exist, but government is ill-equipped to address these social dynamics. Quotas and affirmative action are not the answer. Non-government, local approaches are. We oppose discrimination everywhere." It's another to say, "What racism?". Let me close by saying Goldberg thinks Republicans can take race off the table and appeal to minorities through better public policy. Minorities who endure racial discrimination will not vote for a party that begins by dismissing their legitimate concerns. It's a non-starter.
