Republicans: An old, white, dying breed of voter?



I hear all of the time from liberals that “the Republicans are old white men, red necks and racists. They’re in thrall to tea-baggers, who do not understand or give a darn about minorities.”

If only other Republicans knew how often I had this hateful brew (hatred of white male conservatives is still socially acceptable on the left) shoved down my throat. But what’s been directed at me personally is worse: I have been called a sell-out, hater of a brother (meaning Obama), and numerous choice words I can’t share here (hatred of conservative black women from the left is trickier, but even more heart-felt).

Urban Republicans fight for justice, truth and the American way, we do it in the face of visceral hate, and we do it without much support from the rest of the GOP. Why do white Republicans not get it? Why do they not listen to the Black Republicans who are writing, blogging, tweeting and calling them out? We’re here! Why don’t you hear us?
