The entire new website is just horrible.

Really?  I've been extremely dissatisfied with Steele's chairmanship thus far, but I like the new site.  What do you find wrong with it?  I might be missing some things, being that I have no experience in web/graphic design. 

in general, the first black chairman's blog should not be called "What Up," the administrator's login & passord as well as the RNC chairman's gmail password should not be posted, and the GOP's "New Leader" section should not take you to an empty 404 error page.

There are two possibilities:
1) Some white Republican thought this was a good idea
2) Michael Steele thought this was a good idea and the whites felt too racially awkward to call him out on it

My money's on option #2

I was just thinking how funny it would be for some black, Republican, web designer to be like, at the website board meeting being like, hey guys, check out this idea

Apparently the face changes every time you refresh. With a sample size of six, I've gotten two black men, two black women, and two white men. This party couldn't be any more of a self-parody.

Wouldn't it have been cuter if they had weighted each group by their percentage of the American populous populace?  Every five hundred clicks you get a Lithuanian lesbian

edit: I forgot I don't know how to spell

Paul, if you don't mind me asking, how could you not be aware of the "What Up" section, it being included in the title of this thread and all?

Jackie Robinson was a Republican, but he left the GOP because of their views on race. (lol)

haha, I have signatures turned off, but that's funny if we both independently thought that graphic was great.

In all seriousness, it's good for the GOP to do minority outreach.  They have to if they want to remain viable, and one of the easiest ways to initially engage the issue is to do so symbolically. 

Of course, the NRSC has decided to endorse non-incumbent candidates, something Obama doesn't even to do, in at least two-three of the states where a strong grass-roots minority is running (Colorado-Texas-Florida).  They did recruit Sandoval though, hmm.
