I go to Republican convention; I go to Democrat [convention] and as a white guy one of the things I notice about the difference – one thing I notice about black people at different conventions [is] you go to the Democrat convention [and] black folk are hanging together, having a good time. They’re smiling and enjoying themselves. They feel very much at home. You go to Republican [convention] – you get the feeling you are all told individually ‘now don’t bunch up; don’t get together, don’t crowd or you’ll scare these people’. Is that true in the Republican Party? Is that still true in your party?What a jerk. While there is no way to deny that the black community tends to vote for the democrats, that doesn't mean that republicans are afraid of them.
Did you fear that if you got together with some other African Americans that white guys might get scared of you?
Why would Chris be offended by the fact that the people of color are just treated like anyone else at the republican conventions? Isn't that the message that Dr. King was trying to get across? I don't care what color someone is, I care what kind of person they are. Obviously you still need to learn that lesson Mr. Matthews. Tell me again why I am the racist when from your statement it is the dems that "bunch them" together? Can't they hang where they want to?
