Is this Racial Unity: Andrew Breitbart and Michael Steele to Headline RNC Fundraiser next Month?

The Republican Party says it does not condone the racist elements of the Tea party. So why would they have Andrew Breibart headlining a major fundraiser next month? We all know last week there were many mistakes made in the handling of the Shirley Sherrod case, but one thing we know for sure is the person that started the firestorm: Andrew Breitbart. He is the only person that has not apologized for his involvement. He meant to start a war and he did. So how can the Republicans invite him to headline their event and still claim to want to appeal to minorities? The answer is Breitbart excites the base and they are the ones that attend GOP fundraisers so they could really care less what others think. It’s their party and from the looks of things they want to keep it that way.

    >>He meant to start a war and he did<<

    I disagree. He was responding to the NAA(L)CP's allegations that the Tea Party had "racist elements" by showing a video of an event they hosted where the speaker (Sherrod) was making racist comments. We all know now that the tape was heavily edited and we also know that if Breitbart didn't know it he should have taken the time and done his due diligence before forwarding it. The fact that the RNC is using him to raise money does not mean they aren't looking to expand their base amongst minorities. Republicans would prefer to add blacks to their base by educating them on Republican principles of smaller, less intrusive government and individual freedom. They do not want to add blacks to their party by pandering.
