There are ZERO black Republicans in the US Congress. Why is that? The logical answer is that the Republican base is racist.

Really... racist?
Senator Byrd, a high ranking KKK member is a democrat.
MLK was a republican, before JFK talked him into the entitlement programs set up by the Democrats, to get all blacks on welfare.

Has any qualified Black Republicans run for congress and been elected by their state or is this just another race card play?

No, the logical answer is the democrats have pulled the wool over the eyes of the black population so long with their pandering vote who,re approach to politics that blacks by majority have preferred the coo laid to the bread. If a black ran for office on the conservative side he would have a very good chance of winning. Don't think there aren't black conservaties out there my friend. Let me give you a good piece of advice. Those black conservatives are doing very well.

Oh, BTW, surely you have heard of J.C.

Why would Democrats vote for a Republican? The question put forth is why do REPUBLICANS not elect BLACK REPUBLICANS to be their representatives in the US Congress?
