Texas Teabag person - ‘The Republican Party Doesn’t Want Black People to Vote,’
No, seriously, tell us what you really think. A Texas Tea Party leader admitted recently what most of us already knew, the Republican party doesn’t want African-Americans to vote.

As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections, quite candidly, goes up as the voting populace goes down.
