    That sums it up pretty good.

    And I'm fine with it doing that, if it can be done in a way that doesn't disenfranchise people.

    That the issues important to them are not the issues important to Blacks. That would include health care reform, affirmative action, more government programs for the poor and disadvantaged, womens rights, labor and working conditions, and support for public education. In addition, people know when they are not liked or wanted and that comes across in big fat capital letters. The swing of the Republicans to the right has pretty much killed the days when noted people like Jackie Robinson, Wilt Chamberlain, James Brown and Sammy Davis Jr. endorsed GOP presidential candidates. You may as well be talking about the days of Lincoln and Reconstruction.

    Turn on the GOP convention on TV and its a sea of white faces looking more like a bowl of rice with a small sprinkling of pepper now and then. Then turn on the Democratic convention and see the difference. The make-up of the members of the party sends a big message.

    But does the govt have a duty to ensure that the Constitution is dutifully enforced or does it have a duty to ensure people aren't disenfranchised?

    Actually, there's a growing number of young black Americans, me included that have realized that Democratic policies hurt black families. For that reason, among others, we are gradually turning away from the DNC. Furthermore, nothing that you listed, other than affirmative action (which is a racist policy) is specific to blacks.

    Ok. Where in the constitution does it spell out the duty for the executive branch to guard against disenfranchisement?
