'We'll have to see what the Howard students thought,' Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul shouted from an elevator Wednesday afternoon, answering MailOnline's question about whether his foray into winning the hearts and minds of black youths was successful.
Paul, a Republican darling who is already laying the groundwork for a 2016 presidential run with a coming appearance in New Hampshire, had just wrapped up a two-hour appearance at the Howard University School of Business.

"Rand Paul's tells majority black Howard University that it was the Democrats, not the Republicans behind "racism and Jim Crow'"
Please see the full title in the first posting. Thank-you.
and im so sick of that meme floating around how somehow the democrats and repubs ‘switched’ their treatment of minorities, so that is why dhimmis keep getting the black vote...cause they ‘really’ care..
It’s worth a try, and Rand Paul is not a bad spokesman for this sort of outreach. I’m not thrilled with him in all areas, but he is immeasurably better than Christie, McCain, Romney, or another Bush. If a heavy hitter like Sarah Palin does not jump in early, I may work for this guy’s campaign full time.
Republicans have said very little over the years about Jim Crow laws and which party fought against ending slavery.
Rand’s end run around the Leftist Media. Love it.
I think he should schedule these teaching moments regularly in towns across America. Build up a following. Keep repeating the message until it is heard and understood. Truth is a wonderful thing. REPEAT REPEAT REPEAT!
If blacks need to be old that their vote is not worth the effort
That would be a ticket for the GOP!!
I note we had to go to the UK to find out about this.
And they didn’t know what he was talking about.
Sen. Rand Paul needs to point out - that with the exception of Maddox - the racists in the Democrat Party STAYED democrats.
And the democrat leadership covered for the old racists... Maxine Waters was ‘surprised’ after knowing Robert (KKK) Byrd for years that he had been a Kluxer... The ‘press’ - the boys who know secrets can’t be kept - were easily hoodwinked too.
Bull Conner stayed a Dem.
The following is from an earlier FreeRepublic Thread:
There’s another Democrat senator out there with a similarly embarassing past, but also one who has recieved much less attention, even among conservatives: Sen. Ernest Hollings (D-SC). Like Byrd, Hollings has a recent history of racial slurs. Less known is his history as governor of South Carolina in the early 1960’s, when he was a leading segregationist. To fill this gap here’s a glimpse of Senator Hollings’ segregationist past and history of racial slurs:
SEGREGATIONIST GOVERNOR: As Governor of South Carolina, Ernest F. Hollings personally led the fight against lunch counter integration in his state. The New York Times reported that Hollings “warned today that South Carolina would not permit ‘explosive’ manifestations in connection with Negro demands for lunch-counter services.” The Times reported that Hollings called a news conference on the subject where he “challenged President Eisenhower’s contention that minorities had the right to engage in certain types of demonstrations” against segregation. Hollings told reporters at the press conference that Eisenhower was “confused” and had done “great damage to peace and good order” by supporting the rights of minorities to protest segregation at the lunch counters. (SOURCE: “Warning by Hollings.” New York Times, March 17, 1960.)
ANTI-INTIGRATION ORGANIZER: Governor Ernest F. Hollings of South Carolina is listed as a leading participant at a July 23, 1961 conference of “leading segregationists” in Atlanta to organize a “segregationist bloc” voting lobby to resist pressures for integration. Hollings was one of four governors who attended, with seven more having been invited. The others were Orval Faubus of Arkansas, Ross Barnett of Mississippi, and John Patterson of Alabama. The strategies discussed at the meeting heavily involved using the White Citizens Council, a segregationist organization. (SOURCE: Sitton, Claude. “Segregation Bloc Seeks Vote Lobby.” New York Times, Jul 24, 1961.)
RACIAL SLURS: Senator Ernest Hollings has a long history of using racial slurs. Following a poor showing in the 1983 Iowa Straw Poll, Hollings remarked “You had wetbacks from California that came in here for Cranston,” a reference to Alan Cranston who finished second. Hollings also made derogatory references to an African delegation at a 1993 international conference, suggesting they were cannibals. He stated “Everybody likes to go to Geneva. I used to do it for the Law of the Sea conferences and you’d find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they’d just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva.” He once referred to Sen. Howard Metzenbaum of Ohio, who was Jewish, as “the senator from B’nai B’rith.” The South Carolina Democrat also allegedly referred to blacks with the slur “darkies” in a 1986 interview and once called the Rainbow PUSH coalition the “blackbo coalition.”

The Republican Party was formed to fight the twin vestiges of barbarism, slavery and polygamy. Or was CNN and MSNBC?
You can read the Washington post, but it’s a hatchet job meant to remove Rand Paul’s head.
Yet once these young folks graduate and join “the real world” they will begin to reality just like it is.
In other words, when they wake up and smell the coffee, they will see the liberals for who they really are: LOSERS.
The GOP should run with this. Make attack ads and scream it from the rooftops. There are a couple of excellent youtube videos on this very subject. And how the Dem’s NEVER changed. The GOP has “let” the Dems get away with this narrative for far, far, far too long. They are always too busy playing “nice” and nice doesn’t work with these people on the left. I wish the GOP would learn that lesson and learn it well once and for all.
Yep, for some reason they just ceded the territory to the Dems. The media helped, though.
