Last week I received a document from The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies one of the nation’s premier research and public policy institutions and the only one whose work focuses exclusively on issues of particular concern to African Americans and other people of color.
This document funded by the AARP should be required reading for any person interested in Republican minority outreach. If there is a glimpse of hope for the party in this 30 page document it is that on average younger blacks agree with the Republican Party than the Democrat Party. However the document states that the southern white male dominate image of the parties leadership keeps many of them away.
The document is entitled "Blacks and the 2008 Republican Convention" a free copy is available for download HERE. For more information, go to www.jointcenter.org
