I have said this before. If the Republican Party is so concerned about the way Blacks vote, then the Republican Party should come up with a plan that attracts more Black voters. It should have more moderate candidates and not candidates who say stupid things(such as comments from Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich). It must purge the Tea Party from its ranks.

Maybe so...

But on the real...if you don't kiss me at night or sign my paycheck, I don't sweat it. I'll get outta your way and you damn sure had better stay outta mine.

I respect you, you respect me. That's all that matters. As long as you keep the racist stuff to yourself, it's all good.

I wish everyone were that way.

Given the constituency that repeatedly elects Maxine Waters as Representative, I could tend to agree with the conservative view. At least in consideration of that particular district. I could probably feel fairly confident in a wager that those voters for Waters would have also voted for Obama.
Not just her. How about the idiot that said an island would tip over if it had to many people on it. Time after time, dopes (not just black people) elect absolute morons and people who dont even like this country.

You're right on that too. Just about any retard that voted for Obama would most likely vote for Waters as well. Or Reid, whom just used todays accident in Nevada that killed Marines to push his agenda and whine about sequester.

I'm not going to even talk about the fact that you think all people who voted for Obama are "idiots". However, I am going to talk about this. Blacks are the ones being singled out, even though they make up 13 percent of all of the voters. People are complaining about Blacks in particular. Think about the title of this thread.

They may be singled out because there probably are a lot of them that wouldve stayed at home if Obama wasnt black. Worth mentioning also is that we've heard many say theyve voted for him just because he is black.

Lol. They are singled out because they are black. The majority of them would have still come out to vote even if Barack was not black. To the tune of 90 some percent. I think it would be worth mentioning that you need to back up that statement that many voted for him because he was black. I'm gonna need numbers.

If you had been reading my other posts, and some of the calculations I've made, only a small percentage of Black voters voted for President Obama based on race. And what about the White voters who voted for Romney and McCain because they did not want a Black president?

And consider this, Blacks have been voting Democrat in large numbers for a very long time. Blacks voting for Republicans have been very small in numbers since the 1960s and have remained that way.

The question you need to ask is this question: Why don't Blacks vote for Republicans in large numbers compared to other groups?

If people were truly concerned about Blacks voting for Democrats, or President Obama, then the Republican Party should have come up with better ways to get more Black voters. What Santorum, Romney, and Gingrich said basically alienated Blacks. And with some conservatives singling out Blacks and calling them "dumb" for voting for President Obama, that will continue to alienate Black voters. If conservatives are truly concerned, then they would not say things like "Black voters are dumb for voting for President Obama". Considering that some conservatives are saying those things, they aren't concerned at all. It is a matter of "We're mad that we lost the election and we blame Blacks for it".

Anyone who claims that all Black voters voted for President Obama because he was black hasn't proven it with numbers.

I will put this to numbers. I've done it before, and I will do it again. 24 million Black voters in 2004. 26 million Black voters in 2008. An increase of 2 million more voters. This would be that at most, 2 million voted for President Obama because he was Black. However, that still leaves 24 million who voted for him because they vote Democrat.

And something else to consider. Since 1964, the candidate who has won the highest percentage of the Black vote was Hubert H. Humphrey, with 97 percent. http://www.thomsonedu.com/politicals...ct_1_final.pdf

Have you considered that the ones who speak the loudest get the most attention?

We have had some blacks publicly state they voted for him due to color. And I get it that blacks, when they do vote, will vote for a Democrat more often than not. And to be honest, that is their problem. It is partially a messaging problem by the GOP in actually getting the message out, but a large part of it is if some of these people cant see what they are getting by voting for liberalism, then what can you do? You want to be a prop for the Democratic Party and be bought with this and that and treated like you are victims, that is your problem.

And I dont blame blacks for Obama being elected. I dont know who does. I blame plenty of people/groups. For one, I blame the losers in our society who care more about a pop culture icon than anything else, making it all out to be a popularity contest. I blame my party which needs to boot out the establishment and run on Conservatism for once. I blame a corrupt and lying media who bends over backwards for liberals, and especially Obama. I blame our society, which continues to decline in so many ways. I dont blame black people. But I do blame them for a majority of them continuing to fall in line for Democrats who, quite frankly, dont give one damn about them. Time for the victim nonsense to stop. Time for calling everyone a racist to stop.
