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?
    It's all about name calling. It's all you people have.

    That's it? I gave you a well thought out answer that you can dispute if you disagree, and in response you give me this? You asked me a question, I answered it in good faith. Why didn't you respond?

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 ...
    You can't destroy the economy and expect unemployment to go down.

    I didn't call you Uncle Tom. I called you Tom. And even then in jest to show how silly your post was .... but you believe what you want to believe APDST. But remember, the reason for conversations is to consider other perspectives ...

    Your well thought answet was nothing more than criticising black business owners--the greedy private sector--and calling black folks homophobes.

    There's nothing well thought about your post. It's nothong more than regurgitation of decades old Left Wing talking points.

    again, you're not responding to what I wrote ... I agree, you can't destroy the economy and expect unemployment to go down (even though it has despite the GOP's best efforts to drive it up by opposing the president on virtually everything because of who he is - Why doesn't that bother you? That could've been you or your son or daughter ...) - but who was it that almost destroyed the economy? BTW, where does your disdain for this president come from ... your posts drip of it ...

    you are a piece of work ... my God ... are you saying that whites are the only ones opposed to higher taxes or oppose gay marriage?

    I'm wasting my time with you, aren't I? Please be honest with me.

    Precisely. And since unemployment has indeed gone down, Cons who say Obama has destroyed the economy have to be foolish, delusional or both.
