African Americans have always voted Democrat


Recommended Posts

I Don't understand the Media and people on this board making it a big deal. Ohh their only voting for obama because he's a black men :rolleyes:

Look at the numbers over the last 3 elections the proof is in the pudding. Clinton, Gore and Kerry were all supported heavily by African Americans.

Now we have a black male running for president for a party that always gets the black vote. Now its a problem doing what we do every four years because the man is black? The Democrats didnt need a Gimmick save that for the republican party(Palin). We actually lost votes going with a black presidential nominee.

So now i ask the question how are blacks voting for Obama just because he's black??

I understand you underlying point; however, historically, from the Civil War until the 1930's, blacks voted predominantly Republican (the ones who could vote).

Probably the Lincoln after effect as long as people lived who actually saw first hand what slavery means

I have a question as a non-American: How come that the two parties seem to have "swapped" positions since then? You know,the Democratic party used to be the party of the white southener with a strong focus on states rights and now clearly that is the GOP. For a European, it´s hard to figure out when and why this change happened.

The reason it’s difficult to understand is because our two-party system is nothing but a theater play. You might have a left and a right arm; however, they are both controlled by the brain.

Basically, the Elite have found it too difficult to control large populations with an open dictatorship, the people always rebel but if they are given the illusion of choice, they’re complacent.

Virtually, every single person in a leadership position in either of the parties belongs to the Council on Foreign Relations / Trilateral Commission. Their underlying agenda is a one World Government. These management arms are the creation of an International Banking Cartel.

It’s like a football team with two running backs taking turns getting handoffs to advance the football (agenda) down the field.

How long has it been like this? It’s hard to say, certainly since the Industrial Revolution.

While much of their plans would be considered nefarious by most, it’s pretty obvious the general population is largely irresponsible and not deserving of much freedom. It is necessary to have “controlled growth” because the useless eaters, who multiply at an alarming rate, as if they were a virus would completely take over the body.

From what I know, the democrats and republicans seem to have shifted based upon who was helping blacks the most. Not sure but I think it was the JFK years.

It was. The JFK years/Civil Rights Era.

Plus, alot of Blacks during that era viewed JFK and Dr. King as martyrs to the cause against civil rights oppression and still do to this day. That viewpoint was passed down to their children and so on even though it was the actions of the Republicans voting in the House (not the Democrats/Dixiecrats) that passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Don't get it confused. Black voters may have a habit of voting Democrat, but not necessarily black people. Like all other races and segments of America, there are a large portion of blacks out there who never cared to vote before. Some blacks don't trust government given its history of treatment and racial relations. Some other blacks never vote because they think none of the candidates push black issues hard enough.

There are going to be a lot of blacks stepping up to the polls for the first time ever to vote in Obama. Some of them may never vote again unless Obama wins or another black person is running. On the flip side, there are a few racists out there who themselves will go to the polls for the first time and vote against Obama this November. Race is a big deal in this election, as it will bring people who otherwise would not vote to the table.

Well, since that time there have been changes in both parties and I may not be a democrat (can't because I'm a Jesus-i-crat-igan) I see where one party actually seems to give a rats patooty about poor people and blacks more than the other.

Almost correct the majority vote was democrat though. You are correct the change was heavily based on the civil rights acts. The democrats continued running with it. On the flip there are a lot of black conservatives but the masses are left wing.

More conservative when it comes to values, but liberal when it comes to politics.

A complicated combo for some for sure.

Not just a few just as many racist will vote against obama because of hes race and the ignorant lies started about the man. I agree race is a big deal in this election.
