Short and sweet: Will people of color ever vote for the Republican Party again?At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

A local person of color that happens to be a radio host said that "the Republican Convention looked like a big glass of buttermilk with a few raisins in it" and that may be a fairly accurate interpretation of your party's reality.At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you."

The sad part of it is, it that they have been prey for the Democrats - the Dems have victimized them and addicted them to their own poverty.
The Dems have perpetrated govt. programs that have done very little except trap them in poverty - utterly and completely dependent upon those programs.
The dems have destroyed the schools in the areas they live, driven out the jobs they once held and allowed the criminals to run free in their neighborhoods.
Yet because they have been addicted to the programs that "help" them, they are also susceptible to the propaganda they hear from the liberal press.
They are unaware of the fight we REPUBLICANS put up for them in the Civil war - it was the very basis for our founding. They are unaware that we REPUBLICANS voted FOR the various Civil Rights acts while the MAJORITY of Democrats voted AGAINST them.
They are ignorant of the fact that ALL of the big name leaders of segregation were DEMOCRATS and all but a VERY few remained so.I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

Unless they quit listening to people who give them their opinions, a resounding no. People of color have historically voted for the Party of the hand out. I hold forth no hope for them. They are merely Lemmings who mindlessly vote for the DIMocRAT Party.Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

Poor people, whether they are black, white, yellow, red, purple, green...it doesn't matter. They have been voting democrat for the last 40+ years thinking things are going to change.
Guess what? They are still poor!! How often do you do the same thing over and over again expecting a different result? Isn't that the definition of stupid????
