Is the GOP a political party or a tribe?

What's Really Wrong With the GOP

Rep. Alan Grayson
U.S. Congressman for Florida's 9th District

For a five-month period that ends this week, every single elected Republican in Congress was a white Christian.

Let me repeat that: every elected GOP Member of the House and Senate was a white Christian.

Eric Cantor is Jewish. He left office on August 1 last year. Since then, the entire elected GOP caucus, in both the House and the Senate, has comprised only white Christians.

13 percent of America is African-American. 9 percent is of mixed race. 5 percent is Asian. 24 percent does not identify itself as Christian. 0% of those groups served as elected Congressional Republicans during the past five months.

GOP motto: "We're monochromatic!" The GOP: Is it a political party, or is it a tribe?

I do not consider myself a member of the GOP, I do believe those who count and divide based on race or religion are a part of the problem and not a part of the solution. If skin color doesn't matter, why bother counting? If we are free to choose top participate or not participate in religion, why count?
