quote:Needless to say, he hasn't become big, yet. But the reason may be because despite Shannon's fervent belief in integrating the GOP and plowing ahead despite opposition (racism), he ran into some opposition (called the TRUTH about what the GOP really thinks of you) that ended his meteoric rise.
I had to go back to the blog to realize that this insult, or what should have been an insult, happened almost three years ago. But Reeves is still associated with Republicanism, even though the likes of Ridgel loom heavy in the California GOP leadership. http://www.ss.ca.gov/elections/elector_list_2004.pdf
Here's more about this tolerant and welcoming representative of the republican party:
quote:For many years Randy has been at the top of the local GOP apparatus, and shortly after 9-11 publicly stated his belief that anyone suspected of being Arab or Arab-like in appearance should be demoted to a status beneath that enjoyed by the rest of us civil rights-wise, an unsurprising position to take given his upbringing in Jim Crow's Louisiana.
So ... would that place them ahead of or just behind Reeves in the "deserving america" pecking order?
quote:The sad part with Ridgel is that he isn't like the people who really run the GOP, the rich. Randy is just like tens of millions of other fellow middleclass Republican dupes who are told the GOP is saving them from the democrats
The sad thing is just as Black republicans seek to connect with a political body that clearly holds them in destine; so too do these poor-a$$ed [or would be poor-a$$ed if it weren't for the public trough that they criticize so much] white republicans.
