GOP: Time for a New Calculus

"The calculus of the GOP has been that they do not require the support of the black community to win governance. In an America of changing demographics, a political practice that seeks to overpower and ignore minority political constituencies is not a winning formula. The GOP will have to squarely confront the issues of concern to black voters in an effective way (Latinos as well) to harness the political power of these constituencies. Conservative ideology is more than equal to the task, but what passes for GOP/conservative political practice is not."
