    I don't understand why this makes some people angry when I point out these truths about the Republican Party.

    There is NOTHING wrong with a political party being 90% white and mostly Christian.

    Some studies say the party could be as little as 89% white. Not a lot of difference.

    This is why the Republican Party is the most powerful in the US, because they are a block. The vote as a block. They see their interests as the same.

    It's not about who you are, but what you do.

    The criticism hasn't been about the party being white, but about the party voting against the interests of the "middle class". The perception that the party works for the interests of corporations over the interests of the average American Citizen.

    There are more black Republicans running for Congress than there are pro-life Democrats.

    People do not always report their party affiliations accurately to pollsters, and they do not always vote in line with their party. Is Nikki Haley white? Is Bobby Jindal white?

    WTF is your point, rdean? Are you implying every Jew or Muslim in America is a Democrat?

    Get over yourself. People vote as they believe, not by their race or religion.

    Well, the primary data are now in — and Johnson’s claim that 2010 would be a record year is out the window. Only 13 African Americans are left running for the House on the GOP ticket this fall. That’s a higher number than in recent cycles, but nowhere near record levels — and far below the number running just a decade ago.

    The highest number of African Americans to run for the House as Republican Party nominees came in 1994, when 24 ran for office — and just one, J.C. Watts, won office. Despite the fact that 79 African Americans ran as GOP House nominees over the next decade, and 5 won nominations in Senate fights, according to Joint Center data, none were able to replicate Watts’s feat and win a general-election battle for the Republicans.

    Not a record year for black Republicans, after all | Politerati

    I'm sorry "Poopsie". I'm sorry I rained on your parade. This is why you guys hate me so. FACTS are such a drag to your imaginary world view. Shame.

    Jews? Not so sure. Muslims? Do you really think that after the last couple of months, there is a single one left in the Republican Party? Seriously?

    rdean, is there a point to all this race-baiting?
