Could 2010 be the year of the black Republican?

It is a truism that the relationship between African-Americans and the modern-day Republican Party has been marked by hostility and contentiousness. This reality is often difficult to reconcile with the GOP's historical opposition to slavery and the Democrats' often whitewashed track record on race relations. Despite an impressive roster of prominent African-American Republicans, blacks and Republicans sometimes seem as compatible as oil and water.

But nearly two years removed from the election of President Barack Obama, a subtle but remarkable political revolution has been set in motion. A cadre of black political candidates is angling to assume its place in Washington - as registered Republicans. With some convincing, they may yet help re-orient the historically troubled dynamic between black voters and the Republican Party.

Let's hope so.

If you don't mind me asking, what is your political leaning, MsInterpret?

I lean both to the left and the right LOL...

I was raised in a Black republican household...My mother has VERY strong republican views. So I lean more to the right, thanks to my mom's forceful Right-winged republican views.

When I was reading "I was raised in a Black republican household," 'black republican' jumped out at me like it was an oxymoron. lol

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
