Do black people support
Obama because he's black?

Associated Press, by Jesse Washington

Original Article

Posted By:STLstudent, 10/13/2012 6:10:44 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? These questions have long animated conservatives who are frustrated by claims that white

Comments:
Can a major news bureau ask a more inane question? With something like 95% of black Americans voting for Obama, this mental giant asks the question, "Are blacks voting for Obama because he is black?" Obama's policies are of the kind that has destroyed black families and for decades kept blacks in slavery to their plantation masters in the federal government. Blind black support of Obama is powerful evidence that black America is the most racist ethnic group in our nation.

I know black Pastors are trying to get their flocks to recognize that the same sex marriage and gay issues are against their teachings..we will have to see which God they choose to obey.

They aren't voting for him because he is a successful president,because he is not. They aren't voting for him because he lowered unemployment ion the Black community because he didn't (it went way up). So are blacks voting for Obama because Obama because he is black---YES. Is that racist? Absolutely.

As a teacher in an urban school district I can relate the following beliefs that they hold to be fact:
1. My students believe that blacks make up about half of the US population.
2. If Romney is elected "they" will bring back slavery. Even worse, their benefits will get cut.
3. 75% cannot tell time on a face clock, only the digital readout on their expensive cell phone.
4. Some believe that white people let Obama get elected knowing he would fail and we would never elect another black person.

There is only so much you can teach students like this. They hear this at home, in the church, etc.

Some do. There are, however, a number of black persons whom I have heard calling conservative talk radio shows saying that they plan to vote for Romney for all the same reasons that many people here cite: the economy, jobs, defense, the country's future, etc.

A black commentator once said: We hate him but we hate you even more. I think he was joking. It would matter if Snow White were the nominee of the dims. They'll vote dim because it's the party that takes money from the rich in the form of taxes and gives part of it to the poor and they pocket the rest.

Obama's failure and rejection of him has nothing to do with race. He's a socialist at home and islamic hugger overseas. Nobody put a gun to his head to be this type president. Socialism has always failed and overseas muslims will never become westerners,no matter how much you kow tow to them.

You can't defy history just because you think you're smarter than your predecessors. Socialism kills people's self motivation and has no where to go but down.Islam is built around racial hatred,maybe that's why the left wouldn't mind power sharing with them.

#5, the most unfortunate part of the plague known as obama is that it will take decades before a constitutionally qualified, competent black person will receive a major party presidential nomination. Every time a competent black comes forward, people will see an image of the sneering kenyan in their mind.

Number 5, I think perhaps your fourth item has some truth to it. With Obama we've been witness to the most corrupt, racially biased Justice Department in recent memory. People are going to remember Eric "The Red" Holder's policy of not prosecuting blacks, including the disgusting Black Panther incidents at the Philly voting sites as well as the highly illegal bounty on Zimmerman in the Trevon Martin fiasco.

Simple answer, Yes.

FTA: ~~Obama captured 95 percent in 2008~~

However, just imagine....Should we see 95 percent of white people voting for a white candidate, now THAT would be racist.

Well, if you asked if they supported him because he is purple, I think the answer woudld be no. So if you try all the other colors you can think of, eventually you get one with at least a few more "yes" answers.

The good news -and it is good news- is that the question is finally being asked in the mainstream media. The bad news is that, to judge by the news item, the answers given are incredible nonsense. An actor boasts that he voted for Obama because he is black - and rationalizes this by claiming that everybody votes for people "who look like them." Others say that Obama is somebody to be proud of. All of them focus on skin color. None seems to comprehend the obvious, that the color of someone's skin says nothing about them as an individual. It does not tell us whether they are good or bad, smart or stupid, accomplished or failures, qualified or unqualified etc.

Blacks have their share of blame in the perpetuation of such crude racism, but the real villains are the white liberals who are obsessed with race. White liberals are responsible for elevating Barack Obama to the presidency because they thought it would be nice, look good and prove something for America to have her First Black President. The media pounded this drum 24/7. It was all about race. It is STILL all about race for some.

There are racists in America. Most of them are Democrats and on the Left. The racists are the ones who are obsessed with race, who are always talking about race, dragging race into every issue, and, of course, who go around accusing everyone they see of being a racist. Normal Americans are content to judge others as individuals, not as members of a race or examples of a group. It it the Leftists with their categories and collectivism who are responsible for racism as well as every other -ism today.

Only 99% of blacks will vote for Obama because he is black. The 1 % will vote for Romney because they remain true to their beliefs...no gay marriage. Others within the 99% have already come up with their justification as to why they'll vote against their church beliefs so let the stammering and stuttering begin. Rev Al and Rev Jesse will vote for anything and say anything as long as money comes their way.

Found out from one of my son's black friends, that his father (who became a muslim while in prison for a few years)is voting for Romney this time. The guy is a foreman somewhere in a wearhouse, but seems to get it this time around. Anecdotal, but was quite a surprise to me since the guy seems a bit militant.

Don't know if the MSM would even let the word out if they found their polls tilting off Zero even slightly in the black community.

Me and the Mrs. are as white as sheets...and we're voting white. Just like we did the last time. It's got nothing to do with "racist"...it's got everything to do with competence. McCain wasn't a 1st choice, but he was definitely better in the "I Love America" category than the Socialist Affirmative Action Community Organizer.

No.

