    TBH no direct numbers from the Republican Party that I can find. However there are many things that point to it. Election's, polls, reports from national conventions about numbers of minorities there, and lately during the leadership meeting, 4 black representatives out of 100+ people. All this and more points to a big problem drawing in black and minority representation not to mention votes.

    If these people don't want to join the Republican party then that is not its fault. It has its agenda and part of that is a respect for the Anglo-American and Judeo-Christian culture of the US, just as part of it is respect for small business and free entreprise that doesn't get them much support from big labour unions.
    I agree, but why do they not want to join or vote for the Republican party? Is it because the all are leftists non religious? Hardly. Are they all muslims? Hardly. Is it because they believe (correct or falsely) that the Republicans do not represent their values? That the Republican party is seen as to have targeted in a negative way their minority or others for whatever reason? Do you think the rabid anti illegal stance that many in the Republican party have, which has warped into a defacto targeting of the Hispanic community.. actually draw in the legal Hispanics? Do you think that when right wing members of this forum and right wing talking heads say that the reason that the US teen pregnancy rate is due to the black minority.. does this help drawing in the black community?

    But back to the main issue.. denying that race issues is not a factor and a problem is being a coward, and yes the Republicans (just look at this thread) are therefore cowards.

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Is that the SONG is a parody NOT of Mr. Obama, but rather an opinion peice in the LA Times. The origin of the song:

    Obama the 'Magic Negro' - Los Angeles Times

    No one cried racist then, but they do... because a conservative singer, who works with Rush Limbaugh did the song.


    Racism is a bad thing, but hypocrisy and spreading lies is just as bad.
    Gee, no comment PeteEU?

    Re: Holder: US is nation of cowards on racial matters

    Holder says we are cowards, well I guess us peckerwoods are a bunch of damn racist. Wait a miniute, 43% of white voters voted for Obama. Thats more voters than all of the African American and Latino voters combined. My caucasian 68 year old father and his 67 year old communist wife voted for Obama. Are they cowards too? Or is it just those of us who disagree with Obama's politics who are cowardly racist?

    I must have missed that post.
    How do I answer?
    I'm not a Democrat.
    Byrd, former Senate leader for the D's was with the KKK.
    The Dead Kennedy's were pretty tight with the Nazi's.
    Not particularly well known for their racial tolerance.

    Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    ...Kennedy's views of the Jews as a people were, by his own admission, overwhelmingly negative.

    According to Harvey Klemmer, who served as one of Kennedy's embassy aides,... When Klemmer returned from a trip to Germany and reported the pattern of vandalism and assault on Jews by Nazis, Kennedy responded "well, they brought it on themselves."

    Kennedy had a close friendship with Nancy Astor; the correspondence between them is reportedly replete with anti-Semitic tropes.[17] As Edward Renehan notes:

    As fiercely... anti-Semitic, Kennedy and Astor looked upon Adolf Hitler as a welcome solution to both of these "world problems" (Nancy's phrase)...."[18]
    Such a compassionate party and family.
    Anti-Semite, Nazi supporting, manslaughter committing, boot-leg running bunch of misfits.

    And this is Their Royalty.
    Your American Royalty.

    My guess is that those of us(cowards) who see a problem with such racial preferences as ; The Black Caucuses, Black Policemens Associations, American Negroe College funds, Racial Quotas/ Blacks before whites hiring practices, Affirmative action,etc,etc,etc,... we are the cowards causeing the racial devides to percist. The likes of Malcom X , jesse Jackson, and Eric Holder, are all healers. WE cowards cause all of the social ills to percist, and at times become inflamed. NOTICE; To any and all races,...If you want to be a part of it all join the HUMAN RACE.

    You aren't showing why any of this is wrong or racist.

    Oh nevermind, once you have to explain it, it's not funny anymore.

    Perhaps you are telling the truth looking back. You went wrong with the first line, it was too random and serious. Stick to your day job.

    Re: Holder: US is nation of cowards on racial matters

    Everybody I know calls black people "black." And this is not something we do behind their backs. They call me "white."

    I don't think 'negro' or 'African American' is appropriate. It sounds like the person has never met a black person before and might start touching their hair if they ever did meet one. Seriously, you'd get funny looks.

    *

    You can call that monkey cartoon racist or you can be called racist for assuming the monkey is black.

    Whatever our ancestors' crimes, we've paid for them, and then some.
    I think a lot of non blacks feel the same way. People are tired of being called racist when they are not.
