Is Michael Steele the new face of the RNC, and the progression of the Republican Party, mainly, put there to attract minorities to the party, or is he the stereo-typical token? Haven’t we seen characters such as this, through out history; same make up just a different name?
What happened to Alan Keyes, and J.C. Watts?
Bigger question is what will happen to Michael Steele after the “party” is over (his reign)?
Tell Michael Steele what you think about his efforts to attract more minorites, especially, since the base of his party is rallying to derail that effort. Let him know, if, his efforts are working and what he can do, email Michael Steele and please call, write or fax at 202.863.8500 or the Republican National Committee , 310 First Street, Washington, D.C. 20003, phone 202 863-8500 | fax 202 863-8820.
Particularly, ask him about possibly censoring Rush Limbaugh , Call Rush at 1-800-282-2882, write 1270 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10020 or email ElRushbo (ElRushbo@eibnet.com), to improve relations between the GOP and minorities. And don’t forget to ask, what the GOP’s plan for pathways for undocumented immigrants, to become part of America is?
Michael Steele in a nutshell:
You made the comment at the convention about the lack of diversity. And your response was candid, and not to your party’s liking…
” I looked at the people who gave me the flack and said, “What’s the problem? Am I wrong? Only, thirty-six black folks in the room? Out of 4,000 people?”
Why do you think the Republican Party lacks diversity right now?
“We have offered them nothing!” Impression we’ve created is that we don’t give a damn about them or we just outright don’t like them. That’s does not help a political party. I think the way we talk about immigration, the way we talked about some of the issues that are important to African-Americans, does not attract.
The reality of it is… electing Barack does not necessarily change the underlying concerns and issues related to race. On one level it does, but I’m still a black man; when I walk in a room (Is he talking about those within his own political party or Americans in general?), people have attitudes about black folks. I can’t change that. I have to deal with that reality regardless of RNC chairman title.
There are people in this country (Is he referring to Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Clyburn, Reid and Hoyer, or, Wilson, Bachmann, Boehner, Price, Gohmert?) right now who would look at Barack Obama and still refer to him as “boy.”
