Tim Scott's his name, conservative Christian principals are his game! Not sure how the left will react here; he's black, conservative, and the supposed southern racists voted for him more than Strom Thurmonds son. Let's see if this can be an "Uncle Tom" free thread, pleeeeeeeeease.

Why don't conservatives ever say:
"... he's white, conservative and the supposed sourthern racists voted for him..."

Any reason why conservatives only do that with black republican politicians
,
introducing him as if they were saying:
"I know, this is going to sound insane, I don't even know how this is possible,
but this guy is black and conservative,
I don't know how it's possible,
but racist liberals are going to go insane when they see that this black guy isn't a liberal like all black people"

FYI,
people's political views have nothing to do with their color of skin.

I believe the answer is to make the very point you made at the end of your post.

Tim Scott sounds like a good candidate from what I hear. What's he really like?

He's good. Paul Thurmond is a good candidate as well. Both are good options, but Tim Scott is the frontrunner.

Couldn't agree more, however whenever a leftist poster keep saying that we are racist because there are no black conservative senators or congressman, I have never seen you post that. Yet now, when I post something to contradict that narrow minded view, all of a sudden you show up. Pretty convenient.
