"The African American Republican Leadership Council does not appear to feature African Americans." One priceless exchange:
I did, however, have one of the council's few African Americans on the line. So, Kevin: Where are the black people? "I'd like there to be more, but let's be honest, right now the Republican Party and African Americans have a large rift." But how can you work toward getting more black leaders if the public face of your group seems to consist largely of white people? Is this any way to get black Republicans in Congress? "What do we need black Republicans in Congress for?" I did not expect that answer.
Sadly, the Republican party's problems with African Americans reminds me a lot of the Democratic party's problems with pretty much everyone else.
