    Never should a group of people vote that overwhelmingly one direction.

    No other demographic votes that heavily one direction, not even close. If the black community is so staunchly of one mind, why does it have so many problems? Obviously, selling out in total to the Democratic Party isn't working so well, but the dependence upon government that Dems have created in their minds keeps them from thinking about what they're voting for.
    Well there's the devil you know and the DEVIL!

    With the exception of maybe Florida, no Liberal is going to carry any southern state, black, white, or otherwise.

    Just a few weeks ago, when he claimed that the bridge collapsed due to poor maintanance. He's either stupid, or he lied, because the bridge collapsed due to design flaws.

    Funny. Before any of you weighed in, we all thought that it collapsed due to poor maintenance.

    Oh hey. You're wrong.

    Although if it were a white moderate v. a black conservative, I think you would would see a lot of Southern states flip...which is exactly why the GOP will never nominate a black man or woman.

    Southern states are full of "proud" peeps and they are damn proud of their country right now and most of them are proud of their POTUS. Obama has this. I am not worried at all

    It may be a distant memory but the folks will get a refresher to wake em up from their slumber. Trust me this will be a winning point for Obama

    Okay, but only because you're so cute when you are optimistic.

    It's so obvious. But without it, your party would cease to exist, so there you go.
    There are more whites on welfare than the non-white skinned folks you may hate. Affirmative Action is still very much needed in this country and will be til we end racism and sexism which will be sadly NEVER.

    Forced equality measures? Well the thing is if the haters would stop hating and treat all folks equal maybe we would have no need for "forced" equality. It is sad that in this day and time we still need these mesuares and you can thank your racist, sexist asswipe buddies for this. K?
