If black turnout falls, Obama could struggle [Why would anyone of any color vote for him again?]
Newsday ^ | 7/18/13 | SUZANNE GAMBOA

Posted on 07/18/2012 2:10:19 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

One of the country's oldest civil rights groups says President Barack Obama may have a tougher time winning at least three battleground states in November should black voter turnout fall 5 percentage points or more below the record levels that helped to put him in the White House.

Black turnout of 64.7 percent was a significant factor in 2008, and African-Americans are considered solidly behind Obama. But having achieved the milestone of electing the nation's first black president, those black voters who support him may be less motivated to return in droves again, the National Urban League said in a report yesterday.

If only Alan Keyes could work on his black dialect and become a republican again he could run around the country and tell black Americans the truth about the democrats.

Why would anyone of any color vote for him again?]

Because if you're black skin color is not the most important thing, it's the ONLY thing that matters.

Blacks have been hurt by Pelosi-Reid-Obama-nomics more than anyone. Or much more than those whites "clinging to their guns and Bibles". Median black household wealth won't buy a 10-year old Toyota Corolla. There is a "murder a day" in Chicago and New York. Overall black unemployment is nearly twice that of whites. And blacks still overwhelmingly support Zero and the Democrats in congress.

The triumph of hope over experience!

They would vote because they are stupid and/or uninformed and there are many many whites who are just as stupid/uninformed.

If a lie, or lies, are big enough, many will believe them. It’s harder to believe anyone could tell whoppers as big as the Obamanation’s.

Not to mention the fact that stealing votes will be upheld again by holder. Romney had better win by a landslide if he has any hope of winning this.

That's easy. Thanks to the democrat party, about 80% or more of blacks choose to be ignorant and racists. Voting for, or sticking by their own is what they do, regardless of ANY circumstances. Until more of them start actually thinking for themselves, and reject wholesale a large part of black culture and the black victimhood attitude, this is what they will do, unfortunately. See Marion Barry as a good example or analogy, or most black run cities in the United States.

Things like, are they better off, are they more free, are they less oppressed, do they have jobs, etc, never enter into it.

One thing has become clear over the past 3.7 years and that is... one thing that the black community loves more than large government programs that are only for minorities, grants, welfare programs, subsidized housing and free health care... all financed by somebody else’s stash... is the color of their skin. They will vote for obama in the same percentages as before and they will do it because he is black. They have said it many times in the media. Who are spike lee, morgan freeman, lawrence fishburne, colon powell, whoopi goldberg, chris rock, sheila jackson lee, maxine waters, louis farakhan, al sharpton, jesse jackson and others going to vote for? If they do not stay home... and they will not... neither will the community as a whole.

I predict blacks will both stay home and vote for Obama in lower numbers. I am ready to be ridiculee come November if I’m wrong.

The biggest losses in black support are going to come from the South, believe it or not, which is culturally more conservative that the urban north.

Black Christian ministers are appalled by Obama’s support of gay marriage. Let’s not forget that.

Three polls in three southern states — North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia — found black support falling to 77 to 79 percent. Those are catatrosphic losses from the Democratic party.

The actual black vote may be a higher percentage of support for Obama, but overall support within the black community will be lower because blacks against Obama’s homosexual agenda are going to stay home. A prominent black minister in Prince Georges County, Maryland has made just that point.

Losses in Northern and Western states are going to come from the one-third of the black community that has not been destroyed by Democratic welfare plantation anti-family policies. This are often blacks living in the suburbs. They have intact families and productive lives. This is where Obama is losing support.

There used to be a tee shirt design that I saw my students wearing when I was teaching in a 99% black school in Brooklyn during the mid 80’s. The saying on the shirt said, “It’s a Black thing; you wouldn’t understand.”

Think about how polarizing such a saying is. Think how deadening to all discussion, how closing-of-the-mind to any and all alternatives, how numbing to the thinking of a young person. Such a philosophy reduces the practitioner to a zealot, a militant, an extremist. No hope of reasoning with such a mind; no chance of appealing to common sense. Any argument that supports this simple tenet is approved; any that opposes or casts uncertainty is easily rejected: “You don’t understand.” Simple, quick, final. The wielder of such rhetoric will always stride off firmly convinced with all certainty they are in the right. The vanquished, hopelessly lost (”I couldn’t reason with THEM—they don’t understand.”) Checkmate.

This type of training of too many young, black minds has been going on in schools, in popular culture, in religious institutions, in public discourse for 4 decades now.

And the saying has become true today: It’s a Black thing; I wouldn’t understand.

It is...and I don’t.

They will vote for Obama out of hate, not out of love for their community. Blacks can't even agree what it it means to be black or if Obama is true African American, what they can agree on is that he is not totally white and therefore more like them. They hate white people they are taught to hate from their birth and it is reinforced with many black movies, music and books. White people are the reason their life is bad, they can't find a good job, their neighborhood is terrible, that their cousin died violently. While education, Christianity and a good nature might do much to counteract that influence it is there curled up like a rattlesnake in the heart dripping poison. Blacks will vote for him because he is not white, it won't matter to the majority that he is a socialist train wreck for black communities and doesn't keep his word.

The internal polls must be frightening to the Left. They keep talking about “what if” on the Black vote. “What if”? on the Black vote for a putative Black Democrat? The internals MUST be scaring them to death!

Interesting charts. I wonder what the charts would look like now that Obamugabe has had three years to make the 2009 numbers look good by comparison.

They see, but being the freeloaders that MOST blacks are, they don't care.

Every recent "flash mob" of teens that are robbing and destroying stores are all {insert the forbidden word}.

In the words of malik zulu shabazz, leader of the new black panthers, "moochelle and the girls should leave this nigger" and so should the black voters.

If Obamugabe loses black support in the South, though, it won’t matter because he is expected to lose those states anyway. I want him to lose black support in the other regions of the nation.

The rats hide their fraud by claiming that they get 95% support and 100% turnout from the black vote.

That allows them to manufacture votes.

There was a woman on WLS radio last week who explained that all Whites were racist. She said she would be voting for Obama because he’s black. When prompted, she said it wouldn’t matter if he had robbed a bank or killed someone. People of color will vote for Obama because he’s black...
96% of Black voters and Black churches supported Obama despite his anti-Christian views on abortion and separation of church and state because of his color... I predict 4% may fall away this election cycle although it won’t make a significant dent due to election fraud.

"If you voted for Obama to prove that you're not racist, vote for someone else to prove you're not a fool" works for non-blacks. We need something as simple and pointed that blacks can relate to. Suggestions solicited, especially from our respected black FReepers..

The brother made promises to you. How many has he kept?
Has the brother in the White House helped you be any better off than you were four years ago?
