    I dont doubt they do, and vice versa. But that does not make Tim Scott (whom I have heard speak, hes very good) a token anything. You are diminishing him to suggest as much.

    Yep. Many suggest that one liner played a big part in Reagan's victory.

    Well let's see. The most recent time was Tuesday, November 4, 2014 when the 2nd Congressional District of New Hampshire re-elected Congresswoman Annie Kuster (D) over her Republican challenger Marilinda Garcia.

    He admitted it. He was so far behind in the polls that he said he had to do something to give himself a chance, and he saw her as the chance he needed. Of course, it didn't help one bit.

    No, he's only attempting to diminish him...and not succeeding.

    The NAACP continually perpetuates the stereotype that you have to meet certain criteria to be authentically black. It's an extension of a sub set within black culture that to be authentically black you have to be immersed in popular black culture. Both of these attitudes are repressive and perpetuate racism in America. Simply, to be authentically black in the eyes of the NAACP you have to be liberal politically. I really don't fully understand why that has anything to do with ethnic authenticity. Most black conservatives who are spokespeople for conservatism are self made with strong support from strong families. They are people with no boundaries who don't feel limited by color. Spokespeople for black liberalism see themselves as black first who see liberalism as a way to force legal measures along racial boundaries. As a white guy who is outside looking in, I appreciate blacks who treat me as an equal rather than someone whose ancestors suppressed their ancestors. I am a second generation of Norwegian descent and the only people my ancestors suppressed were Saxons for God sake.

    I believe if there were more black conservatives there would be less racism and I'm glad there are people like Tim Scott, Mia Love, Herman Cain and Condi Rice as examples of what's right with America.

    So. Without my knowing who's who, are any of you guys not straight white males? (OK, OK, I did cheat a little. You know, gender icons.)
    And your point would be?
