Good luck winning over blacks to the Republican side of the aisle when you believe they're too dumb or too easily manipulated to see the Republican way! That in itself reeks a little of racism.

They are philosophies and I will break it down to its lowest common ednominator for you. One philosophy believes it is the strength of the individual that leads to the greater strength of the whole and one believes it is the strength of the whole that leads to the greater strength of the individual

That is it in a nutshell friend and anyone that tries to tell you any different is trying to sell you a bill of good. You have already bought into a lot of rotton goods. How many times do they have to hand you the bag before you don't have to look inside any more to know it is rotten?

I made no claim. I stated a fact and asked a question. It is a fact there are no black Republicans in the US Congress. Why is it not fair to ask why? There are many democratic minorities in the US Congress. This too is an indisputable fact.

Do statistics, voting patterns, and core consitutencies mean anything to you?

From your simple-minded post, I would guess not.

So the problem is not with the Republican Party's ideology the problem is with the voters? LOL It was only the last election that the GOP put a woman on the ticket as VP. This 25 years after Democrats put Ferraro on the ticket.

The minority of blacks in the Republican party are ridiculed for not being one of them. The masses.
Review the history of blacks and the republican party, and they use to vote republican for many years.

African Americans in the United States Congress - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The "new deal" gave Many black Americans a new political direction.

Read this very closely. If you were a black person living in 19th century America, which party would you align yourself with? Then, think about which party blacks continued to align themselves with for the next 100 years. And in 1960 when a jailed Dr. King is convinced by a Democratic presidential candidate to switch parties and put his support behind that candidate in exchange for getting him out of jail, is it any surprise that Democrat is practically the default choice of blacks today?

No, between the lines you made a claim and have over and over...you said if Republicans are not racists how come bla bla bla? yes, you are saying they are racists and most have tried to get through to you, there have been many very successful and well liked black Republicans. Just because, right now there are none in the congress means nothing when it come to racism..

He was a congressman, not senator but you are completely right otherwise. He was black, from a southern state (some call it southwest or midwest) he was very popular, and many were disappointed when he decided to return to private life. In fact the Republicans were hoping he would run for governor in OK this year..

You want the reason why there arent as many black republicans, I'll give you one reason, because the race hustlers like Jesse Jackson, the entire Democratic Black Caucus, Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan have all but made any black man into a race traitor and an Uncle Tom, if they claim to be a republican or a conservative.

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?

The RW desperation knows no bounds.
Maybe none now, but what about Ben Nighthorse Cambpell from Colo. Democrat swithced to Republican and was elected twice.
