WASHINGTON (AP) When black voters gave President Barack Obama 93 percent support on Election Day in defiance of predictions that they might sit it out this year, black leaders breathed a collective sigh of relief.
That encouraged those leaders to try to leverage more attention from both Obama and Congress. Although they waver over how much to demand from the president particularly in light of defeated GOP challenger Mitt Romney's assertion that Obama gave "gifts" to minorities in exchange for their votes they are delivering postelection wish lists to the president anyway.
Blacks made up 13 percent of the electorate this year, about the same as 2008, while participation among whites shrank slightly to 72 percent and Hispanics increased to 10 percent, national exit polls showed. Black leaders point to that minority participation as they sharpen their calls for initiatives to address black unemployment, which was 12.7 percent when Obama took office, peaked at 16.5 percent roughly a year later, and stood at 14.3 percent in October. The overall unemployment rate is 7.9 percent.
The enthusiasm of black women was demonstrated in Florida when more than 250 churches marched their congregations to the polls as part of the "Souls To the Polls" early voting campaign, said Melanie Campbell, president and CEO of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation. A large percentage of the marchers were women, Campbell said.

A great movement of "a" spirit moved upon our nation.
Here comes Bama Claus,
Here comes Bama Claus,
Right down Bama Claus lane
large majority of activists are (black) women....
who have been trained the last 50 years to see government and now Obama as the family breadwinner.
Margaret Sanger must be laughing her ass off in Hell.
"You guys have been practicing discrimination for years. Now it is our turn."
- From Chapter VI, Men in Black by Mark Levin
We is in charge now.
That’s what a black supervisor once told me, and he was right.
Promotions based on race, hiring based on race, scholarships based on race,Helath care based on race.
It’s just the beginning folks.
African Americans will be now dutifully ignored for the next three and a half years. The definition of insanity comes to mind here.
So the ‘black activist’ comes home smiling after talking to a politician and her boy/girl friend asks her why...
she replies: “The politician says I’se impo’tant!”
(Changing the doctor in the old joke to a politician).
My point is they’re impotent and don’t realize it.
They’ll get nothing but a false high opinion of themselves.
Wonder what their reaction will be when the brother in chief can’t deliver.
“The white man kept him down”.
Sorry Black voters. You have served your purpose by giving 90+% support to the Democrats. Now please sit down and don’t make any trouble. You will get no concessions, no help, nothing.
But remember to vote Democrat in 2014.
I know what you mean, but seriously the sad fact is there is absolutely no one laughing in hell. those past days are like an eternity ago, and will never come again for anyone there.
Blacks still voting for melanin content and undeliverable promises.
The highest unemployment rate of any group in the U.S... Yeah, Barack has done wonders for his most faithful constituency.
If you voted for Obama, you deserve the misery that you get. Unfortunately, the rest of us who didn’t vote for him are also along for the ride.
Thats what a black supervisor once told me, and he was right.
When white voters sit out elections while black voters show up en masse to support the winning candidate, we shouldn't be surprised when they start making demands.
Sitting at home on your ass has consequences.
Many of them can’t even see they need to lift themselves up ( this is mostly payback). It falls in line with the same radical teachings they are being told. ( The nation was built on the brow of slavery and they did not get a FAIR SHARE in the beginning. It’s more welfare checks they want. The are owed this) The dems have brainwashed people. The new democratic party is a cult. The modern republican party is cowardly and corrupt who have a message they refuse to adhere to. The good souls are holding what tiny thread there is remaining to society.
He has promised to get even with the evil white devils who are responsible for their misery. The last thing they want to do is to admit that they are responsible for their positions in life.
A second term for our first affirmative action president...
“Souls to the polls”?
Whatever happened to black Christianity?
I guess it’s for abortion, same-sex marriage, and anti-semitism.
Nothing takes precedence over the melanin content...
Well gosh, it seems that the next logical step would be a federally funded elite paramilitary group with spiffy uniforms, guns, truncheons, and trained dogs. I mean heck, what better way to “leverage one’s loyalty”.
