    No. Kerry won 88% of the black vote, so definitely not most. I'm sure there are some people who'd vote for him because he's black, and I'm sure there are people who'd vote against him because he's black, but I'm not sure which group is bigger.

    Perhaps it's because they agree with the Democrats on the issues more. Or perhaps it's because the Republicans totally alienate them via moronic race-baiting like this thread.

    How you explain about the way blacks answered the questions on Obama's policies? It showed they knew nothing about Obama's stand on these issues and they voted for him any way?

    why would you ask such a question?

    My black friends vote for him because they are Democrats who support what he is selling...they voted for Clinton on the same reasoning...and Kerry in '04.

    Race isn't the issue...the policies are

    There were numerous videos out right after Obama was elected questioning his supporters, white and black, why they voted for him. The majority were ignorant of his actual positions. The American media and entertainment industries are responsible for this.

    The black community probably will vote for Obama because he is a Democrat not because he is black. However if you had two democrats running for office, one non black and also Obama, then I do believe you would find many that would vote for him based on skin color. However I think this is a natural reaction in many people and in any race. If you know little about a person your first reaction is to prefer someone who appears to be most like you.

    Its nice to see White people are colorblind on this issue and its sad that most blacks are not.

    What? There's a lot missing there. According to your OP, race was never a factor. Also, there's a notable lack of citation.

    Of course that's why. That's also why there was a huge bi-partisan movement by black voters to support Herman Cain.

    I'm not going to argue that some black folks are voting for him because of his race..that has been clearly stated...I'm saying that a majority are voting for him because of his policies that they have supported over the years from Clinton to Kerry to now Obama
