GOP Event for African-American Outreach Featured Largely White Audience

[The Root]

It seems that the Republican Party’s latest attempt to embrace African Americans is off to a shaky start. The audience at a Detroit event celebrating the opening of anAfrican-American Engagement Office appeared to consist mainly of white people, a video snippet shows.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) was in the city last Friday to help launch the office and woo African-American voters, but the turnout for the event, at Grace Bible Chapel, shows just how far the GOP has to go, the Huffington Post notes.

Paul first spoke at the new office in front of a mostly black audience of supporters. “Today’s opening of this office is the beginning of a new Republican Party,” he said.
