You comment inspired me to dig up our past here in Ohio when Ken Blackwell was running for Governor, and here is what I found:<quoted text>
Don't you mean your planet is Earth AKA Terra. And your country is the USA.
Thing is, even those Blacks who are also Conservative. Those who voted for Obama are now regretting it. Instead of standing up for their principals. But a few were told that if they voted as who they stood for, they would be disowned. This includes those my husband & I know.
They would rather vote for a Black that was running on the Republican ticket. And from the sounds of it, There is at least one who is considering it.
"Thats empirically false. As Nia-Malika Henderson recently pointed out, the biggest factor determining whether African Americans vote Republican isnt a candidates race. Its his or her views. In 2006, for instance, conservative black Republican Ken Blackwell won 20 percent of the African-American vote in his campaign for governor of Ohio. In 1994, by contrast, a white Republican candidate for the same office, George Voinovich, won 42 percent of the black vote, largely because as mayor of Cleveland he had pursued policieslike desegregating the citys police forcethat African Americans liked."
Twenty percent of the black vote. How can that be?
Conservative and Republican blacks are considered the black sheep of the family (no pun intended.)
Most blacks look at conservative or Republican blacks as back-stabbers, sellouts, Uncle Tom's. They don't even consider such blacks as part of the black race.
So I don't know if having a black presidential nominee for the Republican party will do us that much good. Better than running against DumBama? Perhaps. But no matter what Republicans do, I don't see them getting 50% of the black votes or more in many years to come.
