    I can assure you, liberal BLACK Democrats use the "N" word to describe Tim Scott behind closed doors. If Scott were communists pro-union "rich man" hater, he'd be getting visits from thugs rappers and movie stars.

    More speculative nonsense...You might be thinking about people like your self using such terminology.

    @Sonny Excuse me? But um what America do you think you're living in? Last I checked, black Republicans were Uncle Tom's and traitors to their people.

    @RobertJHarsh Well that's interesting...But next time you "check" please be sure to ask someone OTHER than the black republican candidate pandering for your vote.

    @RobertJHarsh Its like I have said...Nobody in the black community ever even pays any attention to an African-American Republican candidate....So why waste time calling him any names?

    @Sonny I did not call him any names. I can assure you, I have worked with black GOP guys and the language and insults used against black Republicans by black Democrats are far worse than used against white Republicans.

    When hasn't it been brought up... when I read that New Yorker article about Scott, there were no serious paragraphs about Mr. Scott's achievements as a person. The entire article is about "race". Is this an example of East Coast sophistication? Is this the true face of the fabled New York intelligentsia? And what's more, many of the comments focus on what is "obviously" a right wing scheme "to undermine democracy" (that's my favorite). Pathetic, really, across the board.

    @Thunderchicken I suppose for the same reason that any white voter would vote for some "incompetent white candidate".....

    @Jim49418 I don't recall saying anything that says any such thing...So what are you right wingers taking out of context at this time...I looked back at my few statements here, and found no such "proof of anything"...Oh, and by the way. I am not a Democrat.

    One of those times I can see both facets and agree with both. Republicans do have a long way to go, and Democrats will have to avoid an "Uncle Tom" mine field.

    @martydotcom bad boy, but kinda funny! I predict he will win election. Although the national party would prefer a mainstream repub to a tea party type, tea sells in s. carolina, and he does give the national party something they need...

    @PoliticalSpice Dead man walking, whites woun't vote for him and neither will hard core teaparty (3/4 the state. Good looking choice no life span

    @martydotcom you are much closer to the action, so i need give your opinion a lot of weight. But I am surprized. Why would she nominate him? his loss will hurt the party nationally far more then if he had never been picked in the first place. And although West lost, he was elected once, so what makes you think it is so lost a cause?Are the tea party really ready to lose this seat over racism? I think racist are hateful, but they are not necissarily stupid, except on issues of race...

    There are no such thing as a a "black conservative"...only conservatives. It does not matter to us Teapartiers what color you are, only if you're on board with getting this country back on firm financial footing and getting big government out of our lives before it's too late.

    @Thunderchicken I keep trying to tell you guys that the black community rarely, if at all uses crap terms like that. By now everyone is used to African Americans running on the republican ticket...That's old news...Usually it the black republican candidate him self who says that someone called him an "uncle tom"...And most of the time that NEVER happened...But his white "conservative audience" ---just "eats it all up"!!!! But it's BS!...Usually an African-American running for office as a republican is just mostly IGNORED by the black community. That is the reality of it.

    @Sonny keep living in fantasyland sonny. Fact is all blacks do consider those that are aligned with the GOP to be "uncle toms" or the "house" slave in the words of Malcolm X.

    @Sonny 93% of the black voters showed all that racism is alive and well on November 6th. Rep's believe in earning it, Dems believe in handing it out.

    @Republican5001 Have you ever heard an African American call another an "uncle tom"? Or are you, once again, simply taking the candidates word for it? Which is it? And if you did, when and where did you witness that?

    I voted I'm not sure for the sheer fact I couldn't make heads or tails out of the article. The goal/job of politicians is to represent what their constituents want. If he does just that, then I am all for it. Good luck!

    I think it might be better said,"to represent what their powerbroakering,money laundering constituents want"?(both parties)

    I just hope that the dems don't try a "southern strategy" campaign where they put up a very conservative candidate and play up the race issue. I'd rather lose with dignity than stoop to the level of the GOP in order to win the seat.

    Not all opposition to obama is racist, and not all racist will vote against a black candidate. The klu klux klan let it be known they supported clarence thomas during the senate confirmation hearings. I would prefer someone more progressive then this giy whether that person is white black or purple. Fact is in south carolina if dems want to win they will be picking a conservative candidate. And in a race like this, unless both candidates are black, race will be an issue. I hope anyone stupid enough to make it overtly an issue loses, but in the u.s. I wouldn't count on it. I think the likelyhood of a dem winning on s carolina, where moderate mitt couldn't even win thd primary are tiny indeed. I think the pick is an effort by the gov to help her party play to a national audience. My guess is he will win election when the time comes.

    yes, from what i have read very few black conserves and they are attacked by the bigots who think them a traitor for not being a give me type person.

    He will probably be reelected, and if the majority of his support is white, so what? That is the difference between liberals and conservatives, and also speaks to the black voters in general. First, the conservatives/republicans are really the ones who do not care about a person's race, only his/her qualifications. The liberals make a big deal out of the ethnicity of a particular candidate, and if they can show diversity, qualifications make no difference. Witness some of the clowns in congress from the democratic party right now...I won't name names. Regarding black voters, the writer just illustrated the obvious with this article. Many blacks will vote democratic without considering qualifications or positions. So it really does not matter who the democrats run, race, gender, qualifications, nothing matters to the black electorate except that it is a democrat. And it doesn't even dawn on them that a black candidate could believe in conservative principles.

    Yes, but in his small congressional district...Now he will have to do it statewide...And that's a big difference!

    @Sonny If you are determined to maintain a lying stereotype you are free to believe that. But it brands you as the racist, not the voters.

    @Realthinker How is it a "lying stereotype" to point out the fact that ALL Congressmen get elected by ONLY the people from their own small particular congressional district, but US Senators have to run statewide?!?! How is that a lie? And how does my saying that make me a racist?!??---Please tell give us your reasoning?

    @Realthinker Oh, that's what you mean...Well, ok...I'll remember that when he is making his concession speech, on election day, in 2014...LOL!

    Why is race a constant consideration? When are we going to look at the achievements of a person instead of the color of their skin?
    Obama is supposedly half White and half Black, and yet is a complete and udder failure. So was it his "White half" or "Black half" that failed? I supposed you'll claim the opposite of what your skin color is.

    I believe anyone who shares a conservative view will. Heck, Obama received White Votes. The problem is that Left Wingers and hate groups like the Nation of Islam are keeping racism alive.

    relative absence of black voters?"
    Well, Democrats will always get majority's of the so called "BLK VOTE"
    Because they have always and will always seek something for nothing and they have been indoctrinated by liberal democrats, and that will never change.
    Democrats keep them poor and dumb...Those indeed are just the true facts.

    The truth is this: we live in a multicultural country and the origin of a person
    should not be important as long as he or she is capable and competent, if you
    have a different opinion look at George Bush Jr. and SELAH: was he able?

    Other than the trivial matter of a few grams of melanin Mr Scott is not that different from Sen DeMint. The balance of power in the Senate does not change with his appointment.
