While media reports focus on the presence of high profile African American leaders such as Rev. Al Sharpton and NAACP President Benjamin Jealous at this weekend’s Reclaim the Dream rally on the National Mall, a contingent of Black Republicans and conservatives plan to participate in the controversial Restoring Honor event hosted by talk show host Glen Beck.
These days, White conservatives are finding an unusual degree of comfort in talking – rather explicitly – about race. While they might argue it’s simply an attempt to insert alternative perspective on America’s controversial past time, Republicans privately whisper reverse racism is the move for 2010. Paint the perception that “Blacks” - with their Black President, Black Attorney General and pro-Muslim Black NASA head (following the “activist” philosophies of their late great Black Supreme Court justice) - have “taken over” and that scared Republican base voters and equally nervous White Independents should vote GOP as a collective defense mechanism.
