"...He can got back the last 10 elections and the % will still be about the same..."<quoted text>
I think he was trying to point out that mostly white voters vote for republican.. Well no dough.. Mostly blacks and hispanics vote for the dems.. But he was trying to link it to racism since obama is black and thats not why most of the pubs got the a higher % of white voters.. He can got back the last 10 elections and the % will still be about the same..
...and right wing prejudice doesn't go back that far?
Seriously eagle, the claim was made that African-Americans only voted for Obama because he was black when the truth is that the majority of African-Americans have been voting democrat for a long time because the republicans don't offer any policies that do their communities any good.
In 2000 Bush got 8% of the black vote. It wasn't because his opponent was black. It was because they rejected his policies and his parties agenda.
When Obama ran for President, many African-Americans felt that he was best suited to represent their interests. A lot of right wing whites called it racism, but refuse to even look at the fact that Romney's campaign in 2008 was based on a single race strategy.
They wanted 62% of the white vote and they would have won the election.
88% of the people that voted for Romney were white and there's a reason for that.
