It's so easy to label what you don't agree with. J.C. Watts has been out of office for far longer than Bush; if you're going to hold one out as still a
viable point for discussion, you must accept the other as well. It's nice that Watts met with your approval, but he's long gone. Colin Powell took a hand up...is he ruined too? Under the bus? RINO? I'm sure there's a label for him. Me, I'd say he's an honorable man who has tried to serve his country well, and is realistic enough to know that a hand up is often a hand out of one's difficulties, be it racism or poverty.

Senator Watts, if I well remember his name, was elected by Oklahoma's, which are mostly white.

There are no Native Americans in the Senate in the Republican Party either. Talk about a BS post.

Native American % of the population in the US is .8%. Seriously. GET REAL. Tom Cole (r) is the only member of the Senate or Congress of either party. I mean seriously...what a weak post.

Shall we go with Chinese?

Republicans are certainly racist & why they continue to fail America. Republicans are "dead thinkers" who have no place in our nation except the graveyard.

A Black Republican has a tough time getting elected, especially in Black districts.

I think the Republican party is *overall* racist. But that doens't meant that Republicans are more racist than Democrats.

Any Black Republican that comes a long calling BS on that is simply written off as an Uncle Tom! So the question becomes who is really the racist...........................
Well, where have you been. Couldn't rep you but I like it, right on, right on, right on! Right on Washington

NOt sure I agree with that at all... it sidesteps. Answer how it is that a man could never win in Maxine Waters district? Now here is a lady that should not win dog catcher in the Yukon and yet? Is tht racism you think? I think it is, blatant.

Blacks don't win as republicans not because of racism but because there are so few that adopt the philosophy. There are so few that adopt the philosophy because frankly they have been duped by the strategy of the left.

Yet there is so my evidence, it is just the opposite.

Do they run and are not winning primaries? Because that's the only way you can blame Republican voters.

But you know, it's not like Congress has such great approval ratings that one would hold those jobs in such high esteem to have people beating down the Capitol doors for them. Didn't "Used Car Salesman" beat "Congressman" in some recent poll?

I watch Glenn Beck. Successful black conservative business men and women seem to be making good money and have "prestige" to go along with their names just like the white ones and the brown ones who eschew Congress. The problem is no one is giving them a forum to talk about their success and so-called black leaders never mention them in public.

On TV, right now, the black businessmen you usually see are drug dealers. When is the last time you saw a family oriented conservative black businessman, who wasn't the bad guy, on some sitcom or drama? Come to think of it, when was the last time you saw a white one of those?
