So, I just thought that this was interesting and wanted to see what everyone else thought.
The exit poll they took that determined the percentage of who each race voted for showed that 59 percent whites voted Romney and 39 percent Obama. The percentage of blacks that voted for Obama was 93 compared to 7 percent for Romney.
My thought is that this poll doesn't show that whites are racist at all. It looks to me like it is the other way around. I saw countless times during this election year, that when a white man said he was voting for Romney, he was called racist. I hope this poll helps to clear up the fact that race isn't a factor to whites. Of course, to a few I am sure it is and always will be, but not to most of us.**Glad this election is OVER!

This is silly. If the roles were reversed what would you do?

It's no better or worse than people voting for Romney because Obama is going to take all our jobs or take all our money. Same stuff, different stupid reason.

Why would the fact that 93 percent of blacks voted for Presient Obama have anything to do with them being racist? It just means the values and ethics of those people are more in line with what the Commander in Chief would represent during his next four years if given the opportunity. Oh play the RACE CARD. Think not! Dr. King always taught to judge a person according to his character and not the color of the skin. So your evaulation of the statistical data does not hold water. LOL!! You ain't no statistician. Race is no factor to black folks but character will always be. What is wrong? You mad? HeeHee We understand the vote of all people of all colors put him in office this time and last time! WooWoo !!!

Uh, ok ya'll are getting defensive but my point was that whites did help to elect him. Just proving the fact that Americans are not racist against blacks any longer. Sorry you took it the wrong way.

Racism still exists, and it's evident in both ways. Again, this is silly. 93% of black people voted for Obama. Yep. They could have voted for Herman Cain back in the primaries, but they didn't. Cultural differences /=/ racism.

You need to learn the difference between the words "bias" and "racism". As Xuande said, they didn't magically vote for Cain because of his skin color.
Here is a little race relations magic I can pass onto Republicants. If you keep claiming you are not racist, but people are not buying it. It may be because of something you are DOING not what you are SAYING!

Racism still exits among all people of all walks of life colors creeds relgions and ethic backgrounds. If you think racism against blacks is non-existed because Obama is half black. Whatever. My three cats also voted. What is your point. Racism is still around buddy come on my job I have a master's degree and my boss is a high school graduate. I run the place and he gets credit. Yea man this is real life. And don't tell me to look for another job. I should not have to but don't worry I am.

No one said racism didn't exist. As a matter of fact they said they are sure it does exist some, but not all. And as far as your job goes then that happens to everyone not just blacks. I don't know you so i don't know your situation, but I know that is something that goes on all over. And most of the time it has to do with more of who you know and who you are friends with. You can't judge a whole race of people on just a few crazy people.
