Are black Republicans the biggest bigots?
"The rhetoric is far from new or unexpected, but what is notable about these hateful outbursts is that they come from two black members of the Republican party. While their white counterparts have somewhat tamed their messages and toned down the obvious bigotry (not always, but they seem to make an effort), these two prominent black Republicans have spoken with reckless abandon.
This could be the result of a few different things. First, and perhaps most ironically, this is their attempt to prove to the Republican base and their Tea Party supporters that they are indeed true conservatives. President Obama has had to jump through hoops no other president has ever gone through to prove his "American-ness" and it mostly boils down to a racial identity issue. "
