Blacks and persons of color, in prominent roles either as delegates or party officials at last week's 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, talked to the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder about why they are proud of being a Republican.
The GOP's Renee Amoore was a featured speaker at the convention. She has been a force to be reckoned with throughout the state of Pennsylvania as well as nationally and internationally.
Her life has been full of firsts, including being the first Black ever elected to the Upper Merion (Pennsylvania) School District: first as vice president, then as president when her predecessor stepped down due to health reasons. She was also elected chairwoman of the 2004 Pennsylvania Republican delegation.
"It is difficult to be the first in anything," says Amoore, founder and president of The Amoore Group, Inc., a conglomerate of four entities. "Being the first, I had to prove as an African-American and a woman that we could make those things happen."
On being a Republican she says, "For too long, the Democrats have taken us [Blacks] for granted."
She continues, "In Pennsylvania [Blacks] were Republicans up to the 1950s. We came from down South being Republicans, and then all of a sudden, we flipped the script.
"Even though I am a Republican, it does not mean that I agree with everything the Republicans do. When I don't agree, I am in their face."

And, if Obama becomes prez, that will only get worse.
Here’s another one you will like. Sadly, in the comments under the video the man is being verbally attacked by liberals. Feel free to FREEP the comment section to show the man he has support.
Bob Parks, let’s hear from you!
American Heritage- Slavery, Democrats, amendments, KKK
The KKK was started by Democrats.
Thank you for the links. I was very fortunate to study for two semesters African American History from slavery into the 1980s. It makes me that much more angry that the Dems and the black community have lived together in the bile of repression and oppression when it comes to blacks in America. The Democrats were not their friends before and are not now. Travesty really. Thanks again.
The Democratic Abortion Platform is no friend to mankind. They offer forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge:
15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but underneath are ravenous wolves.
By their fruits you will know them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?
Just so, every good tree bears good fruit, and a rotten tree bears bad fruit.
A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a rotten tree bear good fruit.
Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.
So by their fruits you will know them.
