So why can't Republican candidates attract minority voters? Raynard Jackson opines on Freedom's Journal Magazine:
...[Y]ou should know that I have helped to raise more than $300k for Romney’s campaign and since December, have helped raise more than $ 1million for Republican candidates this cycle. In other words, I have earned the right to criticize my party.
Post-election, the party leadership is talking without saying anything. Republicans are saying things like: “We need to do a better job communicating our conservative message to minorities.” What? Are you kidding me?
Why has the media never asked these Republicans to define what “conservatism” is? But, this highlights the Republican’s problem when it comes to diversity. They want to come into our community and tell us what we have to believe, as opposed to asking us what we believe and use that as the basis of building a mutually beneficial relationship.
Until the party actually starts hiring minorities on every level of the party, spending money traveling to meet with minorities, and tone down the incendiary language coming from our party, we will never make any advances with the minority community.
