Wonder if this plank will drive some blacks away from the Demoncrats?
I know for a fact it has and its caused many of their Pastors to come out against Obama. The number of people who follow these pastors in Texas and Louisiana is quite large. There are sizeable Black Church communities in both Houston and Dallas/Ft. Worth areas and their pastors have publicly expressed outrage over this very issue and they have a large following. I don’t know about the rest of the “South” but the Texas Black community is really rather complex and their “Churched” communities, both rural and urban, intentionally maintain a very low profile and are rather tight nit. Having spoken with many of them it seems they maintain this position because they tend to be the more successful members of the overall Black population. The company I work for recruits heavily from the “Churched” community.
