Bil Browning: Steele: GOP woos blacks with "fried chicken and potato salad"

The Young Republicans convention was held in Indianapolis last weekend and their election of a racist, middle-aged woman as President isn’t the only controversial item to come out of the GOP gathering.

Local Republican blog Hoosier Access was able to get RNC Chairman Michael Steele to sit down with a group of bloggers and they taped the conversation. The old gaffe-o-matic (or as I like to call him, the Republican Joe Biden!) answers a question from a gay person of color in this clip about the GOP’s diversity outreach.

Yes, that’s right. To lure African-Americans into the GOP, Steele is offering “fried chicken and potato salad.” Since he mentions Republicans should also be reaching out to the LGBT community, I wonder what stereotype he’s going to offer us? Buttplugs and Birkenstocks?
