    I think more than anything what Tim Scott's election highlights is that race does matter to Republicans as much as it does to Democrats. Why wouldn't it? Political parties are trying to make their product appealing to their target demographics. With that said, let's face it, the neoliberal economic policies of the modern Republican party simply do not appeal to minorities or even first generation immigrants. Ironically, most minorities tend to be socially conservative. So why haven't Republicans been able to tap into them for nearly 60 years? Well, it's mostly because historically, black Republicans voted for things that modern day Republicans would find unthinkable. This is what Black Republicans did for South Carolina:

    South Carolina African Americans - Major Events in Reconstruction Politics

    established a balanced, tripartite form of government for the first time in South Carolina's history

    established comprehensive local governments, replacing the patchwork of specialized commissions which handled everything from roads to welfare

    created a detailed Declaration of Rights which mandated political equality regardless of race

    mandated state-wide public education for the first time

    established a welfare program for the poor, aged, and disabled that was channeled through county governments

    removed the requirement of owning property in order to vote.
    South Carolinian (black) Republicans were very in tune with progressive ideas however, they were not the only ones. Other Republicans like Blanche K. Bruce also stood in favor of social programs to help the needy. Bruce even supported expanding federal government's role in education. Now compare that to the modern Republican party which stands in favor of economically gutting the department of education, ending welfare programs or cutting more and more people out on the 'pull yourself up by the bootstraps' arguments and you'll see that the Republicans lost the black vote not because blacks were brainwashed but because white Republicans stopped supporting progressive causes.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    That is simply not true. I live in a county that is predominately White of one end and predominately black on the other. Same funding, same curriculum yet the black schools are perennial failures and the White schools get national awards for excellence.

    Recognizing the existence of systemic privilege is not excusing anyone. Failing to recognize systemic privilege is a childish and ignorant attempt to demonize blacks as inferior.

    Take the difference between test scores, make it a percentage and there you have a quantification of systemic privilege.

    Unless you want to provide more details your antidotal evidence has no credibility in this discussion.

    Yes, actually, I am. Both are racist. Neither have lynched anyone in recent history. Join the modern day.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
