    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?

    Yeah but I realize most people aren't nearly as well informed as I am (or most of those on this board for that matter. far it, people interested enough in politics to spend time debating it on line are hard core when it comes to knowledge compared to the average voter who is more likely to be able to tell you who the last two AMERICAN IDOL finalists were than the two senators from their home state)

    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.
    I agree totally

    when Ken Blackwell (R) ran against Appalachian White Ted Strickland (D) for Governor in Ohio, most of the blacks voted for the white guy over the conservative Black

    No I think most blacks vote for him because he's a democrat. Being black is just an added bonus that strengthens black voter turn out.

    Most blacks weren't interviewed....some were. And the only ones that were featured, were idiots. He's sensationalizing for the sake of ratings.

    Bingo. Blacks vote for Obama because he's a Democrat. They are excited about voting for him because he's black.

    Not Harry Ried. Lol. The same can be said of Allen West in support of Obama.

    Great thread. It's helping to bring about better understanding and clearing up big misconceptions.

    I beg to differ. Most blacks have vorted democrat since alliances were forged between the remnant civil rights leadership and north eastern democrats who helped them transition into new roles as democrat elected officials. Entitlements may have played a small role but the real factor was stick together teamism. Black voters were not going to vote against the same people who marched for their right to vote, were beaten and otherwise abused for their rights to be recognized as equally American. A powerful tradition set in and today most black voters equate voting democrat with patriotism. This not because if entitements but because of love of country. I understand it might be difficult to relate to without having an American heritage from that black perspective. A similar dynamic us now being solidified among Latino voters, possibly even a stronger association with the democrats and American patriotism because in their case the GOP has been portrayed as the enemy of the Hispanic population ala Arizona immigration law, tye southern border fence, etc.

    Re: Do you think most Blacks vote for Obama just because he black?

    Most (with the operative word 'most' meaning at least 51%) PEOPLE dont know who, why, or what the **** they are voting for. MOST people reacted to the ChikFilA incident based soleley on kneejerk responses. MOST people vote for party over a candidate and MOST people couldnt tell you who they supported or why. MOST people believe in 12 second sound bites and dont bother to read what it is they are actually being sold as in the health care legislation. MOST people support their rewpublican or democrat candidates based on the letter in front of their name and couldnt give a damn about the candidate. To the OP...do I believe that blacks are no different than 'MOST' people? I believe 'MOST' blacks support the democrat candidate because thats that they have been led to believe they are supposed to do. Do I believe that Obama being black helps? Hell yes, and anyone that doesnt is naive or an intentional liar. Im not going to bother posting the COUNTLESS videos and audio samplings that indicate the same. Im not going to bather posting Samuel L Jacksons comments or Jay Zs comments. Hell...at least they are honest.

    I hadn't thought much about this before I read this poll and some posts like cpwill's. I thought about myself and two candidates that I judged were exactly equal, hypothetical I know, but one is 'black' and the other is 'white'. I'd vote for the black one because he is black. Oh gosh, a white man voting for a black candidate because of race.
