Did they vote for any black Republicans? If not, they are RACIST!

First off my parents are life long Democrats. Secondly there are no black Republicans on the ballot to vote for. That is kinda my point. Thanks

Coakley, if elected, would be Massachusetts' first woman elected to the US senate, does that make them sexists? Its childish to play the race game by looking at something as inane as who people elected to the senate or congress.

This is a legitimate issue, not a TOS violation, as much as some would like it to be. The opposition must be very embarrassed to be seen so clearly as Caucasian-oriented.

Her we go again with the whining. I asked a question of the op, what about J.C. Watts he never responded. One of the best know congressman to evr come out of oklahoma. In fact, I can't tell you one freaking congressman from Oklahom but I sure as hell know who J.C. Watts happens to be. A very brillian guy. One of those that did not wait for a handout but took a handup.

Try to be remotely accurate. His involvement in the KKK was in the 1940's. Over 60 years ago.

Raise the issue, but at least be credible. Jeesh.

See post # 21. I said JC Watts was the last black Republican in the US Congress. I also said that was in the 90's.
'Thanks for making my point that there are NO black Republicans currently serving in the US Congress. JC Watts was the last. That was in the 90's. Condi and Powell both were APPOINTED. Neither was an elected official.'

You've never heard of Tom Cole? He currently occupies Watts old seat. He was also the chairman of the NRCC from 2006-2008?
