From RNC chairman Michael Steele, talking to Roland Martin on a new Sunday talk show aimed at black audiences:

MARTIN: One of the criticisms I've always had is Republicans — white Republicans — have been scared of black folks.

STEELE: You're absolutely right. I mean I've been in the room and they've been scared of me.
