Overview

In the eyes of many, an African American commits the ultimate act of betrayal if he or she dares to express conservative beliefs. Ironically, those before us fought for African Americans to simply vote, not be handcuffed to one particular party.

Still, because approximately ninety percent (90%) of African Americans are registered Democrats, it’s almost as if we have a “negrofied” bible that says, “If you’re black, you’re Democrat”—and that’s it. Period. That closed frame of mind leaves little desire to even acknowledge another viewpoint, let alone try to understand it.

Black People Can’t Be Republican is a collection of short stories based in Anytown, USA that explores viewpoints from various angles in a debate format—not only about political party affiliations, but other hot-button topics common in the community, such as the N-word, homosexuality, “thick” versus “fat”, and sagging pants.

I like how the author used various viewpoints for different topics, especially about the debate on political affiliation among African Americans. I don't think the previous reviewer even read the book.

Well as a black and a Republican...this book is a racist turn off. Last time I checked, this is America and we have the FREEDOM (key word) to choose to be apart of any party that we wish. Why wouldn't black want to be Republicans, you know te people who freed the slaves AND fought against Democrats for civil rights?
