So let me get his right, Dean calls the GOP the, "...pretty much a white, Christian party" and Republicans are outraged? Are they not proud of what they are? Here are the statistics.
Thank you for speaking the REAL truth Gov. Chairman Dean! Here is a proud "white" "christian" Republican:
- 99 percent of all Republican legislators across the country and in Congress are white. Even when Republican states have significant minority populations, the elected Republican representatives rarely are drawn from those communities.
- Of 3,643 Republicans serving in the state legislatures, only 44 are minorities, or 1.2 percent. In the Congress, with 274 of the 535 elected senators and representatives Republican, only five are minorities - three Cuban Americans from Florida, a Mexican American from Texas and a Native American senator originally elected as a Democrat. [NOTE FROM JOHN: That means the GOP has elected ZERO blacks to Congress.]
- 'President Bush's home state leads the way. Texas, with a minority population of 47 percent, has 106 Republicans in the state legislature, but there are 0 blacks and 0 Hispanics among them,'
