32 conservative African-Americans running for congress- Election 2010 Politisite

July 8, 2010 Albert N. Milliron 6

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.
