When are We Going to Understand That?

There are plenty of blunt comments about race on the various Internet venues. I see from some of the comments that come my way, that there are people from white to black who still think that their entire human makeup shares nothing with people of other races. Can you believe there are people who still think that way about race today? I like what Dr. Ben Carson says when asked why he does not talk much about race.

Encouraged by CPAC 2013


When I started this blog post, I could look across to the left  inside to my bedroom and see the TV. I had Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on C-SPAN. It has been my desire to attend this conference since I went conservative. I guess one of these years I will make it. I know CPAC is mostly attended by mostly white college students and 20 something folks. I hope that I, a 60+ something black female will not be that much of an anomaly when I finally do get to go to CPAC.

Because of all the reported turmoil within the Republican Party, I must admit I was not as disappointed about not being able to attend this year as in the past, but there is still that inner voice saying to me that I should attend a CPAC. This year I was not able to view many of Thursday and Friday speeches. I did hear radio talker Steve Deace’s interviews with Phyllis Schlafly and Gov. Bobby Jindal.  I watched  as much of the final day of CPAC as I could. I enjoyed Dr. Ben Carson and the speaker that introduced him who talked about the Christian influence being the primary catalyst behind the civil rights movement. I was also glad to hear CPAC speakers speaking against the Republican party becoming Democratic light.

I stopped whatever I was doing in the kitchen during the late afternoon to hear the hilariously truthful Ann Coulter and remained in front of the living room TV to hear a great conservative, Sen. Ted Cruz. Ah, Ted Cruz! I am already to support him in a presidential run. The GOP needs to put down all the infighting and focus on sustaining and increasing the Republican majority in the House, win a Republican majority in the Senate and winning back the presidency. I know it still does not look all that good for any of those victories, but after watching CPAC today, I realize all is not lost. We can have those GOP victories.
