    an excerpt:

    ‘But they have delivered those speeches to a convention hall filled overwhelmingly with white faces, an awkward contrast that has been made more uncomfortable this week by a series of racial headaches that have intruded on the party’s efforts to project a new level of inclusiveness.

    The tensions come amid a debate within the GOP on how best to lure new voters. The nation’s shifting demographics have caused some Republican leaders to worry not only about the party’s future but about winning in November, particularly in key swing states such as Virginia and Nevada.


    “The demographics race we’re losing badly,” said Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.). “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”

      party is a dying animal. They cannot hope to reach majorities of younger Americans with their blatant racism because too many young Americans don't see the world that way. I live in a far suburb of Philadelphia. When my sons had friends over it looked like the United Nations -- kids who are white, black, latino, asian and combinations of all. They won't put up with the crudely drawn stereotypes and they hear the dog whistles for what they are.
