DNC Chairman Howard Dean has made some comments lately, that have been considered controversial. He’s called the Republican Party “The White Christian Party”, and has angered party leaders such as Senators Joe Biden (DE) and Barack Obama (IL).
I Stand with Howard Dean.
As far as I am concerned, Howard Dean was right. As William Rivers Pitt says in a Truthout editorial:
“Of 3,643 Republicans serving in state legislatures across the country, only 44 of them are minorities, amounting to 1.2%. Texas, with a minority population of 47%, has 106 Republicans in the state legislature. There are exactly zero African Americans and exactly zero Hispanics serving in that body as Republicans. In Washington, 274 of the 535 elected Senators and Representatives are Republican. Exactly five are minorities.”
