ten million dollars that they have saved up in their kitty, or actually go into the hood (gasp) and talk to real minorities to do it.
Here it is: Whenever anyone associated with your party (even a local dog catcher) does or says something publicly that you think minorities might find offensive, immediately come out and make a statement that the views of that individual does not represent your party. This is also true of republican media personalities such as Rush and Ann Coulter. (BTW Ann,wishing death on "The Maverick's" daughter crossed the line.)
You can put my advice into practice starting now. Sadly, the governor of Georgia has given you a reason to.
"Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) has refused through a spokesperson to endorse one town’s first-ever integrated high school prom, saying that he would rather not take sides on the issue. According to Atlanta’s WMAZ Channel 13, politicians from both parties have stated their support for black and white students from Wilcox, Georgia, but Deal declined to join them.
Raw Story spoke to activist Bryan Long of the progressive group Better Georgia, whose group has asked Georgia elected officials “to publicly support the students of Wilcox County who are fighting to end a ‘separate-but-equal’ high school prom.”
“We thought it would be nice if our elected officials would support these students,” said Long. “They’re taking a great stand in their community. We thought that officials all across the state should send a message to the nation that we’ve moved beyond the racial divisions of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s.”
He added, “We were surprised to read that the governor’s spokesperson said that he wouldn’t be ‘taking sides’ on this issue. I didn’t know that there were sides to take.” [Source]
I know I know, it seems like you are "herding cats" at times, but you have to start somewhere.
