In recent times, it has been suggested that the Republican party has become the party of white men. This has never been more true than it is today. Between Congress and the Senate, Republicans can claim exactly zero African Americans and one Jew; Eric Cantor, and he is a pathetic hypocrite.
To those still feeling defensive about the accusations of racism among Republicans, consider for a moment why there are ZERO elected Republican African Americans in our legislative branch. Its a hard fact to explain.
While we do see a few unelected token Republicans in the party, Michael Steele for instance, there is not much the party can do about the fact that the now 20% of Americans who self-identify as Republicans will simply NOT elect an African American.
Based on the evidence, of the two political parties in this country, one has become a small cluster of xenophobic, white supremacists?
Frankly, I don’t see how there is any hope for Republicans in 2010 elections
