Blacks are like the social conservatives the parties they choose to vote for can take them for granted,

So I guess there is no one the blacks can support since Obama's supporters even called him lazy.

Good article and i can see where she is coming from but in my OPINION, the black voter who pulls the lever for Obama in November are not doing it in response to Joe Wilson but simply because they are voting for a black man. I don't think you can get around that.

I don't blame them for voting skin color but at least be HONEST about it.. I know the candidates wont but that doesn't mean we can't!

I'm pretty liberal, I plan to vote for Obama, but I think the backlash against Stacy Dash is disgusting. She's allowed to support whoever she wants to support. This is still a free country...for now, anyway.

Look at the credo's of the author of the article, Sherrilyn A. Ifill

As left leaning a progressive liberal as you can get....

Why don't you stop and think where that backlash was coming from? She wasn't being "loyal" to her race. She wasn't being "black". Is that the mentality you support? She was being her own person, thinking for herself and not doing what is "expected" of her by virtue of the color of her skin.

I applaud anyone who stands up for what they believe, not what they are told to believe.

I really don't see that Obama has been treated any differently than Bush was.. I really don't! But, what's that old saying; "you see what you want to see.."

And we will never forget nor will my generations coming up the pure hate your side has displayed towards us for not being white. Your side has always thought because we are black we were not as good as white people, but don't worry we will never forget
