“More than just a race issue, we have a diversity issue…It also boils down to diversity of thought.” – Lenny McAllister breaks down the GOP’s “Autopsy” on Current TV on “The Young Turks”

 

CHICAGO, IL (March 19, 2013) –  (Courtesy Current TV) McAllister says, “More than just a race issue, we have a diversity issue — not just when it comes to racial background or when it comes to sexual orientation. It also boils down to diversity of thought. If you’re not willing to have different conservatives that may disagree with you on 10% of the issues… you’re not going to be able to reach a diverse nation…we have forgotten that we’re fighting to lead a diverse nation (during election time), not just red-state America…”

 

Watch Lenny McAllister as he joins Cenk Uygur (The Young Turks on Current TV) and Mediate.com senior editor Andrew Kirell about whether the Republican Party is prejudiced against minorities.

“In 2010, we ended up seeing a lot more diversity from the Republican Party in regards to the candidates and people actually winning elections, both Latinos and African-Americans.” McAllister says. “I would like to see the same exact thing in 2013 moving forward, but this time not have it just be a trend; have it be an actual movement. That’s something that the Republican Party needs to do if we’re going to lead a diverse America in the 21st century.”
