    Darrell Issa, who has Lebanese Christian ancestry. (Issa is Arabic for Jesus, who is an honored prophet in Islam, but not the Son of God.) I think Arab Christians qualify as honorary Whites. At least, Arab Christian Republican men. Same with Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, of Indian descent but a convert from Hinduism to Catholicism.

    This comes after the immense but at the same time pitiful bragging at the last Republican Convention about the women and minorities in the party, most of whom spoke there.

    Are GOP Efforts to Woo Minorities at National Convention Too Little Too Late?

    America—We built that!
