    It's why I took pains to say "vocal". It was an attempt to highlight the "professional" black Republicans. Like Larry Elder and Star Parker. I recognize there are some decent "public" ones, including Lenny McAllister. And that there are many more who practice conservatism in their lives. But most that you see on TV are pandering trash. Allen West's wife is a Republican, embraced by Republicans. She put up a Facebook post last month flat out admitting to committing housing discrimination in NYC for her clients that didn't want blacks or Jews or Puerto Ricans or whatever. She explicitly states that she did it for the "six figure income". She is not ashamed of that fact. She is a Republican. She's where GOP thought naturally leads. And she is no way AT ALL Harriet Tubman or Sojourner Truth.
