Do black people support
Obama because he's black?

Associated Press, by Jesse Washington

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/13/2012 2:54:59 PM

Surviving slavery, segregation and discrimination has forged a special pride in African-Americans. Now some are saying this hard-earned pride has become prejudice in the form of blind loyalty to President Barack Obama. Are black people supporting Obama mainly because he's black? If race is just one factor in blacks' support of Obama, does that make them racist? Can blacks' support for Obama be compared with white voters who may favor his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, because he's white?

Comments:
Mr. Jackson makes a rather superficial argument that yes, blacks support 0bama because he's black, but that's cool because it's a black thing. In other words, this is just a screed that justifies rampant & overt racism among many blacks. I find his inference that white people support Romneny only because he's white to be particularly offensive.

A true test would be if a black Republican were the candidate. Although their policies have destroyed the black family and community, dims have bought the black vote with taxpayer money for decades.

All you have to do is ask them about 0bama's policies. Sometimes even about who his VP is.

Do rivers run to the sea?

Do wolves howl at the moon?

Do bears do their thing in the woods?

Is the Pope Catholic?

Is Grant buried in Grant's tomb?

Was George Washington's white horse white?

Was the War of 1812 fought in 1812?

What a stupid question!

Of course they do. Not all, not by any means - but the majority.

Do white liberals support Obama because he's black? You bet they do. That's the reason he was elected: to be America's First Black President. That was the main thing for many liberals and most of the media. The race angle is STILL the main thing for some of them. One thing we have to give Obama, however: he has run that excuse into the ground and caused a lot of people to have second thoughts about skin color as a qualification for the presidency(or anything else). Maybe it wasn't such a smart idea after all to elect an affirmative action president just so people could feel good about themselves that they were not prejudiced.

Wait, how can you say or think that??? Wasn't it Dr. Martin Luther king who, in his great "I Have a Dream Speech" on the National Mall, said "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today". Dr. King must be rolling in his grave!!!

A better idea would be to compare the ratio of black people who voted for Obama versus white people who voted for Obama. Millions of white people voted for Obama but how many black people voted for McCain?

Yes, most black people voted for Obama because he is black. So did many white people, for the same reason. However I have a feeling that this sort of largesse on the part of American voters will not happen again. This feel-good effort attempting to prove that white people are not racists was a huge failure, not because Obama is black but because he is unqualified and because of that we are reaping the whirlwind.

Duh! Blacks got on board after all those Black voters in Iowa gave him a win in Iowa and they started believing he could get the nomination! But as I said on a post last week, he's failed Americans in general, and Blacks in particular during his term...it's as if Jackie Robinson was the first, but average only .150 a season for 4 seasons, and not the MVP as he was. We now know he can't "bring it"...The increased turnout of Black women and youth he benefitted from in 2008 will not be repeated in 2012.

For most blacks, Obama is the best of all possible worlds. A black plantation owner. They still need to be slaves and this owner will give them what they want. Better free housing, food, and no need to tend the crops. Some individuals have gone past this to enjoy the blessings of freedom but most stay on the liberal plantation of indoctrination through government, schools, and media. Unfortunately, all they're getting is socialist doctrine.

Never heard of Stacey Dash until yesterday . . she's hot. According to her bio, "She is of Bajan, African American, and Mexican descent". She's too attractive and smart to have to play the black victim role, hence her decision to think for herself.

#2 poses the right question, and the answer is that black voters as a general rule do not support black GOP candidates. Black voters in PA went overwhelmingly for Ed Rendell over Lynn Swann for Governor here some years back. How much black support is there for Allen West or anyone else who dares step off the Democrat plantation? Is Condi a sought-after speaker to black groups, is Thomas Sowell revered as he should be in the black community? You have to be black and a racialist (translation: Democrat) to receive black support.

It is amazing to me that the mith prevails that only white folks can be bigots. The facts are:

All backs are racists - False
Some blacks are racists - True
All whites are racists - False
Some whites are racists - True

The same holds true for other races.

The fact that Obama got over 90% the vote when they usually vote 60-40 for Democrats is proof that race was a significant factor.

The fact that a majority of whites also voted for Obama shows that race was not a significant factor.

What a waste of cyberspace. Of course, Black people proved their loyalty and voted for Obama because he's (sort of) Black. Of course, a lot of White people proved they're (sort of) not racist by voting for him.

Can we all just grow up now and vote for the one who actually knows what he's doing? And maybe help ALL of us have a better life instead of only focusing in on "what's in it for me"?.

As a Black male, when I tell people I have no intention of returning 0bama to the White House, my peers often look at me as if I had a third eye growing from my forehead. Problem is, not only are most of my peers often *CLUELESS* on subjects such as Benghazi, Solyndra or "Fast and Furious", they usually can't even mount a coherent defense of The Won's policies (usually because of that same cluelessness). If a White guy was guilty of the same screw-ups as the 0bama administration, they'd demand his head on a pike. But the Emporer With No Clothes seems to get a pass on all this stuff. Why?

Do they vote for him just because he's Black? Well, I can't find any other explanation.

The answer to all the questions is yes.

The blacks supported the Mulatto Kid even though he has little black blood but he looks like them, so it's OK.

The whites supported the Mulatto Kid because they are liberal leftists who think it's cool to support blacks no matter that they are inexperienced, arrogant and liars.

