FROM THE MOUTH OF A BLACK REPUBLICAN ACTIVIST
In his article, “My Republican Party has Abandoned Me,” Black Republican activist, Raynard Jackson, says the following:
“For many years, I have approached the party and its supporters about underwriting programs to bring together Blacks who are Republican or lean Republican so we can weave them into every facet of the party structure. The answer is always, No! But, twice this year some of these same people have approached me about funding for some election year tricks that they (White Republicans) have conjured up and simply need a Black face to execute the plan. On these two separate occasions, these funders were willing to spend upwards of $20 million to have me organize a national campaign to identify Blacks who would be critical of President Obama.”
Considering Tavis Smiley’s close association with Walmart, Exxon/Mobile, Wells Fargo, Nationwide Ins., and other ALEC-connected corporations, is he and Cornel West doing for free, what the Republican Party is willing to pay $20 million to have done? Hmmmmm . . . What do you think?
