Maybe one day a white Republican could vote for a black candidate. You are proving the OPs point.

I think a lot of people have answered it very well already inclusive of myself.

So, by your standards, your state is full of sexists, bigots and racists. And the same can be applied to any blue state that does not have women, blacks, Hispanics, Asians etc.... representing their state.

I am speaking of the Republican base. Of course individuals may vary. If racism is not the source then explain why there are no black republicans in Congress?

Its like telling someone they're racist because they aren't in an interracial marriage or telling someone they're anti-gay simply because they didn't participate in a Gay Pride parade.

Wtf is up with these other minorities having such an inferiority complex? We Asians don't seem to have that issue.

If there were currently any black Republican congressmen, you would label them all Uncle Toms.
