The Problem with Black Republicans
An oldie but goodie by Darryl Cox. Short form: Black Republicans want to have some company in the party? Then do the hard work of some on the ground organizing in the Black community. Show you're part of the neighborhood. Demonstrate you care about the same issues that your peers do. Get into the trenches. A few scattered op-ed columns decrying Black "servitude" to the Democratic Party is not substitute for actual engagement.
