George Skelton writes that the California Republican Party is "too white." It doesn't make any difference what race Republicans are. The party should be judged on what it does and how it benefits society.
The Republicans' challenge is that Democrats have inaccurately defined what the GOP is, and they've been aided by a complicit media. Consequently, a lot of non-Republicans have a misconception of who Republicans really are.
Republicans have failed to give others a motivation to find out who Republicans are. Many non-Republicans, happy with the benefits they get from government, have no incentive to reduce the size of government. When they realize that Republicans want to provide them even higher benefits and free them from their bondage to federal and state programs, they will come to our party.
