Trey Coleman: Is It Possible for the Republican Party to Attract Black People? Maybe

It’s not far fetched to say that the Republican party is out of touch with the African-American voter.  The party has alienated the black vote so much that blacks vote democratic at a disproportionate number. The demographics in the US are changing and the Republican party can no longer depend on the white vote to win the presidency.  The party has to begin a courtship of the black vote. I believe that the core values of the Republican party appeals to blacks. Before I’m accused of being a traitor or Sambo, allow me to explain my position.
First, the Republican party must effectively communicate our core values which are God, family, a strong community, and education.  Secondly, tone down the rhetoric and adverse speech.  Third, the speeches have to be of inclusion of minorities rather than excluding.  It’s a fact that most blacks strongly believe that the Republican party is racist and listening to some of the rhetoric, I can understand the apprehension. At the same time, I’m open-minded enough to see past it.
