^In addition, even if those who came here illegally were deported at once, I don't really think it would drastically change the employment situation for Blacks, at least not with the expedience I would like to see. There are still issues of job discrimination taking place. As more things change, many things remain the same. The election of President Obama didn't mean an end to racial discrimination. It still takes place.

The jokes on you!

I knew this would turn into a "lets bash Black people" thing. I should have known. Even when Black people protest against the President, there are those who want to turn this into "Black people are full of it". When Blacks vote Democrat, people complain about them. When Black people protest illegal immigration and President Obama, still more complaints about Black people. When some Black people voted Republican, still more complaints. No one seems satisfied. For those that keep complaining, what do you want?

No one thought he would be the same until later on.

The difference between Democrats and Republicans is this, at this time. Republicans don't care either way, and don't pretend. Democrats pretend when its election time. The question is this. Who do Blacks turn to now?

Perhaps Blacks vote for "more of the same" because there is little to know trust for Republicans, and basically, who does one turn to?
But this still does not make sense to me, voting the same ignorant stupid party in time and time again. When they are noted for lying their butt's off until they are elected. And don't live up to their promises, is just stupid.

Why allow a party to use you in this way, because that is exactly what they are doing. I wish this first Black President, lived up to everything he promised. And was truly different, but I find him worse, with his blame games, and never knowing a darn thing, looking into the matter.

Well yes we have now had our first Black President, and no he was not different in any other way, perhaps worse, because he seems to think he is put on a pedestal. And people, and media have led him to believe this.

Why allow a party to use people? What does the other party have to offer? I get why many Blacks keep voting for Democrats. Lack of trust for Republicans. I've said it over and over. Maybe this is why I don't criticize people for it. I look at it like this. Democrats take people for granted, Republicans just don't care either way. What do you do next?

Truth is, many people are used to politicians lying, so no one is shocked anymore.

"Black residents of Chicagoís South Side, who recently rallied to decry a spate of violence in the city, ripped President Obama for ignoring their plight while pushing for funding for illegal immigrants at their expense. Demonstrators blasted the Obama administrationís inaction in Chicago while federal funds are earmarked to help the roughly 50,000 illegal immigrants who have crossed into America since October."

So, what's the GOP doing to attract these so-called, disenchanted voters? I mean, besides complaining about them that is

When it comes to the Black vote, Democrats have taken it for granted, and Republicans basically have a "let them eat cake" mentality when it comes to the Black vote. I'm convinced neither party really cares at all. One pretends to care, the other doesn't. It leaves this question: Who to turn to?
Well if it is obvious that you will vote for Democrats no matter what they say or do then Democrats will take your vote for granted and won't work for you and Republicans will feel that you won't listen to them anyway, you've already made up your mind. You shouldn't be so transparent and should make democrats work for your vote.

So you want them to beg you? You've made up your mind anyway.
