Killed by the Devil’s Details

It’s Juneteenth! Did you hear what the Republican Party of VA had to say about the holiday?
Yeah, I didn’t either.
Well, surely the first African American head of the RNC put a statement, video, or something to mark the day, right?
But, wait…this is the Party of Lincoln! You know, guy who freed the slaves? You’d think that same party would be all over today and putting together as much fanfare as they could. Do we as the current crop of Republicans not remember-or worse, know-our own history?
Selectively so, it would seem.
These are the details that kill the GOP’s perception in the black community (and kudos to Bob McDonnell for trying to get it right). There’s something fundamentally flawed-and strategically stupid-about a group of people that uses ending slavery as its biggest selling point blowing of a holiday that celebrates the same.
Great work, guys.
