What You Won’t See in Black Politics

You know what you won’t see? A black Republican become a Democrat. But little by little black Democrats see the light, and they convert.

As Star Parker noted recently:

At a conference held in Baton Rouge at the end of May, called @Large and aimed to attract black conservatives, a black Democratic member of the Louisiana Legislature, Elbert Guillary, announced that he was switching parties and becoming a Republican.

Less than two weeks later, just up the road in Central City, La., black Democrat city Councilman Ralph Washington, who attended this same @Large conference, made the same announcement – he’s becoming a Republican.

Trending: Is this Christine Blasey DRUNK at a Party?

There have been many others, such as Louisiana State Senator, Elbert Guillory.

Do you think the Republicans have capitalized on this? Have they analyzed why this occurs uni-directionally, and created a message to get others to do the same?

Black Democrats WANT to switch parties, but the Republicans give them NO reason to do so...
