BET CEO Debra Lee accused the Republican Party of pandering to blacks and women. You think with the Black Leadership Council thingy they puked up with Rep. Allen West? Debra Lee told Politico, “They’re pandering. That’s the word that comes to mind.”
“I thought some of what went on at the RNC was very disingenuous,” she added. “Ann Romney has to [give a] shout-out to women? We’re over 50 percent of the population. We need a shout-out? It was the craziest-looking thing.”
Lee said it was “nice” that Rice sat next to Mitt Romney at the GOP convention, “but does the RNC really embrace African-Americans, really embrace women?” Source
Damn, Debra Lee just told Ann Romney where to go, didn’t she? The reality is that the Republican Party isn’t doing anything to attract black voters other than the usual race-baiting from some so-called party leaders.
