September 12, 2012 ‐ By Blair Bedford

As the next Presidential election draws nigh in November, the two most popular candidates, Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney have been paving the campaign trail. With election year comes slander, controversy and your occasional celebrity political rants. Politics met entertainment with the latest celebrity rant, coming from Nicki Minaj, in which she rapped in vote of Republican Mitt Romney. This was a shock to fans and celebrity bloggers everywhere, but Nicki is not the only popular African-American face that has shown favor to the GOP.  Here is a list of some African-American celebrities who have supported or are affiliated with the Republican party:

LL Cool J

LL Cool J attended the Republican Convention in 2004 and has been a supporter of Republican New York governor George Pataki back in 2002. He has never officially stated his political party.

    How about Jackie Robinson, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Frederick Douglass? All Republicans.

  • Shawn Cicero

    republican because there money, its greed folks

  • Muletail

    what about Martin Luther King, republican?

  • lionhart32

    What a racist article. I guess the only reason to vote for Obama is because he’s black? Where’s the list of whites that voted for Romney?

  • John Gordon

    this is a dumb list –
    1) The Rock is not “black” – he is Samoan and Caucasian
    2) Several of these were Republican when the party was the progressive one….
    Not exactly a shock….

  • Theresa

    You could add Lionel Hampton and Jackie Robinson to this list. Both Republicans.

    • Plantsmantx

      They’re both long dead.

  • Victor Lee

    I don’t know about everyone on this list but Gen. Powell endorsed President Obama publicly in both elections. I have to question the whole list.

  • AwareDave

    Why aren’t Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. on this list? Both big Republicans. Malcolm X called blacks that voted Democrat “traitors to their race.” Easy to understand why.

    • Chiryder

      MLK voted Republican. He wasn’t a registered Republican. Same with Malcolm X.

      Plus, it was a different Republican party back then.

      • Ursus_Indomitus

        Yeah, the ex Democrat neocons hadn’t yet hijacked the GOP.

  • TrueGrit

    whew! That was close. almost didn’t get to 15, but found two dead guys (Wilt chamberlain and Booker T. Washington) to finish the list.

  • samsenseone

    There is a black population that is not ghetto. It is educated, successful, proud. It has disdain for do nothing ghetto freeloaders and hoods. They are not the same culture . It has no use for a leader that thrives on and manipulates his own people rather than assisting them become more than they are. .

  • Robert Garfinkle

    You forgot Jackie Robinson.. a big Nixon supporter.

  • sklawz39

    Martin Luther King was Republican.

  • YouWontLikeIt

    It comes down to ideology now … race is a thing of the past in American politics … my fellow black americans are far more conservative than most think they are … they just have been blinded by being led down the victim path … the awakening is coming soon and i welcome them into the principles that made this country what it is … only then will they be set free …

    • Ursus_Indomitus

      They are ignored/vilified by the LameStream Media.

  • TheRajLOSAngeles

    I’d be embarrassed to say I support President Barack Obama no matter what color I was.

  • Ralph526

    God Bless them! At this time in the entertainment industry they are very bold to speak up.

  • Tiffany

    By placing Booker T. Washington and Zora Neale Hurston in this category without proper explanation is not only irresponsible but also sets a tone for misunderstanding with those not familiar with early party affiliation of the black american. These two were republicans just like many black americans during their time bc that was the party who was for the betterment of the black population in the years following the end of slavery. Democrats were primarily poor southern whites. It wasn’t until Franklin D. Roosevelt became president and began to dig the US out of the Great Depression with his ABC Economics that we (black americans) switched to the democratic party. It also helped that his wife Eleanor Roosevelt was all about equal rights, even going so far as to ride in an airplane piloted by a black pilot enlisted in the military not allowed to fly in the war because apparently during that time blacks could not see at night.

    • Rgarcia339

      The only explanation needed is that the Black community has been lied to and taken advantage of.

  • K9Kahuna

    Wow…..ONLY CNN could list CondI Rice as a “celebrity” instead of the uh, obvious.

  • Mann Fairbanks

    How about Martin Luther King? You folks all know that republicans freed the slaves, and supported the civil rights movement, while democrats did not, don’t you?

    • Chiryder

      So what have they done in the last say 40 years?

      • Mann Fairbanks

        Trying to get you lazy blacks off your asses and start working. The only problem is the democrats are offering you free stuff, and you’re lazy. So it’s clear where things started going downhill for you.

        Everything Democrats do for blacks hurts them in the long run. Ev er ee thing

        • Chiryder

          So what have they done in the last say 40 years?

          I didn’t ask for your racial and political bias. What have they done in the last say 40 years for black people? How did they try to get lazy blacks off our…and start working?

          • DukeCanuck

            What conservative have done for black people in the last 40 years is what they’ve done for others… Try to convince them to empower themselves and do for themselves!

            • Chiryder

              so nothing. That’s all talk from the luxury of a podium or a news blog/article.

              I haven’t seen one step foot in a neighborhood and do something. I’m not asking for handouts. I’m asking for help. People fear jumping into a neighborhood by yourself. I would too. I’m saying there are blacks doing a lot of good in these neighborhoods and they could use some help instead of pointing fingers. Heck, the media chooses to ignore them and show some of the positivity going on in these neighborhoods.

              I see blacks marching and starting up programs to help these underprivileged black folk strive to do better. I see Republicans stand back and go “tisk, tisk you should do better.”

              and blacks are the most segregated group? Yea, okay.

              • AwareDave

                Yes, blacks are the most self-segregated group. “That’s OUR word, that’s OUR music, that’s OUR culture.” Ever hear of the white word? What word do Asians or Africans own? What does white music sound like? How many times did black people cry “hate crime” last year versus white, brown, or Asian people? We now have “the knockout game” and black people are saying it’s not a hate crime (even though it’s only black on white so far.) The “black culture” you so eagerly defend is so desperate to separate itself from the rest of the world that it won’t ever advance. “The last two elections they have REFUSED to campaign to black people.” What makes you think skin color has any precedent on politics? Why can’t he campaign to you, the individual, the independent thinker, and not to the black skin covering all that?The president isn’t supposed to cater to black people. He’s not supposed to cater to anyone except the American people. Not special interest groups, not a political party, and certainly not a certain group of people who possess an over-inflated sense of entitlement (congress). And Republicans don’t stand back and go “tisk, tisk you should do better,” they stand back and go “tisk, tisk, you shouldn’t raise your kid to think that being on welfare is normal, stabbing someone for an xbox is ok, and that using the ER as your personal doctor’s office is what it’s there for.”

                • Chiryder

                  “That’s OUR word, that’s OUR music, that’s OUR culture.’” Yea, I’ve never heard that. Whites created the word as reference to blacks so it’s actually your word. That you felt guilty about and made a point to stop using it. Then when we use it you get confused and wonder why you can’t use it. When you created it.

                  “our music.” Yea, I’ve never seen that. “Our Music” R&B, Gospel, and Jazz became the foundations for the Rock music you listen to today. “hate crime” is an actual legal term that deals with crimes with religious, gender, and racial biases. It’s not just on us.

                  “What makes you think skin color has any precedent on politics? Why can’t he campaign to you, the individual, the independent thinker, and not to the black skin covering all that?”

                  Buuut, he didn’t. He didn’t step foot in my neighborhood and listen to the needs of our community. I’m not going to walk into a all white community and listen to him talk about what he’s going to do for them. You have an entire group agreeing with him but none of has anything to do with me.

                  “The president isn’t supposed to cater to black people. He’s not supposed to cater to anyone except the American people.”

                  So what you’re saying is I’m not America because I’m black.

                  Again we “self-segregate”.

                  “And Republicans don’t stand back and go “tisk, tisk you should do better,” they stand back and go “tisk, tisk, you shouldn’t raise your kid to think that being on welfare is normal, stabbing someone for an xbox is ok, and that using the ER as your personal doctor’s office is what it’s there for.””

                  What’s the difference? Is that not “doing better?” Either way you’re “standing back” you’re not stepping for in a black community.

      • Rgarcia339

        What have you done?

        • Chiryder

          not answer a question with a question. Stop deflecting. This isn’t about me. This is about a political party and sometimes a President that doesn’t care about black people in the last say 40 years. The last two elections they have REFUSED to campaign to black people. Then when they lose the election they blame us. Like we were supposed to vote for them because they didn’t care about us.

  • HighInformationVoter

    Too bad Dr. Carson isn’t considered a celebrity. He’s a little squishy on the 2nd Amendment, but very solid all around.

  • Rich P

    Funny … another slide show on this site shows all the celebs of 2012 we are done with. They all have problems (mostly personal). Everyone on THIS slide show is respected and successful. Coincidence?

  • jmb

    it’s funny how so many blacks love obama and democrates and despise Republicans. You know that it was the Republicans who fought bled and died to end slavery. You also know that it was the DEMONcrats that fought bled and died to continue slavery. But the blacks in America don’t know that. And the DUMBacrats messiah, Obama sure isn’t going to admit that.

  • albaby2

    Colin Powell is as much a Republican as Michael Bloomberg. His ego is right up
    there with Obamas.

  • asbo-5

    Yeah, the rock aint black.

  • ItsNotTheSameThing

    I realize this article is a year old, and I also realize someone may have already pointed this out in the comments section, but Martin Luther King Jr. was also a Republican.

  • ra44mr2

    So Obama supporters what exactly has he done for you in 5years? Those higher taxes? Or maybe the drone strikes, oh wait i know what it is, the 25% unemployment for african americans THAT must be it cause you know all the african americans dont actually WANT to work. Or at least thats what the democrats say, thats why they want to give more and more welfare out.

    • McTrck

      What higher taxes? No-one cares about your feelings.

  • b

    stacy dash

  • TryThinking1956

    As soon as these handkerchief-heads get two dollars to stuff into their mattresses, they become republicans. Remember…being able to sing a song or throw a ball doesn’t necessarily make you either intelligent or loyal. Pray for these self-hating coons.

    • ra44mr2

      Its sad you think that way and would use such insulting names about others. Please explain how Republicans “hate” black people? Because they dont believe in welfare? Or maybe because they recognize the source of more deaths of blacks is in the abortion clinics? Or do you prefer the democrat party that believes blacks are too stupid or weak to care for themselves and are better kept at the bottom of the economic ladder with the barest of subsistence to keep them voting for them every 2 and 4 years? You need to wake up and see the hate, its like that old story of the cow and bird poop, not everyone that poops on you is your enemy and just because someone pulls you out of the poop doesnt mean they are your friend. Id rather have the freedom to do for myself instead of relying on the govt for everything, because if the govt gives you everything they can just as easily take it away for whatever reason they like.

  • Goober

    It does not matter the color of one’s skin, their ideas and beliefs can be the same as anyone else’s or not. Why make something else a racial issue?

  • Informed

    Same with Booker T. Washington…

  • Informed

    When Zora Neale Hurston was a Republican, most blacks were Republicans because it was Lincoln’s party. It was really only after FDR showed some benefits to blacks in the New Deal and Lyndon Johnson helped pass the Civil Rights Act that they moved toward the Democrats

  • Brad

    Unless you happen to be Don King… who is certainly not a role model for intelligent blacks…

    • lygamnt

      Why is Don King a bad influence because he worked for his money?

  • McTrck

    Except for noted conservative luminaries Condoleeza Rice and Jimmy Walker, all of these figures supported Republicans in 2006 or earlier. Two—Zora Neale Hurston and Booker T. Washington—pre-date both the Obama presidency and, uh, the Civil Rights era. Can’t we do better?

  • Chris

    If I’m not mistaken, Powell endorsed Obama.

  • When blacks who speak English correctly and take school seriously are accused of “acting white” then you can see what the results are.

  • Is this website Stormfront for black people? Seems that way.