Voters in the US are not the sharpest tacks in the drawer. They are too easily led by smooth-talking, attractive looking people who have no brains and no experience to speak of. Why they throw their vote and their money on such poor candidates is quite astounding.

We all know, as a race, 90% of all black people traditionally vote for the Democratic candidates. With Obama running in 2008, very few black people failed to vote for him. And that is understandable.

But the situation has changed in that people know more about him, and we all have had the opportunity to understand the direction he is taking and wants to take our nation.

It is not racist to say no thanks. I don't like what you want to do because I think you are wrong. And I can honestly say it has nothing to do with the color of his skin.

The worst thing I hear black people say is that they think Obama cares about them. My observation is that there has never been a president or presidential candidate that cared less for black people. Otherwise he would have worked to rebuild the black family and given priority to programs that help black men find jobs.

Obama has made a career using the color of his skin, his liberal white friends, and the exploitation of black people to achieve political success, and become personally very wealthy.

The only thing worse than being a poorly educated, poorly trained and poorly paid dud is being all that with no one to blame except yourself and your own laziness. Hitler figured that out in Germany and the masses were more than happy to blame the Jews. Obama, Sharpton, Jesse Jackson have successfully placed the blame on the whites .Except, of course those clear-eyed brave white liberals who will be kind enough to tell you what to do and who to blame. And, of course, free 'Bama fo's and free foo stamps.

#18, really? Stacy is racially and ethnically mixed but identifies as Black because it it's probably the most in her racial blend.

Obama is 50% white and %50 black. That his father was Arab is not an argument. Arab is not a race. He's still 50% black if you believe his father was the other guy. In any event, Obama has strong Arabic associations and blacks have no clue they are used for political gain and serve no other purpose to them other than to get the vote. Why they don't get the perpetual joke is beyond me.

Osama bin Laden´s son-in-law, the voice of fiery al-Qaida propaganda videotapes after the Sept. 11 attacks, was convicted Wednesday of conspiring to kill Americans for his role as the terror group´s spokesman. The verdict came after about five hours of deliberation in the case against Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the highest-ranking al-Qaeda figure to face trial on U.S. soil since the attacks. The Kuwaiti imam had testified during a three-week trial that he answered bin Laden´s request in the hours after the attacks to speak on the widely circulated videos used to recruit new followers willing to go on suicide missions like

BRUSSELS - President Barack Obama says he´s concerned that some NATO allies are reducing their spending on defense. Obama says for collective defense to work, everybody has to pitch in. He says that´s necessary to ensure that NATO remains a credible force in the world. Obama says NATO can´t just be a U.S. or British exercise. Obama spoke at a news conference with European Union leaders in Brussels amid concern about Russia´s annexation of the Ukrainian region of Crimea.

Early NASA diapers forced astronauts to

When NASA astronauts were suiting up to go to space in the 1960s, they had to make a big decision before they explored the world above us: How large of a man are you? Getting it wrong could damage the mission. According to a former NASA life support system expert who helped construct space diapers, otherwise known as Maximum Absorbency Garment systems, each astronaut in the Gemini and Apollo programs had to wear a condom-type sheath with a hole at the end for urination inside their suits.

A new species of praying mantis, Liturgusa algorei, indigenous to the thick rain forests of Peru has been named after former vice president Al Gore; one of 19 new species of the insect recently identified by entomologist Gavin Svenson. The discoveries came after Svenson, curator of invertebrate zoology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, decided to search through both old collections at museums and embark on field expeditions into the forests of Central and South America. Unlike the patient, zen-like praying mantis we´re all familiar with, these equatorial cousins take a decidedly different approach to both hunting and self-preservation. "This group,

President Obama, like most Kenyan politicians, loves beating about the bush and avoiding the real issue. In Kenya, we all know the big problem is corruption, but we are addressing virtually everything else but corruption. And so in America, our cousin President Obama dances around serious issues like the typical Kenyan he is. When Russia invaded Georgia in 2008, Obama thundered with indignation and a fulsome, righteous — and justified — anger. The people of Georgia thought he would follow through on his fiery words with real action to set their country free of Russia’s torment, but wapi! With Cousin Barry, as with

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC talk show is facing cancellation amid poor ratings, sources exclusively tell Confidenti@l.Farrow, 28 — the opinionated, blue-eyed son of actress Mia Farrow and either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra (even Farrow’s not sure which) — has been a disaster for MSNBC. The channel took the frequent cable-show guest and handed him his own program, “Ronan Farrow Daily,” which premiered in late February.The theory was that Farrow, a Rhodes scholar who graduated college when he was 15 and went on to score degrees from Yale and Oxford, would bring his 245,000 Twitter followers with him to television

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

Today sees the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s (IPCC) latest findings on the state of "global warming" and the news isn´t good. Here are some of the highlights: Giant malarial mosquitoes the size of crane flies may descend en masse and drain us of our blood so quickly with their powerful razor sharp probosces that we won´t even have time to be infected - we´ll be dead before we hit the floor; Bangladesh, Tuvalu, The Maldives and Florida will all be submerged; Four horsemen with skulls for faces, glowing red eyes and huge scythes will gallop across

A cup of Earl Grey ´as good as statins´

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
