I get sick and tired of fuddy duddy, devious and disingenuous Republicans posing the question, Why do blacks treat black conservatives so badly?
Then they trot out good ole Clarence Thomas types as examples. Not J.C. Watts, Colin Powell, Condi Rice nor pre-RNC leader Michael Steele (he was warmly received as a black conservative at Tavis Smiley's State of Black America forum).
I suggest when asked, flipped the question and ask, Why do white conservative Republicans treat and demonize white liberals so much?
Historically, white liberals, especially down south, were called race traitors and ni**@# lovers! Doing the civil rights movement, white liberals were in danger of being lynched, killed and bombed, just like black folks.
In contemporary politics, the Kennedys, Franks, Reids, Pelosis, Gores and Clintons of the world are demonized beyond any fair political play - just read Rush and the gangs demogoguery on the before mentioned white progressives (some are not even liberal).
Just look, the Republican Senator from Massachuetts, Scott Brown has already been labeled a traitor from white conservatives because of his Jobs bill vote with the Dems.
So my conservative friends, before you ask me about black conservatives answer me about white liberals.
