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?

Yes and yes.
Just ax ‘em.
I read in a recent news article in the Rochester NY, D&C newspaper that they interviewed on black woman from the city, unemployed, low income, single mom who is voting for Obama.
Name: Jada Prescott
Registered as: Democrat
Resides in: Rochester
Voting for: Undecided/Obama
Jada Prescott, 22, will vote for Obama in November.
She said she doesnt think Romney is going to do whats best for the people. If youre going to tax the middle class for something that the higher class and rich people can pay, thats just going to put us more in poverty because thats money that we dont have, Prescott said.
Prescott, a single mom who is currently unemployed, said the Affordable Care Act will be a big help to her. Shes worried about losing healthcare if Romney wins and rolls back healthcare provisions in the new law.
Im really dependent on these types of things to kind of help me keep myself up above water, she said. It would really set me back.
This kind of says it all, doesn’t it?
Yes. Nothing else matters.
I’ve been told, and heard, so many times, it’s really a common fact, and I believe it that the only people are racist are white. No, they vote for him because they believe in his agenda. And they aren’t racist, because black people are immune, they don’t see color, they are rainbow people. White’s are the only ones who can be racist. I heard it on the news.
Watch you talking bout Willis?
Jay Z says so.
Color has nothing to do with why I’m voting...period. Every time the left brings this meme up it makes my head explode.
Sounds like she doesn’t want to pull herself out of the deep end of the pool.
“...it has less to do with the candidate than with his party’s treatment of Obama...”
Absolute BS! “O” is getting the same treatment every single President of this country ever gets from the opposition.
Have minority voters never heard or seen the way Liberals behaved to either of the Bush Presidents?
It’s called POLITICS... if it is too hot for you in the kitchen, GET OUT!!
Clinton got 83 percent of the black vote in 1992 and 84 percent in 1996; the third-party candidate Ross Perot probably sliced away some of Clinton's black support.
“...the way Liberals behaved to either of the Bush Presidents?”
That used to really get under my skin, but you are right, too hot...get out!
Awhile back I asked the question “Why does having black skin color mean you automatically have to be a socialist?”
A poster responded that back in its heyday, the Soviet Union had propagandized Southern big-city blacks to help start a race war. Looks like they did one hell of a job.
How many heads you got?
Is the Pope Catholic?
That and the free "Obamaphone"...
Yes, I know that's the exact opposite of what MLK said. If he had known what was coming, he would have said "Shoot me now."
The statistics on that are clear.
Prior to Obama maybe 90% of Blacks voted for Democrats.
With Obama 92% of Blacks vote for Obama.
The only logical conclusion is that Blacks only vote for Obama because he is Black.
Just as non-minorities are labeled racist for criticizing 0bama, minorities deserve the label racist for favoring him.
That was funny...
What rock did this person just crawl out from under?
If the race was between Allen West and Hillary Clinton, or Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid, for whom do you think blacks would vote?
A pandering lefty who would continue the handouts - that’s who they would vote for.
"If you truly believe in the brotherhood of man, then you must believe that blacks are just as capable of being racists as whites are."
Imagine where this country would be if we just all thought of each other as Americans. Generally speaking (95% of the African American Voters), blacks don't want to be recognized simply as equal Americans. Why not?
Can you imagine if a politician, regardless of race or sex suggested that no government form was allowed to list, track or keep statistics on whites and non-whites; that from now on all people in America will be tracked as citizens or non-citizens and we won't recognize race at all?
There would be riots. Most Minorities (95% of African American voters) are somehow proud of the victim status they maintain with a simple ethnic label.
Look at the quote above and see if it makes any sense when you remove all racial references. Any decision or opinion that is swayed simply by the color of skin is prejudice (pre-judging). Not all pre-judging is bad. Think of the college kid with glasses, a pocket protector, a bunch of pens and a scientific calculator carrying a computer case on a college campus. Would you assume this is a book-smart person at least? You have pre-judged and there is nothing wrong with that. Same goes in the other direction when you see a group of African American youth wearing all black, tattoos, pants low, baggy clothes, hats worn sideways flashing gangsigns at each other on a downtown street corner in a rough part of town late at night. Would you ask them to walk your dog? You've also pre-judged.
Until the victim culture in this country changes and some racial segments of the population begin to take pride in making their own success, it will never change. And democrats will shamelessly USE their own self image against them to keep them down.
DA-MAN is not WHITEY. DA-MAN is Liberalism.
Bump! Dr. Sowell doesn’t mince his words.
Only Whites can be RACISTS...Blacks support blacks because they have to get even with 'WHITEY'!!
Does a bear scat in the woods?
Is there any other other reason to support him?
No. They support him because he is a Dem and at least 90% of blacks are Dems.
If any other president had numbers as bad as obamas, would that president get 47% of the vote...Unemployment above 8.3 percent for over 40 consecutive months, gasoline above $4.00 a gallon, 47 million recipients on food stamps and the national debt now above $16 trillion. Who would/could get reelected with those kind of pathetic numbers...seriously. The state of nation is alarming if this president is even considered a viable option.
What’s black and white and red all over?
Barack H. Obama
You stole that.
I can’t even count the number of the man-on-the-street interviews where black people said the only reason they voted for Hussein is “because he’s black”. Lovely that we have so many deep thinkers who could vote on election day. God help us all.
Just wait for the tacit approval of the race riots post election if Romney wins. The make will be that it's just the masses expressing their disappointment with the election and should be understood and we should give them money to quiet them down.
“If the race was between Allen West and Hillary Clinton, or Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid, for whom do you think blacks would vote?”
Yours is the exception that proves the rule.
Blacks would vote for Clinton in your example because Alan West would be labeled an “Uncle Tom”, an “oreo”. He wouldn’t get much black support.
Blacks will support the black every time, with one proviso: if the black in question is not perceived as being “one of them” (i.e., the “Tom” scenario), they will “vote liberal over black”.
Thus the black backlash against Clarence Thomas, who was viewed by blacks as being a puppet of the evil Republicans.
Blacks aren’t 100% united in this behavior — there is a distinct but small cohort of blacks who seem to think more independently, and who try to escape the “racial gravitational pull” that draws the majority of blacks into a cultural world that is pointedly “non-Euro”. We saw that in 2008, when McCain won about 5% of the black vote. This time, Romney may win a little more, but it won’t be much — Obama will still win over 90% of blacks, maybe more.
There may be a number of blacks who are disenchanted with Obama and won’t vote for him again, but I doubt they will vote for Romney. They’ll sit it out instead.
Probably more Blacks turned out to vote in 2008 because Obama was Black or half-Black. But how is that different from Catholics turning out for Kennedy, Southerners for Carter, or Greeks for Dukakis? Ethnic voting has a very long tradition in the US. But I guess if White people are accused of being racist for not supporting Obma, turnabout is fair play.
I am going to vote for the white guy.
different qestion, same answer
did most black registered dimocrats vote for Obama in the 2008 dim primaries, and few black registered dimocrats vote for Hillary
