Blacks make up less then 15% of our population. The only way they could outvote whites is if they multi vote. They did, and they don't give a damn if you know it. They have no more respect for this country then the illegals the Democrats are trying to shove down our throats. Call your congressman, and tell him how you feel about Amnesty.

They are a minority that is a majority when it comes to voting techniques.

If there were such a thing, a black majority vote it would be short lived. Once there is immigration reform, the Hispanic majority will be, shall we say, less generous.

Maybe we should be more worried about the violence and murder rate for African Americans.

Remember that in Chicago every black whether alive, dead for centuries or unborn voted for Obama at least 50 times. The same is true of most major urban areas.

The unemployment rate in the African American community under Obamanomics has remained over 20% throughout his presidency. The losers are the ones who bought his empty rhetoric about hope and change. Hoping to find some loose change on the sidewalk is more like it.

So when that beautiful Black girl was killed in Chicago after returning from performing in the Inaugural parade, you consider that a positive? So in your mind her death is a good thing because she deserved to die because she was Black?

Wow… those good old conservative Christian values on display. And you wonder why minorities avoid the racist right-wing tea-bagging bigots in the GOP?

THE PRIMARIES ARE IMPORTANT !

This is where the true conservatives have the most say.

Primaries are overlooked by the majority of people.

Hispanics are natural conservatives, once they understand what the real deal is, they will vote with the conservatives. The Cubans are great example of this.

It is not good that ANYONE OF ANY RACE BE MURDERED !!!!!!!

But it's RACIST to lump an entire group together, just because of the comments of one person.

Yep, but most blacks aren't smart enough to know that. Very few know anything about politics in the first place yet alone where to get statistics like that. Besides, they figure they are black--DumBama is a Mulatto, what more needs to be said? That's all they need to know.

Chicago has a high death rate due to GANGS AND THUGS and a mayor that can not control his city. PUT THE BLAME WHERE THE BLAME BELONGS.

Your comment:"Wow… those good old conservative Christian values on display. And you wonder why minorities avoid the racist right-wing tea-bagging bigots in the GOP" is pure BULL SHET- there are AA in the GOP and you as a RACIST CALL THEM UNCLE TOMS and every other hateful name you can think of. The DEMS are the biggest RACISTS and LIARS that have displayed their HATEFULNESS to all other nationalities in America. They are so afraid that a Hispanic is going to get one penny more then they get.

So who's crying? Nobody is crying here or elsewhere. After this big-eared dope is finally out of office, then we can begin to build this economy.

Not really because we political junkies are a small minority in the country. Many people don't even know what they are voting on. They just know it's the American thing to do. They want to do their patriotic duty as a citizen. However, if they don't know what they are voting on, then the most patriotic thing they can do for their country is stay home on election day.

If Republicans want to do anything to help their party, then the first thing they need to do is reject people crossing over party lines in a primary year. If you want to join the Republican party--fine, but you can't join until after the primaries.

I suspect too many Democrats are screwing up our primaries once they are satisfied with their candidate(s). There is no way anybody is going to convince me that the Republican party nominated RINO'S two elections in a row. This is the work of underhanded cheating Democrats.