  • Don Carter

    What! Colin Powell and Condi Rice are Republicans? Whoever woulda thunk it! You learn something new every day, I guess. (Snark) But seriously, mentioning that Zora Neale Hurston and Booker T. Washington were Republicans without explaining how the two parties have changed over time regarding their approaches to Civil Rights is misleading, to put it mildly. It buys into the ridiculous notion circulated in Ohio during the 2012 election that Blacks should vote Republican because Lincoln freed the slaves. Where is the historical perspective here?

  • gully gurl

    historically MANY blacks were republicans from the 20s to the early 70s because the republicans were the part of lincoln – hello!!!! it’s no surprise that zora would be on the list. it wasn’t until the 60s and the advent of the southern strategy with the republican party luring southern (racists) democrats – remember bull connor??? into the party beginning with the 64 republican convention that blacks started leaving the party.

    • Ravi32

      There is a massive amount of data that shows the more freedom African Americans have the more successful they are.

      The Democrats never abandoned their policy of keeping African Americans down. They just modernized it to create a dependency.

  • Jose Luis Garcia

    It is so shameful that the most popular black entertainers, who rake in millions of dollars, are Republican Sympathisers ,when the need for financial help is needed not politicaly but socialy, and yet the black entertainers, who think their wealth is down from the Republican Patry, their mind is not in sink with what they preach, so to me all of these 15 entertaines need a brain adjustment or a rude awakening.

    • Ravi32

      Maybe they recognize that freedom and self reliance empower African Americans and the dependency and victimhood culture sold by the Democrats is an opiate?

  • Anton

    I don’t vote for the party and I wish other would do the same, it is sad that blacks will vote for a democrat no matter what even though the democrats have done little to help them. The republican party has done more for blacks and equality but the democrats have an effective propaganda machine that spins lies that blacks believe and they will pass that on to their children who keep voting (D). Republicans are not much better but they have done more for blacks, but overall it does not matter, black, white, brown, Asian, both parties help the rich, the rich get richer and the poor stay poor and pay for everything with their tax money while the rich get all the breaks,

  • Anton

    People who vote straight party lines are the cause of the problem, even though both parties only help the rich on the backs of the poor a voter should never vote for a candidate based on their party affiliation. I have seen too many people vote either (D) or (R) no matter who is running, the guy could be a Nazi or for slavery and they would vote for him because he was a dem or rep. I have voted for the last 25 years and I have never voted all one party on the ticket, local, state and national. I have voted for 4 republican and 2 democrat for president in those years, I also look at voting records and never listen to the left wing MSNBC, CNN, Bill Mahre or Jon Stewert, nor the rights Fox news or Rush. The problem is we reward these guys by re-electing them instead of voting them out for all their broken promises, if we voted them out after one term they might get the message.

  • Anton

    Both parties are out to help the rich, the rich get them elected and they in return help the rich and big business on the backs of the poor. Republican or democrat, it does not matter they both help the rich. The republicans had all three houses from 2000-2006 and the democrats had all three houses from 2008-2010 and even had a rare super majority in the Senate, the democrats had a filibuster proof senate meaning they could have passed, or repealed any legislation they wanted. Obama and the democrats hurt the country just as bad as Bush and the republicans, maybe more.

  • Floyd

    Excuse me, how the hell do you put Powell on this list? He has turned his back on conservatism. He is not a Rep. no matter what he tells you. Big Fail!

  • Nabil Al-Murabit

    There were some on this list that surprised the hell out of me like 50 cent and Jimmy Walker. There were others who didn’t surprise me because their lawn jockey bona fides are well known. What has to be said is that the currently regressive party, that Wilt and that female author supported isn’t the same party today. We have to remember that the republican party that will supported, created the Environmental Protection Agency and the modern regressives want to kill it. Another thing I noticed about the Negores on this list. They were all rich. They’re free to support who they want. What’s funny is that they support a political party that doesn’t give a damn about them. What really pi$$es me off about the Negro konservative is that they won’t call their masters out on anything that they do. Where was the Negro konservative when the various states in Jesusland, tried to implement various types of voter suppression schemes? What positive solutions to the supposed problems our community faces that they have suggested? Why are they cool with a political party that uses the most racist and negative images of Blacks to win elections? The good thing for me is that I don’t monitarily support any of them anyway

  • seriously

    always good to know who to not like/admire anymore. :)
    i hate the republican party.

    • dannyvice

      Obviously you prefer your black people on the Democrat plantation. Dependent on government from cradle to grave so they’ll keep voting for your party.

  • neil

    Zora Neale Hurston was a Republican??Weren’t all blacks back then — before the GOP flipped about 50 yrs ago? As for Condi Rice, uh, no kidding. Is this supposed to be a scoop?

  • Tony Dockery

    There are no poor low income or on food stamps black GOP ers…..wonder why?

  • 1BoDigitally1

    This list is a waste of time. When Booker T. Washington was a
    Republican, the Democratic Party was headed by racist Southerners and is
    in no way a reflection of today’s party of inclusion. Besides, neither
    party has the best interest of the citizens at heart because both need
    corporate multimillions to bombard us with campaign promises (lies) by
    the hundreds which Americans apathetically forget once the “I Voted”
    sticker is peeled off. My father was a civil rights activist who ran as an Independent candidate
    for mayor of Hartford, CT in 1966 and he had no choice but to become a
    Democrat in order to “Play the game”. As a Democrat, he riled his senate peers MANY times and his name was Wilber G. Smith. Do some
    research. I have argued with relatives who believed President Obama is
    “The Great Black Hope” when I said; In order for the country to move
    forward, we must elect a Native American woman, who will like Obama,
    have to play by the book and will have her detractors yelling “Liar”
    from the hallowed halls of Congress as easily as they yelled for Bill
    Clinton’s impeachment, but, a president for all people. Maybe the second
    woman, or African American, or first Native American, Latino, or next
    Caucasian will bring a freshness to the table the likes of which are not
    possible with our current president. Obama has mounted a noble mission,
    but the “powers that be” are nonyielding in their pursuit of world
    financial domination. The rich used to just get richer and now the rich get way richer and the poor get way poorer.
    Our 2-party political system is a farce and will be the ruination of our
    country in time. Bloodshed begot freedom from English Tyranny just as
    bloodshed removed Egypt’s President Morsi, alas, when the people rise
    up, though there will be lives lost, true Democracy will have spoken.

  • doug s

    Black celebs from the 1950′s and early ’60′s, and earlier, do not count. In those days the GOP was the pro civil rights party. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican.

  • mnxx252

    50 and gwb have the same birthday

  • layla

    colin powel supported obama in last election

  • Very Reasonable Citizen

    Of course they’re down with the republicans. They have millions of dollars, companies, etc

  • me

    Colin Powell has publicly and proudly endorsed President Obama.

  • bobandrosie

    What do you know, you found 15 black people that are Republicans. Using such a racist title for this BS article shows very little class.

  • Eddie Cruz

    Blacks from pre-civil rights era don’t count. Even Martin Luther King was a registered Republican. Calling colin Powell a died in the wool Republican is a stretch.

  • notformeyet

    Both parties are evil. For me, the Democratic Party is the better of the two evils (at this time)! This is subject to change as the two parties have swapped roles over the last 100 years. I used to vote for ones I thought were best for the jobs. Thirty years ago, I felt the republican party was getting so bad, there was no need to even consider voting for them again.

  • teabagtweaker

    There are two kinds of black republicans: the ignorant, and the sellouts.

  • smalltalk

    To get to fifteen, you picked two icons, long dead, Booker T and Zora Neale, and one almost dead Wilt Chamberlain. Isthat the best you could do?

  • TexasLady

    I have always loved him and this just adds to the adoration…and I am a white senior citizen….

  • ElvisWasAHero2Most

    Surprised Jackie Robinson isn’t up here, his feud with Paul Robeson is pretty well known. Robinson was an ardent supporter of Richard Nixon.

  • latin_lover

    The Rock looks Hawaiian or Samoan or some type of Polynesian. Why is he claiming that he’s black? Is that just so white people will have to like him? Why can’t they like a Polynesian person? They are cooler people anyways. Shame on you Mr.The Rock for not claiming your true heritage. You should be ashamed.

    • ElvisWasAHero2Most

      He’s half Samoan and half Black. Should he neglect his Black side? And since when does saying you’re Black better your chances with White people?

  • Mr. Mr.

    They have all successfully escaped the plantation mentality promoted by the Democrat party.

  • WHOA

    Really-Colin Powell? Nice to know that Life in American need not be about the race card; that would be racist wouldn’t it?

  • Darien

    Not all voted for Obama because he was black. Blacks have traditionally voted Democrat so I don’t see how that would have changed in 08 plus what about white people voting for Romney because he was white…don’t forget that gem. I agree with your last remark though but the idea that blacks only voted for Obama based on race is unfair and very retarded.

  • Ann M

    You forgot Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and I believe that Malcolm X was as well. All of the first black politicians were.

  • Tresix

    Why do they have Colin Powell in here twice?

  • CNWJR

    Why is a person who is bi-racial always called black & not white?Why is obama not white.It’s because he wanted the vote.Democrats want to keep the black community under foot.Instead of saying”get out & work”,it’s handouts,welfare,etc,etc,so they’ll get your votes & keep them in power.Vote for me & you’ll get this free & that free.Next up is the Mexicans,with amnesty to get their votes.I have tons of friends & family who are black that vote Republican & to say they vote wrong is to say we’re not all free as Americans(Not African Americans,Hispanic Americans),but Americans to vote as we choose.

    Personally,I think this web site is racist.If I started a web site catering to just white people,you’d call me a racist.Why can’t we forget we’re different colors & remember we’re all created in God’s image….Color shouldn’t even be brought up.

      First off, Obama represents this entire country. You’re basically implying that he supports welfare and handouts and saying blacks get “handouts,” and don’t work, are you a Fox commentator? Total ignorance, but I bet your black friends don’t mind huh? Let me take you to school slow bus, ok. White people use those programs too. Blacks, like whites, are in different social classes despite the crap you just spewed. The lower and middle class are a diverse group of people my friend and I like your attempt to make it seem like Obama allows people to be lazy, takers, useless, bums, who steal money blah blah blah. Both parties have manipulated its voters, but your statements seem very empty headed, especially since other races vote Democrat too and why would the president use the black card to get elected when most blacks vote for democrats like him anyway, genius. Turn off Fox and read a book or better yet-use your brain. Obama is mixed, like you mentioned, but he only claimed White because white people saw him as black…it was the only thing many focused on.

      If you don’t like the black site aimed toward blacks…why are you here then? Care to answer? By the way, the little reverse race card you played failed miserably. White people are the majority here and have many things catering to them so stop it. When a group of people have been held down as long as blacks, you tend to stick together. If you’re going to play the game…play it right, please.

    I am not a Republican. ;) Clinton did have a Republican congress, however and Clinton was willing to work with the other side, unlike our current #worstpresidentever! And guess what, we are 16 trillion in the hole, on track to be over 20 T very soon. Obama will be the first president on history to spend 4 T in one year. You must be so proud.

    PS, I am smarter than those who voted for him, no doubt about it.

    I think the ideals of the Republican party are better for all Americans, including black people. I’m not in agreement with some of the social beliefs of some Republicans, and of course, there will always be some bigots on that side who don’t like black people. However, the concept of hard work, keeping what you earn, and of personal responsibility, is one many Americans still value. When I see a rich person, I’d like to be more like them, not drag them down to my level. I truly believe that many Democrats, while believing they care for black people, support programs that will always keep many of them poor and dependent on the government, which is exactly what they want, as it’s good for votes. I’m glad to see some black people here that think differently.

    It’s still BOOOOSH’s fault. The reality is that Obama is a failed president. No one is better off. Least of all the black community. Watch that space, it is just going to get worse because the failed policies of this administration can not succeed. History has proven that.6 months later, more and more people are starting to see that. Their taxes have gone up and their insurance has gone up and no one is finding a job. Face it, Romney would have been so much better for this country, but half of this country is not wise enough to see. They soon will. I give us two more years.

