Is Racial Allegiance Keeping Obama's Approval Rating High Among Black People?
Black Christian News ^ | 8/11/10 | Cord Jefferson

Posted on 08/11/2010 8:52:31 AM PDT by Recovering_Democrat

Beginning last week, President Obama's approval rating is now the lowest it's ever been, with just 45 percent of Americans saying they're satisfied with the job he's doing, according to Gallup...Yet as supporters peel away by the day, one group has yet to significantly give up on the president: African Americans. Though Obama no longer enjoys the 96 percent black approval of months past, he's still never known what it's like to not have the support of at least 80 percent of African American voters. Currently, more than nine out of 10 blacks polled approve of Barack Obama's job performance, a bounce back from a year low of 85 percent following the Sherrod dustup.

I don't agree with everything in this article, but it is an interesting read, particulary since it is posted on an obstensibly Christian site.

Unreal.

Imagine if a crackah president always had 90% approval ratings because he was white.

What a sick, perverse, delusional, and STUPID world.

If asked by a pollster they answer positively, but do they have enough enthusiasm to get up and go to the polls? I doubt it.

I have never had a second thought that this was not the case.Americans are stupid when it comes to race issues. Blacks have been programmed to think this way and there is not changing those especially the lesser educated ones. They are always critical of any black that sees or thinks differently and the term racist is a term that is used to have their way and the Democrat Party plays it like a drum.

The biggest open secret in American society today is black racism against white people. Two days ago, I spoke with one of our town’s park employees. He had been called out to repair the splash pad at one of our parks. There was a black family there waiting to use the pad, along with about 50 white people. He was called, to his face, a racist, with the claim that the splash pad had been turned off deliberately because there were black people there. The worker’s claim that this was plumbing issue, not a race issue, were met with strong denials.

We are not a United States until this crap stops.

racial allegience? How about calling it what it really is: RACISM...

If a white person voted for another white person because they were white they would be called racists...

The truth is...racism is strong with his followers...

Mostly, the cause is ignorance. They know not what is happening, much less what they did.

That is taking the group as a whole and omitting the enlightened and the radicals

There is a problem here and we all know it. We do need to keep in perspective the fact that only 1 in 10 citizens are Black, and that this isn’t going to blow polls out by that much. Of course that’s as long as the polls don’t over sample in heavily Black areas.

It's not just because he's black, it's also because he's a big supporter of handouts to blacks.

If he were conservative, many would denigrate him as an Uncle Tom.

Obama supporters want stuff!

Their favorite political chant is "GIMME!"

The answer is a resounding “Yes” but consider this as food for thought.

While Zero’s lost weekend playing pickup basketball got all sorts of attention, much of it not good, how do you think it played with his base? So is he politically tone deaf, or crazy like a fox?

I’ve concluded that he’s concluded that as long as his peeps are down with him, he’s politically untouchable. So never mind what us crackers think, it’s all about keeping it real with the homies. Could probably say the same thing about Mooch-elle’s wonderful Spanish adventure.

Yep. Sadly, for far too many blacks, it wouldn't matter what Obama did. He's skin is dark, so they'll keep supporting him.

Sadly, Martin Luther King's dream is farther from becoming a reality than it ever was.

Unless, of course, there is a rumor of free government money being handed out at the polls

Yup. This is racism at its peak.

So, we have to ask... who is guilty in keeping it alive?

Its too bad they couldnt vote for the man and his policies, but then again the rest of America was duped too.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

If it is allegiance to the white race it is racism. The black race is by definition not capable of being racist even if they go out and night and shoot any cracker they happen to see.

"...Is Racial Allegiance Keeping Obama's Approval Rating High Among Black People?.."

When "racial allegiance" enables a significant portion of the black "blogosphere" to openly rationalize their admiration for Omar Thornton, I'd say the answer to that question is... well, DUH!!!

Two groups who have learned to use their skin-color as an excuse for their behavior.

There are many 'groups' around the world, and some use religion, not race, as the excuse.

It's sad, but predictable that these same people willing to support a president who does not give a damn about them will later believe convoluted conspiracy theories about how Obama was prevented from helping them because of the continued evil of white people.

Listening to the comments and callers on urban talk radio is like listening in to another planet--Obama can do no wrong.

Even worse is how one wonders why blacks can be so favorable to a guy who believes in the unrestricted entry of illegal immigrants, who comprise a great deal of these people who are racist against blacks, into this country.
