I suspect that a few minorities find that they can acquire power and wealth by being novelty acts - running as Republicans. They don’t really have any principles or stand for anything. But they have found that the Republicans are so desperate for a token minority that they can get themselves elected or appointed to high office fairly easily. Jindal. Colin Powell. Rubio. A few others come to mind. The mask comes off eventually and they show us they are more loyal to race than to conservative principles.
Republicans are nearly as eager to prove they are not racist by voting for a person of color as the Democrats are. And this is what we get.
It’s a shame Thomas Sowell never ran for office. I have no doubt of his conservative principles.
You are the kind of fellow who got Blanco elected governor of Louisiana. Then watched her stand there stunned, knowing not what to do when Katrina came roaring in.
