Boca orthodontist and GOP donor brings in big-name black conservatives for outreach event

by George Bennett | May 28th, 2013


Some prominent black Republicans and conservatives — including former U.S. Rep. Allen West, former Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll and former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele — are coming to Boca Raton on Thursday for a dinner that aims to bring African Americans into the conservative fold.

The event, which is expected to draw 450 people, is being underwritten by Dr. Larry Kawa, a Boca Raton orthodontist. Kawa is a Republican donor who founded a PAC called American Courage, but he said he’s paying for everything himself — including the dinner and speakers’ travel costs — so the event won’t be tied to the GOP or political organizations.


“The idea is that I want to help enhance awareness within the black community of fiscal conservatism and how it affects them,” said Kawa, who is white. Kawa said he put together a list of 450 dinner invitees by contacting friends and patients who are black and some black churches, including politically connected Rev. O’Neal Dozier‘s Worldwide Christian Center.

In addition to West, Carroll and Steele, the speaker lineup will include Congress Of Racial Equality President Niger Innis and author Kevin Jackson.

  1. Ted the Nimble Says:

    Kawa – you founded a PAC?, Now the IRS will be after you!

    Its a good thing the Post pointed out your “white”. They wouldn’t want their readers to get the wrong idea.

    And its a good thing the Post made sure everyone knows you don’t want this to be tied to the GOP even though they clearly want this to be billed as a GOP event according to the slant on the story.

  2. Carol Says:

    All this time I thought Carroll was in jail. She was so important to Flordida, the governor didn`t bother to mention to say she was leaving, and didn’t see a reason to replace her. COP manna.

  3. Dr Kawa is a Fraud Says:

    I see.

    So now the Republican Party’s stance towards the African-American community is:

    “You need to be force-fed our bullsh*t before we allow you to vote.”

    By the way, there is a video of Dr. Kawa on his PAC site with Ann Coulter. It is replete with lies and the pathetic “You didn’t build that” baloney. Now he’s talking about President Obama’s vacations. Well done idiot!

    Here is a review on Yelp of this a$$hole’s dental practice:

    “They seemed like swindlers and tried to convince me that my son needed major work done and braces quick! At one point they even took my son away for X-rays and tried to have me stay behind while they whisked him away, which I did not allow…where my son goes..I GO! They double talked a lot and at the end made me feel like I was purchasing a new car. Always go with your first instinct. I will get a second opinion and highly doubt they will go near my son’s teeth. They also tried to convince me to start a payment plan for over a period of 18 months with a hefty deposit. His adult teeth aren’t even fully in yet….Be very cautious when you visit them…they sell a good package, but something about this practice screams rip-off”

    Pretty much sums it all up.

  4. Kevin Says:

    Great, free food with conservative strings attached. Do you think he will serve fried chicken and collards to draw them in? Why does this Alfred E Newman clone and braces salesman think he’s qualified to tell black people how they should vote? Why are these so called Black conservative leaders being paid to speak if they are also striving to convince blacks to vote conservative? Shouldn’t Carroll be in jail or something? Maybe she will instruct the participants on how to set up an illegal gambling operation without culpability. Load up the busses in Rivera Beach and take them down to Boca for the free food and pandering. Pathetic………

    @ Carol

    My thoughts exactly! She was gone! This reminds me of the time I was trollin’ for tang’ in lake worth when I saw a bunch of those tea party buffoons protesting on the corner. I drove past them and circled the block, doubled back and was going to give them the “full moon”. Now keep in mind I drive a 87′ accord stick shift and I was alone so I knew this task was going to be challenging to say the least. So I stopped at the end of the block and unbuttoned my pants, dropped trough, and sat on the drivers side door frame with my ample buttocks on full display. Now at this point, I started to get second thoughts but rationalize it to myself by saying “hey, I’m a card-carrying liberal and it is my duty to put those tea-bagging fools in their place”. I drummed up the courage, reached down with my left foot and pushed in on the clutch and with my right foot pressed on the gas and when the engine hit 7,000 RPM’s, I dumped the clutch.
    The car jolted forward violently and accelerated rapidly to roughly 73mph. I’m not sure if you’ve ever tried to drive a car bare-assed while sitting on the door but needless to say, it was impossible! I tried to slip back into the car and in the process, veered to the right and rear-ended a parked car which stopped the car on a dime. I unfortunately did not stop, I was ejected and landed anus-first onto the curb and not only did I break my coxis, I freakin’ SHATTERED it! I was pooping chunks of blood & bone for 2 weeks. Anyway next time I see a GOP’r I’ll just flip them the bird.

    Well Carol, I hope you learned a valuable lesson from my story. Don’t vote Republican!

  6. Ted the Nimble Says:

    The nerve of that guy…talking about Obama’s multi million dollar vacations!!! Everyone knows he’s a man of the people…

  7. Demons Says:

    PBC is democrat dominated.

    They moved from the NE to escape the weather and high taxation, but then create the high taxation here in S FL

    League of Women Voters = endorses democrats – just look at the percentage of democrats endorsed over republicans.
    It’s a FRONT for democrats.

    Here in PBC, which is democrat dominated, where are the latino office holders? Where are the black office holders?

    What a joke the democrat party is. It’s not open to minorities! The classic example is Kendrick Meek and how he was treated by the democrats in FL.
