Salon's Joan Walsh: Prominent Republicans Absent From the Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of MLK's "I Have a Dream" Speech

Joan Walsh: The GOP and African-Americans

"The fact that no leading Republican bothered to attend the 50th anniversary commemoration shows how far to the right they’ve moved on race. It’s not just that they’ve thrown in the towel when it comes to appealing to black voters. They also don’t think it’s worth it to make an extra effort to appeal to white voters who flinch at racism."
Joan Walsh, Salon
