the + side of this presidency is that a lot of minority voters, who might have been quiet about being conservatives, are now speaking out.  they are standing up to being called "uncle tom" or "traitor to their people" and letting folks know that it's ok to say something.

just as there are many, many, conservative women, there are many, many, conservative minorities.
