Black people in the US are as different as their skin tones. No one voice can speak for all. Over the years the media has anointed the loudest voice as the leader, but that person only represented a segment of our many voices. Tuesday night Mia Love became the first Republican black woman ever elected to Congress, and Tim Scott became the first black man elected to the Senate since Reconstruction. This is historic, but the NAACP has failed to acknowledge these laudable accomplishments and that is simply not right. They are conservatives and many in the black community do not share their view of the role of government. It is ok to disagree with them but to ignore them is another thing. You can applaud their accomplishments without embracing their ideology. They made history and that should not be ignored it should be applauded.
We should celebrate Mia Love and Tim Scott
