The Republican party is destined for the dustbin of history, as long as it continues to have dufus's as its leaders... I'm talking about people who don't know that referring to apes or watermelons in the context of black people is offensive.
I don't know WHY they don't know that, but they don't. Really! They don't know that. Or they're liars. Which one is it? From a leadership point of view, does it matter?
I think that is more strawman unless you can produce quotes of Republican leaders referring to blacks as apes etc.
But you are right that Republicans have done a poor pr
job in pointing out the hypocrisy of the Democrats regarding race.
No segment of the population has lost more by the agendas of the liberals than the black population.
The teachers' unions, environmental fanatics and the ACLU are just some of the groups to whose interests blacks have been sacrificed . Lousy education and high crime rates 'lost opportunities for becoming upwardly mobile are the prices they have paid for liberalism.
All the Republicans need is someone who can make the case that the making policy that rewards individual initiatives ;greater choice in education ;creating a business friendly environment that in turn creates jobs and opportunities to advance would help Black Americans more than the reliance on the Democrat Nanny-state .
Michael Steele could be that voice if he would stop silly pissing matches with Rush Limbaugh and presenting the case that Republicans need to imitate Democrats to achieve success. The Republicans will go into the dust bin of history if they continue to be Democrat-light .
