Giuliani and His (White) Race for the Presidency

with one comment

A DiversityInc report is wondering if Republican Rudy Giuliani is diverse enough to become our next president.  In the June issue DiversityInc found that of all presidential candidates, Giuliani’s campaign was being run entirely by whites and now one of them has their background in question.

 Arthur Ravenel Jr, former US congressman, is being accused by the Democratic National Party (DNC) of being racially divisive.  According to the DNC, Ravenel has referred to the NAACP as the National Association of Retarded People and “proudly addressed” the white nationalist organization the Council of Conservative Citizens”.  The DNC would like for Giuliani to condemn his racist co-chair.

While all eyes are now on Obama and H. Clinton (the first viable minorities to run for office) the focus is off the Republican Party at the moment, except for the financial troubles of McCain and the Hollywood glam of Fred Thompson.  So far Giuliani is looking like the frontrunner for the Republicans, but he doesn’t seem to promise the racial diversity that Bush’s administration has brought to the White House.  As we head into the second decade of the 21st millennium and the country becomes browner, you have to wonder why a nominee wouldn’t want advisors that can help reach out to different groups.

  1. Diversity is a crock. George W. Bush appointed black Americans to the most prominent positions ever, and he was still raked over the coals because blacks that become conservatives are not “authentically” black.

    Liberals simply want liberals in power, and short of a conservative renouncing everything they believe and becoming liberal, nothing will be good enough. The solution is ideological diversity, aka intellectual diversity, aka diversity of thought. Intelligence comes in all colors, but I will not lose sleep if my government avoids tokenism and simply picks the best people.

    90% of blacks vote democrat, and then black leaders wonder why there is little diversity in republican administrations. Attacking an employer is not the way to gain a job. It is not because they are black. It is because they are liberal.

    Anyway,I am contacting political bloggers around the country since I am one as well. I hope this email is not an intrusion. If I already asked you, my bad in advance.

    I would like it very much if you would go to http://www.bloggerschoiceawards.com/blogs/show/21020
    and vote for me for best political blog and best overall blog as well, IF AND ONLY IF you feel my blog is of a high quality. I really think I have a legitimate shot at winning. If you are open to spreading the word, that would be cool as well.

    Thank you.
