I really like to read the columns here written by the black columnists. I love hearing their perspective. I don't get why we aren't embracing more black/minority writers, speakers, entrepreneurs, etc. We just seem to always have a white face talking Republican views. But when minorities get up and speak, they are listened to more. I found Rubio much more engaging than Ryan, and couldn't understand Romney choosing the later as a running mate. Neither candidate oozed personality or charisma. We need minorities with charisma to be part of the face of the Republican party. Without it, the party goes the way of the Whigs and is replaced with the Libertarian or Constitutional party. Old school GOP isn't different enough from the Dems.
