Earlier today, two black men were engaged in a heated conversation at the Conservative Political Action Conference inside National Harbor’s Gaylord Hotel. One of the gentleman was overheard saying as follows:

“Where are all the black people? Where’s the outreach? All I see are the usual suspects. Where are they? Just me and you? Where’s the outreach?”

Clearly they hadn’t read the CPAC schedule for today. At 3:45 p..m. the speaker in the main ballroom was none other than the only black Republican U.S. Senator, Tim Scott (R-S.C.). Also at 3:45 p.m., in another ballroom, was a panel called “Are We Black on the Road to Serfdom?” Sponsored by The Intercollegiate Studies Institute,” the speakers included Washington Examiner‘s Tim Carney and Sam Houston State University history prof Brian Domitrovic.
