If you say the name Oscar Grant to most people, they probably won’t know who you are talking about. Some might even think you are talking about the famous eyewear designer, Foster Grant. However, if you say the name Oscar Grant to many African Americans under the age of thirty (or any San Franciscans), you’ll have a pretty good chance of learning more than you ever wanted to know about […]
Starting today, probably the biggest baseball story of the last century is being re-told in your local movie theater… via a little baseball film simply called 42. What does a baseball movie have to do with Politisite, you might say? A lot actually. Jackie Robinson, the amazing wall-breaker of Major League Baseball is a man who many don’t know much about except for what he did at the ripe age […]

Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.) is once again drawing attention for making controversial comments to the media, after the told the Arab television network Alhurra that the GOP won in November because many Americans don’t want a black president. In the interview, which has been flagged by the Weekly Standard and The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin, Moran said that Democratic losses in the 2010 elections … … happened because […]
I know the basics of his bio — accomplished CEO, talk-radio host, cancer survivor — but not much more beyond that. Even so, it got my attention a few days ago when he won Red State’s 2012 “tournament,” topping Mike Pence in the semifinal and Palin in the final. Is that because Cain’s a Red State favorite or is the grassroots support for him out there broader than anyone realizes […]
In an earlier story we had mentioned that there were 32 African-Americans running under the Republican Banner during the 2010 Primary.
Although Most of the News has been about Florida’s Allen West and South Carolina’s Tim Scott, there are 12 other black GOP candidates looking to make history in this year’s midterms:
Nearly thirty-two African-Americans are running this election season as Republicans. If you only watched the mainstream media, you would think there were only three: South Carolinas’ Tim Scott, Allen West of Florida, and Republican strategist Angela McGlowan of Mississippi. But there are 28 others who are running under the banner of Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the most since reconstruction. Many are running in the deep south and maybe I shouldn’t use this word, but the south appears to be more “progressive” than its northern neighbors.
Many of the candidates have been endorsed by their local teaparties and the always controversial former Vice-Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin. Maybe that is the reason the media isn’t reporting on these candidates, their endorsements from the tea party movement doesn’t jive with their premise that the movement is racist because of their disagreement with President Obama’s policies. Maybe the real truth is the tea parties descent is about ideology and not the color of Obama’s skin.
The New York Times took a look at the many candidates of African descent who are running under the Republican banner. We have added the names of the candidates and a link to each so one can learn more about each of the candidate running this election season.
The times they are a changin! It is refreshing for this writer to see an Indian-American and a Black conservative be elected overwhelmingly in South Carolina’s Runoff election tonight. What makes it all the better is both won in a landslide. Nikki Haley beat a sitting congressman and Tim Scott beat one of the best known Senators name, Thurmond. The can be no doubt that two things are true. The […]
South Carolina GOP governor’s nominee Nikki Haley. South Carolina state Rep. Nikki Haley cruised to the Republican nomination for governor tonight, a victory that makes her not just the frontrunner for the office this fall but a likely national GOP star. Haley crushed Rep. Gresham Barrett in the runoff race, an expected result given that she took 49 percent of the June 8 primary vote — narrowly missing the chance […]
www.votetimscott.com and follow him on Facebook and Twitter I’m very proud to add my support to Tim Scott’s campaign to represent South Carolina’s 1st congressional district. Tim has a remarkable success story. He grew up in poverty and was raised by a single-mom who struggled to provide. With help from a mentor and his brave mom, Tim learned to appreciate the value of hard work and American opportunity. He went […]
