Howard Dean: GOP the 'White' Party

With both presidential candidates condemning use of the race issue in the campaign, Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean has, once again, put his foot in his mouth by referring to the Republican Party as the “white” party.

According to Breitbart TV, Dean told a group of Democrats “Our party has a been no-majority party for a long time . . . the Democratic Party is made up of lots of different people and we're all minorities in our party.

“That's the way it's been for a long, long time — we are the party of opportunity, so the demographic trends favor the Democrats because we are an inclusive and accepting party. If you look at folks of color, even women, are more successful in the Democratic Party than they are in the white — excuse me [giggles] — in the Republican Party."

It wasn’t the first time he’s made a similar charge. Speaking to a forum in June 2005 in San Francisco Dean said that Republicans are "a pretty monolithic party. They all behave the same. They all look the same. It's pretty much a white Christian party."
