    well LBJ bragged about securing the "n er" vote for the dems for centuries.

    but the New Deal and its creation of dependency was the main reason. remember many dems from the south tried to block the CRA of 64

    And IF it is wrong that a large majority of blacks happen to vote for Obama, is it also wrong that a large majority of Mormons support Romney?

    I think the main issue is that blacks have blindly supported the dems for decades even if the dems do not represent the best interests of a large number of blacks

    its bad for the blacks because when someone is easily seduced the seducer doesn't have to keep promises to them

    and what will be interesting is watching the conflict between established black interests and rising hispanic interests as two of the major segments of the DNC's coalition of special interest groups. Conflict is already happening when Dems choose a black politician as a nominee in areas where hispanics have displaced blacks as the major minority beholden to the dems

    Right, which is why the Southern Democrats of the time jumped ship and went to the Republican Party (I don't mean to get into the Democrats are the old Republicans debate).

    But, I was always under the impression that the Civil Rights Act is what really caused the black vote going to the Democrats.

    Right. But, my point was that how blacks vote has more to do with whether or not the candidate is Democrat or Republican. Meaning, blacks aren't voting for Obama just because he's black, but because he's a Democrat.

    Wouldn't you agree?

    I think I posted my views earlier

    If Obama were white he would have obtained a huge percentage of the black vote just as Gore and Kerry did

    HOWEVER his race did cause lots of first time black voters to appear

    I wonder if every Mormon in the country will vote for Romney just because he is Mormon?

    3) however, the fact that he was black caused many more blacks who had not voted in the past to show up and vote. we saw that when a 10 term congressman lost for the first time in Cincinnati (Steve Chabot). Blacks voted dem at almost the same percentages as they had in 2006 (lock step welfare socialist) but lots of new black voters gave Steve Driehaus (who claimed to have about the same agenda as Chabot). when Obama was not on the ticket in 2010, Chabot easily won though blacks voted welfare socialist at the same high numbers. Far less of them showed up.
    Here is my position on this thread's question

    I agree.

    Now my next question: Can you really blame someone who voted for Obama mostly just because he's black, at least for the first go around?

    Most blacks vote for Obama because he is a Democrat. The fact that Obama is black may very well be responsible for more blacks actually showing up to the polls, however.

    If the Republican nominee were black and the Democrat were white, I don't for one second think most blacks would vote for the Republican.
