Roland Martin Calls Out The GOP: Why Are You Scared Of Black People? (VIDEO)

Ever since “Washington Watch with Roland Martin” launched in 2009, we have made a point of trying to get conservative officeholders – Republicans – on the show. Phone calls were made to the House Republican Conference and the Senate Republican Conference. More than a year later a year – only one sitting member of Congress who was a Republican came on “Washington Watch,” Georgia congressman Tom Price.

You have all these Republicans who say they want to reach out to African-Americans, many claim they want to talk to African-Americans and many of them represent African-Americans. So, we want to understand why are the Republicans scared of Black people?