    Just want to say that I appreciate the professionalism I’ve seen so far on the articles here. Most places have articles that ooze their opinions and sides…which is very un-journalistic. It’s refreshing…I can be who I am and read these articles (so far) without feeling smothered by someone’s personal agenda.

  • Khanikins

    The writing in this piece is horrible. It’s dreadful and not worthy of a legitimate publication. Here are some of the most entertaining examples of this piece’s bad writing:

    “(The Rock) was formerly invited to speak at the 2000 Republican National Convention.”

    Invitations can change into former invitations? Like, “this sandwich used to be an invitation before it changed into a sandwich. Now it’s a former invitation.” The phrase “formerly invited” makes no sense. Maybe the author just had a typo and meant to write “formally invited.” Either way, bad writing and editing.

    “Colin Powell was a very important figure for the beginning of the Bush administration..”

    So did the beginning of the Bush administration call Colin Powell and tell him how important he was to it? Grammatically, this makes no sense. I hope the author meant to type “during” instead of “for.”

    There are other gems in this piece. I’m particularly entertained when the author writes that someone “highly supported” or “highly opposed” something. I guess that’s a way of showing that person was really into supporting or opposing those things.

    By the way, there is no such thing as a George W. Bush Jr, as the author wrote. There’s a George Bush Jr. But his father was named George H.W. Bush.

    Very sloppy writing. Very sloppy, indeed.

  • hillplus

    Yep, Obama is our boss and our dad. He has all the answers and we have been delivered from the horror that a former governor, CEO and all around successful fix it guy would have wreaked! Unemployment is at an all time low, especially in the black community.Jobs are booming! No one is on welfare any more. We are FINALLY out of debt, everyone in the Middle East loves us. Obama has surrounded himself with amazingly smart, patriotic people. PLUS, Michelle Obama has some nice, toned arms and we all know how important that is! YAY us! All hail, King Obama, who has saved us…….he is our lord and savior. He can do nothing wrong, that guy, he is the perfect American.

    “…more people agreed with me than with you..” Right, and I’m the one with the self image issues. Geez, Louise! And I’m not concerned with Clinton’s sex life, quit taking snippits of a statement and making it the main issue. That kind of tactic only works on braindead idiots such as yourself for recruiting into the ranks of the Obamabots. Here’s a little news flash for ya, it’s how YOU got suckered into the lie. All the cute little debating tricks you libtards use to get around the truth and dodge the facts are only proof that you can’t win anything, elections, debates, nothing without treachery. And I seriously doubt you ever served, especially as a Marine since you have no honor and have to hide behind a fake moniker and avatar. I apparently have more courage than you even with you threatening me with violence. (Which by the way is on record now with the FBI and INTERPOL as well as a couple of my local authorities. Just in case I have to frag your sorry *ss in self defense it will be on record that the threat came from you) I will post my pic and use my name and you will not, that pretty much destroys your sociopathic claims of superiority. And my service was directly to the men and women of the armed forces as a civilian liason, so I did my part and did it for 8 yrs to your 6. So eat that and choke! As far a your stupid little pic of Bush, I dont see how that changes the fact that Obama has spent more in half the time. And spent it on stupider stuff like failed businesses that JUST HAPPENED to be campaign contributers. Looks like you are so stretched out back there that you don’t even know when YOU are being screwed.

    Ooh, “Skippy”, that’s original. Right your own material? Unlike you I’m able to determine the relevence of issues and bring it forth rather than think of everything as being a dead issue just because it was commented on a few months ago. I’m sorry you have no creativity or originality, but being mad at the world for it is no way to go through life, son. You don’t have to take your obvious anger and frustration out on other people. It’s not their fault you’re a schmendrik. And I was not going to comment on his page at all after reading the article, but going through the comments I noticed you were randomly taking pot shots at people who were making general comments that had nothing to do with you and you were just going around firing away at anybody an everybody who made a statement you didn’t like. And you want to talk about insecurity? Please, dilweed. A little introspection, huh? I have yet to see you level one single accusation or derogatory remark at me or anyone else that you yourself are not guilty of within that same post. it’s comical how nearsighted and narcissistic you are.So you think trying to scare me off by making thrreats of violence towards me is NOT trying to have the last word? Again, INTROSECTION! Getcha some. The whole idea behind any of your posts on here was to try and get people off topic, divert attention away from the fact that you had nothing to show for your ridiculous views. You might try just not posting comments and then you won’t have to keep posting more to cover up the dip-stick comment from before.

    Federal Correctional Facilities are not jails, they’re prisons, big difference. So it would be physically impossible for him to be in a “jail cell” in a Federal Correctional Facility. Secondly, if an un-American, Freedom-dispising, Liberty-hating Commie like Barack Obey-me can fix elections and win twice, then Americans can fix the broken electoral system and a true patriot like Alan (not Allen) West can win an election fair and square. Never say never, nudnick. You might be served your words as a side dish with a giant pile of crow. And you should fire your friends. They were messing with your obviously empty head. It’s also obvious by your own comments throughout this thread that you don’t have any original thoughts rolling aroung in your pointed skull and unless your “friends” give you things to say you are otherwise left with nothing to do.

    Ok, that answers my previous question. You really are THAT stupid. And yes, stupid people DO NOT know they’re stupid. Thanks fro clearing that up for us. More to the point, Democrats campaign consistantly on a platform of keeping blacks and hispanics dependent upon them for their existence. CURRENTLY, AS IN “RIGHT NOW” THEY ARE RACIST TO THE MARROW OF THEIR BONES! And lately they’ve even targetd low-income whites. Anybody giving away free stuff is sure to get the votes. And be sure in your Stockholm Syndrome induced lie-fest to leave out the part about George W. Bush appointing more minorities into key positions of government than any other President in American history. Yeah, don’t mention that because the facts are not what you’re interested in. Further, Clinton was a philanderer, plain and simple, not fit for service to the American people. Like your lordship Barack Obama. He steals $716 Billion from Social Security to pay for Obamacare which he insists to this day is alreay payed for but has already cost we tax payers 3 times the amount he said it would and it hasn’t even been fully implemented yet and when it is implemend in January of 2014 it will still leave 30 million UNINSUREDDD!! Just a different 30 million, bcause while he’s giving FREE STUFF to the low income uninsured he’s taking it away from hard working Americans. Obama who has borrowed like a hopeless gambler and spent like a drunken sailor after referring to Bush as unpatriotic and irresponsible for spending 4 trillion in 8 years and yet Obama spends 6.5 trillion in half that time. Oh wait you’re probably not reading this any more because truth is to liberals what sunlight is to vampires. Hope you have a nice day.

    • Stentor7

      You’re just repeating talking points that the Republicans were saying ad nauseum during the election & they were all proven wrong. So 65 million people besides me were wrong, but the 60 million people besides you were right? No, what’s more likely is that 65 million people didn’t believe the obvious fallacies of logic & truth, while the more gullible 60 million people chose to ignore the facts, & vote for someone merely because racism’s still a problem in this country, regardless of what they might say publicly, the dogwhistles were out in serious numbers during this election cycle. it’s not me or the people that voted for Obama that are stupid, it’s all the people that voted for a fraud & a liar like Mitt Romney & Paul Ryan. All you do is type the same crap I’ve heard in other comments from other people who sound exactly like you, & they can’t understand why I can argue circles around them as well as you. It’s because you have faulty reasoning, your facts aren’t facts, they’re merely your opinions, not the same thing, & they don’t seem to recognize the difference between the two. I just may make a point of hunting you down in 4 years when the economy’s recovered just to smash it into your face like Jimmy Cagney with a grapefruit. Your side lost, you’re wrong, & no amount of wailing, garment rending, & pearl clutching by you or anyone on your side will change that. Your side will lose the next presidential election in 2016 because they just can’t help themselves, they’re a bunch of old cranky white people who are bigoted down to their cores, & they’re going extinct just like the dinosaurs. So will you Keith Davidson, so will you.

        So if we’re on the subject of say guns, I’m supposed to talk about abortion? If we’re on the subject of abortion, I’m supposed to speak about immigration reform? What you call repeating talking points is actually, to those of us with cognitive function, staying on topic. And your comments make me think you didn’t read my entire response anyway, right? And you know it’s because you’ve been beaten at your own stupid little game of sniper-posting. But one thing is for sure, you have failed throughout this entire thread to stay on topic by continually going off the rails into your rant about an election which in your tiny little mind and in your narrow vision somehow means that if more evil people like you and more dead people, household pets and cartoon characters got off the couch to vote one way than the other, that somehow means your ideologies are better than everyone else’s. You actually believe that treachery like rigging the electronic voting machines makes your vision for America the correct choice. And to deny that all that did happen is only to prove how delusional you are. But then you yourself do you prove that libtards do actually know the truth and have abandoned it in favor of lies. Your agenda is clear, and there is no denying that immorality is winning. But it’s only biblical prophecy proving you wrong anyway. (And again, I could explain to you what that means, but I can’t understand it for you, and your not equipped to understand a whole lot, so what would be the point) But you do know the truth and you know it well and it disgusts you. That is how and why you take the truth and spin it and manipulate it to accomplish the goal you have of turning morality into immorality and vice versa. You reveal yourself and your simple-mindedness with your own words in comments like “the fallacy of truth and logic”. Please post that phrase everywhere so everyone can see what a complete loser and simpleton you are. And what you consider bigotry is actually the morality of God. Just because a majority of people believe that it is ok for a man to lie down with another man does not make it ok. Just because a majority of people believe to decry the mistreatment of animals is fashionable but to murder your own offspring in the womb is both morally sound and convenient does not make it so. Ok, so you have managed to convince 65 million people that voting against a certain party because they are white is somehow NOT racist, and voting for a guy because you have to undo the Republican victory over you of Emancipation by having the first black President is also not racist and not partisan. A majority of dumb does not mean that dumb becomes smart. It’s just a majority of dumb. But then I’m talking to someone who is so confused that I don’t even have to whip out the big artillery because you defeat yourself with your own words. “Fallacy of truth and logic” I am laughing so hard at you right now, you just have no idea. Oh by the way did you know that many staunch black democrats are turning away from Obama and are openly siting his failures and are saying, “Well, he’s only half-black anyway”? Did you know that? Oh wait I’m talking to someone who get their news from from the propaganda machine, AND BELIEVES IT!! LMMFAO!! Ok, here’s how I know, and now you will know you’re wrong. The Constitution of the United States of America, a document which is a thorn in your side because of all that self-reliance and freedom and liberty crap you hate so much, is replete with examples of why it is better to have a system of government where he people are represented by more than one party. But you actually would destroy America in favor of an autocracy. Now I know based on all your posts that you have very little grasp of history, or at the very least you’re attempting to be a revisionist (and believe me, any real revisionist historians who read your dribble, evil as they are, are laughing at you and spraying their milk out their noses, you DO NOT have the knack, kid) which is why it is you and not I who is bereft of any facts and instead rely on opinion so you can pretend you’ve won a debate, and is why your party is bent on repeating history and doom the rest of us to do so as well. But that notwithstanding, the fact is that this tyrannical thinking without fail leads to a monarchy and then those of you mindless drones who gleefully helped to usher it in become the victims of your own short-sightedness. That process has repeated itself continually throughout history because of this kind of imbecilic thinking. So yes, be proud of the fact that your party has systematically destroyed the most philanthropic and humanitarian nation in the history of the world; indeed be proud that your party’s policies have produced a generation of youth who can’t read their high school diploma’s but know how to shank a kid in the hall. Be proud of the fact that your party’s policies have murdered and entire generation of Americans any one of whom may have grown up to discover a cure for cancer or ways to beat poverty or an endless source of clean energy. Be proud that your paarty has done all this while claiming to be the party of enlightenment and ascension. And as far as your threats of violence upon me? Only a coward won’t use his real name and won’t post a real picture of himself. But that’s ok, the authorities and the administrators of this site have been notified. You’ll probably be hearing from someone soon. And we’ll see who goes extinct. Have a nice day, Skippy.

