“The Republican Party brand sucks and so people don’t want to be a Republican and for 80 years, African-Americans have had nothing to do with Republicans.
Who the H-E-double hockey sticks is he and to whom is he talking to?
And why 80 years? 2014 – 80 = 1934; Would FDR, JFK, and LBJ have anything to do with those 80 years? (the years and the administration which brought us Social Security, CCC, Rural Electrification, Medicare, the SEC, FDIC, etc. or how about Civil Rights and Voting Rights)
He is the Junior Senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul who talks to the public as if it were completely ignorant of the Republican Party’s history of the last 40 plus years from Ronald Reagan’s big (black) buck story
to George H. W. Bush’s Willie Horton ads or Jessie Helms the black-man-is-taking-white-men’s-job ads. He would be laughed off the stage by the whites in his audience if they were intelligent enough to know that the Republican Party’s problem is not that blacks have the “perception” that “no one in the Republican Party cares.” The Republican Party’s perception problem among blacks is based on the Republican Party’s behavior and philosophy including its ability to get its rank-and-file members to routinely launch recreational attacks on government. The party morphed into the anti-Civil and Voting Rights party. Rand is right about the perception and was wise enough not to call it a misperception. The lack of Republican Party popularity in the black community is based on perception of Republican Party strategy.
