You are firmly mistaken! Willie check your history, at the turn of the century blacks not only were overwhelmingly Republicans they also were the majority in Congress and the house of Representatives. This was the way things were up until the twenties! So what happened? For another fifty years there were lynchings and hate crimes and the good Ole Party abandoned the same people who made their party what it is today! History will reveal that In the sixties and seventies blacks were not even allow on the Convention floor of either party! However, the Democratic Pary became the party that came to the aide of social injustice. Had this been the Republicans then we would not be having this conversation. So the real question should be why are blacks left out when it comes to power brokers blacks are view as low level bottom feeders. With the exception of George Bush who used Condeliza Rice there has never been a Republican Party Candidate other than coming from the grand state of Texas who recognized that blacks are more than servants in this world. We can and sometimes do make a difference in this world! I have been voting Independent for twenty years and I am not a registered Democrat. But as all whites believe black folks will sell their votes to any ole democrat for two chicken dinners and a "We shall overcome" song. This only proves that whites who as a voting majority and voted a mentally challenged Republican into office almost eight year's ago rather than a man of good moral character in the name of Al Gore. One could make the same assessment about whites huh? Now as for me I would rather use my vote and vote for the best man for the job! I voted for Ross Perot. George Bush Senior. And I am sorry to say Bill Clinton. Which when you think about the mess we as a country are in now, it doesn't leave much to be desired in the category of white candidates in this election now does it? It will however determine whether whites are going to do the usual polarizing and galvinizing to keep Obama out of office in the States where we can already see that he is having an impact on. Face it, racism has done more damage to this country than should have been allowed and is steadily on the rise as poverty among whites increases, blacks and not wealthy whites will get the blame for this economic mess! this is already being felt in michigan where the shrinking job market is impacting racial views and the law. Afirmative Action went under attack a year ago and was voted out of Michigan where it is needed more than in the state of MISSISSIPPI! Remember there were more lynchings in this state than in the south ! Once the job market is completely gone from tis state blacks will get the blame from poor whites who will also be in the streets seeking employment and expecting to get jobs based on priveleges of color rather than performance. But blame should be placed squarely on William Jefferson Clinton for signing this NAFTA Agreement for the rich to move jobs out of the country make more money and sell out the middle class and remove over 2million jobs to other country for the sake of Corporate profits and greed. Whites in this country are not going to wake up from their nightmarish race based mistakes until it's too late and their family's are destroyed in the same manner that black families are being targeted by courts police and politics today! Once the divide has affected their earning power, first race enters the picture and these "all black folks stick together" questions begin to surface. I will only tell you that historically whites continue to betray the black man and it really does not matter which party it is. But there is a developed trust by Democrats that is tested over the last forty years! Once the Republican Party stops using their attack dogs District Judges (Republican in number), the police and Stop jailing blacks for profit. We commit 37% of crimes in America but are receiving 95% of the sentences. Then you will see a change in this trend once again. There is no cure for hate xcept love. We all are Americans at the end of the day. However, it will take whites another 100 years and some serious self introspection to realize this fact! It's too bad that the best candidate in this election happens to be of mixed race. Now we will see for certain once again if the same holds true for whites! Will they vote as a bloc to circumvent the more obvious choice or rather put another Dynasty of the Clintons back in office to keep things as they are. Namely, the destruction of the middle class which includes all of us!
