The GOP is more diverse "by far," despite the mainstream media narrative that the Grand Old Party consists of old white men. The thing is, it should not matter, either way.
This, according to a far-right blog, CNN. Despite their finding, "minority outreach" should not be the goal of conservatives. Reaching out to all Americans, no matter the color of their skin, should be the goal. The only "minority outreach" that should happen is that conservatives need to better articulate their positions. Sadly, in many respects, the Republicans have allowed themselves to be put in a defensive position.
The message is here, and it applies to all Americans:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."
Pretty simple, huh? Today's Democratic party, the same party that boo'd God during the Democratic National Convention, the same party that vilifies black conservatives, the party that Malcolm X saw right through as he declared during a speech:
Anytime you throw your weight behind a political party that controls two-thirds of the government, and that Party can't keep the promise that it made to you during election time, and you're dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself with that Party, you're not only a chump, but you're a traitor to your race. - Malcolm X
Malcolm X was strong in his message, but what he says is true. "Minority outreach" has nothing to do with a party caring about you, it is only about getting your vote. This, the author submits, is exactly why black conservatives such as Tim Scott, Allen West and Mia Love are major targets. They are hated because they do not fit the fake narrative of the "Grand Old [White] Party." Not only does the Republican party better reflect the values of minorities, they always have, despite the lie about the parties switching.
John Avlon, who also writes for The Daily Beast and Newsweek, reports that "it might surprise you to hear that Republicans are by far the more diverse party when it comes to statewide elected officials such as senators and governors." He notes that in the case of diversity, Republicans leave "Democrats in the dust."
The conservative message is portrayed as "radical" by many on the left, and certainly by their puppets in the mainstream media. But have you ever noticed that specific "radical" policies are not articulated? The conservative message is much more in alignment with all Americans, including minority groups, then the message of today's democrats.
As Avlon says, "Numbers don't lie."
Hopefully, those who paint conservatives, particularly the Tea Party, as "racist," will do some self-reflecting. The GOP should not promise anything to groups based on the color of their skin. Isn't that racist?
