So, read the news paper today in my surrounding areas, (Okeechobee County and Palm Beach County and surrounding areas) and it appears the majority of local commissioners, mayors, county senators, etc, that have campaigned and elected are black, but the counties in which they reside in, especially Palm Beach, has about 1.5 million whites while there are about 260,000 blacks. So this notion that American whites are racist towards blacks seems very misconstrued.

How is it that there seems to a high amount of black political leaders in major cities when they make up only 13-16 percent of the demographics? They aren't even the second most dominated race in America anymore, they come behind the number 2 which is the Hispanic populations. So, just curious how they are able to rise so fast in the political world. Is it affirmative action that is doing it's job, or should we finally admit that white people are not these racist devils that the MSM and Hollywood like to say they are.

And, what will be the climate when Hispanics finally outnumber whites?

Because guilty racist white Democrats believe that electing black politicians is a form of reparations.

You could literally do that if even 50.1% of the voters were not racist.

Basing a blanket statement on demographics in two Florida counties. Priceless.

For everything else, there is Visa Master Race-Baiting Card.

Interesting thing, I went to a dinner this evening that was celebrating the newly elected black leaders of the community, which is what inspired this post. Most of the evening was very nice, but when the newly elected mayor of Palm Beach came on the stage to talk about his plans, he was booed by a large majority of the black patrons at the dinner. They were shouting how he was not welcomed there, he was an uncle tom and coon. I was very confused by the whole ordeal, so I asked the gentleman who brought me as a guest what the deal was, and he says it's because the new mayor supports the police and plans on cracking down on the drugs and gangs in the area, and some black people in the community are being brainwashed to go against the cops and anyone who supports them.

Cool story Bro...wikipedia says 73% white...sounds like a majority outside of TDS delusions.

When East St. Louis and south Africa starts electing white officials, I'll believe blacks aren't any more racist than whites.

If you know ANYTHING about proper sources you will know Census > Wiki. Forgive me Whites, not Hispanics included, are the majority by 4.8%. Comprehension counts!
