As long as the Republican Party continues to dog whistle white racists, do you expect for that to change?

It won’t change until the focus of the Republican Party changes, which invariable will happen, when offending minorities is determined to no longer be politically profitable due to demographic change.

Actions have consequences.
Too simplistic. But not surprising coming from the Millennial set who think that the politics of race started with Barack Obama.

That’s exactly the false narrative that the liberal mainstream media has been disseminating for a long time. Republicans never condone racism of any kind.

And the Democratic stopped doing that in the mid 60's, and guess what, Black support for the GOP was cut in half after they started purging their party of the racists

Until the GOP does the same thing they will never get more than 20% of the Black vote, never ever.

Stop blaming Blacks for all your problems if you want their votes,

The black voters must be very content with the results in their lives of the policies enacted by Dem politicians nationally and locally. If not, 90 percent of blacks wouldn't vote for 'em. No other racial group votes in lockstep.

Open your damned eyes.

The GOP continued to receive a considerable number of black votes until the watershed election of 1964. The National Democratic Party embraced Civil Rights, over the fierce objections of southerners who moved from their affiliation with the Democrats (which had been tenuous since Strom Thurmond’s Dixiecrat movement of 1948) to a full embrace of the “Barry Goldwater” Republican Party. From that point on, overt appeals to white racism were part of the Republican playbook. Google Lee Atwater.

It remains true to this day.

Stop blaming Blacks for all your problems if you want their votes,
Stop blaming blacks for my problems? You mean like controlling over two thirds of governorships, congress, the White House, Supreme Court, most state legislatures? Trust, this isn't a post to blame black voters (of which I am one) for the "problems" faced by the GOP Rather, this is due to genuine concern for the black community.

And you're missing the point made earlier or are just still ignorant of history. Apart from the fact that Republicans aren't embracing racists, blacks were voting overwhelmingly for (in numbers that rival today's support) for a democrat party that openly supported racism, segregation, and Jim Crow. This, your "answer"--even if there was some historical truth to it--doesn't hold water.

Imagine saying blatantly racist stuff like this and wondering why black people think you and your party are racist.
