    There's a maxim: Success has a 1000 fathers; failure is an orphan. What it speaks to is what's well understood in human psychology: attribution-error bias. In short, we tend to think our success is entirely of our own making, and thus under-attribute environment's contribution. Conversely, when dealing with failure, we blame environment and under attribute effort's (lack of) roll. For example, most businesses fail due to being ill-conceived and poorly managed. How many failed businesses attribute their failure to that cause? 1? 0? The environment is blamed: regulations that apply to all businesses, even successful ones. Employees, which all businesses hire, even successful ones. Taxes which all businesses pay, even successful ones.

    Back to the children of Affirmative Action: they completed college. They got a great job. They're better than other Blacks, and do not need the help being offered the less enabled. They fail to see how it, the environmental effect, is what contributed to their own success. In fact, they might rail against it, since recognizing its positive effect would force them to accept how they too were helped.

    And of course Abortion too, can have an effect on voting. And many Blacks are Christians, some of whom are Christian Conservatives/Pro Life. So no Black Person is captive of the Democrats. It's only most who are loyal to the party that supports issues they consider important.

    And with the coalition of other Minorities, along with White Liberals, in national elections (President) Dems are now nearly unbeatable. Short of nominating Jeffrey Dahmer, we win in a walk, for President, due to a changing racial makeup in the voter population. Bush 43 won by very narrow margins. First time with some ballot serendipity in FL and less than Gore in the national vote total; second time with the nation frightened of terrorism, when folks rally behind our leader (Oklahoma City rescued Clinton from the Lewinsky Scandal) ... and time has marched on since then, getting even worse for the GOP, nationally. Until there's a paradigm-shift in how minorities perceive the GOP, Dems will occupy the White House unabated.

    Simply the truth.

    I was wondering the same thing ... So I asked them ...

    if we're talking about blacks, not 25%, so let's discuss the 10-15% that don't ... I suspect some, if not many, of them are business people or people with a lot of money who don't want to pay taxes, so they vote GOP ... Others have believed the lie ... the lie perpetrated in this country for many, many years that blacks are lazy and worthless ... a form of self hate .... some because they're homophobic or are anti-choice on abortion ... there are many reasons ... don't forget, blacks are not all that different from other groups in the sense that they vote or not vote for someone for a vareity of reasons ... some voters, black and white, for example are one-issue voters (e.g. gay marriage - Dems want it, GOP does not, they'll vote GOP) ... Does this help? Apparently, Dems' policies and positions are more in line with what most blacks believe or want ... and, yes, there are some that vote on the basis of race (but so do some whites) and others because their parents and grandparents voted Dem (but that's true of whites as well) ... Why did almost 60% of whites vote for Romney? Why did only about 37-38% of whites vote for Obama? Were they being racist? Maybe they're smarter voters than blacks and recognized Romney was the best choice? What do you think?

    that's awful and I wish that the President had done more on that front, but, ironically, being black has tied his hands to some degree -- interesting how racism works, huh? He has to worry about being perceived as caring only about blacks and in order to avoid that perception, he does less on that front than a white dem president might have done. But if you're suggesting that the GOP would have done better, you're going to be laughed at by most reasonable and knowledgeable people ... when the economy goes south, the people most hurt are the people on the bottom and blacks are disproportionately at the bottom, so they're hurt disproportionately ... this is sociology 101 my friend ... but we as a society, both the GOP and Dems, don't spend too much time worrying about the poor, do we? the GOP especially takes a social darwinist approach -- if they're poor, they're the less fit and deserve to be there ...

    No; the children of Affirmative Action parents, and not "babies," who obviously, much like you, cannot form opinions, quite yet, on race and economic factors in American society.

    Depends. What about? Also, which online escrow site might we use to hold the cash pursuant to outcome?
