GOP official: White conservatives would ‘crawl across broken glass’ to vote for a black Republican

by Valerie Richardson  |  published on July 3, 2016

Far from being racist, white Republicans would “crawl across a football field of broken glass” to vote for a black Republican, according to a leading black conservative.

Derrick Wilburn, vice chair of the Colorado Republican Party, told a packed workshop crowd at the Western Conservative Summit that the Republicans-are-racists narrative is “nothing but a lie.”

“The truth is every conservative I know, every Republican I know, everyone I know that falls under the tent that I live under would get on their hands and knees crawl across football field of broken glass and nails in order to cast a vote for Allen West, or Condoleezza Rice, or Ben Carson,” said Mr. Wilburn to enthusiastic applause.

“They’d do it in a heartbeat. Hey, the cuts will heal. We’ve got a country to save,” he said. “But they wouldn’t accept a chauffeured Rolls Royce champagne-and-caviar limousine ride across the street to vote for a white liberal.”

    I agree. I have no problem with the color of a person’s skin. I do have a problem with the content of a person’s character and their worldview. A flawed worldview or flawed character is going to be much more significant than skin color ever will.

    black people were freed by republicans. black people voted for republicans until welfare came along. now the democrats have them in slavery again.

    black and proud = hero, white and proud = racist.

    You damn right we would crawl across broken glass to vote for a black conservative. We Rep. haven’t had a racist attidtude against a black not that I’m aware of. There blood is the same color as mind. So it is the Dems you are trying to brainwash the black people to thinking that the conservative whites are against them. It was the white rep. that stood up for the black long time ago. It is the dems that are doing their little tricks constantly. The blacks are just as much as a hero as the whites. but not to the dems they want to keep them in the dark —but finally the truth is coming out in a big way and support isn’t from the dems but the conservatives. Yea!!!!!!

    I don’t think the blackman has a chance in Hell to be elected for anything anymore because of what OBAMA has done to his own race. Think about it.

      I don’t hate Obama because he’s black. I hate him for what he is doing to my country and my freedoms. I would vote for J.C. Watts, Allen West, Ben Carson and other blacks that have real conservative values, Christian faith, and high moral values. When I was in the Army, all references to anyone’s race, color or creed, was no longer allowed on any forms. We thought that finally, people were just people no matter the color. Now, the Democrats have taken us back to before the 60s and there is more racial divide and hatred than at any other time in my lifetime, but people like Obama, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, and a few others, have turned many blacks, particularly the younger ones, against whites. It is the Democrats that have tried to keep everyone poor, but especially the blacks. Even the Democrat’s push for more and more abortions is because it mostly targets the blacks – yet blacks are still voting for the Democrats because of the freebies. It doesn’t figure, does it?

    He’s wrong on both counts as far as I’m concerned, I vote for the person, a conservative mind you, that wants to save this country from the anti-American liberal herd, not the color of their skin..

    He is right. If J.C. Watts of OK were on the ticket I would be on the phone 24/7 making calls for him. He would always be my first choice about no matter who was running against him. He is a solid Christian Conservative. Actually he is now a pastor. The man is fabulous.

    A statement of fact, if I have ever heard one! On the Conservative side we are interested only in the quality and principles of the person we intend to vote for, Period! The “pigment of skin” is only a major factor held by the Party that has held-back the Americans, whom by the Grace of God, were born of color. We have one race on this planet, it is called Homo Sapiens, also knows as “Folks”. I, like you, should always have the right to like or dislike a fellow person based on their quality and principles, Period! And, Madame Liar ain’t one of those!

      It’s a fact. At least conservatives look for the truth. I have never followed one party, I have thought on my own, voted for who I thought best. It’s become where I vote more for GOP than liberals because they have went to far for my taste. When their platform is blatant enough to stop free speech over global warming, that’s the last straw. When I see so many on places like this defending Hillary and liberal actions by using the same talking points that Hillary, her minions and the liberal media uses, I know most of these comments are coming from people who don’t take the time to think on their own. Not one original thought. Now it’s very sad because this will destroy this country. When so many of the population can be led around like sheep were in big trouble. The facts are and I missed it until the last few years. The liberals have planned it this way for decades. The media propaganda machine. The indoctrination of children in schools. The cover ups. The ruining of good people lives to hide the truth. Destroy anyone’s reputation who disagrees with you. Stop any logical debates by being a bully. And the largest one is get rid of Christians and their values. Slowly they have taken God and morals out of this country. It might be to late to fix it.

      Unfortumately, that attitude is not to be found in black neighborhoods. Just like going into a MUSLIM neighborhood. The animosity is so real, you can cut it with a knife. And probably have to.

      Good is bad
      Bad is good.
      The evil in some of these people’s lives is EXACTLY what they will accuse YOU of.
      And the worst part is that millions of people actually believe it.
      God help us.
