    Name those alleged GOP objectives.

    the only people who publicly proclaim blacks are inferior are those who claim they need affirmative action

    LOL. Do you even read what you write. I have never seen anyone go to such lengths to defend something so stupid. Look, I am going to bow out of this conversation real soon. Seriously, this might be the dumbest conversation I have ever been in. You wont back down. You are going to defend this stupidity to your dying breath, so I am not going to waste much more time here with you.

    "My boy." A guy I've never voted for (since I don't live in Nevada), who is part of a party that I am not a member of.

    Yes, Harry Reid is solely responsible for Congressional gridlock.

    Onerous voter ID laws that disproportionately affect black voters; incessant demonization of the poor (a disproportionate number of which happen to be black); the Southern Strategy; some of the rhetoric used against Obama (sorry, but constantly referring to him as a "food stamp president" or "the Affirmative Action president" is not going to resonate well with black voters); "shucking and jiving"; openly courting birthers ... need I go on?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    You have avoided it, you continue to avoid it.
    Your suggestion that anyone in the GOP wants to repress the black vote is both dishonest and patently racist.

    I know you were. I was just pointing out that you happened to say something truthful. I knew you really weren't.

    Oh...you mean like when the Democrat Party in Alabama refused to register Condoleeza Rice's father to vote in the 1960s?

    Seriously, I have to write on the forum that the GOP has worked to limit the negotiating powers on wages.....by going after union power?

    Are there any intelligent RWer's here who can have an adult conversation with just the tiniest of historical honesty?

    Dude, your coming into this thread without reviewing it and jumping to the conclusion that I am unaware that extremist conservatives controlled the Southern Dems prior to the Southern Strategy...is so boring. I really frigging hate having to repeat every GD argument over and over....so do us all a favor....SKIM THROUGH THE THREAD.

    I don't think there is any question that the GOP ignores the black vote and tends to ignore the black plight in between election cycles (The left does the same thing on the latter). And I think a basic lack of effort in trying to include them in the party is itself a form of alienation. Look, republicans should actively court the black vote. They should set up shop in the heart of these liberal enclaves, hold rallies and town hall meetings, Show an interest and show how limited government and human liberty is the solution to their plight and how the welfare state destroys the human soul. GOP neglect of blacks and issues important to blacks is what alienates blacks for the GOP more than anything else, and allows the left to have success when they hurl the racism slur.
