Several Questions for Black Republicans

In the interest of full disclosure, on both sides of my family we have had our fair share of Republicans.  In fact several now deceased family members where leaders in Black Republicanism.  I am now asking the following questions not out of disrespect but because I truly want to understand how Black Republicans justify their allegiance to a party that has repeatedly used dirty tactics in order to suppress the votes of Blacks (see VA Senate race) and other minorities?  Were you proud of this administration and it’s handling of the poor, elderly and disabled who were left behind during Hurricane Katrina?  Do you continue to support a war that is going hopelessly wrong and is responsible for the deaths of nearly 3000 US troops and over 650,000 Iraqis?  Do you think the ever changing goals in Iraq are more important than standing by and watching the people of Darfur either enslaved or killed in an apparent ethnic cleansing? 

I could kinda understand embracing Republicanism after Nixon through Bush Daddy (personally I despised Reagan), but when the neo-cons took over the party didn’t you start to question whether or not it was a good idea to get into bed with those thugs?  Based upon my own world view (Evangelical), I hold many common beliefs with the “stated” platform of the party but since many of the party leaders are dishonest, immoral, disingenious and hypocritical I have never been able to feel comfortable taking up their flag.  Can anyone please explain why you have chosen that particular team?
