The National Republican African American Caucus Has It's
Say!: An 18 Day Political Revival

Day 11: How most of the mean spirited rhetoric of the Republican Party is directly related to racism, ignorance and arrogance.

In order to make sense of this, one has to understand the detrimental effects of the connection of four deviant components:

Racism is an arrogance that suggests that the color of one's skin makes an individual superior or inferior.

Arrogance is a self-imposed ignorance of one's self that causes an individual to think they are superior to others and sometimes even superior to the God who created them.

Ignorance is the lack of knowledge and understanding that neither racism, nor arrogance makes sense or is a justifiable reason to feel superior or inferior.

Mean spirited rhetoric? Well, is what spews out of the mouths of those who possess all three.

What more needs to be said?

It makes you feel really sad for those who take great pleasure in indulging in any of the four.

So, instead of hating those who do so, let's just keep them lifted up in prayer, love them in spite of, hoping one day that they can move away from all of the above.

The National Republican African-American Caucus is an organization that is comprised of Spirit filled people of faith within the African American community, that works in conjunction with local, state and national party efforts to embrace, and offer African-American Republicans opportunities for inclusion and involvement in the Republican Party, and builds bridges between the African-American community and the Republican Party. In doing so, it seeks to carry out the philosophy and mission set before President Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas to build a stronger and more inclusive Republican Party, where those guiding principles are more important than politics.
