Black voter turnout passes white rate

Apr 28, 2013 Full story: Politico 220

America's blacks voted at a higher rate than other minority groups in 2012 and by most measures surpassed the white turnout for the first time, reflecting a deeply polarized presidential election in which blacks strongly supported Barack Obama while many whites stayed home.

It is called parity. White people vote once, and blacks multi vote. How else would 13% of the population cast the most votes? It is illegal unless you are black, then it is encouraged.
And yet nobody is doing anything about it, that's makes them part of the problem.

<quoted text>I suppose it would never occur to you that people, black, white, etc. might have voted for Obama because they consider him to be an inspiring, visionary leader competing against a stupefyingly narrow-minded, dull-witted alternative.
What your analysis "neglects" to mention is that in the 2008 Democratic primary, Obama beat Clinton among white voters too.
Also, your little play-on-words with Obama's name does not insult him so much as it reveals you as someone from the shallow end of the gene pool.
Yep, typical liberal insults again. We can almost predict what you're going to say before you say it.

Now what did this "inspiring visionary" leader have to offer? Hope and change? That's it? Nothing more than that? And after his four year failure, why did blacks overwhelmingly vote for him again? More hope and change?

You can hold the palms of your hands to your ears and sing aloud all you like, but blacks will always hate whites and side against us at every opportunity. Some (like Colon Powell) would even be happy to throw a white under the bus if they could.

Some like you may never learn no matter how many Obama elections or how many OJ trials there are. The rest of us will see the clear and obvious picture.

No conservative in the last 12 years? You don’t think GWB was a conservative??? He certainly wasn’t a moderate, not by any stretch of the imagination. Reagan got what he wanted and so did GWB. Reagan was a pragmatist who knew how to negotiate to his advantage. GWB got what he wanted because no one in Congress stood up to him. Had Congress done their job and curtailed GWB we wouldn’t have gotten into that multi-trillion dollar waste of a war in Iraq.
The reason no one had to push a “1” to speak in Russian, Polish, German or Italian was because during the turn of the century (1900) the influx of European immigration there were no phones.
Immigrant assimilation into a new culture depends on various factors: economic- moving up the economic ladder, cultural-learning a new language and customs and civic-becoming citizens and participating in the electoral process. Children who are born in this country of immigrant parents are unrecognizable from any other American born child. The immigrants of today are no different than in years pass.
How do you not try to become party of inclusiveness? New blood is needed, with different perspectives and ideas. Because if not stagnation will ensue leading to a decaying, ineffectual political party.
And correct me if I’m wrong but (according to republican lore) didn’t Ronald Reagan take out the evil empire? Is the USSR still around? No, it is not. You can say communism proved to be a failed political/social/economic system. Put the past to rest.
There were plenty of people still coming into this country in the mid 1900's when people had telephones. I was born in an ethnic neighborhood where most people spoke Polish. Our city was divided among different ethnicities until the blacks started to move in and neighborhoods broke up and scattered into the suburbs.

Forget the telephones, these Hispanics want us to ignore laws and possibly create laws just for them. Forget about all the immigrants that did play by the rules and did come here legally. Mexicans should just be allowed to stay and live here under any capacity.

Sorry, but the immigrants of the past are way different than the immigrants of today. Immigrants back then had pride and dignity.

And no, George Bush was not a conservative.

Do you know all the “Hispanics” that live in this country? Do you know of the differences between the various Latino communities? Yes, there is a shared language, but there are also cultural differences among Latinos. Marco Rubio may plan on running in 2016 for the presidency, are you saying he too wanted laws ignored to benefit him? You just can’t make sweeping generalizations.

Historically speaking, immigrants who’ve to this country have faced discrimination, prejudice, segregation and racism. The Irish, Poles, Chinese, Italians, and others were all vilified at one point. Many of them, like the Irish and Chinese, were even considered sub-human. The immigrants of the past are no different than the current wave. They’ll just have to go through the same baptism by fire like previous groups have done.

And GWB was and continues to be a conservative.

Which is fine by me if that's the way they wish to come here. But that's not reality. Reality is that we have over 11 million of these people who are not supposed to be here. They want us to make special exceptions just for them, and former immigrants didn't expect nor request that.

This was done once before with Ronald Reagan, so it's not like a one-time deal. If we grant amnesty again, we will be facing the same issue in another 20 years or so.

Just a few points:

- I resent you calling me "typical". Do I come where you work and steal your shovel?

- Spell Colin Powell's name correctly. He is not an internal organ.

- You may not be paranoid. You may just have the brain of a tree stump.

Except for your first post, every one of your nearly 90,000 posts has been a variation of your first one. If you can post the same moronic prattle for that long, I have a right to the occasional encore.

Don't you mean EBT cards? There's fifty million of those things floating 'round the country now. Maybe you too, and that's why you don't see cash, either, patty.