What ever happened to Black Christianity(and the Left split of many denominations)? This:
Dr. Harry F. Ward - the known communist Red Dean of Union Theological Seminary - NYC
Founding home of: Womanist Theology (Feminists), Mujerista Theology (Latino), annnnnnnd
Dr. James H. Cone - The Charles H. Briggs Professor of Systematic Theology Union Theological Seminary, founder of Black Liberation Theology who influenced:
Paraphrase: “Your Christianity is not necessarily our Christianity” - Rev. Jeremiah Wright
Rev. Jeremiah Wright - Black racist expositor of Black Liberation Theology and mentor of Dear Leader who admits that after 23 years wasnt sure if he had converted Dear Leader to his form of Christianity and introduced him to BLT.....and that aint bacon, lettuce and tomato.
About minute 4:15
Dr. James H. Cone
Leaving us with a Islamic-Black Liberationist-CommUnitarian leading us into a land of di-versity of faith traditions.
I should’ve added “figuratively speaking”.
More than likely, she’s full of useless regret.
Just wait for your banker to start rapping at you. ...Now that we is in charge, wes go t ma this pla a suksess li Afreeka.
So it wasn't an “assertion” it's a fact that Obama promised and minorities expect those “freebies”.
That only works so long. Eventually, even blacks will expect dear leader to deliver on his promises.
Since we are going to need scads of new doctors under obamacare, just confer medical doctorates on all unemployed black people. That would be a nice gift from obama.
Ha, that would never occur. Sooner the dollar presses would continue to the point of a week’s wages needing a wheelbarrow to carry.
Never underestimate how handy a convenient enemy is.
Hos, one and all.
LOL. The laugh is on them. He doesn’t need them anymore! The only skill they had that he needed was to vote and they did. Mene,Mene,Tekel,Upharsin. The moving hand having rit moves on. Now he knows he doesn’t need actual people to go to the polls they are just a burden he doesn’t want or need. Outside of serving in the DHS they are useless. Of course, he will need some way to “manage” them. “The Trains”, probably. I think I can hear them now...
Barack might not, but Democrats in general will. If Democrats see him spoiling their pie, they will fall away from him in double quick time.
In a matter of only four years, the United States of America, the nation of Washington, Adams, and countless other visionaries, has been transformed into a backward, corrupt, Africa-style sh*t hole sliding down the hopper of history.
“If you voted for Obama, you deserve the misery that you get. Unfortunately, the rest of us who didnt vote for him are also along for the ride.”
I’ve been saying the same thing ever since the “election,” but you word it so much better than I do.
These faith traditionalists need to learn and experience the Magna Carta and try to fit in with it as that is the basis for modern man, his creativity , innovation and inventions
Inventions... everything from cadillacs to color TV.
Show me another civilization that has had this success.
I seriously believe they don’t ‘get it’.
From what I’ve seen, since 2008, they’re just digging ‘the power’ they ~think~ they have and have been treating white people shamelessly.
The Wal*Mart strip mall is next to what used to be McMansions that are now mostly Section 8 housing.
After his first win, if you walked the strip mall instead of driving to where you needed to go, you were howled at and harassed by ‘yutes’ wearing their “OBAMA” shirts and hoodies.
It was nothing to hear “We in charge, now!”.
It’s settled down somewhat since then but I still don’t go there without hubby or the Dobermann with me.
It’s bad enough we have to deal with the nasty employees and ‘queens’ inside the stores.
I don’t think they understand how life works at all.
The only thing that matters is that check at the first of the month.
They believe they “deserve” it.
What will the REAL (not cooked) black unemployment rate be in 4 years? Predictions?
The Dems own you.
You’ll vote for them next time even if they use you to wipe their butts.
Name me ONE stable thriving all-black country in Africa.
he’ll give the more free abortions.
True, if anything Obama has thrown them under the bus, the Democrats have nullified the voice of blacks, they no longer have a say, they can vote Democrat all they want, it won’t make a difference, they are no longer a player, the other minorities have usurped their platform, Compton ain’t black no more, the movie “Colors” and the riots of the nineties look like they were something from another dimension, in a short twenty years illegals and others have changed vast swathes of the American landscape, blacks are taken for granted by the Democrats, they see them as their sole property.
Sorry I stepped on ya. I searched for “Black” and “Voters” before I posted and didn’t see yours.
“What will the REAL (not cooked) black unemployment rate be in 4 years? Predictions?”
The same as whites? >sad< (both as high)
