There are virtually no black Republicans for a variety of understandable reasons, i.e., racism, bigotry, open discrimination, etc., just to name a few. And what drives it all? Republican leadership from the top down of course.

Here's a good example from our own state as reported by PeachPundit.com , a conservative website. The subject of the article is Michael McNeely, Chairman of the Georgia Black Republican Council, and yes, he's black.

"Michael McNeely, announced candidate for 1st Vice Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, went to his county’s precinct mass meeting this past Saturday, but apparently there was some shabby behavior lead by Douglas County Republican Party board member Jack Gamel to shut McNeely out of the process according to 3rd Vice Chairman Brian Tolar:

At the Mirror Lake precinct table today, Douglas County GOP Board Member Jack Gamel led an effort to refuse Michael McNeely (a strong conservative and 1st Vice-Chair of the Douglas County GOP) a precinct delegate spot. There were 15 delegate slots available and only five people present, yet Jack insisted in his action. Jack’s petty old white man politics targeted one of the rising African American stars of Georgia and National GOP leaders. By a 3-2 vote, Jack’s efforts were successful."

Republicans truly have no desire to have an inclusive party. However they do want to win the White House! This will never happen again as long as the racist on the ground (like JimStein) are allowed to dictate. Believe it or not the same thing happened here in Camden last year against Ron Paul supporters.

After reading the link in post 1, ugggghhh! So sad racism is still prevelant in 2013.

Jay he is NOT a tea partier nor a Paulbots. He is a very successful, intelligent black man who has been very active in the Republican party.

Herman Cain was my first choice for the Republican nomination.

I still think he is the best qualified to fix the country's financial problems.

the issue with Michael McNeely was resolved, he is seated as a Delegate to his county convention and the STATE CHAIR stated that the actions in his precinct were wrong and unjust. The fact is he is a prominant member of the Republican Party and he deserved to be a part of the county convention process as a delegate HE DID SHOW UP, more than what I can say for many people who call themselves Republican but cannot seem to get up on a Saturday morning and come to the conventions and be a part of the process. As for the Paulbots having the same thing happen, YES it did happen, and some situations were dealt with, others not so much. the main problem there was that the Ron Paul supporters had not been INVOVLVED for anything else other than the convention cycle, this year the remaining Paulbots who have stayed and been involved int he party are and have been welcomed with open arms for the most part. Honestly I am not happy that this happened to Michael it was unjust and unfair but it did shed light on an issue, which is the GOP will never grow by shutting out good and willing people who want the same things that the PARTY stands for, it is not the party of the old white man, it is for everyone! That is something that the Republican party at large needs to be reminded of, and that is why so many people turn away from the Republican party. Read what the Republican party actually stands for, it is for us ALL.

Actually, it's racist bigots like you, combined with destructive policies that keep black citizens out of the Republican Party.
