I strongly suspect that it's fake and started and run by white people.
Really, what black person calls him/herself Afro American in 2012?

Blacks/Afro-Americans for Mitt Romney

Something for Rachel Maddow to investigate.

I don't know.... Perhaps blacks that realize that black male unemployment is higher than the national average and black teen unemployment is at 55% and then watched Mr Obama grant amnesty via fiat to illegal aliens. You could probably find hispanic "citizens" that feel the same way. I'm sure if you look hard enough though, you can find an even wider brush to paint minorities with.

Maddow needs to investigate blacks for Harry Reid, though.

They are are called "Bootstrap Blacks" They believe since they have overcome and pulled themselves up by their own boot straps that their pigmentation is invisible to white people. There is a national organization called The NABB. They meet once a year in the foyer of a Sambo's while waiting for a table.

There are black conservatives.. you know,, they ones who don't blame whites for everything.. they know who they are and are smart , articulate and realized that. Now they want to live as a republican and it is so hard for the majority of blacks to understand how they don't harbor hate , resentment, and rose above the fray.

I wouldn't put black republicans on such a high pedestal in relation to their counterparts, but I will say that one of the problems in the black community is this expectation that we all have the same political and religious opinions. We hate to be called a "monolithic" group of people but look at the type of responses a black republican gets. I'm a black religious skeptic and I've received my fair share of fury and outcast for not rising to the religious expectations of my family and seemingly the larger community.
