Quoted from the article, these are things that Republicans are suing Democrats for: It's pretty pathetic that this is the best that black conservatives can do. The fact is that above and beyond any party affiliations, it is conservative ideology that was behind everything listed above. What does that say about conservatives that they are attacking Democrats because of their previous conservative positions?

nikcara, You have more than one point in your post. I will try to address them, but I hope you can forgive me if I miss one or two. Do we have differing definitions of "Christian"? What is a Christian to you? Yes, Christians do differ on issues, but they differ usually because they've started from different points of view. They have different conclusions about the world to begin with, thus they have certain differences in their worldviews, which is part of the point that I made originally.

Re: Larry Elder: blacks and republicans

Elder is a disgrace. It's easy for him to excuse the past, since he was born and raised in South Central L.A. instead of the Deep South. He never faced hardcore racism in California, like many faced in Alabama and Mississippi. It's a shame a black man in his 50s can disregard Jim Crow, who was alive to see Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, can still act racially naive.

Toussaint. What you fail to consider is that everything is relative. Lets say that an area has a million residents and normative levels of population growth.

The net effect of that is that the economic health of the region is deteriorating, despite not losing any jobs, but because they are not gaining any jobs. This is why despite job growth under the Bush administration, his tenure is considered a poor performance...

African American-Americans, notably David Walker and Mariah Stewart n the 1830's, and Martin B. Delaney in the 1860s, and Thomas Morris Chester in the 1880s seemed to drive the move to separatism in the 19th century. I'm sure there were others. Immigrants, and descendants of immigrants, transient and otherwise, are the notable players in the movement in the 20th century, e.g. Marcus Garvey, Elijah Muhammed, Stokely Carmichael, Malcolm (X) Little, Louis Farahkan, and most vocal supporters.
