Experts: CPAC needs to focus on compassion, not numbers
This year’s CPAC focuses on changing the Republican message to reach out to women and African Americans.
Voice of Russia’s Jamila Bey and Carmen Russell-Sluchansky talk about their impressions of this year’s CPAC:
In the edition, Russell-Sluchansky and Bey critique Republican outreach, which gives the impression that it’s driven by a need for higher voting numbers rather than actually caring about people.
Bey says that the Republican party wants to be “more inclusive”, with a message of “tolerance”. However, she, like many other black women, “does not want to be tolerated” in the face of support for things such as Stop and Frisk and decreased access to medical care.