I mean if you’re well off or just filthy rich…..would you not want to stay that way??? Likewise if you are on the other end you would want a piece of that pie. Regardless there are no rich politicans. Obama nor cain are representative if your average black citizen. If anyone cares or knows anything about history….GOP were originally the ones who pushed for blacks to have to rights. Hello Abe Lincoln??? During reconstruction it was the rep party that was pro black whereas the dems wamted to keep the status quo. Eventually this changed and here we are today.

    This list is crap because you can’t judge past involvement with the Republicans as a non-supporter of B Obama… It all depends on the policies and view points, I am sure some of these people supported Obama. Who would have thought a black man would have won elections anyway, we are living in a historical moment of time. Obama was clearly the better candidate over Romney

  • BizziCali

    There are some stars that are sorta out of context. The Republican party was the preferred party by many Af-americans until FDR because it was the party of Lincoln, who “freed the slaves”. So of course people like Booker T Washington and Zora Neale Hurston were Republicans.
    The fact that needs to be remembered is that the majority of Af-am became Democrats after the election of FDR, and even more so after the election of John F Kennedy.

    Finally, it should be noted that the southern states have tended to vote against anything that would benefit the majority of the Af-American community. It is incorrect to say that Colin Powell is opposed to Barack Obama since both he and Susan Eisenhower have endorsed Pres Barack Obama in 2008 and in 2012 campaigns.

    Please do better research and be aware of historical context in your reporting.

    Though a Republican, it is worth noting that Colin Powell has endorsed Barack Obama twice.

  • jayhdavis

    Absolutely untrue! I do not care what a person looks like, what color they are- however, I DO CARE ABOUT THEIR POLICIES, AND obama is a marxist, and is bent upon destroying this wonderful country! For your information, clansmen were southern, white democratic men. How about all of the Republicans who fought during the Civil War, and died, so that the slaves could be freed? and, the majority of voters for the Civil Rights Acts during the 1960s were Republicans…the Democrats fought against the Civil Rights Acts- or, you obviously don’t know that?

  • ChakraGirl

    Many of you may not realize that many to most Black people were Republican up to the depression era generation. Ask your grandparents how they voted (those of you who are Black). Historically, Republicans freed the slaves, and Southern Democrats were just “good ole boys.” Things only changed in the latter 1/2 of the 20th century.

    I am not sure what the author of this document was trying to prove. For me he only proved that we do not vote based on color and they we do consider both parties, even though Colin Powell endorsed Barack Obama and Sheryl Underwood voted for him. I myself consider myself to be a independant simply because I vote across party lines; not based on the color of a persons skin. Remember all of the people on this list are well above 6 figure salaries and it really does not matter which way they vote; simply because most decisions will not affect them.

    People can vote for who they want. If you are rich and someone wants to have you pay more money, might not be the guy for you. I can understand that. At the core, repububs
    have some good points. And lately(After the election) they have espoused them in their essence. However, their positions are not served Ala Carte. They come with a lot of overt racism, sexism homophobia, and a us vs. them mentality. Moreover, its hard for me to envision LL riding down the highway listening to Rush L, Ann C. D Trump etc. This is a guess on my part. Who is the face of the party? People use to think of Colin Powell or other people that seemed like that has some sense. Having said all that I would be embarrassed to claim identification with the GOP in its current form. May expose the Dems on another day..

    We voted for Obama b/c we did not like Romney’s policies. In fact, he flip flopped, and even lied so much that we have no idea what his policies were. In any event, whatever his policies were did nothing for women, seniors, and basically those in the “47%”, I do not want to be type cast by black GOP’ers because I am a Democrat. I really do not like what I hear coming from the GOP. Perhaps that will change at some point in time. As you know, the Democratic party of today was once the GOP of yesterday. So, who knows? The main thing I want to say is Af-Am’s are not Democratic out of habit. Many of us simply do not like the GOP policies that have been presented. By the way, many white GOP’ers also voted for Obama. So cable news will report what sells,but the bottom line is it is not about race. It is about policy.

    Finally, if you are black, and you have been listening to the way GOP’ers have been talking to Obama…you should be concerned. They did everything they could not to have a black president! John Sununu was shameless, Donald Trump?! Please… Birthers? Has it dawned om anyone that Romney’s dad ran for president…but was born in Mexico? What about McCain? He was not born in America. Where were the birthers? I will never vote for someone who will do harm to me. Barack Obama is the president, if they treat our president like that, what will they do to me? We never really heard about policy. It was expected that through racial degradation, voter suppression, as well as voter depression…it was in the bag for Mittens. However, no one appreciates being treated badly, and many do not appreciate seeing others treated so shabbily. For me to become a black GOP’er, a lot would have to change.. .

    • jayhdavis

      Another idiot that can’t understand that the people who didn’t vote for obama did so because of his idealogies, associations, and policies! Period! He’s destroying this country, and I am assuming that you do not mind that-

  • For the love of country

    Wow! This sure seems like a blacklist (no pun intended) for black celebs. You should really vote on the right thing to do for our country – not on race. How about that 6 trillion deficit?That’s more that ALL US presidents combined (Bush on spent only spent 4 trillion in 8 years), what do we have to show for it? Higher dept.,more unemployment, dollar is worth less, a new tax called Obama care, 4 dead Americans in Bengazi, LESS transparency, a fiscal cliff ( can’t blame republicans, the democrats controlled house, senate, Presidency for 2 years and couldn’t get it done- first time in history!)
    The Dems want bigger government, more of us dependent on them ( did you get your “Obama phone”?). Seems to me they are holding us down, not lifting us up! My child was born $52000 in dept.!
    Now don’t get me wrong, I think it was important that we have and a black President for the first time in history, but now he has a record…and it ain’t good!
    Yes, if Herman Cain would have won the nomination I would have voted for him but not because he is a true black man ( O is only half) but because of his stance on the issues.
    The election is over, so this is too little too late and I hope and pray I’m wrong about this administration, but if I’m not…next time you should vote with your head- not your heart.

  • http://twitter.com/butchrebel butchrebel

    Noting which celebrities voted for Obama/Democrat in recent elections would be useful.

    Colin Powell is one — I expect there are at least a few others.

    Zora Neal Hurston’s politics are not accurately labeled Republican — not when we compare her political views to that of today’s GOP. For example, Hurston opposed integration because she thought white racism was damaging to black people, and that integration would not eliminate white racism. In fact, it would make blacks more susceptible to it.

    The historical record, at least before the mid-1980s, suggests that she is right. (Although, race segregation continues to structure the lives of most people in the U.S., and blacks do not benefit from it — not economically. Whites, on the other hand, reap massive unearned benefits from discrimination against people of color, which manifests, in part, as race segregation in housing and schooling, for example. Even poor whites live in more stable housing and access better social services than poor blacks — and poor blacks tend to live in more severe poverty than poor whites).

    • http://twitter.com/butchrebel butchrebel

      The Republican Party changed radically after LBJ’s passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Pro-segregation white Democrats, infuriated with LBJ’s implementation of voting rights legislations that delivered a crushing blow to Jim Crow, defected in droves to the Republican Party.

      This is the GOP that is in place today — which is to say that Dr. MLK would NOT endorse today’s Republican party politics.

      Dr. King is a “party of Lincoln Republican” — that is, a “big government” Republican that abolished state’s rights to own slaves — a Republican that supported Affirmative Action (LBJ’s & Nixon’s policy) because of the U.S.’s history of institutional sexism and racism. (Affirmative Action was only enacted by institutions with a history of discriminating against white women and people of color. The same is true today. And contrary to popular stereotypes, WHITE women are the primary beneficiaries of Affirmative Action. Only .25% of all undergraduate scholarships — nationwide — are race-based).

      So, please do not advance a distorted view of political history based on your lack of knowledge of today’s GOP’s roots in the defense of legal race segregation.

    I’m not trying to offend anyone but seriously how could anyone vote for Hermaine Cain?? He was soooo not prepared for the job?!!!!

  • Sabe

    OMG most of you guys are idiots, RESEARCH these candidates…I GUARANTEE that you wouldn’t vote for them if you knew what they stood for, the Republicans are 90% white–there’s a reason, look it up…Herman Caine was a ploy by the Republicans to get black people to vote for them—I’m not easily fooled. Hermaine Caine was an idiot, he didn’t even realize he was being used with that giant EGO, look up what Anne Coulter said, she proved my point and she’s an insider. I’m not voting alongside skin heads although racism runs in both parties but you can’t help it that you lived in an era of segregation, also Republicans think we don’t need social programs or that the poor (which usually consists of minorities) deserve their lower class status…this isn’t social darwinism, its not christian. But they forget about the New Deal and how that was a way to get whites into the middle class, but affirmative action is racist? Also I hate that when black people ‘make it’ all of a sudden they switch parties bc they think that Republicans being ‘whiter’ will get them more status and taken more seriously. Sellouts! If the republicans met these black celebrities before they made it, would they be so nice to them then?

  • jsmith0552

    What’s LL doing on this list? If the man has never stated his political affiliation (which he shouldn’t be doing anyway), it probably means he votes for who he considers to be the best candidate. So he most likely votes the person not the party which more people should do. Articles like this only exist to polarize an already polarized nation, and even worse it’s trying to cause a bigger rift between Black people which we certainly don’t need.

  • Ken C

    I wonder why a celebrity’s political leaning is considered news worthy? The reason Cain was knocked out of the race is because if it came down to an election between him and Obama, Obama would have lost and couldn’t have used the race card to explain it. It would have taken the divisiveness and hate as a tool, out of the hands of the liberals.

    There are a couple of misleading facts put out in this article. One, Zora Neal and Booker T being republicans was not uncommon in those days, it was before the civil rights movement and Lincoln was a republican and of course they freed the slaves. The other misleading fact is Colin Powell as well as Sherryl Underwood endorsed the president. A vote for one party or race cor that matter is not monolithic. We dont vote based on race. We vote based on the issues that matter to us.

    My problem with putting all your eggs in the democratic basket leave you no wiggle room if you disagree with some or all their policies. Most blacks are against gay marriage, abortion and legalizing drugs. However, republicans were painted as they hate blacks, want to stop women from getting abortions, stealing grandma’s social security and medicare, want hispanics to be deport tomorrow and thinks poor people should die. President Obama never ran on any of his policies or his healthcare victory, just on fear and it worked.

  • Cass

    This article is somewhat misleading and it perpetuates the stereotype that blacks vote based on race. Historically, blacks were Republican. This was because they were against segregation and for civil rights. Abraham Lincoln was a Reublican, as was other President who championed rights for women and minorities. So it would only make sense that Booker T. Washington and Zora Neal Hurston would be Republicans. As times changed so did party beliefs and affiliations. That being said, party alignment should be, and for the most part is, based on beliefs and not solely on race. At least two of the people lasted here openly supported Obama, even though they are Republican. Both Colin Powell and Sheryl Underwood stated they were supporting Obama. I see nothing wrong with voting for someone who has your same ideals and beliefs. I can respect them, even if I don’t agree with them, more than I can someone who’s vote is based on race, or tradition and without knowledge.

    Blacks who were members of the Republican Party before the defection of the Dixiecrats in 1964 really don’t count, because I’m petty sure Booker Washington would be a Democrat if he were alive today, especially in light of their opposition to Civil Rights in the South, & racial integration.

      Robert Byrd was a Democrat hero until a couple of years ago when he thankfully died (and hopefully went to hell)… You’ve been indoctrinated with Liberal bullshit. Who again was against the Civil Rights movement? Al Gore Sr… The entire Democrat Party. The truth hurts no matter how you try to squirm and spin it.

      We have Democrats and Republicans. Dixiecrat is a made up term coined by Liberal Progressives to deflect from the actual truth.

