37. There are plenty of blacks - including myself
Edited on Fri Feb-09-07 05:39 PM by beaconess
whose speech (absent of any "black" dialect"), vocabulary ("articulate" - ha ha), religion (Catholic) and artistic preference (I love classical music, Patsy Cline, show tunes and Picasso) might not be considered "culturally black" by some people. And even though I consider myself able to fit in anywhere, I sincerely doubt that I would ever be fully embraced by the Republican establishment (nor would I want to be) because I do not share their political philosophy.

I believe that Rice and Powell are considered "not really black," partly because of their "cultural" leanings, but the real reason they are so readily accepted is that they have bought in to their political philosophy.
