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.

The article is actually from a website called theroot.com.

To give you an idea of where they’re coming from, here’s another of their articles, citing the ‘racism’ of calls to repeal the anchor-baby angle to the 14th Amendment:

Just so you don’t think they are a fringe site in the black community, here’s another take on the ‘racism’ in addressing anchor babies:

Wow, support among blacks dropped down to 85% and that was during the Sherrod incident. In other words, support dropped when blacks didn’t feel zer0 was being black enough.

Racism is what defines these people.

Is the sky blue? Is Obama half black?

Actually he is a quarter black. His father was half African and half Arab.

If they supported OJ Simpson by 90%, what does that tell you?

My understanding of the OJ mentality was that even if, and actually ESPECIALLY IF he actually did it,

his acquittal was PAYBACK.

Yeah, whitey was gonna pay bigtime one way or another with that one. I’m amazed they finally nailed him after 15 years of nearly constant crime spree after he killed them too.

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

Using race to hide criminality is what is 'strong' with 'his' followers.

There isn't a one of them that wouldn't throw a 'brotha' under the bus. Whether you are 'white', or 'black' or 'brown', unless you swear allegiance and all your support to the 'throne', you are gone.

This 'color' thing merely clouds the issue. It is the intent of the 'soul' and not the color of the 'shell' that holds it.

Let's give TRANSPARENCY back it's true meaning.

WE CAN see through the shell, Obama, and see what's inside. THAT is what we object to, and not the color of your shell.

Listening to the comments and callers on urban talk radio

Is that what those guys with the 2000-watt subwoofers are listening to as they drive around with the sheet metal vibrating and the trim falling off their cars?

Everyone is speaking of the blacks as a monolithic group which is not true. We share many values and beliefs with middle class blacks.

It's the black underclass that harbors the hatred of anything/everything white and it's primarily these people we will fight the racial war against.

I'll add one caveat for the people who attend the black liberation churches. These are the educated people who also hate anything white.

Is Obama half black?

The only half of Obama that is 'black' is his 'better half', Michelle.

Obama might be correctly termed 'African-American'.

After all, one of his parents was an American citizen, and one an African citizen. He certainly has more right to be called African-American than any 'black' person living in the U.S.

Quck question....call me a dummy, that’s o.k., but my question is.........why is there a “Black Christian” web publication. If I remember correctly Jesus said that in Him there is no color, tribe, or nation but that all who follow Him are ONE PEOPLE.

Oh, that’s right, I forget........it’s sort of an “American Black” thing.

I think there is a big difference between 'black', 'Black', 'African-American', and 'negro'.

The biggest problem is that the solution to erasing discrimination was determined to be giving one 'group' a new 'name'.

It helps the politicians keep the 'groups' inline.

It is more democrap party allegiance than racial allegiance. But then the democrap party leadership herd black people by using racial division, so perhaps it is one and the same. And now Harry ‘the undertakewr’ Reid is proving the democraps are trying to play the same manipualtive hate card with Hispanics! I wonder, will Hispanics be more alert than black people to this condescending manipulation, or will they too be herded like good sheeple into blind allegiance to the race hustling democraps?

Change #2 on your list. Doesn't have to be Africans -- Carribean blacks and American blacks do not get along well either.

Ther reasoning that I hear is that Carribean/Africans are "not authentic blacks", or some such nonsense. Usually you hear this when an African or Carribean who, after a few years of living in America, is running circles around the American blacks who have been here for hundreds of years.

"How can that be in a racist America?", the black American would say. So instead of answering that question honestly, the immigrant black is simply deemed "not authentic", and it's back to the "racist America is responsible for my woes" excuses.

No, but some of the same radio stations have a part-time talk format. These programs are worth tracking down as a view into an alternate reality where whitey thinks about nothing else but keeping the black man, woman and child down, where there are never enough handouts, where just about any crime is excused as part of racial victimhood.

There is some bad craziness out there. Not all black Americans subscribe to this craziness, but enough of them do. At some point, they're going to realize that the rest of the country got tired of listening to the whining and moved on, leaving them behind to marinate in their own sour mindset.

Try this station: http://wvon.com/

Like the Obamas. Hating whitey is not just for the underclass.