      Speaking of which, why to progressives call themselves Liberals again? A classic Liberal is a Libertarian. Like always, progressives openly exposed there true selves and America cringed so they were forced to steal the name Liberal. A historical as well as modern parasite that needs to be squished with extreme prejudice.

      MLK would not be a Progressive/Liberal/Democrat I can assure you. He would be embarrassed by a party that utterly depends upon racism and is actually the most racist group in America today. Its all about race, gender and sexual preference and ZERO to do with skill, ability or merit… Demorats never change.

        I don’t think you can say with any degree of certitude what MLK would be, but judging by the racism I see evident in the Republican Party, I know he wouldn’t be in the GOP. Dixiecrat is an actual term used to describe all the Southern White Confederates who embraced the Goldwater Southern Strategy of “States Rights” & defected to the Republicans in the presidential election of 1964. The fact that you use the weasel-word Democrat Party in place of Democratic Party tells me all I need to know about you. You want to try & conflate the actions of people within the historical Democratic Party with the modern Democratic Party. Sorry, that dog won’t hunt, & no matter how you try to squirm & delude yourself, the Dixiecrats are in your party, not mine. The racists are in your party, not mine.

    Wow, after reading you’re comments and the responses to them, I’ve come to the conclusion that you are either being trolled hard core or you’re wasting your time arguing with retards. Their is a reason the most educated states voted dem and the least voted romney. One disagreement though: I may be mistaken, but the anti Christ isn’t really supposed to be one particular person.

      Universal indoctrination at the collegiate level. Predicted exactly by Joseph McCarthy himself. It would be ironic if it wasnt so anti American to the point of treason. The Democrat Party is owned by Trial Lawyers and run by Union mobsters and depends on Marx theory of useful idiots to gain and hold the levers of power. As has been proven with historical accuracy those same useful idiots and an apparatchik that is made happy with more scraps than his neighbor are the first to learn the hard truth of what happens when Govt runs out of other peoples money.

      The Ponzi schemes that are Social Security and Medicare along with all of the other Safety Net social programs are already deep into the process of collapse and our last and perhaps only hope was the 2012 election. Quantitative Easing to infinity is going to create massive hyper inflation very soon. After all inflation is just another Tax. Perhaps the most punitive Tax Govt imposes. The CPI has been manipulated no differently than Stalin, Hitler or any other Socilist manipulates data to fit their agenda. “By any means necessary” means exactly that and Progressives live by it.

      Since the fraudulent election we see Business contracting even further as any rational businessman that can do 8th grade math understands the tsunami that is approaching.

      No voter ID requirement, electronic voting machines easily hacked and absentee ballots along with the truth that those whom count the votes decides the vote have destroyed any credibility in America or its self imposed leaders. Putin, Chavez dont lose elections either. What people in the World are happiest about 0bamas supposed victory? Iran is thrilled…

      History is not going to look kindly upon this generation. The progressives from both parties have officially destroyed America.

    Including Booker T. Washington in this list is a little bit misleading. You see, the Democrats, during Booker T. Washington’s time, did not want blacks to be seen as equals. The parties operated in the exact opposite way they do today during his time. Many Republicans embraced the idea of helping blacks to become productive free citizens. After the New Deal, things switched.. Whites started to abandon the Democrats as they became disillusioned with the idea of giving up things (rights, land, etc) to blacks. They still saw blacks as inferior and viewed the shift of the Democratic party as detrimental to white interests. This caused them to abandon the Democrats. The Republican party started to shift as well. Those who left the Democrats joined the Republican party. Booker T really understood that there could be no true equality until and unless blacks were educated. He made that his focus. He was right.

  • Jabari

    Wow. That is sad, they really had to scrape the barrel to find 15 black “celebrities” that are Republican.

    4 of the people on this list are dead. Booker T Washington died almost 100 years ago. He hung out with Abraham Lincoln.

    Condi Rice and Colin Powell are republican politicians not celebrities. And Powell openly supported Obama.

    TOLD YOU SO, TOLD YOU SO!

I’ve insisted since Sept. 11th, 2012, Obama’s Administration lied to buy time (we’re gathering the facts), when 4 American SEALS (Including Our American Ambassador) deaths were “NOT OPTIONAL” per Obama’s WORDS. Obama’s words here, “Not Optional”, alone, are enough to Impeach and Indict Obama, Panetta, Clinton, any others involved (CIA?). Now Petraeus is claiming he is resigning due to an illicit marital affair – give me a break. I hope he will crack this “BOIL” wide open next week in this ongoing Investigation. (Meanwhile, Obama is hiding out on his ongoing Asian Countries’ Junket!) How convenient. Al Qaeda will soon be on our American doorsteps, if we don’t get this resolved QUICK!

    Wow! Some of the ignorant comments on this website are unbelievable! Maybe we should have a required civics test decide who is eligible to vote; perhaps the same one that new citizens have to pass. I’m sure that many people on this page could not begin to pass one.

    I’ll leave you with a quote from a man generally acknowledged as one of the most intelligent who ever lived, John Stuart Mill: “The conservative party is, according to the law of its existence, the party of ignorance.”

    Adios, dumbass Republicans.

  • Eugene

    This article is stupid because it starts by saying here are blacks that are not down with Obama. Then it talks about what they did in the past prior to Obama. Some are not even alive to vote. There are black republicans but what is well noted in the last two elections most voted for Obama and yes even black GOPers. Even Colin Powell.

  • Manzano

    The key to which party candidate to consider relates to the history of the party as it has behaved in the last 40 years. The Republican Party has intentionally developed a “do nothing” reputation with respect to how it views and treats ordinary Americans, and has attached itself to the concerns of the racist and the wealthiest, who now have become the constituency of today’s GOP. Eisenhower is widely seen to be the last honorable Republican to serve as President. The GOP has given itself over to incorporating certain methods taken from the Nixon “playbook”…methods that led to his resignation in shame. Looking back, the record shows that the major accomplishments that benefited all blacks were achieved under a Democrat President. Medicare, Medicaid, the Voting Rights Act, the Affordable Care Act to name a few. The GOP has no recent record of accomplishments that demonstrate a heart for improving the conditions of those who are struggling. Romney is a Republican whose party subscribed to devious tactics and schemes to get him elected as President. Almost 400 million dollars was spent via Karl Rove in effort to unseat President. Nothing worked. President Obama won the popular vote and the electoral college advantage, in spite of the combined strategies of the GOP. The 15 celebrities indicated here must have something in common with the hearts of the Republican Party. Perhaps it’s all about money.

  • Stop Starting Stuff

    When Roosevelt and Taft were in office the tenets of the Republican party were quite different. In fact, anyone you included before 1980 probably wouldn’t agree with the GOP today. Colin Powell did a commercial in favor of President Obama, and Sheryl Underwood actually campaigned for him also. This article if it was meant to be informative, just contributes to the already divisive and tense atmosphere that already exists. Your agenda is obvious.

  • Layne Franklin

  • Marian Y. Talley

    This was an extremely weak propoganda article. The supposed “Republican Tendencies” were not shown for most of the Afro-Americans listed. All are dated. When B.T. Washington and Zora Houston were Republicans, all Blacks were Republicans. The switch to being Democrats did not come until the 60′s. On your list of 15 only Condolesia Rice endorsed Romney during 2012. If these individuals were really Republicans today, an endorsement for most of them, especially T.D.Jakes would have meant much. This was a pitiful attempt to make up a news story. Sorry, Did you think we would fall for it?

  • Jimi103

    Wow a black man voting for Obama no surprise here, it’s sad how many Americans look past race as something as the past yet many black Americans vote for Obama cause he’s black, don’t believe me?

    Seriously– Zora Neale Hurston ??? Zora was an outstanding lady but it is not fair to infer she would have voted Republican in 2012 —- have you heard about what has happened to the structure of Eatonville due to the Bush years economic crash and educational reform? Not to mention women’s rights for health care! Additionally, Colin Powell is voting Democratic AGAIN!!! If you cannot get to 15 live black folks who are CURRENT celebreties voting for Romney… is this not a concern…. one would hope we don’t vote based on race anyway…. that would negate the freedom we have as American’s to use our voices. Should we be persuaded by celebrities anyway– it is unlikely our individual needs match the needs of celebrities

  • Samantha

  • I Know Better

    Three or four of these people are dead and several of the dead ones belonged to a Republican party that was very different from the republican party of today! I would say that just after the civil war most black people would have been republicans but that changed during the 1900′s when republicans were espousing segregation more so than democrates. For sure there were segregationists who were democrates but after secregation was struck down by a democratic president virtually the entire south has voted republican for president! People have the right to be republican if they want to but for me that is not an option because republicans don’t even show respect to black people and don’t even campaign for our votes. A few black republicans that act as GATEKEEPERS for the republicans won’t change how black people vote or what party they identify with!

    Wrong! The Tea Party movement IS the answer! The beauty of the “Tea Party” is that it is not an organized party at all. Rather it is a movement of people that are fed up with big government, liberal corruption, out of control spending, and skyrocketing debit! Here in Philadelphia a so called Black “professor” of an Ivy League institution said: “…it is easier to just call the Tea Party racist then…!”

    PS: The unemployment rate for Blacks is MUCH higher under Obama then Bush!

    • Reggie Noble

      That’s because society is becoming progressively owned by rich scumbags who exploit the working class of all races, not just Blacks.

      Also, all jobs aint equal as well.

      A job at McDonalds is not equal to a job as an accountant. Technically, both people are employed, but one is mopping up piss for minimum wage. Just having a “job” doesn’t matter. Making a living wage is what matters and both Democrats and Republicans have made it harder for the working class to make a living wage.

      • John Galt

        It is interesting to note that the “rich scumbags” you refer to are, by and large, Obama supporters! Obama’s crony capitalists have destroyed more jobs then any other group! If you are to truly see what is going on you must get past such terms as “Democrat” and “Republican”, give up racial divisions, and look at the things they do. Upholding the Constitution is our last best “HOPE”.

        • Tony Dockery

          True and you can also add the rest of the political scumbags… the congress and senate and state governors they are all bought and paid for by the crony capitalists who have bought out all of washington GOP DEm and maybe even some up an coming libertarians…All of them….thats why they were elected to protect them at the top ..and they do work diligently to earn their money…They get the good gravy we get the lumpy crap.

  • RoboNiner

    If you look at history, the African-American
    community has strongly been in the Democratic column for a long time.
    Starting in 1932, FDR garnered 71% of African-American vote. However,
    Republicans still were able to get at least a sizable percentage of the
    African-American vote. In Presidential Election of 1948, the majority of
    African-Americans identified themselves as Democrats instead of
    Republicans.

    The election of 1964 was the most significant
    moment that moved African-American population solidly into the
    Democratic camp. That year, President Lyndon Johnson was able to push
    through the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Republican candidate, Barry
    Goldwater came out against it. That year, President Johnson gained 94%
    of the African-American vote. No other Republican candidate has gained
    more than 15% of the African-American vote since that election.

    One thing that has been lost in this discussion is that hardly anyone
    takes the battle within the community on who to support during the
    Democratic Primary in 2008 into account. There were split within
    families on who to support. However, at the end of the day, the
    African-American community would have been solidly behind Hillary
    Clinton if she would have been the Democratic Party’s candidate in 2008.
    She would have beat Sen. McCain in 2008 just like President Obama did.
    If she would have won, some on the Republican side would have argued
    that people voted for her simply because she is a woman. However, it is
    much more difficult for people to argue that a person won because of
    gender than race. The risk of alienating potential voters because of
    their gender is way too great. Therefore, this argument would be less
    effective under those circumstances. If race were truly the main factor
    on who we vote for, than vast majority of African-Americans would have
    supported the candidacies of Rev. Jesse Jackson (1984, 1988), Rev. Al
    Sharpton (2004) Alan Keyes (1996, 2000, 2008), and Herman Cain (2012)
    more heavily supported than what they were.

