Tag Archives: Blacks In the GOP
A Black Liberal cyber friend wrote in commentary, “the GOP will never nominate a Black”. This is a profound statement and I am sure he thinks it is the truth and it may well be, but I have heard many Conservatives on talk radio express the opposite opinion.
Let me start by saying Conservatives and Republicans may swim in the same pond, but since Reagan, there have been some major differences. A Republican will consider a Conservative part of the GOP, but many Conservatives are looking at the profligate and capitulating behavior of GOP members in Washington with indignation, while wondering if they may as well be whispering to a typhoon. Consequently, many Conservatives only consider ourselves Republicans by default; with resignation, many Conservatives feel the GOP is their only option.
