Tea Party Could Put Record Number of Black Conservatives in Office
New American ^ | 29 October 2010 | Raven Clabough

Posted on 10/31/2010 4:52:23 PM PDT by kingattax

Despite allegations of racism in Tea Party organizations, the Republican Party, and conservative groups, 2010 has witnessed more black Republican activism than ever before. Thirty-seven African Americans in 16 states have been in contention for seats in the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives this year.

Fox News reports, “The Republican Party is hoping to put a record number of African Americans in Congress after Tuesday’s election; despite the fact the first black president is highly unpopular within the party.”

Obama is bi racial, not black.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have one more black conservative in Congress than black liberal and have the conservatives take over the so-called Black Caucus?

File this under 'Headlines you won't see in the NYT'.

Move along... no punchlines for Bill Maher or John Stewart here.

Oh, yeah, we're racists, we are....

Sooner or later that old dog ain't gonna hunt, and people will wake up.

(btw, the black conservatives running are as sharp as any candidates in the field. It's going to be tough for the MSM to refute the reality of what's happening because of the Tea Party movement.

Why does this matter? We are the party that doesn’t take a persons skin color into account. Unlike the Dumocraps. All we care about is that persons ability to do the job. Race should never matter. It only matters to those who wish to divide this great republic!

Obama, who he is and what he is, is EXACTLY why the Founding Fathers made it a requirement that those would seek the highest office in the land were natural born citizens. Obama is not, and it's abundantly clear why that's important. Talk about irony!

So the vanilla-tinted MSM called black candidates “Uncle Toms?” Smart.

Uncle Tom was a hero.

Free Republic, Fox News, Washington Times et al are the new MSM.

The Republican Party doesn’t *put* people in Congress.

Patriotic Americans offer their time and effort to serve the voters as citizen representatives. Party affiliation is secondary. Race is immaterial, but principles and honor are sacred.

Fortunately, conservatives of all backgrounds are finding the courage to run for elective office.

God Love You, Col. Allen West.

I’ve always been curious as to why the MSM and their allies us ‘Uncle Tom’ as a synonym for ‘traitor’. In the Harriet Beecher Stowe novel, Uncle Tom allowed himself to be beaten to death by Simon Legree and his henchmen, rather than give the location of two runaway slaves. This is not the action of a servile lackey. Perhaps we should start referring to the reverend Sharpton and his ilk as Samboes and Quimbys, after Simon Legree’s enforcers.

If we can’t get rid of Barney Frank or San Fran Nan...this would still be highly rewarding.

Is the Black Caucus even reachable with the numbers?

Yep this would be great. I would love to see more black and other minority Republicans. The Republican agenda is color blind, and appeals to anyone who favors limited government and lower taxes, among others.

The ONLY reason it matters is that they have lied incessantly about our being racists for decades, and I, for one, have had ENOUGH.

This is great news, and I intend to spread it around.

A few days ago, some guy on here was claiming black conservatives had to “prove” themselves to Republicans. What a load of bs. We have great black conservative candidates, at least three of whom will win this time. Many of our best political commentators are black, Williams, Sowell, Elder. After this election we will have two Indian-American governors, two Hispanic govenors, an Hispanic senator, numerous black, Hispanic and Asian congressional representatives. I am pretty sure all of them will have been elected from majority white districts. How many minority Democratic officials get elected from majority white districts? Now, tell me, please, who are the racists?
