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.

I’ve written about this before and I’ll do it again. “Latino” or “Hispanic” is a label that has been thrust upon society by a liberal government and re-enforced by the media. People that have been placed in this group have NOTHING in common other than the fact that the speak Spanish. To expect them to have similar voting habits is LUDICROUS!

What does Mr. Dominguez, and self described “Mexican- American” from San Antonio have in common with a “Dominican-American” who grew up in New York? (Oh, how I hate hyphens)

Why don’t they lump Americans of Irish descent with Americans Of Australian or New Zealand or Scottish or Welsh?????.....I think you get the idea.
