Star Parker's Story - YouTube
Did a little research on this interesting Woman and found that she's very active on the Political scene as well:
Star Parker, is an Americansyndicated columnist, Republicanpolitician, social critic, author, andconservative political activist. In 1995, she founded the Coalition on Urban Renewal and Education. In 2010, she was the unsuccessful Republican nominee for the United States House of Representatives inCalifornia's 37th District, which encompasses much of Los Angeles County.
Parker is a syndicated columnist with the Scripps Howard News Service. Her column is carried weekly by newspapers across the country and opinion sites such as Townhall.
She is pretty, really beautiful person, and I lover her story.
Wow! I wonder why she chose to use a Republican format? Well, at any rate, she seems kind of young. She's searching, and I hope that her youth won't cause predators to prey upon her and the the Christians around her will be a constant source of counsel for her in her search. Thank for the added information!
Maybe the OP will return and have conversation on that point, I dunno...
Star Parker: Closet racism in Virginia GOP opposes E.W. Jackson
May 25, 2013 |
Some 25 years ago, I changed my life. A visit inside a church opened my eyes to the destructive life I was living, financed by welfare checks generously provided by American taxpayers.
I got off welfare, went to work, got politically active and became a Republican. I didn't become a Republican because of what the party looked like. I became a Republican because of what the party stood for.
Individual freedom, traditional values, with a view that government's role is to protect our freedom at home and abroad.
For the next 25 years, I had to suffer indignities from liberals who could not fathom that a black woman could be a Republican because she actually embraced these values.
But now we have a strange turn of events. Liberals no longer feel on the run like they did in the 1980s and 1990s. They are running the show, and they know it. So I hear less from them.

Now the indignities come from inside the party that I embraced 25 years ago. It was always the Democrats that were about interest group politics.
Now Republicans have somehow concluded that their party's woes are because it once stood for something. So the game plan is to morph into the Democrats' stepsister.
Whereas once Republican buzzwords were family and freedom, now it is inclusion. The marching orders, according to the postelection RNC "autopsy" report, are outreach to blacks, Hispanics, gays, women and Asians. It's now about what the party looks like, not what it stands for.
Christian conservatives, once the answer, are now the problem. Which gets to Bishop E.W. Jackson, an outspoken black Christian conservative with a law degree from Harvard. He also was just selected as the nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia.
Although Republicans are talking about black outreach, it is not, unfortunately, blacks like Jackson that they have in mind.
He is outspoken about limited government and personal freedom, about the importance of family and traditional marriage and about doing something about the scourge of abortion.
In other words, E.W. Jackson stands for everything that the Republican Party once stood for. He's making the Republicans of inclusion squirm.....
