INDEPENDENCE FOR BLACKS IS THE END OF BLUE:

"Republicans for Black Empowerment Announces it's Creation"

During this month of February, commemorating black history, thousands of political activists take great pleasure in celebrating the return of an increasing number of African-Americans to their political home, the Republican Party.

In the same spirit, Republicans for Black Empowerment, after several months of communicating and rapidly growing into a viable network recently became an official organization, creating its Executive Committee on January 17, 2006.

Before the 2004 presidential elections, through the wonders of the Internet, activists from across the country began sharing ideas on how to encourage blacks to join the GOP and relating their own experiences within the Republican Party.

Republicans for Black Empowerment will strive to offer an association for independent minds whose primary mission is to liberate African-Americans from an ideology that over four decades has restricted their economic and political progress.

Among the major goals of Republicans for Black Empowerment are to provide cohesion for conservative thinking people and educate the black community to the political virtues of free enterprise, limited government and personal responsibility.

Its expanding coalition of grassroots activists will advocate for federal policies to reduce black dependency on government and protect traditional family values. Republicans for Black Empowerment plans to seek and support the candidacy of individuals who adopt these ideals.

Since education will be paramount to achieving these goals, Republicans for Black Empowerment will periodically convene public forums across the country to inform the black community of proposed legislation affecting their lives. The organization will also aggressively mentor young people by starting College Republican chapters at Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

Surprising to see Colin Powell's picture at the bottom of the page. Anyway, I wish them all the luck in the world. An activist group like this could make a difference.

It's amazing how closely left rhetoric about black Republican candidates mirrors the arguments of Jim Crow. I swear, they sound just like some of my most bigoted relatives here in GA. Of course, those relatives are also Democrats.

"Of course, those relatives are also Democrats."

And this surprises you how?
