    It only becomes a problem when people use words like the n word, uncle tom, or whatever.

    With that being said, I hope she runs.

    No one in politics receives character attacks on the level of a conservative minority. And, the abuse is delivered with the comfort of a supportive media.

    Very true.

    I could care less about skin color if a person is qualified to do the job. Liberals think otherwise, they want it to look like conservatives are holding minorities back. It's sad, yet true.

    Republican Star Mia Love Gets Second Chance to Make Political History

    (Reuters) – Utah’s Mia Love, a Republican darling who could become the first conservative black woman elected to U.S. Congress, is getting a second, and likely better, chance to make history after narrowly losing to a popular incumbent Democrat in 2012.
    Love, 39, is a Mormon mother of three who is upending stereotypes about the state and its predominant faith. She locked up her party’s nomination to vie for an open seat in Utah’s 4th District at a state convention last month with an overwhelming 78 percent of the vote.
    The seat became available when Jim Matheson retired after seven terms in Congress as the heavily conservative state’s lone Democrat in Washington. Two years ago, the politically savvy son of a beloved Utah governor beat Love by fewer than 800 votes.
    If Love wins this time, she would become an unlikely champion in Washington of staunchly conservative views – limited government, fiscal discipline and state’s rights. The daughter of Haitian immigrants is pro-life, pro-gun and holds a concealed weapons permit.
