Black America has no use for black liberals or black conservatives

A New York Times article reports that at least 32 black Americans are vying for congressional seats this year. That is commendable if you believe in the effectiveness of the two-party system.

Some commentators, like Roland Martin, don’t believe black Republicans will experience any success this year given that Republican values may be too far from the values of black Americans.

America has experienced politically divisive periods before including the past presidential election cycle. This mid-term election cycle is just as divisive if not more so given the buyers’ remorse toward President Obama, Wall Street’s alleged problems, health care reform, and high unemployment.

Shouldn’t this be the time that the black electorate play power broker versus putting all its political eggs in one of either two pots?