If a black Republican ran, he would get a slightly greater percentage of the black vote than the 1 or 2 percent that ordinarily vote Republican, but the number that vote Democrat would still be in the 90 percentile. If anything, many would stay home and not vote at all. They are brainwashed to vote Democrat. The fact that Obama is black only provided greater motivation for blacks to get out and vote.

I believe many are voting for him because he is a black Democrat. Whenever you see Allen West, Condoleezza Rice, Mia Love, Stacey Dash, Clarence Thomas etc. they are called horrific racial slurs by blacks for being sellouts, yet Robert Byrd, a white Democrat Senator was a self proclaimed KKK member is forgiven for his past sins of burning crosses and his hateful, racist speeches that included calling blacks the "N" word.

Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart famously said pornography is difficult to define, but "I know it when I see it."

Progressives say racism is hard to define, but they know it when they NEED it.

Today's civil rights leaders and their Democratic enablers have unforgivably cheapened the truly heroic fight of an earlier generation of American blacks who stood against real racism when they had no leverage but their bodies, no power beyond their prayers for an awakened conscience among their persecutors.

I think the real answer here is that Obama was elected via racism: a vast number of white Americans who took great pride in electing a Black man solely because he was/is Black....no matter how unqualified, no matter what is iffy in his past. THAT is racist!

Last time, the Dems had a real fight, thanks to Hillary vs. Obama. WE were stuck with McLame. THIS time, we have a fired up Romney and Obama with a BAD first term. It was soooooooooooooo bad halfway through his first term, that even HE was saying that he would be a '...one term president...'. Let's not kid ourselves. ONE minority group in the USA can not elect a president. There was broad appeal, the first time out. Obama shot himself in the Hillary this time around, and have killed off her chances AND his. Romney/Ryan will have BETTER support across the board simply because folks can't afford another four years of Obama/Hillary.

If blacks support Obama because he's black, then it follows that whites should support Romney because he's white.
Actually, since Obama is half-black, either half of blacks should support him, or all blacks should half support him. Which?

The real crime here is that the liberal left has been so successful at changing history, most people think Republicans were the slave owners and started the KKK and Jim Crowe and segregation, and a long list of other atrocities the Democrats began and held onto for a couple hundred years.

All of us need to try and re-educate our friends and neighbors and our colleagues at work and wherever about the real historical truth of who it was that has a history of grinding people under their heel for so long. Their attempt at rewriting history is successful because we keep silent about it.

I am white and I voted for Obama because I felt that it would help the USA to have a minority
President. We voted fro him, wanted to support him, were happy that a minority individual finally made President, and he proved out faith was misguided. Therefore, this Nov I will vote for Mr Romney.

A snowstorm in the South is about as rare as a glass of unsweetened tea at a church supper. Folks around Birmingham, Ala. weren’t all that worried though. The storm was only supposed to dust the city – not even enough powder for a Southern snowman. But a good number of those stranded motorists were able to find shelter in the storm thanks to the kindness and generosity of Chick-fil-A restaurant employees and the restaurant´s owner, Mark Meadows.

Record High in U.S. Say
Big Government Greatest Threat
Gallup Politics, by Jeffrey M. Jones    Original Article
Posted By: STLstudent- 12/18/2013 6:16:55 PM     Post Reply
Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000. Big government has always topped big business and big labor, including in the initial asking in 1965, but just 35% named it at that time. The latest update comes from a Dec. 5-8 poll. Gallup has documented a steady increase in concern about big government since 2009, rising from 55% in March 2009 to 64% in November 2011 and 72% today.

Barack Obama´s foreign policy dream -- cordial relations with a Middle East tranquilized by "smart diplomacy" -- is in a death grapple with reality. His rhetorical writhings illustrate the perils of loquacity. He has a glutton´s rather than a gourmet´s appetite for his own rhetorical cuisine, and has talked America to the precipice of a fourth military intervention in the crescent that extends from Libya to Afghanistan. Characterizing the 2011 Libyan project with weirdly passive syntax ("It is our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions"),

Pope Francis has attacked the “dictatorship” of the global financial system and warned that the “cult of money” was making life a misery for millions. He said free-market capitalism had created a “tyranny” and that human beings were being judged purely by their ability to consume goods. Money should be made to “serve” people, not to “rule” them, he said, calling for a more ethical financial system and curbs on financial speculation. Countries should impose more control over their economies and not allow “absolute autonomy”, in order to provide “for the common good”.

The yardstick used in the immigration bill to determine border control may produce too rosy a picture of how well the Border Patrol is doing in cracking down on illegal crossings, according to an independent study released Monday that threatens to upend the immigration debate. In their 76-page report, three researchers at the Council on Foreign Relations also said the drop in illegal immigration is only partly a result of tougher border security and about two-thirds because of economic changes in Mexico and the U.S. that have made it less attractive for Mexicans to migrate north.

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Jonathan Papelbon says that the president is out to take your guns. The pitcher, who came to prominence during his run with the Boston Red Sox (including as the team’s closer during their victorious 2007 World Series run), spoke with CSN Philadelphia and said, “Today’s day and age has gotten so crazy. Shoot man, Obama wants to take our guns from us and everything. You got all this stuff going on; it’s just a little bit insane for me, man. I’m not sure how to take it.”

As we now move into the official Political Aftermath period of the Boston bombing — the period that will determine the long-term legislative fallout of the atrocity — the dynamics of privilege will undoubtedly influence the nation’s collective reaction to the attacks. That’s because privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
