Yes before 1964.

Sure. You can see similiar notions withing many groups, particularly those that have some history of defeat or oppression. Look at older Irish people for an example. But such feelings eventually wither away.

But not quite yet. Hence my first post on this topic.

Without reading the rest of the posts, I'll say this:

Most African Americans support the Democratic Party.
Obama is the Democratic party candidate in the WH. He will automatically get the support of the African American community.

Now, when he was up against Hillary Clinton, Black support was divided.

if Obama is clearly useless as he is...why would you want another 4 years of it? Certainly it can't be because he is black. I am sure you are beyond such stupidity as that.

Why not Herman Cain? Why not someone who has a plan at least where Obama has nothing other than throwing more stimulus money at a problem that needs fixing from the INSIDE??

I urge you...as a fellow voter and as a fellow American...to reconsider your position.

Thanks for the Monday morning laughs.

It's good that you understand, as most don't seem to.

By the way, I wasn't referring to you directly in that first post of mine that you replied to
