    Who cares? You do, or you wouldn't be in this thread.

    Anything positive to add about this young woman?

    I love when the right refers to black people they approve of with sterile, faux-respectful phrases like "this young woman". Normally, the right just refers to black people as "leeches", "welfare queens", "thugs" and "brainwashed." I guess moving from overt racism to token worship is some kind of progress.

    The rarity makes this all the more funny. It's as if they think a single Black Republican elected official answers to the homogeneity of their party/ideology. If anything, it shows how seriously they do take accusations of racism given how important it is for them to trot out their few black members.

    Neat thoughts. Thanks for sharing. Mia Love isn't a young woman? That's what most people would call a woman in her early 30s. Which one of those would you call her - a leech, a welfare queen, a thug, or brainwashed?

    Not only that but from the immigration aspect as well. Her parents came here on a tourist visa, not as legal immigrants. Then once she was born here, an 'anchor baby' as some love to call it, the family was able to secure their future here. I don't really care myself but it reminds me of someone here who is quite against 'anchor babies', suddenly has no issue with it in this case. Had it been an 'anchor baby' Hispanic democrat I would have loved to see his reaction there.


    Anyway, I'm glad for Ms. Love and wish her the best.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I didn't comment on whether or not she was a young women, I commented on your word choice. As far as which racist name I would call her? I wouldn't call her any. I'm not on the right.

    Some people just don't get it. If the Republicans didn't actually have a history of having racists undertones then this one congresswoman shouldn't be having this ticker tape parade. The way they are drooling over her is if she had discovered the cure for Ebola. The one accomplishment listed was her persuading developers to spray for flies.

    It reminds me of those people who like to point out to you that they do have one black friend. Ok.
    I don't think the Republican party today is racist nor do I think the Mormon church is racist. But one cannot deny that the Mormons didn't feel black should hold superior office in its church until 1978.

    So continue with the ticker tape parade you finally have that one black friend.

    Ah, I get it now. I'm a bad person for calling her a young woman. Neat! What would have been a more appropriate name for her then?

    I'm not a racist nor "on the right", so I wouldn't call her a racist name. That seems to disappoint you.

    I am hoping that we will eventually be able to destroy the image that Republicans hate minorities and women. Those are two of the biggest lies of my lifetime, and it just pisses me off that dems have been able to use those lies for their own gains for decades.
    The only thing that is going to change that image is a change in Republican philosophy and actions. Sorry...you may not like it, but the truth is the truth. Republican policies are often anti-minority and anti-women. Have a black face in the form of Mia Love isn't going to change that any more than having a black face in Condoleeza Rice or any other figurehead the GOP wants to throw up.

    You know, I agree. It's terrible that people are saying anything good about her.
