*Barf Alert* Why Millions of African-Americans Won't Vote For Obama
University of Saint Thomashttp://www.stthomas.edu/lawmagazine/2008/Summer/Stuckey.html | 2008 | Shawn Stuckey

When the election rolls around in November, a large, traditionally Democratic constituency will be missing. Many would expect this constituency to come out in droves to support Barack Obama, but this group of men will not cast their ballot for the African-American presumptive Democratic presidential candidate. These men will be noticeably absent from the polls, not because of apathy or anger or any of the other traditional voting deterrents; these men will remain away from the voting booths because they are legally prohibited due to felon disenfranchisement laws. Felon disenfranchisement laws have resulted in the loss of the right to vote in 13 percent of the United States’ African-American adult male population and, in some states, particularly in the South, 40 percent of African-American men are likely to be disenfranchised permanently.

Well boo hoo hoo. If these idiot felons stopped following the stupid hobbled black myth that imbues the black community and did something with their lives other than shoot and kill everybody else and make it a living hell for those of us who want to succeed, they would be able to vote for their empty talking hero.

I’m willing to bet many of them will vote anyway.

Truly. But then, though able, would they still want to?

Felon disenfranchisement

Almost as bad as the "undocumented workers" bullchit. My suggestion to these maggots would be, if you want to vote, don't commit murders, rapes, burglaries, robberies etc. The choice is up to you.

How 'bout now we discuss Second Amendment Rights "disenfranchisement." If this is important enough to restore their voting rights, we should also restore their Second Amendment rights! Shouldn't we?

Lousy personal judgment... check.
Doesn’t pay taxes... check.
Preys on productive, law-abiding Americans... check.
Votes for socialists... check.

Is there any conceivable way that adding even more of these people to the voter rolls would be a net positive for society?

Sorry but I’m just not seeing it. We need to raise the bar for voting, not lower it.

Exactly. These felons probably never voted before they committed their crimes. Now, all of a sudden, it’s all important??

The article is stating in effect that 13% of African American males are felons generally, and in some places 40%.

The article misses its own point:

If true, the problem isn't voting, it is a serious indictment of the community referenced and its moral disintegration. It should also be advocating racial profiling.

If false or exaggerated, it is a racist slander

The premise is bogus. White, Asian and Latino felons can’t vote either.

I think it’s too bad there aren’t any tapes of the Jesse Jackson impersonation Obama did when he was at Harvard. That would sure raise some eyebrows.

There are also millions of black voters who won’t vote for Obama because they are Christian and do not support him on the issue of gay marriage.

My dad made some great mistakes and served a few years of prison time.
Every election cycle his greatest grief was that he could not vote.
He knew and understood why, because of his crime he lost this precious privilege.
I really think the prison time was not as bad for him as not being able to vote.

They "disenfranchised" themselves.
They're felons, and that's the law, and IMO, it's a good one.

LoL! yep! I guess when they are asked who they are going to vote for they say "Obama" but leave out the "if I could" part.

You can take a tour of any Maryland state prison and you’ll notice something pertinent to those statistics, right off the bat.

Here in Wisconsin, a very large number of these felons will be at the polls voting. In fact they will be at several polls voting several times. Our Godfather (Governor) Will be driving one of the buses used to transport them from poll to poll.

How come minorities always have problmes when laws on the books are enforced?

If they weren’t criminals and didn’t raise their children to be thugs and parasites there’d be no issue. Period.

This goes beyond just the criminal vote of course.

During the election cycle, Democrat operatives put a great deal of pressure on “get out the vote” efforts in the ghetto.

The existance of the disenfranchisement of felons law gives folks in the hood a way to beg off voting if they are apathetic, otherwise occupied or for whatever reason just do not wish to vote.

I wouldn’t bet on it. With ACORN and friends I’m sure many will commit another crime and vote......

The biggest problem is that many young people these days are edjumakated by the government schkrool system, and have no idea what a felon is.

I believe this is true, I don’t think he will win as high a percentage of this group as is being predicted. The exit polls will say he got 93% of black voters but it won’t be true.

Last week the Democratic governor of Virginia fixed it so tens of thousands of convicted felons in our state can vote.
