Black Republicans in Alabama Are Getting the Party Started
BJ Major, Cherokee County Board of Education
B.J. Major, who is seeking a seat on the Cherokee County Board of Education, became a Republican only last year. The reason, he said in an interview with AL.com, is that the nation has been "tilting too far to the left." Major also said that he believes most Blacks share the GOP's conservative views. "They just don't realize it," he added.
