Readers comment on article regarding Reginald Bohannon book “Coming Out of the Republican Closet”

  1. Robin Says:

    Mr Bohannon,

    It is a real shame to hear a Black man speak about the republican party as “our home”. We should feel at “home” when republicans like Bill Bennett makes statements that crime would be reduced if every Black baby were aborted. The party of Strom Thurmond who said “I wanna tell you, ladies and gentlemen, that there’s not enough troops in the army to force the Southern people to break down segregation and admit the nigra race into our theaters, into our swimming pools, into our homes, and into our churches.” . The party that disenfranchised Blacks and other minorities int he 2000 and 2004 elections is “home”? The very party that redistricted Texas to water down the minority vote in heavily populated Black and Mexican districts?

    I had thought we has stopped carrying water for massa. Well, you go ahead and do as you please. That is the Democratic way. But to suggest that because Blacks are conservative on issues of abortion and gay marriage and therefore should consider the republican party as a result while voting against their own best interest on iseeue that affect them on a daily basis is repugnant. Some of these people have already been conned out of their vote on those issues without them being fulfilled…twice. These are Christians who believe in Jesus Christ. Remember Him? He is the one that gives us choice; it is called FREE WILL.

    I realize that you have heard this before and I am sure more articulately. You are entitled to your belief and vote but I am sure that in the dark, when you are alone, you must be ashamed of yourself.
