The brother merely craves the spotlight of being the newest Uncle Tom in a nearly all-white party.

Seeing how "black Republicans" like Mia Love, Herman Cain, and Allen West end up as spectacular fails, white Republicans always end up throwing their "Uncle Toms" under the bus.

well they have to find a token. the democrats have done it. although it was a total failure, it seems very popular to be black, even if you aren't.

The two parties rarely speak to each other, yet they share the same agenda; Preservation of the political class.

It's just more Republicrat nonsense.

The proper name is Democratic Party. Are conservatives too stupid to know that or do they use the wrong name intentionally?

I guess Guillory is the GOP's next "great black hope". There have been so many recently - Steele, Cain, West, Love and that doctor that conservatives were all gaga over for about two weeks. The average shelf life for a Republican's black friend is very short.

Funny how a black man can only be "wise and honorable" so long as he's a Republican in the eyes of conservative white folks.

And you wonder why blacks reject the Republican Party.
Since the African American community as a whole faces a number of problems that they don't seem to be interested in fixing any time soon and they continue to vote for Democrats who cause those problems over and over and over again in the 95% range.

This crap is condescending.

Again, you folks refuse to see why most blacks want nothing to do with the GOP, and stuff like this is part of the reason why.
Blacks need to listen because he's right and if black people did listen they wouldn't face many of the problems that the black community deals with daily.

I don't really care if you feel that this is condescending, deal with it.

Name one of these "spectacular failures" that hasn't been attacked 24/7/365 by ignorant black people who can't stand to see another black person succeed without the help of the US government's hand the whole way.

When Democrats start to believe in democracy I'll call them the Democratic party, until then I'll call them whatever I like.

Wise yes. If you listen to his video everything he said is true and wise. Only blacks that would rather game the system and suck off the government would not think what he says is wise. There is no mystery why blacks like the big government giveaway democrats. Personally I think he is joining a sinking ship. He should be a conservative
