This is the title of the new program being launched by Obama and it ticks me off like nothing else.

http://www.prisonplanet.com...

What if Romney launched a "Whites for Romney" campaign? OMG the outrage on the left would be disgusting. He'd be called a racist and a bigot among other things yet Obama can do it just fine.

The media bias is disgusting.
The race card is trite and is starting to tick me off.

African Americans are for Obama o the tune of about 90%. So what? As for the rest, get used to it, African Americans are special and need help that is why they need Affirmative action, special chamber of commerce and advocacy groups. At least that is the progressive position.

I know and its infuriating.

Can you imagine the fallout if Santorum or Romney launched a "Whites for ____" program? It would be deafening.

I wish they would start one so they could point across the table and say "you're doing it why not us?"

But the answer would be "Cuz you're white"... Ugh

Blacks will never vote for a White candidate when a black is running against him. Of course, they trend STRONGLY democratic anyway.

LOL Santorum basically said Catholics for Liberty and they damn near lynched him. He was good on This Week this morning (that just sounds odd).

They're like lemmings! Why didn't 98.7% of whites vote for McCain yet 98.7% of blacks voted for Obama? ... that says something.

As somebody mentioned before, black Americans tend to vote Democrat, which fascinates me. That said, there is a sizeable black-conservative base, and a larger black-libertarian base on the rise.

You have to take into consideration the choices in candidates too back in '08. Black voters for McCain? Come on, the guy is a joke. Back then Obama had a lot of people in a daze. A lot of people fell for the Hopey Changey nonsense. It wasn't only the fact that he was black, but that he ran against McCain specifically.

I think if somebody like Ron Paul were to get the nomination, you would see at least a 30% defection from Obama to Paul amongst the black demographic.

Of course we all know there are the racist one's who are going to stick with Obama just because he's black and because they are hopelessly misinformed. But f*ck them, you can have them. I'm more interested in intelligent black voters who care more about their personal freedom than the color of the president.

Why have an advocacy group/ force for this? Just use your Super PACs (kidding). However, I will say that I was on Facebook on Obama's page, and the African Americans for Obama post was up, and it had EXACTLY 19,999 likes. I am kidding you not.

So, I thought that "hey more voters for Obama. Appealing to a group. That's fine." So I liked the post, and I kid you not, I was the exact 20,000th person to like it. That was AWESOME!

Until the New Deal blacks were mainly Republican. After the Civil Rights Act, they jumped to Democrats once the Republicans started capitalizing on the Southern Strategy. Since then, it's mainly been the stigma of being the "anti-minority" party (true or not) that has kept conservative blacks from being more active in that party than they otherwise would.

For instance, the black community, from what I've read, is no more supportive of gay rights than the general population, when you'd expect them to be higher because more register as democrat.

Um, a higher % of Republicans voted for the Civil Rights act than Democrats

The original House version;

Democratic Party: 61% (152)
Republican Party: 80% (138)

Cloture in the Senate;

Democratic Party: 66% (44)
Republican Party: 82% (27)

The Senate version;

Democratic Party: 69% (46)
Republican Party: 82% (27)

The Senate version, voted on by the House;

Democratic Party: 63% (153)
Republican Party: 80% (136)

Also there was only 1 southern republican senator, and 10 southern republican congressmen; the Democrats were way more popular in the south, with 94 congressmen and 21 senators.

The reasons why more Republicans voted for this act was because of the Southern Democrats, who were more conservative than the general Democratic party. Then after the Civil Rights Act, the Democrats for the most part became Republican. This is why the South is now a major GOP base. This DOES NOT mean that the GOP is racist, I doubt they are. I am just saying that the Democrat to Republican conversion made the South controlled by the GOP.

However Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton were still Democrats from the South though that favored the Civil Rights Act and aren't racists. Many party leaders from the modern day are not racist, although party leaders from the 1960s sometimes were (such as George Wallace).

I don't know, I don't really see a problem with this. Seems like a waste of time and resources for an administration that will have the support of this demo regardless.

Seems perfectly fair for a specific minority group to largely support a similar minority individual though. I'd expect the same type of support by Mormons of Mitt Romney. Similarly, the demographic of ornery white people whose ideas might sound good in theory but don't work out in the real world, should logically support Ron Paul.
