    If it was a white guy they would have said exactly the same thing. He is a Democrat, DUH!

    What a dumb ass question.

    can only wonder how many were interviewed but not included in the video because they undermine the message of the video?

    No, you are wrong. You are assuming that the 35% out of the 85% of black people that voted democrat last time did so for the same reasons this time. You can't make that assumption, you don't know.

    yes he can because there are logical facts based on history and reality to make that assumption.

    the opposite cant be said for anybody that falsely thinks most black people voted for obama only because he was black.

    You can't make that assumption... you don't know what their main reason was... even if they would of voted democrat anyway, you don't know if their main reason was because he was black or not.

    LOL
    like I said yes you most certainly can because there are logical facts supported by history and reality to support the assumption

    now I admit its still an assumption but its a very logical one.

    on the other hand however assuming differently is illogical

    not sure what part you dont get

    Last post on this nonsense (argue with yourself if you don't like it) ...

    Percentage of blacks who vote for Democrat presidential candidates:


    1972: 82%
    1976: 83%
    1980: 85%
    1984: 90%
    1988: 86%
    1992: 83%
    1996: 84%
    2000: 90%
    2004: 88%
    2008: 95%

    Exit Polls - Election Results 2008 - The New York Times

    Blacks vote Democrat in big numbers no matter what the skin color of the presidential candidate is. There is nothing to even suggest that trend, which dates back at least 40 years and possibly more but I could only find exit polls going back to 1972, would have been any different in 2008 had Obama not been nominated to run for president.

    I would like to point a few things out.

    First off... black voter turnout increased when Obama ran for office. So the percentages remained in the same area of 90% pro democrat, but the number of people who voted pro-democrat increased when Obama ran for office. So.. yes... race has to play a factor. But in necessarily in how they vote, but rather, in how many vote.

    In 2008: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/21/us...vote.html?_r=0

    Just thought I would add this new dimension to the topic.

    My point is, you can't derive any viable information about this topic from the voting numbers except that race was at least a factor.

    that changes nothing LOL

    it shows now evidence to support that MOST blacks voted for obama only because he was black

    only shows that he rallied the base of his party and independents

    did you know that 41 percent of white men voted for obama?

    Before Obama, no Democrat since Jimmy Carter had earned more than 38 percent of the white male vote. whats that mean? logically nothing besides he rallied his base and independents and americans period.
