ESPN Host Causes Controversy: Suggests Blacks Should Vote Republican

ESPN host Stephen A. Smith gave an impassioned monologue at the Impact Symposium at Vanderbilt University in Nashville that has caused quite a stir.

What I dream is that for one election, just once, every black person in America vote Republican,

Smith compared blacks voting for Republicans to customers “shopping around” for businesses that will cater to them.

What I dream is that for one election, just one, every black person in America vote Republican. Because from what I’ve read, and I’m open to correction, but from what I’ve read, Barry Goldwater is going against Lyndon B. Johnson. He’s your Republican candidate. He is completely against the Civil Rights Movement. Lyndon B. Johnson was in favor of it. What happens is, he wins office, Barry Goldwater loses office, but there was a senate, a Republican senate, that pushed the votes to the president’s desk. It was the Democrats who were against Civil Rights legislation. So because President Lyndon B. Johnson was a Democrat, black America assumed the Democrats were for it.
