Are Black Republicans 'Sellouts'?

CNN's Roland Martin defends black Republicans against charges that they are traitors to their race:

As someone who has voted for Democrats, Republicans and independents, I’m focused on the issues.

. . .

Listening to one another and making a determination on what a person is saying, as opposed to depending on labels, is vital. So I would hope that black voters in Texas actually listen to Michael Williams, chairman of the Texas Railroad Commission, as he campaigns as a Republican for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. He deserves an audience, just like anyone else.

It's a shame that CNN is getting destroyed in the ratings by its partisan rivals, Fox News and MSNBC. CNN really is the superior cable news network, and it has the most sensible commentators.
