So, I guess this is where people start bashing on the GOP for their efforts? Sadly, a large percentage of the African American community in America has betrayed its roots and sold it soul for cheap hand outs. It's not politically correct to say, I get that. Truth is truth. There is no war on poverty in America. Never has been, never will be. The Democrats of the South were the party of slavery back then, and they are the party of slavery now. They just don't use plantations and chains to enslave anymore. Now, they use ghettos and SNAP cards. Back then, slaves were forced to work the fields. Now, slaves are forced to vote for the party of condescension and hand outs, for fear of not getting the free stuff to survive on.

As all of America's large cities collapse in ruins, all run by Democrats, the African American community is expected to point the figure of blame on the party who has absolutely no power in the cities?

Good luck with that. Shake off your chains or enjoy your slavery.

To win the votes of black americans, the GOP would need to come up with entitlement programs the democrats overlooked.

Greg Gutfeld was right when he said that " liberals destroy more cities than godzilla". Detroit is a perfect example.

the strange thing about Detroit is that the inner city neighborhoods are suffering from a plethora of social and economical ills not of their doing and completely out of their control....but downtown is BOOMING!

CNN exit poll showed 55% Obama for women. That does not answer your question completely. The further question is, "How much do women influence a husband or SO vote?" To go back further(1790) in American History when only land owners could vote, I guess Obama would have received a 10% vote and .000001% if still black.

Funny you should mention Escalades. This came over the wire just yesterday so I thought I'd pass it along.

Community Colleges offer new diploma program

In a valiant attempt to break the cycle of crime and child abandonment in cities across the northeast, many community colleges are now offering a diploma program in Escalade Rim Polishing.

Graduates of the new program are expected to meet high demand from chop shops, car washes, and Cadillac Dealerships.

In an effort to meet Minimum Student Enrollment Standards set by the state, prerequisites are being kept to a minimum, i.e., neither a high school diploma nor a GED is required; however, a signed release from participant's County Probation Department is mandatory.

prerequisite: Ebonics 101 or equivalent

F@$%! you with this bs post! WTF have you racist, white, old arse, entitled pieces of chit done for anyone that wasn't white, rich, and racist? Not a gd thing! You're not getting our votes! The racist Dixicrats ran over to your party along with the Nazis, skin heads, KKK, white power groups, Libertarians, and whatever else scum you all could dig up from the sewers to gain votes for your NAZI party. You showed your hand, racist, pos when you couldn't resist from saying "handouts" over and over when it's math-mathtically impossible for blacks at 13% of this nations population to be receiving all the handouts and entitlements! It's your freaking race of white trash receiving all the handouts and entitlements and they were the DEMOCRATS or Dixiecrats of hold, racist, trailer park living, white trash! You think you can come in here with a few buzz words like plantations and chains, like that old darkie, Cain you used in the Presidential elections to sway blacks, dumb aholes! His affinity for blondes destroyed that, didn't it?

Go sell stupid somewhere else. Your party is old, stupid, backwards and retarded. You're so freaking clueless that you're even pissing off Catholics now by messing with the pope, who's left, azzwipes?

GTFOH, racist, republican scum! Your azzes are done, cooked and finished! The only ones who don't know it is you all, Republican trolls infesting sites with your venom which is another reason the population can't stand you jack asses. Old azz white men scared of losing power and racist white trash thinking you old, rich, white men give a chit about them! Don't worry about us, we can't hear a gd thing you all say. In the end, you'll be suffering more than we ever did! When the depression hit, black folks didn't even realize it, because they always did without! You mudder pluckers ain't handing out chit, you're taking and stealing, pensions, health care, jobs, etc. There is no more middle class thanks to you phuckers! If you think the Democratic party represents minorities, you best believe that you blood suckers represent the rich (1%) and corporations and your candidate, Mitt Romney, the billionaire Mormon and fake arse, apostate bishop is who you all worship and he told your poor white trash azzes that he didn't give a chit about you and he's one of the raiders during the melt down and benefited from it, him and his wife and lied about it! They hid their money in the Cayman Island! They took a large GUBBERMINT HANDOUT, LYING SACK OF CHITS! But that's who you racists wanted for president! Puleeze! The only stupid people are lower to middle-class whites who think the Republicans represent them!

Only the repukes would be so stupid as to reach out to the criminal, parasitic, ugly, evil, n!@@er vermin who destroyed deeeeeeeeetwoit in the first place. The only way to save America is to wage a racial war of utter extermination and put the evil colored vermin in the mass graves where they belong!!!!

Don't hate the fact that we Whites run America as we always have, & always will, live with it, it's never going to change to benefit you blacks, just us Whites, you blacks who infest our country are stictly off the official record & as such we as the superior race we can crush each & every dream & attempt at forward progress for you failed people, our combined but separate histories have long proven that disparity, like it or not, that's just they way it is.

The natives are getting restless. They see their freebies going down the drain if the Republicans decide to make them get off the sofa, and go to work like the rest of us. They have laid around for generations. Their off spring never see the males in the family work for a living in 75% of the families. The children are capable of doing good work in school, but they are not encouraged to get an education.
