re: AP Story: Do Blacks support Obama b/c he's black?


Like I said in other thread, I can totally understand blacks,he'll not only blacks anyone who voted for Obama 4 yrs ago in hope that he would do as he said. He'll,although I didn't vote for him,deep down I was hopeful he would at least unite us. But after 4 years of his failures(and he had absolute power for two of the 4)if eel no one has the right to either vote for or against him based on mainly his race this time. And if you do or don't on that basis then you should just admit your a racist because the truth is the 1st thing that must come out to set you free.

Sound like the Republicans on here.

Things will never change as long as you keep supporting the status quo.

Things won't change until those 3rd parties start changing their political strategies.

What has happened is that after 400 years of discrimination, whites in just one generation have decided that discrimination no longer exists on their side to any significant extent and are now critical of the people that historically suffered the most discrimination for being late to the post racial party.

I'm not even discussing discrimination. Just voting. And we all have the "right" to vote for whoever we want for whatever reason. If someone doesn't want to vote for Obama because they think that he's a secret Muslim, that's their right. If someone won't vote for Romney because they think that he's a bishop in a religion that still teaches that god has racial preferences, then that's their right as well.

And I thought your "one generation" statement was stupid.

You surely do have the right to vote for whomever you like.if you and all your family and kids or doin great and better that 4 yrs ago vote for your man. My family and I are doin great and will survive and thrive long after Obama is gone ,whether he wins or not. I hope your can do the same. But even under Bush,black male unemployment wasn't near this high and if I were you,instead of listening to a politician,any politician,I'd be listening to what business leaders are saying,even the black co founder of B.ET. Is trying to tell you what to expect under 4 more yrs of Obama. But yes you have a right to vote for anyone for any reason you choose.

I haven't decided who I'm voting for. Maybe neither.

That's fair enough, I've said before that Romney isn't my favorite,but my line of work is hiring people for a private business that employees thousands of hard working blue collar people of all races across America and the world and I can assure you that Romney will be better for our business and thousands of those like ours. And this along with my personal belief in My god is why I'm going to Romney.

The fact that he's 1/2 black is the ONLY reason anyone supports him. He came in unqualified, inept and incompetent. Four years has made him worse. The only reason this complete f*cking moron hasn't been laughed off the political stage is because he's 1/2 black and he has a "D" behind his name.

excuse me but wasn't the whole civil rights movement about judging your fellow man by the content of their character and not the color of their skin?

I guess that was just a line of bull shite so they could get equal rights.

Yeah bull shite that you expect a whole race to just get over being treated like shite for centuries because you say so.
