Liberals HAVE to target their to their voters and do so breaking it down by race, sex, who they have sex with. The key is they need to make these people believe they are victims. Liberalism NEEDS victims to succeed, or actually they need people who believe they are victims

You dumb libs keep repeating the lie that non-liberals are racist all you want, but it doesnt make it true. Just like your stupid lie of the war on women.
As I said, if whites could choose between black candidates ONLY. I guess many whites would feel they are not represented somehow and thus ignore that entire circus.
Of course you are the great exception, sorry I did not mention that
Plus, smug filthy rich candidates are probably not very popular with people who are disproportionately affected by poverty

Oh I agree most blacks are lazy and ignorant when it comes to knowing what is going on in government.

But no more lazy and ignorant than your average white middle class to poor voter that supports the GOP or the Libertarian party.

You're highest IQ voters Asians, Jews, Scientists, etc. are reliable liberal voters.

African-American Vote in GOP Race Falls Below Measurable Levels | The Nation
No biggie.

They're so much better today, you know since 0b0mba is POTUS.

We conservative minded constitutionalists will continue to reign supreme, while their communities continue to be slums.

I'm cool with that! You get the government you deserve.

As much as I dont like all of them being rich, nearly all of them are. And I guess its not always their wealth really that even bothers me. It is more how money is so involved in the campaign process. But thats a different subject.

So, they think that not being able to force the kids at the local school to pray to THEIR God is discrimination. Um, no.
It's truly a mind-boggling level of delusion, isn't it? What's always intrigued me the most about many of the people with this mindset is that they are often the exurban or rural people who have the least amount of exposure to the main people they are complaining about in the first place: people of color, gay people, secularists, etc. So it makes it readily apparent that their "persecution complex" is really nothing more than deeply-seeded xenophobia. Many of the Republican political figures should be ashamed of themselves for continuously fanning the flames of irrational fear just to get votes. I do think some of the Republican leadership is beginning to understand that they are losing these "culture wars" and need to move the party into to the 21st Century. Meanwhile, I genuinely feel bad for my more moderate, fiscal conservative friends who don't really want to be aligned with some of the loonies that the party seems to like to appease.

I absolutely agree with you here as well. There are plenty of Black people like my dad who are actually social conservatives and would vote for the GOP if there wasn't that slight hint of racism permeating so many of the things coming out of some of the GOP leaders' mouths. They seem completely out of touch when it comes to reaching out to people of color.

That's the problem with always giving your vote to certain party regardless of how bad they are.

The treat you like a chump if they know you will not withhold your support.

The "Tea Party" on the other hand will come out against their own GOP candidates. That's why they are feared. That's why they have more influence than their numbers would suggest.

GOP candidates fear their base. Dem candidates despise and ignore their base.
I've said the same thing around here before. Why buy the cow when you get the milk for free? And with a much larger latino vote out there that grows each year and will vote for either party....the black vote is even further marginalized. Now I'm not saying they should vote GOP, frankly NO ONE should just vote for a party IMO but I'm just pointing out how black interests are really between a rock and a hard place in national elections.

Will those be the same black people who voted for Obama because "he's black"? Those must be the same black people who are entirely ignorant of their chosen party's racist history. They must really love living off the plantation of the democratic party.

There are blacks who vote democrat for the only reason that they believe that republicans are racist.

Nevermind there's the Libertarian party, the Independent party, the Green party, etc.

I wish black people would read about other party options instead of ingesting the same garbage year after year that the democrats feed them.

They're only showing how ignorant they are.
Bingo. While the usual suspects are so focused on the GOP being "racist". How come black people can't consider other parties? I think it has to do with intellectual laziness for the vast majority of Black people. In my view there is a correlation between the subpar academic achievements of many Blacks and the fact over 95% continue to vote for the same party which in the last 50 years has done nothing but make their cities unfit for human habitation.

The brain power simply is not there for most Blacks to consider anything but what their Dem masters say.

Excellent post and I've made this point before. Again many Blacks lack the intellectual capacity to see that by voting for the Dems automatically year in and year out they have essentially ceded their political power. Form another party, do something besides giving your vote away.
