Who Should Be a Libertarian In Texas?

One very concerning issue for me, as I went to Amarillo a few weeks ago and Houston this weekend, is the whiteness of both events.  I don't think I can remember seeing one brown, black, red or yellow person there.  Do these people oppose liberty (liberty/ freedom:  elutheria -- without liability or obligation) because of race?  I don't think so. Are they unworthy of Libertarian Party membership?  I don't think so.  We have not made them feel welcome because of their race.  That's the only answer.

For the Mexican, he cannot feel comfortable in a party that says it believes in open borders, then endorses candidates who oppose open borders and runs his children from its schools, Marxist schools designed to draw differences between those 'inside' and those 'outside' worthiness for participation.  For the black man or woman, are we to oppose their culture, if we wish to become the party that rules? The same with the yellow man and the red man?  Of course not.

Is there something inherently immoral about these people that disqualifies them from being Libertarian Party leaders?  No.  We just have not been conscious to reach out to them for participation, and that itself is not moral.  It's a sin of omission, if you will.  To the Gandhian, sin is another way of saying violence.  And we Libertarians are the party of non-violence, are we not?

So let us be conscious of who we are and reach out to everyone, for everyone is a Libertarian, if they think it through.
