People think that because we have a black president race is no longer an issue. That people are no longer suppressed and that all is well with the world. This creates a type of complacency, a type of message that extra efforts don't need to be made to level the playing field and I've had enough.
To remain relevant, Republicans must reach people in America now, not the people who lived here in the past. The current brand of conservatism may have worked for people historically (or not), but that was then, we need to progress to now.
