Do Black People Support Obama Because He’s Black? (Why Are We Still Having This Conversation?)

Liz Dwyer

Another day, another article--this time from the AP--claiming that black voters who support President Obama are racist since they only voted for him in 2008 and plan to vote for him in 2012 because he's black. So the "88 percent of black voters who sided with John Kerry in the 2004 general?" were just a fluke?

    Yes. There is many black americans, who are only voting for Obama, for race... They only do that for they do not even watch the debates or care about the politics. However, there is numerous black people that HATE obama more then any of the most albino of people.
    You also have jack-ass people that vote against Obama for he is black... Thats just people though.

    Many do not realize that, crap is so expensive... Gas, food, ect.. Is from Obama.

    People have allowed many assumptions into race from listen to crap... Rather it was slavery or just seeing people who hate races. Muslism hate white and black people pretty mutally. Actually they hate anyone American.
    But little do many know that slavery was actually a criminal punishment back in the earlier years of our nation.
    You can go to that website and look at all the ratified bills... See for yourself, some blacks were not slaves! Oh well, why so much hate is impacted towards the USA is sometimes just seen to break morality. I guess?
