Are Black Republicans Selfish?Written by Angela Winters
I recently read an article at Black America Web, one of my favorite news sources, and was taken back by opinion of one of writers. In a nutshell, she said that Black Republicans are just selfish.
We don't have exact numbers from 2004 election yet, but a lot of buzz has been going around past few weeks about Bush's black numbers. The Joint Center for Political & Economic Studies conducted a research survey suggesting that Bush will probably double his black vote in 2004 from paltry 9% in 2000.
In her commentary, writer sees selfishness and lack of racial identity as reason blacks would increase their support of a man who has been nothing less than 'negligent and hostile' to them.
Why is it so hard to understand that we are all not defined by our skin color? We are human beings, and just as white/Asian/Hispanic or any other kind of Americans tend to lean right when they get some cheese, so do black folks. So yes, there might be a part of that, but I wouldn't call it selfish. Fiscal conservativism is not exclusive to any race.
