LOL! Well, I wouldn't be surprised if Steele was leveraging this for every cent he can. He'll never have a better opportunity to grab the reigns of the rnc.

I certainly hope you're right about that. Sadly, neither party has a monopoly on poor judgement. The good news is, once they expose themselves that gives Americans the opportunity to toss them aside.

The Dems have their own problems to don't compare their "anti-minority" elements to anything close to what the GOP puts out. That's absurd.
I never made comparisons of numbers just that it takes one to spoil a party. Don't know about you but I am Black and have known Racist of both parties who are in leadership positions within their communities and other aspects of their lives. We obviously live in different worlds but I really can't believe that every racist in Alabama is Republican or Independent?

I agree, I've had the same experience. Also, racism isn't the only way to show poor judgement... so yes, there are examples of bad judgement in every party. That idiotic speech writer who posted a video of himself fondling a cut out of Clinton had equally poor judgement, IMO. What a fool, he had a brilliant career ahead of him. But he committed political hari kari and I suspect Saltsman just did the same.

Yes it goes without saying that most people have a degree of racism within themselves. But only in the GOP do you find elements that promote racism. Rush Limbaugh is close to being the defacto leader of right wing movement in American today. And he's proud of his racism. As is this Tennessee redneck running for RNC chair.

Black republican conservatives get called names such as "Uncle Tom" and other derogatory names ... A cartoonist published some racist cartoons against Condoleeza Rice ... Those are a few examples. As Turborg mentioned, there are anti-minority fringes in both parties so let's knock of the democratic piety act ok?

Please give us a name of the Dem leader who did this, or distributes this material???? Do you have an example?


I doubt it.

Connie get with the program. The Dems had plenty of racists long ago. Most of them went GOP during and after the Nixon Administration. Your party is the party of racists...not the Dem party. ...Deal with it.

And I see you couldn't give us an example of Dem leaders drawing racist cartoons, or distributing them, or calling black GOP members "uncle toms"????

That's know as lying...Connie.
