I must go feed the horses now. While I am doing that I shall ask them why saying that all tea party members are racist is not a form of bigotry. I am sure that I will get a more intelligent response from them.

Black republicans are wanting to be with people that will never fully accept them as equal. That is my problem with black re pubs. I have allot of conservatives views. I have even voted locally for re pubs but I will never support a party that uses the southern strategy.

I am not active in the tea party but I approve of their spirit and activism, not always with their candidates. Why wouldn't I ? Americans should not be happy with the status quo when the country is in such bad shape.....

Why don't you explain what you consider to be the "southern strategy" and I'll give it a try.
