But there is no media bias …
It is the story that you will never see, hear or read about in the MSM; however, Real Clear Politics has the story … The Rise of the Black Republicans. One would think that with the election of Barack Obama as the first black President in the United States, our apologies to Bill Clinton, that the media would begin to cover stories of the advent of black candidates running for office. But how could the MSM cover such stories and continue to carry the water of the Democrat party and promote the GOP as racist?
I bet you haven’t heard of Tim Scott, Allen West or Ryan Frazier. If they were Democrats, I might lose that bet.
But they’re not. Mr. Scott, Mr. West and Mr. Frazier are three of the 14 black candidates running for Congress as Republicans this November. Thirty-two black Republicans ran in the primaries.
Most of the 14 are running all-but-hopeless races against black Democratic incumbents in black majority districts. But Mr. Scott, running in South Carolina, is a virtual cinch to win. Mr. West (Florida) and Mr. Frazier (Colorado) are in races that are judged tossups.
If all three win, that would be a post-Reconstruction record. The largest number of black Republicans to serve together in the House in the last century is two, J.C. Watts (Oklahoma) and Gary Franks (Connecticut) between 1995 and 1997. There haven’t been any since Mr. Watts retired in 2003.
The main stream media has also failed to mention that the republicans have several Hispanic candidates running in 2010 as well. How can that be America, we have been told by the Democrat state run media that Republicans are anti-immigrant and especially anti-Hispanic. Oh, that is right, a majority of Americans are anti-illegal immigration. Didn’t Democrat US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid say he didn’t know how any Hispanic would be a Republicans? Of course that would mean Harry Reid is confused by Republican US Senate candidate Marco Rubio in Florida and Brian Sandoval in Nevada who is of all things ahead of Reid’s son Rory for the Governor of Nevada.
Many liberals also say Republicans are anti-immigrant, even though Hispanic Republicans are poised to win a Senate seat in Florida (Marco Rubio) and gubernatorial races in New Mexico (Susana Martinez) and Nevada (Brian Sandoval).
Nine Hispanic Republicans are seeking election to the House. Four — Bill Flores and Quico Canseco in Texas, Jaime Herrera in Washington state and David Rivera in Florida — are even-money or better to win.
Once again, how could such stories be reported by the MSM when they directly go against their media bias against Republicans? Racists, indeed.
Of the 39 black Democrats in the House, all but two represent districts where blacks are a majority or plurality. One other black Democratic contender is running in a white majority district. So in this election, Republicans are running more blacks in white majority districts than the Democrats are. Shouldn’t that be taken into consideration when accusations of racism are being hurled about?
Accusations of racism against Republicans are a staple of Democratic politics because Democrats need to keep blacks on the plantation to remain viable nationally. “Young people and minorities are all the president has left,” the National Journal headlined its story on a poll released Wednesday.
