During last week's debate between Steele and five other candidates for Republican National Committee chairman, he continued the sentiment by accusing his party of "rolling out" black members as tokens, for media consumption. Article here!
My take is that No special effort should be made to convert African American voters because they are African Americans. The GOP needs to explain its philosophy and convince people, all people that its is for their benefit. I agree the Republicans do need a fresh face, and more importantly, they need someone who can go to the inner city, into the Black community, and into the Latino community and talk about why Blacks should vote for conservative measures. I don't believe it Mr. Steele, because his image among the black community is not one of like.
News "FLASH" as long as African American see hate as the root of the party it's no way I can vote for it again ( I voted for Bush) . Don't get it wrong! Democrats have the same problem but, have mastered hiding it. Any way when you have the root of the Republican party like, Sara Palin, Russ Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and Hannity as the repersenters of the party. You can forget it. Honestly, Colin Powell said it best "hate must not be embraced."
