Tavis Smiley had an interesting article on NPR yesterday on the GOP’s efforts to get black voters to cross party lines. Black folk vote overwhelmingly democratic. That being the case, Bush and the Republican Party have apparently made a concerted effort to engage the Black community. In his campaigning, Bush has been trying to offer African Americans an “alternative.” Of course, I don’t buy any of that crap, but it does bring up an interesting question. Why does any Black person in America vote republican? Are there any Black republicans in this forum? If so, let’s here from you.
