First, they have to find a way to make their position on immigration reform stop sounding like they are scared of having too many Hispanics in this country. As long as Republican speakers talk about immigrants who don't learn English (and most immigrants over the two hundred years of this country who did not know English before immigrating rarely learned English, it was always the next generation that learned English) rather than emphasizing the need for secure borders and following the rule of law, the growing Latin American vote will stay 70% Democratic.
Second, they need to accept civil rights laws and stop supporting those who are trying to undermine civil rights laws. For the past forty years, the Republican Party has been attacking affirmative action. Regardless of whether or not the arguments are accurate, making the argument is perceived by African-Americans as taking the side of those who want to keep African-Americans as second class citizens. Likewise, support for the Confederate Flag costs the Republican Party with African-Americans. Regardless of what the Confederate Flag means to Southern Whites, it is a symbol of slavery to African-Americans.
Before you can get anyone to listen to what you think are your good ideas, you have to stop espousing rhetoric which seems to be anti-them. For too long, the Republican strategy has been to try to win with just white voters -- the essence of Nixon's Southern Strategy. That will not work anymore, but to get minority voters, the Republican Party has to be willing to lose the declining number of voters who are still racist and tell them that they have no home in the Republican Party.

As long as the attitudes demonstrated on here by Republicans holds you can forget about the "Minority Vote". Go back and look at the Republican/Conservative questions and answers over the last year in the Elections section and what I am talking about will become very clear.

i think of somebody else hit on it. till the republican occasion stops employing the 'Southern physique of suggestions' the traditional public of black people won't vote for Republicans. The republican occasion caters to the non secular authentic and adverse southern whites. at the same time as not quite asserting something blacks or females opt to hearken to. choose only inspect the election map to be certain that the only states John gained have been interior the South aside from the sparely populated tiny states like North Dakota. applicants like Allen Keys and Sarah Palin do not charm to blacks or females because of the fact the two do not stand for the perspectives of the traditional public of blacks or females.

By appealing to the smallest minority in the world. The individual. There is no place in Conservatism for racist people. If a person considers themselves as a "minority" first and an American second, they have a long way to go before they can consider themselves to be Conservative and are not ready to be Freemen. Freedom is impossible without self-reliance.
"The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities."

It's really very simple. They could follow the lead of liberal democrats and start race-baiting and lying. Make promises they don't intend to keep and do everything they can to build hatred and class envy. It's a formula that's worked for the democrats for 40 years.

There are two possibilities. First is when there is not a black man to vote for, because that is who will get their vote regardless of what he does or stands for. The second is when they find out their government insurance is free, but very few doctors will accept it, just like Medicaid.

Republicans could stop passing laws that favor rich white men, and stop advancing candidates who are bigots.
The f***ing Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan ran for President as a Republican. W publicly denied the validity of my religion.
Maybe when Republicans stop hating minorities, minorities will vote Republican.
