Black Hopefuls Pick This Year in G.O.P. Races


By JENNIFER STEINHAUER
Published: May 4, 2010







Among the many reverberations of President Obama’s election, here is one he probably never anticipated: at least 32 African-Americans are running for Congress this year as Republicans, the biggest surge since Reconstruction, according to party officials.

Allen West, running in Florida, says the notion of racism in the Tea Party movement has been made up by the news media.

ok i can't watch that video, the title "Sharpton guest insists Clarence Thomas isn’t really black [video"

says it all...the reason that we have racism so abundant is because of idiots like Sharpton. Maybe he needs to do a little research and find out that blacks have been voted into some sort of office well before he was even a twinkle in his dad's eyes. when ppl like him start spewing the hate, someone somewhere begins to believe it, and boom, we have all this hatred amongst us. just because he may have been denied a job

I agree and on Thomas, regardless of his race, he is a hard worker and very, very smart.

Can't wait to see the stats on the number of blacks who actually get ELECTED in November. Running is one thing, getting elected (esp. by GOOPers) is another.

that of course if a liberal racist statement, they are already up for election backed by GOP, perhaps you need to read more about racism and who holds whom back, Republicans won't vote a black person in are you kidding me or just recycling the old gop is racists, guess what it isn't working anymore