    I am sure that
    there are some within the community that voted for President Obama
    because of his race. However, you also can’t argue the fact that some
    voted for Sen. John McCain because of his race. However, that is lost in
    the discussion because of, well, he lost. However, to try to simplify
    that the vast majority of people voted for or against a candidate
    strictly because of his/her race is ignorant at best and intellectually
    lazy at worst. It all comes down to policy positions and who people
    trust to hold the highest office in the land.

    The sad fact is
    that since Nixon implemented the “Southern Strategy” during the 1968
    election, there has not been a serious effort by the Republican Party to
    reach out to the African-American voting population since Jack Kemp ran
    for President in 1988. Former Republican Party National Chairman
    Michael Steele did attempt to make some overtures to reach out during
    his tenure. However, under the current chairman, Reince Priebus, those
    efforts have been curtailed.

    We need ALL parties to fight for
    EVERYONE’s vote. Writing off an entire segment of the population,
    especially with our changing demographics, is extremely reckless and
    short-sighted. Eventually, those votes are going to be needed. It is
    difficult to build inroads with any community, if there is little or no
    attempt to do so. If the Republican Party does not recognize this or
    fails to address this need, there may come a time when the Republican
    Party goes the way of the Whig Party, replaced by another national
    political party, and fade into the annals of history.

  • shaz

    At least people are starting to realize that we now actually have the PRIVILEGE to vote our conscience, rather than what someone else says we should vote. Somehow people think the pressure the pressure to vote according to someone else’s mandate improves, simply because the pressure originates from someone of my own color.

    It does NOT.

    Many people died to give us the privilege to make our choices based not on the color of my skin or someone else’s, but rather on the content of my character & perception of the character & skills of others. (Forgive the loose paraphrase!) As for me, I’m thrilled that more people are getting out to take advantage of this blessing and privilege to BE ABLE TO VOTE!

    We all have our views and opinions of the issues and resolution strategies, and despite the rumor spreading through parts of our community, WE ARE NOT ALL ALIKE. So hopefully those who’ve helped make the environment of our current election so hostile will calm down and allow other individuals to indulge in the privilege of thinking for themselves, and voting their own conscience. I’m praying that those trying to incite riots depending on the outcome will come to their senses no matter which way the election ends.

    God’s wisdom, peace, and blessings on you all.

  • Sailorman

    I agree with your list except for Powell. It’s my understanding that the vast majority of black Americans were Republicans until about FDR’s regime. Booker T. Washington(not ‘and the MGs’, although they were fantastic) was among, if not the greatest, black American in history.

    Barack Obama was not the only black person on the ballot in the ’08 election, so wouldn’t the vote have been split if we voted black.

  • conservativemama

    As long as blacks fought for Democrats in the numbers they do, their lot will not improve. They already give Democrats what they need from the black community, their vote. The party doesn’t have to do anything to earn that vote. So why would the Democratic party change their behavior? Democrats have lots of other constituent groups to cater to and with every new group, blacks get pushed further back in line.

    You’re still sitting in the back of the bus, but this time you’ve put yourself there. Don’t you think you deserve better than that? You are the people who survived slavery. Why chain yourselves to a new master?

  • livingsimply

    This article is really stretching it. Reaching back to Booker T. Washington as a “black celeb” with republican tendencies is a little much. Anyhow, many people say that if Teddy Roosevelt were alive today, he would be considered a Democrat. Saying “Barack Obama is not the man for the job” does not necessarily equal Republican Tendencies. Saying that you like George W. Bush because “I see a lot of me in him” does not equal Republican Tendencies. And for most of these people, there is no reference to the candidate they currently support, just a mention that they liked G.W. Bush…. The title of the article is misleading, making the reader believe that these people have rejected Obama’s policies for those of the Republican party. Not so. Barack Obama is never mentioned in the photo captions; the writer did not bother to learn of their current political leanings. And, does The Rock identify as black?

  • snt2

    If you vote for Obama, are you voting for his black half, or his white half? Why is race an issue if when you flip a coin and it lands on heads he’s black and if it lands on tails he’s white? Race is NOT an issue, especially with Obama. People should be voting on his record and his policies which on the best of days is lacking.

In other words I don’t see LL Cool Jay as part of the 95% that vote obama just because he is black. That is so stupid.

    Some of the people listted we already know that are republicans such Rice and Powell. However Powell should not be listed because he has endorsed Obama in both elections. Booker T. and Zora are probably republican from the old party. Lets not forget we as blacks were republicans first.

  • donnafrflorida

    George wallace and david duke were democrats.. what they wont teach you.

  • Jimmy B

    Placing Booker T Washington, without the historical context is laughable. In the late nineteenth century most Blacks were Republican because “Jim Crow” was very much alive in the Democrat South. Not that Republican actually enforced the Civil Rights laws they passed after the Civil War. However, we can’t ignore the southern Democrat Party’s racist past. I mean Woodrow Wilson thought “Birth of a Nation” was a great film.

  • OmoT

    The problem with we black people is we don’t think, don’t look at things on the long run and we don’t read. Now, for you to say that black people are always looking for hand out means to me that you have bought into the white stereotype of black people. That is nonsense talk and foolishness bearing in mind that the population of black people in this country is about 12% then how can you make such a statement? We black people are our own worst enemy and you are one of our problem.

  • Juanes

    Is the Rock “only” black? The fact he’s half Samoan and raised mostly outside the US in Polynesian culture should make him Asian…..like his famous grandfather.

    Lets see, I suppose, according to the logic used here, there is then no such thing as Latinos? If a white latino exists, he’s either White or Black but not Latino/Hispanic or Asian for that matter. How convenient.

    How do these folks account for 95% of the blacks voted for Obama in 2008 if it wasn’t because they consider Obama to be black? History does not support the huge number of blacks that voted in 2008! Obama got many white voers because they considered McCain to be another Dubya. Obama was in the right place at the right time and got elected.

  • lang671

    I am tired of people saying that the gop isn’t racist it is racist look at who is supressing the vote, look at the number of voters fraud, look at the state rep in arkansas said that he supported slavery and it did good for the black people, look at how they disrespect this president worse than any sitting president in american history, look how they are treating the poor, middle class, blacks, latino’s, muslims, seniors, women and other minority groups this country has gotten worse under the republican ruling ever since barack obama came into office they were plotting to make him a one term president ever since he got elected now tell me this isn’t racist his policies are similar to bush but better look at the economy is slowly coming back with the obstructionist party trying their best to flush this country down the toilet because they hate this president. People wake up this gop party today is the dixcrats of yesterday believe me and the gop party of yesterday is the modern democrat party today. history has reverse itself and look at it now another thing democratic party isn’t the party of welfare if you look over the years whose party is best on jobs, economy, healthcare, education is the democratic party did you listen to bill clinton speech at the democratic convention the U.S. is a big failure under the leadership of the republicans it always the democrats who clean up the mess the gop leaves behind now lets see who is the party for the people and who is the party for the rich, corporations, big banks, oil all the gop want to do is dereglate everything and screw our environment by drilling and drilling the gop isn’t a big fan of the environment thats why they want to get rid of that department we need to vote democrat all the way to save our nation from these corporate vultures who are telling there workers that they be laying them off if obama gets reelected thats ashame this country is becoming another china and russia

  • cdck

    So this isn’t considered a racist headline and story. Black celeberties should vote for BO because he is a “brother’.!!!! It’s actually very insulting Polls show 95% blacks voting for BO again. If polls showed 95% whites voting for Romney there would be demonstrations. Just remember the % of whites voting for BO the first time is what got him elected.

  • nyblondii

    How about Jackie Robinson or Stacey Dash?

  • keleolisa

    I’m left pretty disappointed by this list. It appears to have rushed and quickly thrown together. A number of the people on the list hardly qualify as ‘celebrities’. I’ve never thought that politicians and public servants count as such. Equally disappointing is the fact that MN could not find enough people who are still living to bring the list to 15! Really? Booker T. Washington? Funny that the title of the article is “Not down with Brother Obama?” and you include Colin Powell on this list. Are you forgetting the headlines that were made by his controversial endorsement of then Senator Obama? Being a Republican does not necessarily mean being anti Obama. Some of the people on this list aren’t even proven Republicans. Just a poor job all around, MN…

  • theslowrider

    You guys really missed it on Colin Powell! He’s openly stated his support for Obama! He’s definitely a race voter. Pretty sad.

  • Will

    I am shock to find that the 15 blacks you chose in this article has 3 who have been dead for at least 25 years, 5 who will not even say they are republicans, 4 who are getting paid by the republican party and the rest are people who say they are all about money. What a winning endorsement for your party. With a list like this I can not see why blacks will not flock to GOP. NOT.

  • chris b

    I`m really surprised at the level of lying/ and or ignorance on this site. You people either make up your own truths or just blatantly lie on these issues. Lets talk about voter suppression and voter intimidation, lets talk about code phrases like `I want my country back`, the President is a socialist marxist (oxymoron), he is not one of us, all code that this nation is changing, and a power shift is iminant. Many white managers of business are seeing this and fighting desperately to prevent it. They control the money and the media, and are brainwashing whomever they can to keep their power.

    I get tired of the South being pegged for racism. Morgan Freeman can do anything he wants with his money, but he chose to open a nightclub in Mississippi–must not have such awful memories. Lionel Ritchie, if the south was so bad, could have moved his whole family out of Tuskegee, AL if it was so awful for Blacks there. True, there are some prejudiced people here, who make sweeping generalizations, but when it comes to one-on-one, human interactions are not based on color. I grew up in the segregated south and was required to say yes ma’m and no sir to Black adults just the same as white adults, and if I had used the “N” word, my mouth would have been washed out with soap while a hickory switch was applied to my other end. President Obama is using the Blacks as a voting block–he cares nothing about bettering their lives, only keeping them dependent so that their votes can be bought. He has never lived one day of his life as a Black American and he does not share their heritage or their struggles, but so many do not look past the color of his skin.

      Um, your statement would have more veracity to it were it not for the fact that abortions are ELECTIVE, not mandatory or forced…as is the sexual act that led to the pregnancy, for the most part. If they had a sign above the door stating how they love aborting minority babies, you’d have a valid point.

      A better argument would have mentioned the racist history of Margaret Sanger and her impact on the birth control movement which spawned Planned Parenthood.

Republicans are the ONLY reason the Civil Rights Act ever passed. The Dems FOUGHT it hard.

      to one of bigotry and racism. Since then

      one who slammed democrats as the party of “Maddox, Mahoney, and Wallace”? Wait, you’re talking about Nixon’s use of the
      Southern strategy, right? Then you must
      mean the Richard Nixon who said “people in the ghetto have to have more than an
      equal chance. They should be given a
      dividend,” and chose Spiro Agnew, a man
      known for opposing racial discrimination in public housing, as a running
      mate. Obviously these were appeals to a

    You both are wrong, you can’t compare the GOP of today with the GOP of the past, the switch happened in the 50′s with the 53 civil rights act. The dems supported it, and was signed in by democratic president, johnson, the GOP opposed the dems not specifically in this issue but on the idea the states had the right to control their schools. In the end this is where the dems lost “solid south” and the GOP became the party of the racist, segregationist like strom Thurmond switched parties famously as did they other racist. And that’s the history, the idea hat the dems or gop have held the same views for hundreds of years is preposterous.

        Saying you need to evidently need to brush up on your American history, is not an argument, it’s an opinion.

        - From the New York Times

        “In 1964, Mr. Thurmond switched parties to back the Republican nominee for president, Senator Barry M. Goldwater. Four years later Mr. Thurmond held the South for Richard M. Nixon’s nomination and election, after assuring Southerners that Mr. Nixon, as president, would go easy on civil rights.”

