Alot of Pennsylvania's population blue collar is old so they are from the old generation from the 1950s whens being racist was politically correct.

DEAD WRONG. Racism is giving any preferential treatment based on skin color, race, etc. Blacks can and are just as racist as any other group.

So are the 95% of blacks voting for Obama older and from a time when racism was politically correct? How do you explain their racism in this election?

and who do blacks blame??!!
give me a frigging break!
Obama lost in PA because of his
tactics not because of his skin
he thought he could slink in PA and dazzel everyone
he spent 11 million dollars on TV adds
he is the one that chose a racist church for 20 years
and made comments about typical white people
and said folks are bitter
then when asked about it he gets cocky and mad
how dare he be questioned!
He is just like George W Bush, the same ego that would cause more damage to this country
you need to wake up and come on into the real world
you scream racist, while defending one, only black folks can not be a racist can they??
only white folks
98% of black folks vote for him, but that does not mean they are racist
get real and quit blaming everyone because he screwed up
Obama needs to own his own stuff and quit hiding
he would make a lousy president and I don't think he should even be a senator
he should go home and get a real job

Black people vote for Obama because they identify with him. Thats not racist. Black people arent voting for the black candidate because they are uncomfortable with a white candidate. As others have said before, the 8% of white/hispanic people in Pennsyvania are supporting Hillary strictly because they dont think a black person should be president. There is a difference

If it werent for that 8%, or should I say more because not everyone admits it, it would have put him over the top in Pennslyvania.

Interesting theory. Does the Historic African-American support for the DNC supposition they are racist? Consider this in your answer - they are still supporting a Democrat.

I have proof that people of PA are racists. Look at the last gubenatorial election. Rendell beat Lynn Swann by about 20 percentage points.

Where was the 'racism' cry then? Oh yeah, Swann is a REPUBLICAN. You aren't considered a racist if you don't vote for a black who is a Republican, right?
