Most Blacks may vote democratic, but they're mostly socially conservative (but fiscally liberal), so that is a pointless strawman that you're bringing up, since that has nothing to do with whether or not a city is liberal or conservative. Last time I checked, there's quite a few liberal cities (that are both socially and fiscally liberal) such as San Francisco, Seattle, Boulder, or Portland that are liberal and do not have large black populations.

You already know the answer to this...or was this just an excuse for you to complain about "the blacks" again?

People are so obsessed with black people and their politics. Last year's election was so obssessed on how black people are going to vote. Not every black person thinks collectively. The mainstream media makes you think every black person is poor, a democrat or in love with Obama. That is driving force behind hyperpolitical landscape we are in today.

But are those cities truly liberal? San Francisco definitely is along with Seattle. But Portland and Boulder are the opposite extreme of what youre talking about. They arent racially progressive at all. But they are exactly what white people think of when the term "liberal" is used.

Okay?! So damn obsessed with everything us awful negroes do or think all the time...we're so hated by a lot of these stormfront members who post here, and yet they can't keep us out of their thoughts and discussions.

I never said anything about racial progress. I was saying those cities are typically socially liberal, but that doesn't always mean that they're going to be 100% liberal on every single thing. A lot of liberal cities are NOT black-friendly at all, but they may be liberal on other issues. I certaintly don't think Portland and Boulder are socially conservative, and I doubt you think that too. However, I do agree that they are what a lot of white people think of when it comes to "liberal" cities. I'll throw Austin in there too, though it's a far more diverse city than PDX or Boulder.

I would think many people of all races would think of those cities as 'liberal cities'.

Blacks are socially conservative? I don't know that I agree with that or not. Besides a high percentage who attend church on a regular basis, in what other ways generally socially conservative?

Why do you say I was "complaining about the blacks" ? I wasn't complaining about anybody. The point I was wanting to make is the Republican party seems like its about 85 to 90% white; and the Democrat party I would estimate about 55% white and the remainder blacks, Asians, Hispanics, and other minorities. I would estimate at least 90% of blacks who vote, will vote for the Democrat.

I dont have any issues with black people, or any people for that matter. I like anybody who likes me. I can't help it. If somebody is nice to me, I'm nice to them. I don't care what color they are. It's the individual that's importanr, not the race.

There is no correlation between political ideology and education.

I think the other night the Democrat did better in the poorest part of the district, northern Dekalb County.

Call me weird but I like living either in a conservative city of a liberal region or a liberal city in a conservative region.

Trends I see in Liberal/Conservative cities (not all apply in all cases):

Liberal Cities:

- More nightlife

- More organic stores

- More green-friendly technology

Conservative Cities:

- More pick-up trucks

- More churches

- More sports

I never realized nightlife is about liberalism, or politics at all.

Wrong......

"Highly educated adults – particularly those who have attended graduate school – are far more likely than those with less education to take predominantly liberal positions across a range of political values. And these differences have increased over the past two decades."
