RNC Chair Michael Steele: Blacks “Don’t Have A Reason” To Vote Republican

Posted by | April 21, 2010 19:08 | Filed under: Top Stories

If Michael Steele was unpopular with some members of his party before, it was likely nothing compared to how some will regard his most recent comments.  Speaking to 200 DePaul University students, Steele said African-Americans aren’t motivated to vote Republican.

Why should an African-American vote Republican?

“You really don’t have a reason to, to be honest — we haven’t done a very good job of really giving you one. True? True.”

“For the last 40-plus years we had a ‘Southern Strategy’ that alienated many minority voters by focusing on the white male vote in the South. Well, guess what happened in 1992, folks, ‘Bubba’ went back home to the Democratic Party and voted for Bill Clinton.”

Now, hold your head and wait for the fallout.
