Thank you for your insightful comments. We desperately need more people like you, and guys like Tim Scott, RGIII, Loyd Marcus, etc.
I have long wondered where such men are and why they haven’t been more vocal. America needs you. The Black community desperately needs you.
Full disclosure: I am white, but I grew up side-by-side with a very successful black man who now owns his own company and has 3 very beautiful, very intelligent children. He and I butted heads a LOT growing up, esp. in college where we separated for the duration of the 4 years. At the end of it all, he came over the Conservative side and wore his vote for Romney last month as a badge of honor.
I had dinner with him and his wife last year and actually saw what racism looked like when a group of black youths came to the Winghouse we were patronizing, sat at a nearby table and proceeded to call him an uncle Tom and a plantation nigger for marrying a white woman and sitting with his white friend. It was disturbing and sad to see that racism is still alive and well in this nation.
