Many blacks shrug off Obama's new view on gays
Associated Press ^ | May 11, 2012 | ERRIN HAINES and JESSE WASHINGTON

ARDMORE, Pa. (AP) — Like many black Americans, Dorsey Jackson does not believe in gay marriage, but he wasn't disillusioned when Barack Obama became the first president to support it. The windows of his suburban Philadelphia barbershop still display an "Obama 2012" placard and another that reads "We've Got His Back."

If Obama needs to endorse same-sex marriage to be re-elected, said Jackson, so be it: "Look, man — by any means necessary."

Obama could murder Bill Cosby on TV and blacks would still give him 95%. Monolithic.

You can count the black votes he will lose because of this on one hand. Pressed about it, people will make excuses for him. And, frankly, there’s not much of an alternative anyhow.

Pathetic! Even so, I think he will lose some votes among blacks, not much, but maybe a percent or so. Instead of 99.999999%, it will be 98.999999%

I get a kick out of the handwringing I hear about how blacks might reconsider voting for Obama because of his stance on gays.

Zero could make a gay porn tape of himself and a Catholic priest getting it on and the black community would still vote for him in overwhelming droves.

These blacks hate whites more than they hate homosexuals.

Blacks have the highest rate of HIV-Aids in the fag group.

How much can blacks hate fags if they are fags?

They invented the term, down low {being a black closet queer}.

Blacks are like mooselimbs, they say one thing and do another.

If he is still black and socialist in November, he has the black vote. Racism trumps any and all other beliefs for 95% of blacks.

Actually, if Romney or a PAC were to frame this as a "civil rights" turf war, it could get interesting. Try to take the civil rights mantle off them and they get,...errr..territorial? just tossing it out there?

“Look, man — by any means necessary.”
Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!

I for one am not surprised a bit. 95-97& of the black vote just because he is a brotha. When blacks vote 90-99% for a black candidate, it is “Racial Pride”. When whites vote 60% for the white candidate, it is “RACISM”.

This from a black man:

Folks, I think he's already losing black support. I can just image all the black pastors in Church this Sunday dealing with the issue that occupant of 1600 Pa Ave has evolved into...

...You can bet there won't be ringing endorsements.

In fact, what I suspect you'd here spoken softly among the brethren is the word 'sellout'. Should make for interesting conversation in the local barber shop.

With that said, I suspect it won't make that much of a difference, and not because blacks vote in lock step for dems.

You see, I am one who doesn't believe that blacks for 99% democrat. I *do* believe that 99% of the vote fraud that takes place is done in the black communities, with un-suspecting black voters as the victims. No one thinks about it because everyone just *assumes* all black folks vote D.

Yes, you always see and hear the black politician screaming that passing laws that mandate a person show and ID to vote is 'disenfranchisement'. They know damn well (like everyone else) that no one is denied government ID these days. They are not screaming to protect the rights of black folks to 'vote early and often', Instead, I suspect they are screaming to protect their own right (and that of their henchmen in power) to stuff ballot boxes - in their own communities.

Meanwhile, Zero has stepped in it big time, and not just because he has royally pissed off a loyal part of his base (AP propaganda not withstanding - nice try, guys), but he's demonstrated to a lot more people that he is willing to sell his own soul, and hurl blasphemies against God for 30 pieces of silver.

...Strange. I remember someone writing about that somewhere; predicting it would happen - a long time ago

First of all, it’s a ‘wink-wink’ thing. IMO

Second, yes they’ll vote for him even if he told them he was the a-c.

Actually when any white doesn't vote for any black candidate it's racism. At least we understand their rules ...

"If Obama needs to endorse same-sex marriage to be re-elected, said Jackson, so be it: "Look, man — by any means necessary."

So if he performs oral sex on Rahm Emmanuel (probably not for the first time, mind you) on national TV to lock in the gay vote, that's ok, slick?

Okay, so I know that if you try to use logic and reason with liberals, you're on shaky ground...

Nonetheless I would say to the black community:

"You are being dissed. Obama's goal is to get elected, so he makes promises to the gay community to get their votes. He DOESN"T PROMISE YOU ANYTHING because he feels he's already got your vote. They are being pandered to, and you are being taken for granted. How's it feel to be back on the plantation?"

Some fine day, probably many decades from now, possibly in the next century if America still exists, Black Americans will have an epiphany and realize that by giving their vote to Democrat politicians without question, especially if that politician looks like them, they are throwing away a lot of power and the politician recipients of those votes are laughing at them for doing so.

The decent, hard working, tax paying, home owning, family oriented black people I know do not like Obama. Unfortunately they represent only a very small minority of blacks. The rest have the demorat gene in them and nothing will get it out except cutting welfare, housing and food stamp programs then maybe the thugs will go to Africa. Like to see them pull their crap there! It would probably be way cheaper to pay them say, $1500 per month to get out of America and live like kings in Kenya. Sure would solve a lot of problems.

First of all, thank you for identifying as a black man. I fear that a lot of intemperate posts on racial matters show up here. While some of that may come from actual racism, I think a lot of it is a reflection of what has been allowed as acceptable posting - i.e. knee jerk one liners, off the top of the read and angry reaction to some truly outrageous situations.

The problem with all that is that we miss opportunity to help one another in strengthening our skills in actual refutation of our opponents by logic and reasoning frrom the facts.

Thanks for posting thoughtfully and adding a good insight relative to voter fraud as a plausible explanation for the seeming solid Democrat vote from black districts. It certainly makes more sense than the majority on the thread whose mantra sounds like “All black voters are stupid and corrupt tools.”

Obama will get over 90% of the black vote. The question is whether they will turn out to vote with the same intensity. If 1/3 fewer blacks vote, it makes a huge difference.
