That is the question. Republicans had apparently realized after the election that the changing demographics for this country are not going to help them win anymore elections. However, it seems now that the Republicans aren't even trying to pretend that they're serious.
The question is if you believe that Republicans are actually going to go through with their plan or if they're going to fall back on their "Southern Strategy". For those unfamiliar this is the basic feeling that has of course been expanded to include "illegal aliens".
"From now on, the Republicans are never going to get more than 10 to 20 percent of the Negro vote and they don't need any more than that...but Republicans would be shortsighted if they weakened enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. The more Negroes who register as Democrats in the South, the sooner the Negrophobe whites will quit the Democrats and become Republicans. That's where the votes are. Without that prodding from the blacks, the whites will backslide into their old comfortable arrangement with the local Democrats."
