    Nope. It just speaks to the fact that the GOP mostly judges people by who and what they are as people and not by the color of their skin. If Scott had depended on Obama to open any doors for him, he wouldn't have been considered for dog catcher.

    Really? Reading this thread, it's not conservatives harping on race?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    The OP did refer to race so of course race will be discussed in this thread. But being fixated on race? Very few conservatives are guilty of that.

    I'm waiting to hear how unions hurt blacks the worst.
    Yet today it is democrats who are attempting to taunt blacks into going to the polls by bringing of those old jim crow laws and segregation. Go figure!

    Yep. The democrats have been using the race baiting tactic so long, they have worn it out and it's no longer that effective. Hopefully they finally learned that Tuesday night.

    Would you like to see some ridiculous rhetoric from other parties? Let's not pretend any party is innocent of such nonsense.

    Shall we conclude from Glen Beck's Department of Godwins that Republicans are motivated by the belief that Obama is a Kenyan Muslim terrorist bent on bringing forth the 12th Imam and declaring himself the Fuehrer?

    Exactly. They cannot win in an arena of ideas and policy, so they taunt with race baiting and war on women rhetoric.

    COLUMBIA, South Carolina South Carolina voters have sent Republican Tim Scott back to the U.S. Senate, making him the first black candidate to win a statewide race since just after the Civil War. Scott was declared the winner based on projections from exit poll data.

    Scott has served in the U.S. Senate since January 2013, appointed to the post by Gov. Nikki Haley after Jim DeMint resigned. He has spent his time quietly building support back home and expanding his base from Charleston. His seat will be up for re-election for a full term in 2016. Scott is also the first African-American senator from the South since Reconstruction.

    A historic achievement! Congrats to Scott for this.

    Hopefully he wont receive the same guff he got last time from the democrat party.

    This is historic. Thanks for posting.