        As I stated it was the signing of the civil rights bill by Johnson, in ’64, not 53 (I was thinking of the ’57 civil rights act which delt with voter laws) that first push Thurmond over the edge, although he had backed Republican candidates before this was the first time he officially switched party affiliation. Finally, the South would completely turn from blue to red in the 60′s because civil rights initiatives were at this point being led by democrats who were in power. AGain, the GOP of today is not made up or remotely akin to the GOP of LIncoln. Case in point The GOP of Lincoln’s day were considered “the progressives”.

        Furthermore, I would like to re-iterate that again the GOP today is not the GOP of the past, nor will it likely be the same party in 60 years or the next 100.

    Hey if you are going to use dead people, Just the facts Martin Luther King and Medgar Evars were both GOP.

  • Parties have switched

    Citing Booker Washington seems kind of absurd. The parties switched bases gradually sometime between, say 1896 and 1932. During the civil war, Democrats were agrarian centered and for state’s rights. Republicans represented northern business interests and being city folk they were more socially liberal.

    Now Republicans still represent big business and have become very socially conservative. Democrats continue to look out for the poor, as they when they were agrarian centered, but that dynamic is gone since something like less than 2 percent of the population is farmers. There base moved to cities and likewise became much more socially liberally. Till recently for example southern democrats were still exceeding socially conservative, aka Regan democrats.

    Two of my favorite liberal Presidents were Lincoln and Wilson, but they were Republicans. Wilson was opposed by a New England isolationist, representing business interests, Henry Cabot Lodge. He was a Dem. These people i think would be unlikely to belong to the same parties today, especially Booker T.

    • Krista

      Woodrow Wilson was a Democrat; Lodge was a Republican.

    I will preface my remarks with a few facts. First, I am white. Second, I am a conservative independent. Third, I spent 20 years serving this country, and that includes everyone in it regardless of their color or whether or not I agree with their personal views. I am not in the business of telling people who to vote for or what party they should support – these are personal choices, but I will make an observation. Back in the 1960′s when LBJ was pushing his social welfare programs, he was heard to remark that with their passage, that ‘the Democrats had just secured the black (He actually did not say black – he used the n word) vote for the next 100 years’. In other words, he and many of his fellow democrats, including many in the party today, were and are not interested in actually helping black poeple. They are simply trying to buy your vote with a welfare check or some other assistance, and at the same time, successfully convincing a lot of people that they cannot make it without the government giving them a handout. I am all for a social safety net that helps people get by if they lose their job or physically cannot work. What I am absolutely against is the idea of able bodied young men and women who get paid to do nothing, and I certainly feel no obligation to support them with my hard earned money – Nobody ‘owes’ anyone anything. I am also tired of being the scapegoat for those who cannot get their act together: I have never ‘oppressed’ any black person, nor have I ever done anything to ‘keep someone down’. My attitudes on this apply equally to my fellow whites that would rather work the system than actually work. Last, I think people who are so obsessed with with the issue of race, to the point it is all about race all of the time, are either mentally ill, or have something to gain by keeping up bad feelings between blacks and whites. Please consider what I have said with an open mind, especially the last part. Look beyond mere words, party platforms, and campaign speeches, and see what people really stand for, not just by words but by deeds. Make an informed, intelligent choice before you vote.

  • robodoc

    Here are the facts: Slavery, the ultimate form of racism, started in the South. The South was run by democrats who violently objected, i.e. the civil war, to the abolition of slavery. The South fought against the North, largely Republican, and a Republican president, Lincoln who ulimately freed the slaves and abolished slavery. If they had their way, many dems in the South today would prefer that slavery still existed. Take Gov. Geo Wallace , democrat from Alabama, and his stance on segregation forbidding blacks and whites from attending school together.
    Make no mistake, the democratic party has never been a friend of the blak race. It continues today, as the democratic party shackles blacks with the chains of entitlement.

    neither party is for us…we need to accept that reality..

    And when we speak of historical figured like Zora Neal Hurtson we MUST do so within proper context. Most Black folks were Republicans (the party that ended slavery) up until the Election of Roosevelt in 1932. The switch was made solid with Goldwater in 1964 and perment with Bush in 2000.

    Moreover, just because one is registered does not equate to party loyalty. Negroes need to stop acting like the Black tea party cause folks ain’t down with President Obama

  • ACertainJeNeSaisQuoi

    Idk where people get this crazy idea that the GOP of today is the same as the GOP of the pre-civil war era and a little post-civil war. That was forever ago. The republicans didn’t fight for civil rights because they wanted black rights..they really didn’t care one way or the other whether the south or west had slaves or not. They fought for that because they wanted the Union back together (because they knew US would be stronger all together than it apart), and they knew that using the slaves would make people more willing to cooperate and if they didn’t then it would bring war and make a lot of people think, “well hey! All you had to do was stop with the slavery and this massive war wouldn’t have happened in the first place!!!!!” Also, the GOP didn’t see any need for slaves. Most of the GOP was still up north and had the industrial revolution. And if you look at it, the Republicans of that time and the Democrats of that time kinda switched. Democrats back there were all about religion and things like that and Republicans weren’t. However the Republicans today stand on religion and the Democrats don’t so much. And that’s just one example. Also, even Abraham Lincoln was racist. He wasn’t ahead of his time… of course, he did warm up to things, but he was definitely racist first.

      In my experience, I only experienced racism from Blacks. They think nothing of making fun of someone’s race. Just the other day, I was walking out of the public Library when a group of black teens hanging out in front made a “ching-chong-ching” sound as my Asian wife walked by. Of course, if the roles were reversed, the Asian youths would have be on trial for their lives for a hate crime. In 25 years of a mixed race marrage, and I lived in NYC, western US, and “the South”, I never so much as gotten a strange look from a white person, but mostly from Blacks. Equality goes both ways…as long as there are people that are more equal than others, we will have a problem. And this saddens me.

    You’re missing out on a LOT of big names here, some of which many Americans would recognize as real “celebrities” and others who were pioneers in African American empowerment but whose names have been lost to most Americans by virtue of a horrible educational system run by overwhelmingly Democratic local school boards across the country who don’t want kids to learn how much of African American history was driven by Republicans.

    Here’s a good head-scratcher: how is it that the Obama administration and the Democratic Congress managed to “forget” to make a big deal about the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth in 2009, during the presidency of the first African American president for pete’s sake!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! You’d think it would have been a PERFECTLY TIMED celebration, wouldn’t you? Oh, yeah, except then the Democrats would be forced to explain where the heck they WERE on civil rights for African Americans during Lincoln’s era and for more than a century afterward. Mystery solved.

    Part 3 just disappeared, at any given rate both Grover Norquist and alarge portion of the republican legislaters that have pledged to him have defaulted on their pledge to our Constitution, and the House&Senate committee on Ethics has not moved as our Constitution states.. Thisall started in secret meetings held behind closed doors, nowe theres more as far as secret meetings be aware they the republicans have also agreed to block obama on all fronts, to make him a one term president and to go down in history as the first Blac resident that was a Lame Duck and accomplihed nothing…Sen Mich McConnel (R-Mass) Sen Eric Cantor (R-Vir) have held such meetings! Research it you’ll see. They are purposely filierbusting any proposal or bill brought before them in order to halt its passage, Do you understyand they; the same ones that get to see insider trades and buy stocks , pledged to some fictitious agreement against our Constitution ,with secret meetings are holding our president hostage with their racist ,bigotry actions blocking him, they can-not afford a black president to help or cure the economic crisis.I’m on FB if you think you need to say something…

    YOU SHOULD HAVE INCLUDED MLK, SR. AND MLK, JR.

    By Dr. Alveda C. King – Niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    In 1960, Senator John F. Kennedy defeated sitting Vice President
    Richard Nixon in the bid to become president. The black vote
    swung the
    tide! My grandfather, Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr., or “Daddy
    King”,
    was a Republican and father of Dr. Martin Luther
    King, Jr. who was a Republican. Daddy King
    influenced a reported 100,000 black
    voters to cast previously Republican votes for Senator
    Kennedy
    even though Kennedy had voted against the 1957 Civil
    Rights Law. Mrs. King had appealed to Kennedy and Nixon to
    help
    her husband, and Nixon who had voted for the 1957 Civil Rights
    Law did not respond. At the urging of his
    advisors, Kennedy made a politically calculated phone call to
    Mrs.
    King, who was pregnant at the time, bringing the attention of
    the
    nation to Dr. King’s plight. Moved by Mrs. King’s gratitude for
    Senator Kennedy’s intervention, Daddy King was very grateful to
    Senator
    Kennedy for his assistance in rescuing Dr. King, Jr. from a life
    threatening jail encounter. This experience led to a
    black exodus from the Republican
    Party. Thus, this one simple act of gratitude caused black
    America to
    quickly forget that the Republican Party was birthed in America
    as the
    anti- slavery party to end the scourge of slavery and combat the
    terror
    of racism and segregation.

    • Magus

      Alveda King is a liar who simply exploits the name of her uncle that she barely knew & who would find her politics repugnant.

      MLK Sr was a Republican until he switched parties to support Kennedy but MLK Jr was never a Republican. He was too left-wing even to be a Democrat. MLK Jr was openly socialist.

  • aramssim

    I’ve been treated disrespectfully by black people many times because I am white, but I’ve never returned the disrespect. Black people are so quick to consider themselves mistreated and to mistreat others because they are a different race, they continue to use the “race” card.
    As long as they see themselves as the victim they will be needy and oppressed. They have so many opportunities merely because they are black. They are so prejudiced, that they encourage the stereotype.
    My family of origin was outspoken against racism (from whites toward blacks). My brother, as an adult, did much to bring equality to blacks in Cincinnatti. We were activists in teaching and exemplifying love and equality for all the races, especially the black race.
    Then we moved to an all-black (wealthy) neighborhood. My kids and I were treated rudely and made fun of because we were white. We held no negative stereotypes for blacks before we moved in. We learned that racism from blacks against whites is alive and well!
    We still continue to hold to our values, that God created everyone equal, but we are not naive about the racist attitudes that many blacks justify holding toward whites. It is dishonest to only acknowledge racism one way, and not the other way. The longer I live, the more it seems that more blacks are like that than I realized.

Black voters base their decisions on what the RNC is doing TODAY, not what they did 150 years ago.

    Since it didn’t take 4 years for the economy to tank, it surely couldn’t take 4 (really less) for it to rebound.The investments made in the country, the auto industry, etc actually allowed the US to recover and although it is going in the right direction there is still more to do. Romney would have let the millions of auto industry jobs die because that is how he sees business. Venture capitalist only see profit/loss sheets and screw the human capitol. If you think Romney is telling the truth, calculate what it would cost to invest in infrastructure when our kids are adults. President Obama’s capital investment now, not only preserved our infrastructure but it preserved and created necessary jobs. Today’s road project is projected to cost 4-5 times as much when our children are responsible. Real business owners know that a major failing of business is the lack of timely capital investment. We definitely do not need a president who’s big picture does not include working class American
    families. I am a black woman business owner and since I know I can meet
    my family’s needs , profit is not my only factor in how much I am
    willing to “sow” into my country. I cannot support a man for President who only “sows” into companies and people if the number at the bottom of the page has the right percentage points.

He spews garbage and stupid people believe it instead of doing a little research and finding that the 47% includes Veterans, the Disabled, and people on social security. Why is it OK for members of congress, many of whom are multimillionaires to get FREE healthcare and it’s not OK for the WalMart or Target employee that makes $8.00 an hour. Why does he pay 15% income tax and I pay 31%, he can afford 31% a lot more than I can on the 55 grand that I make. By the way I also have to buy my own HEALTHCARE.

    political correctness in this country is stupid. “stupid is as stupid does” comes to mind. Take a look at the policies of the candidates for each party and see how the policies align with your own policies. Take a blind test and vote for the candidate that aligns better with you than without. Anyone who votes for obama because he’s black is STUPID and anyone who votes for Romney because he’s not black is also STUPID.

