    Because the Democrats are such great con artists that they've convinced Blacks that they should all vote Democrat while they haven't helped them ar all except o put a few token Blacks in office.

    Probably because they havent forgotten or forgiven the WHITE TRASH that held them in bondage.  Who now all happen to be republicans who haven't evolved and are hoping human bondage will make a comeback.

    Because Hillary and friends have been so convincing in their phony befriending of black folk.

    How did she endure standing so close to Wal-Mart shoppers? Lol!

    because Black Lives actually matter to the GOP.

    It's because the Republicans have knowingly and willingly positioned themselves against the legitimate rights of black people.

    In 1948, Humphrey made a speech in favor of Civil rights. Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms bolted the party and ran for POTUS under the Dixiecrat banner. Segregation forever. They joined the Republican Party. In 1964, the Godfather of the modern conservative movement, Barry Goldwater voted against the Civil Rights Act. In `968, Nixon made a speech saying that Strom Thurmond was not a racist. He created the Southern strategy and won the Presidency. 

    When the Democrats were throwing off their racist past, the Republicans picked it up. The Republicans are the party of the racist. Red State/Blue State only means those who are against the legitimate rights of black people(Red) and those who are for the legitimate rights of black people.

    They're a white supremacist party. Why would African Americans support the party that hates them?

    Whom do you think they voted for 1866-1928?

    They used to have it. Republicans have always been fair and just to African-Americans. That's why the party was founded. Democrats have always hoodwinked and used blacks for political gain. In 1964, When Congress passed LBJ's civil rights act in 1964, the only opposition came from Democrats. All Republicans voted for it. LBJ told his buddies "Now we have the black vote for the next 100 hundred years."  The Dems always make big promises to the blacks, but rarely come through.

    "For so long"......... began with FDR, and his social programs, and their fate seemed to be sealed with LBJ's "Great Society", which effectively made the low income dependent and more dependent than that.............and the male parent disposable. 

    That's a deep hole to climb out of. When for generations everyone who is out to "help" tells you that you can do nothing without THEIR "help". That's quite condescending when you look at it objectively.
