    Welcome to the Frederick Douglass Foundation

    Stop ignoring us and start getting ready for 2016. Don’t believe for an instant you can win then by just shouting the conservative message louder. You have to state the message smarter, and you have to stop shouting it to the choir, but singing it to the world. The urban game is changing. If you can change with it, you will find black and Latino conservatives ready to build a better Republican Party, and one that can win. That’s what we mean by “Urban Game Changers.” We can change this game. Won’t you join us?

    If I wanted to be a Democrat I'd be a democrat.

    That's why you lost, lost, lost and will lose again.

    Stop seeing colors and start seeing human beings.

    Willow, did you read the article?

    From the article:

    It is time to lay down the tracks of a new “underground railroad,” a movement to help a people who are in bondage to the Democratic Party find hope and encouragement in the GOP, a movement that will wake up complacent Democrats and Republicans alike, a movement that will stop the hemorrhaging of the GOP. We will not be televised – the mainstream media can’t imagine that we exist and we remain invisible to them – but we will be webvised, we will be heard online through bloggers, videos, e-mails and text messages, twitters, Facebook and more. We can no longer be shut out. We are the voice of the 21st century and we will be heard. If the RNC continues to think of blacks and Latinos as an afterthought, the GOP will continue its genteel decline and forfeit any chance of victory in 2016.

    I just got to say that this IS EXTREMELY RACIST. As racist as anything I've ever said.

    FAct is, a lot more people are very comfortable with a social safety net, hell, even a bit of an unearned handout, even if it means everyone pays a bit more to the government.

    There is a demographic change, AND an ideals shift. "Generation ME!" is in their late 20's, pushing 30's, and a new generation is turning 18 and above. That generation was raised on the value of collective good, volunteerism, helping the needy, etc, etc, etc. "Generation Peace Corp" or something.

    But they value the idea of everyone paying some of what they have for the collective good.

    the GOP should emphasize the racist rhetoric of the dems and their minority minions in the next election cycle.

    This would be one place to start as well as Obama racist rhetoric.
