    Re-read my post and think a little more carefully, if you can help it. I know that may be a problem, but humor me.

    I dislike both the Uncle Tom moniker placed on African American conservatives as I do the welfare queen/thug rhetoric given by conservatives.


    Anyone who misjudges an entire group of people based on the actions of a few members of that group is a racist and/or bigot.

She’s not just a black face in what’s often described as a party full of angry old white men. She’s a path forward.

    Good for her. I've followed her for a while now. The daughter of Haitian immigrants.

    So much for all Republicans being racist and sexist.


    Some of the old white men in the GOP are racist and sexist homophobes-but not all of them.

    The same could be said for your left wing friends.

    Depends, will you still call Democrats racist after they elected the first black president? Doubt it.

    The same could be said of a lot of people on this planet, and I've said it.

    Those who ignore racism are doing nothing to speed up its demise.

    This just in!


    MILLIONS of republicans are not racist, nor sexist, support equal rights (SSM) and are Pro-choice
    thats nothing new and people should NEVER judge a group by some.

    But the problem is sheep still exists, bad media still exists and there are many republicans that are racist, sexist, against equal rights etc and they aren't outed for it. They are very squeaky wheels and tend to get the most attention. They try to make laws and policies also that get attention and not shut down.

    just like there are millions of lefties that have guns and support the 2nd people need to wake up to individuals and not focus on groups.


    lastly GOOD for Mia Love!!!!

    Black Republicans actually being elected to congress is kind of like finding black serial killers. It's possible, just rare. Let them have their moment, then point out they're catching up to Democrats.
