    Yes, righties voting for a black republican proves they're not racist. Righties not voting for a black dem is of no significance

    And of course we all know that no other politicians' race and gender has ever been the topic of a news article or mentioned by anyone, right?
    Yess, blame it on Yahoo. Mentioning race and gender is divisive

    Except when you do it. Then it's "Yahoo made me do it"

There are whites who have been, and to a certain extent, still are that way, because they were raised in the south, where being democrat used to be a given. My father-in-law (who is no longer living) used to tell me about how his dad told him he had to vote democrat, because "you were born a democrat". THat is the kind of crap many people have been exposed to, and it's hard to break the mold that you are expected to conform to.
    Yes, blacks don't vote dem because they prefer the dems to repubs. They do it because they're expected to or because someone else told them to.

    As long as the repubs explain the black vote using language that portrays them as stupid and irresponsible, the black vote will continue to go dem

    A black female LDS right wing activist seems more like a rare novelty than the norm.

    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.
    Don't hold your breath. Remember that highest public office ever afforded to a black woman was Sec. State Condi Rice. If you were to listen to most liberals on Rep. racism/sexism, you would think that she never existed.

    Any caucus based on race is by definition racist. Hmmm.... Now which side of the aisle has a caucus based on race???
