ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - They've been called Oreos, traitors and Uncle Toms, and are used to having to defend their values. Now black conservatives are really taking heat for their involvement in the mostly white tea party movement—and for having the audacity to oppose the policies of the nation's first black president.
"I've been told I hate myself. I've been called an Uncle Tom. I've been told I'm a spook at the door," said Timothy F. Johnson, chairman of the Frederick Douglass Foundation, a group of black conservatives who support free market principles and limited government.
Is this right?
I agree ANON 101 I am an AA Republican. I'm proud to say I'm not a follower. I do what I feel is right even if the majority in my race disagree. I think for myself and most AA Republicans looked into politics a little more for them to even consider being a Republican. The democrats who believe this or say this are immature and yes they do lack good character.

No it's not right but you know the rules, you can only be a true black person if you vote democrat.
It's on page 5 of the democrat handbook.
