nothing, I imagine lots of nationalist/racist/religionist organizations in their own way do good for their own self-segregated communities. I wouldn't support them to have political power over me though, unless of course I happened to be in their own self-defined group, which I'm not.
and again, some presidential candidates happen to belong to churches that demand political allegiance based on skin color.
