african americans are also majority social conservative, but they constantly vote democrat for economic reasons. The democrats play up the entitlement mentality in the black community

They also play the hate cracker race card—making them think Republicans are “the man” who is still keeping them down takes away the stigma of being a bum and collecting handouts—instead they feel “entitled.”

african americans are also majority social conservative ...
With all due respect, this simply isn't true.
For starters, black women have a far higher rate of abortion than any other group of women.
Out of wedlock birth rates for blacks have also been far higher than that of whiteys or people of Asian descent.
You might be thinking that a large percentage of blacks who voted for Proposition 8 in California, as well as similar measures in other states, might be an indicator of social conservatism. But for the most part, these sorts of things seem to be anomalies in the grand scheme of black voting patterns than an indication of a new way of thinking.
The two issues above I know are simply the tip of the iceberg when one wants to counter the argument that as a group, blacks are socially conservative. Throw in the voting trends, and there's just simply no way to come to this conclusion.

(Regarding liberalism, always attribute to malice what you think can be explained by stupidity. - Me)
The other problem is that the RAT Party has carefully nutured the belief that monorities are continuous victims.
How someone with a college degree and plenty of opportunities, cannot let go of perpetual victimhood is pathetic.
