muslim DNA? lmao. Your comment is dumb but funny. One funny thing about America is the sharp suspicion of Islam. I understand that majority of muslim terrorists target America but it does not mean that Islam as a religion is to blame. It's like saying that all whites are members of the KKK.

<quoted text> Let me tell u something honey, Blacks will never be equal to whites in the way the law and opportunities in things like employment, education etc whether the constitution is there or not. Whether it is in heaven or America. I don't xpect u to relate to all these or to minorities issues coz u are white, but I know what my AA brothers and sisters think even if I live in Africa. They feel that Obama is ideal for them. Look at Obamacare. It benefits low income earners and minorities but rich whites like Romney oppose it. You Americans are no different from us Africans. The rich dictate living conditions while the poor and working class "endure" living with these conditions. Now u know why blacks and other minorities support Obama and not Romney who has no concrete proposals to the minority groups interests.
Blacks in america have all the rights in the world. But of course they have unemployment problems. They walk around with their pants falling down, dont speak proper english, and have high crime rates. What do you expect?! They're not all like that, which is why we see some become very successful. But come on. This has gotten so ridiculous that blacks are racist against whites. But the reality is that they have rights but instead choose to blame others for their failures , dwell on the past, and take from the government.

The democrats use the blacks for amusement and votes. Then after the election they move on to the real seriuous stuff like Big Bird and Polar Bears.

100% correct. Democrats do use black people. They are easily bought off by Obama Phones and other handouts. Blacks look the other way when Democrats fight against school vouchers which enabled many black students to attend superior schools at their parents choice. They also looked the other way when DumBama increased the cost of cigarettes which statistically, affect the poor and middle-class.

We don't know. What we do know is that with DumBama, the party comes before the country.

Well then 47% of our country are not doing their social duty because they pay no income tax.

Jesus asked his followers to be like him--not give your money to the government and put them in charge of how to deal it out. Jesus and government didn't get along that well.

Are you fkin retarded? Clinton received 90% of the AA vote, and so has nearly every DEMOCRAT since the 40ís. SHUT YOUR UNEDUCATED AZZ UP PLEASE!
Then let me inform your educated azz: DumBama had the same percentage of black votes in the primaries when he ran against Hillary Clinton. She had ten times more federal experience than the community organizer. Explain that one.
