Ruben Navarrette Jr., in a pro-Clarence Thomas column at CNN.com:
That reminds me. One popular misconception is that African-Americans who gravitate toward the Republican Party do so because they agree with the GOP on the issues, perhaps in support of tax cuts or in opposition to same-sex marriage. But, from my dealings with black conservatives, I can tell you that -- for many of them -- their rightward drift began as a reaction to the condescension on the left.
So what is Navarrette saying -- that blacks drift toward the Republican Party even though they have significant disagreements with it? If so, that's not exactly a ringing endorsement of the GOP as a good party for American Americans to be in.
