Do Black People Support Obama Because He’s Black?

Barack Obama American flag SC Do Black People Support Obama Because He’s Black?

Surviving slavery, segregation and discrimination has forged a special pride in African-Americans. Now some are saying this hard-earned pride has become prejudice in the form of blind loyalty to President Barack Obama.

Are black people supporting Obama mainly because he’s black? If race is just one factor in blacks’ support of Obama, does that make them racist? Can blacks’ support for Obama be compared with white voters who may favor his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, because he’s white?

These questions have long animated conservatives who are frustrated by claims that white people who oppose Obama’s policies are racist. This week, when a black actress who tweeted an endorsement of Romney was subjected to a stream of abuse from other African-Americans, the politics of racial accusation came full circle once again.

Stacey Dash, who also has Mexican heritage, is best known for the 1995 film “Clueless” and the recent cable-TV drama “Single Ladies.” On Twitter, she was called “jigaboo,” ”traitor,” ”house nigger” and worse after posting, “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future.”

The theme of the insults: A black woman would have to be stupid, subservient or both to choose a white Republican over the first black president.

    If blacks, and I use the word “blacks” loosely, at least those who vote for this half and half for no other reason than his hair is “curly”, and his skin is a little darker than those who are of the white persuasion, if the only reason they vote for him is that he is “dark”……..then they are RACIST, RACIST AND THEN, RACIST!!!! Because if I were to say that I am voting for Romney, which I am, but not because of his skin color, I am voting for him because I think he is FOR AMERICA AND FOR AMERICANS and I do not like what this “black” person has done to this nation, and how he has taken America on a downward spiral into debt, and apologized to our ENEMIES, the MU SLIMES, and ignored what happened to Ambassador Stephens in Libya, and is trying to emasculate our milirary, in more ways than one, and has gone out of his way to INSULT THEM IN THE PROCESS! I do not like this thing, this DISEASE in office for MANY reasons, and the least of which is his race, his skin color. I would have had NO problem with the color of his skin, IF HE HAD BEEN WHAT HE PROMISED TO BE! But he LIED OUT THE OLD WAZOO AND DID EVERYTHING BUT DO ANYTHING HE PROMISED…………EXCEPT to FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE OUR COUNTRY INTO SOME PLACE THAT WE CAN HARDLY RECOGNIZE ANYMORE! The racial division is the highest that I have personally ever seen it. At least as bad as, if not worse, than in the mid to late 20th century, the 1900′s. I was a child when most of this went on, but I have read the history of this time, and it was nasty. Right now, we are as close to this “nasty” as we have come in a long time. And, this is THANKS TO THE ENEMY WITHIN OUR MIDST, THE ENEMY THAT THOSE WHO DID NOT FIND OUT JUST WHO THEY WERE GIVING THEIR VALUABLE VOTES TO, AND FORCED THE WORST FOUR YEARS UPON THE REST OF US! And IF this is a repeat of 2008, this will become even WORSE than it has been for the PAST FOUR YEARS! We think we have problems now? If this MU SLIME is re-elected, then WE CAN LOOK FORWARD TO ANOTHER WORSE, AND DREADFUL, HORRIBLE, AWFUL FOUR, OR WORSE YEARS! And it will be the fault of those of you who are the “blind following the blind”, and following a DISEASED OF THE MIND, MU SLIME! Right into a hell of your own making. And you should be afraid, very afraid, because it, he, will turn on you just as quickly as he will on the rest of us, plus, you should be ashamed to even think of voting for this peice of slimey shit!

      As always love your comments.This Tarbaby has got to go for America to get to be a leader that has eroded us since he got selected.

    • Linda From NYC says:

      well said, disgusted, I feel the same way as you and I too will vote for Mitt then this muslim hitler. The fact that some of these blacks support this man is beyond me, and I can not understand it, these people that vote for this muslim hitler have to be real stupid and they don't care what he does to our country. If this loser is re-elected, we all know that he will destroy our country and change it to another third world country.

    Hell yes if he looked more white they'd sit on their asses and wouldn't even bother voting.But he promises them everything including the kitchen sink and they feel that because their great great great great grandparents were farm equipment on southern plantations that they deserve this free crap(Obuma phone,Food stamps)

  6. Does anyone have a better explanation? Many have become dependent on government these past 4 years. That's the same as being a slave to government. Slaves were generally loyal to whomever they were dependent regardless of their race. Just look at the increasing numbers on food stamps, the dole, welfare, and are jobless with no "hope" in sight. If there is a change in the WH that person is certainly inheriting a monumental mess. If the WH occupant stays the same, the outlook for our Constitution and Freedoms are bleek. Let's not make the same voting mistake, made four years ago, again. Surely everyone can learn from his mistakes. We must vote smarter this time around.

  7. Linda From NYC says:

    4 years ago a well known talk show host (black woman) introduce obama through her talk show and after he was elected I read that he ignore her and threw her under the bus. I haven't her a peep out of this woman supporting this muslim in this election, through her help in 2008 he got elected and now we are all paying for it and the reason he got supported 2008 is because he is black. First black man as president and he f@#ks it up.
