...Are black people supporting Obama mainly because he's black? If race is just one factor in blacks' support of Obama, does that make them racist? Can blacks' support for Obama be compared with white voters who may favor his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, because he's white?
...Stacey Dash, who also has Mexican heritage, is best known for the 1995 film "Clueless" and the recent cable-TV drama "Single Ladies." On Twitter, she was called "jigaboo," "traitor," "house nigger" and worse after posting, "Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future."
...Twitter users are by no means representative of America, and many black Obama supporters quickly denounced the attacks.

“...Are black people supporting Obama mainly because he’s black?”
Are there shootings at a BET awards show?
“many black Obama supporters quickly denounced the attacks...”
Many more didn’t.
Buddy of mine describes us as stupidists. Not stupidest although there have been times fueled by tegquilla but that’s another story. We won’t vote for certain people because they are stupid and the skin color doesn’t matter. Obama seems to fall in that category.
Now before the Racial Police come beating my door down to drag me away I would vote in a heartbeat for Dr. Thomas Sowell, Lt. Colonel Allen West, or Herman Cain. Educated men, not stupid men, who happen to have black skin.
LOL! Who mugged the AP?
I don’t understand why this topic keeps reappearing on Free Republic. It’s nonsense on stilts. We’ve run black GOP candidates against white Democratic candidates in districts with large black populations and gotten next to no black votes. If Obama were a RINO like Romney going up against a generic Democratic candidate of any race, he would get next to no black votes. Blacks support any given Democrat (including Obama) not because of the race of the candidate, but because Democrats support freebies and federally-mandated race preferences from education, hiring to conviction rates and sentencing in criminal trials. Why wouldn’t a black person support any given Democrat? For a black person to vote for the GOP would be like an aristocrat voting for the abolition of his perks and privileges.
do they support him because he;s not white[he;s not black]
DUH OF COURSE THEY DO , they’;re frigging idiots who have had their areas ruined, put on the crumbs the left throws out and only come out to vote for those who are not white.
I’m speaking about most as I know there are a few out there which have a brain and look at issues not color, something which MLK said to do and something which is ingored by the anti civil rights, party of KKK and party of slavery nad party of segregation Dem party
WHAT , WHAT’S THAT most Dem voters and blacks never knew the Dems history, well blow me down with a feather
You would think hussein would only get HALF the black support.
It’s all about bottom line pocketbook issues rather than the skin color of the political candidate. There’s also the issue of status. Black people want heroes outside of the sporting arena who share the same skin color. It gives them the illusion that they, too, could be somebody, if only they’d try a little harder. Remember the days when Rocky Marciano was the great white hope? Blacks want to have their equivalent of Rocky Marciano represented in every profession in the land - something that really isn’t possible without an assist, given the unbalanced distribution of raw intelligence among the races. At least not without legally-mandated racial quotas.
Precisely. If the race of the candidate were the deciding factor for black voters, that would be true. But it's not - an Obama running as a Romney clone on the GOP ticket would get 10% of the black vote.
