All post apocalyptic zombie movies and shows should be set in Detroit.
It looks perfect just the way it is.

The book Rising Tide (I believe it's mentioned in your link) is a good book that points out a lot of this stuff...poor blacks were treated terrible and the rest of the country witnessed this.

Because Blacks had no clue about their social/legal status before the Great Flood? And this event also scarred the millions of Blacks not effected by the dislocation and adversity?
And Blacks were so impressed by the progressive attitude of Southern Democrats in this period?

FYI Moton wasn't a historian he was a contemporary Black educator and "race leader".

re: How did Republicans lose African-Americans?


as far as blacks go in the minority loop, they dont really matter.
They dont elect anybody.
13% of the population and maybe half that actually go vote.

They vote anti-rich whitey more than pro black anything.,.. other than the fact that barry is half and half.

Asians love free stuff


Everybody loves free stuff!

It's the wise ones among us who understand that its not really free and that constant giveaways are not sustainable in the long term.

Once the cut-off occurs (and it eventually will) the withdrawal is a nightmare and usually results in riots, death on a large scale, and of course property destruction. If it's especially bad, a strongman dictator could arise and wind up with the almost god-like authority of life or death to whomever is left under his control.

Sadly, the liberal-democrat (and rino) pushers understand their junkies (and the dark side of human nature) all too well. They are more than willing to exploit it for their own personal gain and power. The only answer the other side can offer is hard work and self discipline, but that old white man stuff is no fun! We all know the pattern. The junkie will not clean up until after he hits rock bottom. I'm afraid that the die is cast.

What is the self-evident truth of which you write?

People don't vote solely on economic interests as many folks on this board seem to believe. Birtherism offends Blacks across the entire socio-economic sprectrum. The Southern Strategy (eg. Willie Horton ad) turned off Blacks across the entire socio-economic spectrum. Bobby Jindal said it best last week:

"If we want people to like us, we have to like them first. You don't start to like people by insulting them by saying their votes were bought."

When that Repiblican politician said of Nikki Haley, "We already have one raghead in the White House, we don't need another one in the governor's mansion", Asians across a broad spectrum of ethnicities were alarmed. Why do you think Obama got 75% of their votes?

I love how you bring up that 100% of Southern Republicans voted against the bill but leave out the fact that there was only *one* Southern Republican in the Senate.

You think so? If Romney had gotten Ike's share of the Black vote, he would have won in an electoral landslide. Do the math. By the way, we're only 11.6% of the population but we have accounted for 13% of the votes in the last two Presidential elections.

The better question is why haven't Democrats lost all Caucasian-Americans? You listen to their leaders and pundits and they make it perfectly clear they don't like white people.

Assuming that was of any consequence, how does it explain Black voting behavior in every other election of the past 4 decades besides one including the Kenyan?

Did they hold Gore responsible for Willy Horton? He first brought it up? Do Blacks really think week end passes for violent lifers is a good idea?

Bobby Jindal said it best last week:


Bobby Jindal is just like JC Watts or Colin Powell or George Wallace or John Kennedy, or Nancy pelosi, they say what is in their perceived political and financial interests.

Every time a Negro says something dumb is the nation alarmed? Does he or she speak for the entire party for the race?

Probably a variety of reasons. Asians love Negroes and want to embrace their culture?

Why did I need to mention that? I said that 100% of southern Republicans in Congress voted against the CRA. I didn't break it down by the House and the Senate. There were 11 southern Republicans in Cingress and all voted against it, as well as 95% oo southern Democrats. That's a fact.

damn near 90% of the posters on here don't understand the black community and the reason why most vote democractically.


People on here thinks it's b/c of some free handouts from the gov't but that is way far from the truth. Y'all really need to stop watching Fox News and believe what they broadcast on TV. Get out and mingle with "black" folks and you will clearly see why they vote democratically.


Until they can explain why Jewish Americans voted 90% for LBJ & 90% (FDR) they are cowards just like O'Reilly,Limbaugh,etc.....




Must hurt the bigots even more to know that Black vote was the difference in Ohio, Pennsylvania,Florida & Virginia(North Carolina last cycle)



These same bigots disappear when the Southern Strategy is explained & how Southern White vote nearly switched overnight in 1964(Civil Rights Act) Black vote changed near simultaneously.

They've learned well from FOX News to be wary of dismissing the Jewish vote who historically vote Democrat more loyal than any group.

What percentage of votes were blacks in presidential elections prior to 2008?

The Civil Rights Act was called for by a Northern Democratic President(JFK) before he died, drafted in Congress by Northern Democrats(Emanuel Celler of NY) & past ironically by a Southern Democrat(LBJ).

And percentage wise not including Southern bigots was easily a Democratic voted legislation.

They are still butthurt over a Black President & the importance of the Black vote in winning Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia,Florida,North Carolina.


You see how casually these cowards can whine about the Black vote , but go silent on The Jewish vote?


This one has really got them upset doesn't it?

re: How did Republicans lose African-Americans?


I really don't know what factors most drove blacks into Democratic arms.

I do know what keeps them there.

The party that keeps promising them free shite and telling them that anyone that wants to stop the free shite is racist wins their vote.

Secondarily, they have successfully painted any black person who does not toe the line as not "authentically black" or as an "uncle Tom".

Blacks as a CULTURE have become a pathetic leech culture in America and while they quite obviously can sway elections, all their stats will continue to be shitty and get worse.

They will continue to have single mom babies at an amazing rate. They will continue to be dumb as fricking stones in school and not value education. And on and on.

Sure. They'll maintain their handouts while living on the largesse of those who produce. And, they'll continue to think that's "progress".

It's actually kind of sad if you think about. Blacks as a culture ASPIRE to be leeches. THey actually count it as some sort of success.

All of the above is why even black people will still always look at the black dude at the Company HQ and think, "token".

Just can't read anything you say until you explain to us why the Jewish Vote went 90% to LBJ & 90% for FDR?

When Fox News dismisses the Jewish vote just as they do Hispanics & Blacks their opinion can be listened to.

Obama got 70 & 80% of the Jewish vote & no one ever gives such disrespectful nonsense as to why Democrats OWN the Jewish vote.

I make no claims to know and I said I'm sure many factors drove blacks in the direction of Dems.

However, while the Jewish vote has been reliably democrat, it has not been reliably over 90% so individuals may have a part in why those votes happened.

The black vote is ABSOLUTELY reliable to be for the Democrat in ANY election at ANY level at a rate greater than 90%.

Until you can show me that Jews do that, you are arguing a non point.

Democrats typically win the Jewish vote. They don't typically get anything close to 90%. THOSE votes are atypical and I would think you know this if you've spent as much time looking at it as you act like you have.
