In 2008, 96% of black Americans voted for Barack Obama.
The current election has featured one continuous stream of racism from the left. Everything is racist.
This is terribly one sided.
Black people in this country are nearly monolithic in their support for Obama and it is simply and completely racially based.

Obama gets a pass on pretty much everything:
ARDMORE, Pa. — Like many black Americans, Dorsey Jackson does not believe in gay marriage, but he wasn’t disillusioned when Barack Obama became the first president to support it. The windows of his suburban Philadelphia barbershop still display an “Obama 2012″ placard and another that reads “We’ve Got His Back.”
If Obama needs to endorse same-sex marriage to be re-elected, said Jackson, so be it: “Look, man — by any means necessary.”
With that phrase popularized by the black radical Malcolm X, Jackson rebutted those who say Obama’s new stand will weaken the massive black support he needs to win re-election in November. Black voters and especially black churches have long opposed gay marriage. But the 40-year-old barber and other African-Americans interviewed in politically key states say their support for Obama remains unshaken.
It seems no matter how deep the disagreement:
“We can agree to disagree on gay marriage,” Givens said, “and then I leave him alone.”
Even Jay Z, who claims to support smaller government, supports Obama for one reason- because Obama is black
Despite his support for the President, Jay-Z’s “less government” viewpoint is more in line with Obama’s opponents on the right, such as Republican candidate Mitt Romney, who also calls for smaller government. But his stance on smaller government aside, Jay-Z is all in for the president’s re-election.
“I support Barack because I gotta respect that sort of vision. I gotta respect a man who is the first black President ever,” he said. “To have that sort of vision and dream, I have to support that.”
Losers under the Obama regime?
The typical family. Household income fell during the recession—which officially began at the end of 2007, 13 months before Obama was sworn in—but it has fallen even more in the three years since the recession officially ended in 2009. Between June 2009 and June 2012, real household income, adjusted for inflation, has fallen from $53,508 to $50,964, according to Census data analyzed by Sentier Research. That’s a 5 percent decline, which “represents a significant reduction in the American standard of living,” according to Sentier. The biggest losers have been families with an unemployed breadwinner, along with single-parent and black households.
Blacks suffer the most from unemployment under Obama
Among black workers, unemployment went up almost 1 percent in one month, from 13.6 percent in May to 14.4 percent in June, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics report.
For young black people ages 16 to 19, unemployment rose from 36.5 percent in May to a staggering 39.3 percent in June.
It seems as though nothing matters other than skin color
Excuse me, but, I was beginning to think that Black folks, somehow, didn’t really understand that their circumstances had not improved since November, 2008, and that they didn’t fully appreciate that the racial climate, in this country, has, arguably, grown even worse, since the last presidential election.
Man, was I wrong.
It turns out that Blacks — like other Americans — understand completely that they are living through a brutal economic and race-based crisis. The problem is, that they really haven’t figured out who to blame for all of that, that they seem to have developed a peculiar capability to separate going out to vote for a candidate, such as Barack Obama, whom they personally “like,” or are “proud of,” from holding that person accountable for any real improvement in their conditions.
And, apparently, they’re okay with that.
Well alright then.
So here’s the question. If black people can support Obama solely on the basis of his skin color and not be accused of racism why aren’t white entitled to support Romney solely on the basis if his skin color and not be accused of racism?
Isn’t that what equality is all about?
