Are Blacks Conditioned to Vote Democrat?
Illinois Review ^ | 11/24/2010 | Fran Eaton

Posted on 11/24/2010 8:15:56 AM PST by pinstripes715

Illinois' own Dr. Eric Wallace reprimands fellow black Americans in a recent controversial Freedom Journal's Magazine column for the community's misguided devotion to Democrats. He compares voting for Democrats to Pavlov's conditioning experiments:

No... many,but not all, are conditioned to vote for the person who blames ‘whitey’ for every problem in black folks neighborhood.

The democrats keep Blacks poor and blame it on Republicans.

What I don’t understand, is after so many years of promises, and never doing anything, Blacks keep voting for the same phonies who take advantage of them.

It depends on how one defines “conditioned”.Simply put,the overwhelming majority of blacks in this country see themselves as victims,past..present...and,most likely,future.This is a belief that has been patiently promoted by the RAT Party over the last 40+ years.And the RAT Party is the logical home of all “victims”.Thus,we see 95% of blacks voting RAT...time,and time,and time again.

Yes, they definitely are Pavlovian-conditioned. When they smell an entitlement they immediately begin to salivate and lurch to pull the straight Demonrat lever.

Hopefully if we keep having Men like Marco Rubio and Allan West step up, we can finally overcome the myth that the Democratic party is the party for minorities and the working class.

Sad!!! POTUS Obama has failed them (he never cared about them other then their votes). The NAACP has failed them across the board (racist to its core). And... the worst of all, the Congressional Black Caucus is nothing but an organization of shysters, criminals, Black racists and people users. There is an answer. It’s quite simple. It’s called assimilation and diversity. How about trying to become Americans in American society? Try it, or life for American Blacks, if they continue to follow and support Obama and his ilk, is going to remain keeping Blacks chained to the bottom of the economic and opportunity totem pole. The good news is little by little, Blacks who are astute enough, see the handwriting on the wall and are attempting to change the masses of Black voters. Let’s hope it works for their sake!!! It is time for American Blacks to get real, broom Obama and their “so-called” Black leadership!!!

Plantation mentality.

Imagine your highest desire is to get another 50c. per hour minimum wage. All the while the race hustlers get rich while exploiting the average black citizen.

Because their church ministers, community organizers, rappers and national black leaders tell them to vote democrat, and they comply.

He'll get a warning from Chicago that black leaders don't like his position, and he's to get his feet back in line immediately.

Ridiculous.. Some whites still vote Democrat because that’s the way their families have voted since FDR. And many of these white voters are people who work and pay taxes, are proud of their country, served in the military, etc., but STILL vote Democrat. It’s irrational, but there you go..

Blacks are no different than whites in this regard.

It would be ludicrous to say all, but this true story may be pretty typical: My sister worked for a bank for over thirty years. When the election for Bush vs Gore came up, she had made friends with a young Black girl. At their lunch hour they talked politics and my sister thought she had the girl talked into voting for Bush. After the election she asked her if she did vote for Bush. Her answer was, “ no, I just couldn't vote against my people”.

I am American Indian and my tribe (Yurok, N. Calif) votes about 95% democrat. As well as most all tribes in the US do with about the same percentage. Why? I believe it is because the Democrats promise them all kinds of things, but of course, when the election is over they never deliver. Yet, when the next election time comes around, there they are on the Rez promising the same things they did the last time around. The Indians are just to stupid to wake up and realize they are being used. I believe Blacks fit into this same scenario.

Your comments fall in line with what we so often see as the media and black community shuns any black conservatives who find their way to national prominence.

Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice, Michael Steele ...even Lynn Swan where assaulted by their own people to the point of "no longer being black" because they dared to form their own opinions and speak about traditional values.

I forgot to mention, I live in Hawaii and we have the same thing going on here. I once told a local that he should vote for the Republican. His answer, Oh no, if my parents found out I didn’t vote Democrat, they would kill me. This was a grown man.

Iconic symbol of the fruits of liberalism. The crushing of the human spirit.

The answer is yes. I read that the majority of black Americans were Republicans, 1870-1935, because they knew that Republicans wanted to ban racial discrimination and that Democrats encouraged racial discrimination. During the Depression, when the majority of Blacks were in poverty, they needed to use the New Deal help, to survive, so the majority of Blacks became Democrats. Now, the majority of Blacks are middle class, and they vote for Democrats because their parents and grandparents were Democrats.

“The democrats keep Blacks poor and blame it on Republicans.”

So true, and yet the Republicans NEVER do or say anything that would disprove this. They are a victim of their own pathetic ways of doing nothing to defend themselves.

I think one of the reasons that the classification methods commonly known as 'profiling' has become so well known is, it's easier to spell than 'stereotyping'.

So in 'typical white person' tradition, my 'stereotypical' remarks are that over the many years I've been exhaling the gore-dreaded carbon dioxide, I have noted that blacks SEEM TO BE stereotypically very emotional, relying a great deal on pure feelings to cope with the world around them.

Having said that, that particular trait of relying on emotions makes one easily lead, easily whipped up into a feeding frenzy by the likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and barak obama...all 'community OGASMizers'.

I see the same 'leaders' who whip them up into a frenzy about something none of them even remember - namely, 'slavery' - have put themselves on the auction block and sold themselves in to slavery of the democrat massa's for entitlements, and the priviledge of not having to actually pay attention to the world outside their welfare check.

The democrat leaders - using their front men of 'community ogasmizers' know this and use it to their full advantage in keeping America in a continual state of racial unrest. They can't let 'racial harmony' take root, as it would erode the very base of their power over blacks.

Meanwhile, the white people are looking around and are very tired of the one-way street that the racemongers are trying to create, and I don't think the people are going to wait 400 years to declare their liberty, nor will they submit to 'slavery' in any form, by the democrats, the UN, or the tag team of soros/obama.

When you peel back the layers of that onion, you will see that the 'community ogasmizers', NAACP, Black Caucus, and other racebaiters are 'one note Johnny' organization...EVERYTHING about their total existence and power is based on political correctness and race. Logical arguments be damned.

Yes, the democrats have set up the new plantation, but the slim difference is they seem to be utilizizing an 'all-volunteer slavery force' to populate the fields they need tending.

A few shiny beads, free cheese and a constant flow of entitlements have replace the cotton fields and bull whips, but are probably just as effective at keeping them corrallede.

It's fairly safe to say - in a logical sense - that democrats own the black voters. The irony of it is they use the same arguments to fire them up, as they use to control them.

I think that is slowly changing, but it will take a while.

Blacks are no different than whites in this regard.

They have nothing in common, one is just a vote that can't be predicted except to say that it will usually go Republican, and the other is always the same, a 90% plus vote for democrats, totally predictable and inflexible.

It also ignores the totally unique event of the black vote always being for Republicans, including the typical 1932 election when blacks went only 23% for the Democrats, and then them instantly switching to a permanent Democratic vote in 1936 for the first time ever, giving the Democrats 71%, and doing that ever since.

Nothing duplicates that, or even resembles it.
