    For the GOP — a house divided that faces significant demographic hurdles to winning the White House in 2016 even as it celebrates President Obama’s shellacking — this was huge. A party threatened with electoral extinction among African Americans and immigrants now has someone to brag about in Washington. In a wave election less about fresh Republican ideas than fervid disapproval of all things presidential, Love’s compelling personal story is an oasis. 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.
    I certainly wouldn't call all republicans racist, sexist and homophobic.

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.
    Your statement is true. Some people vote democrat blindly. Just like there are some people who vote republican blindly. I know that for a fact living in Dallas.

    Also, you would be amazed at how manly black people who are conservative. Think about it.

    1) We take our faith very serious
    2) We don't trust government (do research on the black panther movement)
    3) As a whole, we are probably more anti homosexual than any race out there.

    What is stoping many blacks from switching to conservative is the feeling of being the enemy to many in your base. Primarily in the southern and midwest region.

    Race-based is what racism is. As long as we support the idea of defining people by race, we will fight racism. The Klan was a race-based organization, Nation of Islam is a race-based organization and in both cases it is the fact that they are race-based that makes them racist. We need to stop defining people by race and anything that doesn't do that is racist.
    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush

    I remember Mia Love, back in 2012 liberals called Mia an "anchor baby."

    You poor victim.
