Black votes matter: Will GOP ever figure that out?

By Robert George

voteBoisterous ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith provided a valuable service last week when he challenged fellow blacks to think about voting Republican once in a while.

But it would sure help if Republicans themselves made a better effort to understand core African-American values — particularly when it comes to the Voting Rights and the Civil Rights acts.

Speaking before a Vanderbilt University audience, Smith declared provocatively, “What I dream is that for one election, just one, every black person in America [would] vote Republican.”

He continued, “Black folks in America are telling one party, ‘We don’t give a damn about you.’ They’re telling the other party, ‘You’ve got our vote.’ Therefore, you have labeled yourself disenfranchised because one party knows they’ve got you under their thumb, the other party knows they’ll never get you and nobody comes to address your interest[s].”
