THE GROFF/ELLISON POLITICAL REPORT

Could the Black Right Help Obama

Posted in Uncategorized by groffellison on June 14, 2008

A well known black republican in Colorado recently said in a barabershop conversation about the presidential race that he was voting for Sen. Barack Obama and added loudly “then push the button for every other Republican on the ballot.”  When asked why amidst the laughter he said “‘I’m black first’ and I would love to see something I’d never thought I’d see ‘a black president.'”

The neatly coiffured Republican appeartly is not alone, many  black Republicans appeared to be torn.  A recent Newsweek article details the apparent confusion many black GOPpers will face in November.
