Meet Mia Love-GOP Congressional Candidate

Mia Love could make history this fall. she could be the first black woman elected as a Republican. She is running to represent the 4th congressional District in Utah. Love is a Mormon and she is a married mother of three. I saw her interviewed today on CNN and one of the questions she was asked struck me as odd. The interviewer commented about the fact that her election would be historical and then she asked her what were her feelings when President Obama was elected. It was interesting that the interviewer probably expected her to say it gave her a sense of pride but that is not what she said. She simply started saying her own talking points which is what most politicians would have done.

    It is a continuous source of frustration to me that the media, particularly on air talent, still think that if you are black you think and feel and respond like all other blacks. The evil twin to that notion is the belief that if you don’t think and feel and respond like the majority of blacks they’ve dealt with, it must be because you are a “sellout”; you couldn’t POSSIBLY have a different opinion unless you were on “the take” or trying to suck up to “the man”. It’s demeaning. Two white guys walking down the street can have completely different views, and that’s cool. Let one black guy differ from another, and it’s newsworthy. I eagerly await the day when we truly are judged by the content of our character, and not the color of our skin.
