What a great post Repukes!!GOP Racism? What, you say?
Part of that has to do with policy. And a lot of that has to do with the white backlash Johnson correctly predicted.
So if Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, and his cohorts are really serious about bringing minorities into their big tent, they need to do more than massage the party's message. They need to do more than rethink its policies. They have to be honest about who is in their tent already.
I applaud the effort of the RNC's 98-page Growth and Opportunity Project report. But it's hard to characterize it as an honest assessment of the party when it doesn't include the words "racism," "racists" or "racist" in it. How can this so-called "autopsy" be accurate when it doesn't include the cause of death?
As the glaring omissions in the Growth and Opportunity Project report suggests, this wound is self-inflicted. For as long as GOP leaders refuse to acknowledge and confront racism in their party, they will continue to have a hard time convincing minorities they have their best interests in mind.
Now, I'm sure spending $10 million to pay people to hang out with minorities and talk about how great the Republican Party is seems like a good idea.
But when there is footage of a black man being beaten and run over by a group of white teenagers who reportedly wanted to "go __ with some ____" (racist comment) nearly 50 years after Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, trust me, minorities are not looking for rent-a-friend to come talk to us about the Grand Old Party.
There is definitely a fair share of bigots in the Democrat Party, and liberals can be quick to attribute problems impacting minorities to racism.
But far too often, the GOP is quick to dismiss racism as a factor in anything, which draws attention to the party's lack of self-awareness.
The Republican Party as a whole is saddled with the perception of having a diversity problem, and its recent political history justifies that perception. From what I know of Priebus, he is smart enough to know all of this.
The fact this issue is not addressed in the report suggests he still isn't sure what to do about it.
Disgusting what you repukes teach your children in this day and age. Yeah, we see where you repukes want to go "BACK" to. Don't think so. The MAJORITY is moving FORWARD with out you. It is 2013, get with the times racist losers. "Rent a friend"...just too funny. Guess that is why all GOP rallies, conventions etc..are mostly old and pale white. Check out the videos, it's there. And no I am not black, mixed, or latino. I am 100% white female American born that is really ashamed of some of my fellow Americans like the repukes who are being exposed for their ignorance and backward thinking. DEMS are way ahead of you repukes on treating people like humans, protecting their rights and doing that WWJD concept lifting our fellow man up from poverty. A concept you repukes just don't get. Carry on. Every post exposes you and your parties. lmbo
100% dead on truth!
You say my posts last night..... They just don't get it.... The top law officials of our land, SCOTUS say he's a citizen, and these racists go on and on with Kenyan this, goat herder that.... No wonder they lose elections. They're just dumb racist trash and will never change.
Sad thing for these dumb folks is they're cry and whine after every election wondering why they're losing for years to come because they're too dumb to figure it out.
Great Job!! Keep those facts coming!!(Shortened your post so I could reply sorry)
