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.

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.
