    You illustrate my point: you think black people are stupid enough to fall for the fear tactics, forever.

    No, it does not "continue to do so". Blacks are as free as anyone else to vote for Republicans or be Republicans. There are and have been black Republicans. She isn't the first.
    Can't you just smell the desperation?

    I don't know if it's desperation or something else, but it's been a while since I saw a thread that contained so many lying posts and so many off the wall posts. The election of a black conservative female is sure upsetting a lot of posters.

    That's because it isn't suppose to happen.

    Just like the election of a black dem male upset a lot of right wingers, right?

    Must be why Republicans are so wildly popular in the South. And what - 1970 was a hundred years ago? That sort of mindset doesn't disappear overnight. Saying there are and have been black Republicans says nothing. So what? Until the Republican party demonstrates that it gives a damn about black voters - or Hispanic voters - and stops actively courting the southern white bigot vote, it will remain irrelevant to minority voters.

    No, it happens. And when it does happen, the Far Right acts as though the world has now changed in their favor. It's an anomaly, just like Alabama electing a liberal white guy to anything would be.