    When I was working to get John F. Kennedy elected in Texas as the democratic president I visited lots of elderly black americans – know what, most were republicans and I asked them why they were republicans, their answer – Abraham Lincoln was a republican and he freed the slaves! Bless their heart after all those years they still believed in being a republican. I still say it’s not the party, but what is inside the people who run for their position in congress and the president and their own agenda: what’s good for the people or what’s good for them and their backers. At 85 I have watched politics all my life and I’ll take the man who really and truly votes for the people not the ones who want to line their pocket and that of their friends and corporations for their greed, power and control of the masses.

    Someone posted something really smart here – don’t just get your information from hearsay, but do some research on both parties/both candidates. There are people who just vote “Democrat” because they think democrats are for the middle class and the poor. My family immigrated to this country so we can work hard and have the opportunities for the American dream, and to me that is what the Republican party represents. For me, democrats are all about growing the government sector, instead of growing the private sector – helping small business owners. I think President Obama winning in 2008 was great for this country because he opened the door to other minorities of becoming future presidents of this great country. But now its 2012 and we need to look at what’s happening to this country and vote for the candidate who will bring this country back up!

    I was working in California, in 1996, building machine tools. Being near a USMC training camp, we had a few former and retired military in the plant. One black-American gent who worked in shipping always dressed “the dress code” and took a few references to Blazing Saddles in stride. He was dating a good looking girl who resembled Ann Margaret. Later on the company hired a
    black-American who had piercings, and wore his clothing loosely, underwear showing, etc. Eventually the new guy began a relationship with the Ann Margaret look-alike, and not long afterwards a fight on the loading docks ended the employment of both men.

    Black people who claim to love black peple and love Jesus all voted in lock step solidarity for a man who publicly admitted he would allow his own grandchildren to be aborted if necessary. Black christians, as we hold our Bibles, will all vote in support of gay marriage just to keep a black man President. Black people can look both at Detroit and their black president and still say, with a straight face, that white racism remains our biggest problem. Sadly, we as a race of people have no moral intelligence, integrity and courage. God help us.

    Dreadful article. First of all, the Rock isn’t black. Dr. Condoleeza isn’t a “celebrity,” she was “only” the first African American and second female secretary of state, was national security advisor, and a provost at Stanford as well as an accomplished pianist and neither is Colin Powell. And really, talking about Zora Neale Hurston and Booker T Washington, like they were still voting when Reagen was president…….Third and finally, The voting rights act was not so all African Americans had to vote for their tribe, it was so they (and every citizen regardless of race) had the choice to vote and vote for whomever they wished too. African Americans are not taken seriously because of their primitive camp mentality and their magazines being filled with celebrities and ANOTHER tiresome Ebony magazine issue about Michelle Obama’s wardrobe…..Why is it that EVERYONE ELSE can vote for anyone they want and it’s called patriotism but we are “Uncle Toms” when we are outside of the camp. If we are really honest, 99 percent of the vote for Obama by African Americans are simply because he is bi-racial. And TD Jakes, are you kidding me……..don’t get me started on the Black Church and it’s 10,000 BC ultra-conservative social attitudes

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Greg-Eatroff/1013946885 Greg Eatroff

    Notice how Steve Golac lists events fifty to 150 years ago? There’s a reason for that. The GOP was founded as an anti-slavery party, but it abandoned blacks and embraced increasingly racist policies after the Civil War. A Republican-dominated Supreme Court approved segregation in Plessy v Ferguson. Republicans began forming “lily white” parties in southern states around the turn of the last century. Hoover embraced openly racist policies to recruit southern whites into the GOP. Eisenhower tried to reverse things by supporting integration, but from Goldwater’s opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to Reagan and Bush race-baiting (Willy Horton?) to the “Birthers” the GOP has gotten more and more racist. Oh, and rememer Klansman David Duke being the Republican candidate for governor of Louisiana?

    As for the Democrats, they were intensely racist 150 years ago, but by the 1930s the national party was reaching out to blacks, giving them higher civil and military posts than ever before, etc. The court that struck down segregation in Brown v. Board was led by Republican Earl Warren, but the other 8 judges were Democrats. Oh, and those racist Dixiecrats Golac mentioned? Guys like Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms? Why gosh, they jumped over to the GOP when the Democrats started pushing hard for civil rights. A few like Byrd stayed Democrats, but they renounced their earlier racism.

    So don’t fall for Golac’s trickery. It’s a deliberate and extremely clumsy distortion of history.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Keith-Davidson/100001017183306 Keith Davidson

      Greg Eatroff, you conveniently leave out some key facts in your
      dissertation as you try to prove an untenable position that Republicans are
      innately racist over and above Democrats. You say, “The Republicans began
      forming “lily white” parties in the south?” Oh really? The truth
      is, there were no Lily White “parties”, plural, and Republicans historically have always been and are still FOR the rights of ALL Americans. Allow me to illustrate. The phrase “Lily
      White Movement” was given derogatorily to one faction “within”
      the Republican Party by Norris Wright Cuney, African-American Activist and
      Chairman of the Texas Republican Party. Cuney was the son of a rich white senator
      and plantation owner, Col. Philip Cuney and one of his slaves, Adeline Stuart. The movement is largely credited with driving blacks out of the Republican
      party during the early 20th century, setting the stage for their eventual
      support of the Democrats. Immediately following the civil war, all of
      the Southern states enacted “Black Codes”, laws intended specifically
      to curtail the rights of the newly freed slaves, also known as the “Freedmen”.
      Now pay attention, Mr. Eatroff: Many Northern states also enacted their own
      “Black Codes” restricting or barring black immigration. Also in the
      1870s through early 1890s, Democrats in Southern states used various methods to
      suppress the votes of blacks. Republicans responded by challenging the election
      results and overturning them in order to count the votes of blacks. However the Civil Rights Act of 1866 nullified most of
      the “Black Code” laws and the federal Freedman’s Bureau was able to regulate
      many of the affairs of Southern blacks. Groups such as the “Union League”, which
      supported the Republican Party with funding, organizational support, and
      political activism, and the “Radical Republicans”,
      which strongly opposed slavery during the war and emphasized civil rights
      and voting rights for the Freedmen, sought total equality and complete
      integration of blacks into American society. It is also noteworthy that
      DEMOCRAT President Andrew Johnson vetoed the Civil Rights Act of 1866, not once
      but twice. It was by a two-thirds Republican majority in each chamber that Congress
      overcame Johnson’s veto the second time and the bill became law. So, I guess there
      are two real lessons to be learned here, the first is yours, Mr. Eatroff, and
      that is don’t try to revise history, smarter people than you are paying
      attention. The second lesson, is that when the Great One, Barack Obama had the
      majority in both chambers of Congress for the first two years of his
      administration, the blessed and enlightened, NON-RACIST Democrats never even
      presented a single measure to address immigration reform. But the history
      lesson YOU tried to give today proves that if there are any active racists in
      politics today, it is most assuredly sir YOU and your DEMOCRATS! Have a nice
      day!

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/2XLSCH4OGANFQAD6GEVFH4MC5Y krystal

        No sir, he was not a Democrat, David Duke ran as a Republican for Governor of Louisianna, when he was a Republican state senator he sold Mein Kampf out of his office. Again, you talk about the parties as if they never switched places on civil rights in the 1960s. When LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act he said this would cost Democrats the South for generations and it did. Twits who know no better claim Republicans passed the Civil Rights Act and Democrasts voted against it. But that is a convenient distortion. Dem and Rep House and Senate members from the South and Southwest voted together against the Act, and members from the North, Midwest and West coast voted for. It was the 1968 Nixon campaign that brought in the “Southern Strategy,” of blaming everything on Democrats, integration and welfare.

Reductions on the work requirement placed on welfare by Congress in the 90′s under Clinton. Pretty much everything Obama has promised to people who don’t want to “pay their fair share” while he demands that the only people who really ARE paying their fair share must “pay more”.

    First of all, I’m well aware that the Republicans freed the slaves and of their part during the civil rights era. I don’t need a history lesson. Thanks. And I don’t think that my statement was Pro-Democrat or Anti-Republican so calm it down. No one is debating the historical significance of the Republicans to African Americans. I just personally don’t believe that the Republicans of yesteryear and the Republicans of today really hold the same values when it comes to race relations. And I also know the racist history of the Democrats, but I wasn’t talking about them. I also think that as far as values go, Republicans have a lot more in common with the black community and if it wasn’t for the racist vibes that the Republican party seems to give off, I think they would have no problem winning almost every election. You might not feel this way and that’s fine. I’m just saying I don’t think you can really compare modern Republicans or Democrats for that matter, to those of years ago.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Keith-Davidson/100001017183306 Keith Davidson

      eyeEEsha I dare say the only reason many people believe that of today’s Republicans is simply because that’s what they’ve heard so much that they just take it as status quo. You know what they say, “repeat a lie enough times and people will begin to believe it”. Unfortunately Republicans and southern whites have been the victims of this cruel and unfair tactic, which comes primarily from liberals and the leftist Democrats. Odd that they are always the ones who start pointing the finger and bringing race into every discussion and yet it’s the Republicans who are labeled the racists. It just doesn’t make sense that a demographic of people would start out not racist and somehow become racist over time. I think it’s more likely that people who start out racist may be prone to lose their racist tendencies over time due to the simple fact that racism is by definition such an ugly and socially unacceptable thing. I do not purport that the Republican party, or the South for that matter is free and clear of racism; God knows I see racism rear its ugly head far too often where I live. I’m just saying I can tell you with extreme confidence that it is not as prevalent as the liberal left will have you believe. Listening to people like Joe Biden say “They gawn’ put y’all back in chains”, and Sheila Jackson Lee accusing the Republicans of speaking in racist code words, they would have everyone thinking that if you’re white and Republican, and especially if you’re from the South, then there’s no way you’re not racist. Absolutely rediculous and patently false. Just sayin’

    “Dreams From My Father”, Obama wrote disdainfully about
    blacks who complain about being poor, yet continue to vote
    for Democrats — like Obama — who keep them poor. On page
    147 of his book, Obama described what he and his fellow
    Democrats do to poor blacks as “plantation politics” when
    he wrote: “A plantation. Black people in the worst jobs.
    The worst housing. Police brutality rampant. But when the
    so-called black committeemen came around election time,
    we’d all line up and vote the straight Democratic ticket.

I am a registered Democrat but I have some “conservative tendencies.” Most black folk that I know whethter they’re Democrat, Republican, Independent, etc. believes that people should work, spend wisely, pay taxes and on and on… Can Blair write an article “15 White Celebs who have Democratic Tendencies?
    Perhaps, Blair should study American History as well.

    Not one on your list of 15 is a surprise to the African American community. Rev. AL or Farrakhan as Republicans, now that would have surprised Black America. I am a Conservative Democrat which means that I do not support homosexual rights, Human Rights apples to all we don’t need special rights for any special class of Americans.

    Before the Republicans decided it was in their best interests to pursue a southern strategy, appealing to former segregationist Democrats, the Republican Party was the party of Civil Rights. They have since turned their back on that heritage and forfeited any claim to be the “Party of Lincoln.” The Democratic Party is now that party. You also failed to mention that Colin Powell endorsed President Obama in 2008…

    I used to be a Republican because my family was and still is but as I’ve gotten older I identify as a Libertarian. To me, the government is ineffective and not efficient and I believe life is best when our government has little involvement in it. Unfortunately it seems like a lot of my peers are very misinformed about how government and the economy really work. I am white and it seems to me that it is acceptable that white people can have any poltical beliefs that they want but black people have to be liberal or a Democrat. While I typically disagree with the extremes on both sides (Republican & Democrats) that’s what makes this country great… we are a wide spectrum of people. Racism has no place in politics (or any where!) and I feel like the government tries to pit us against eachother. Read How an Economy Grows and Why is Crashes… this book helped me understand the economy and it is a great read!!

    I have one other question. Why should it make any difference if ANYONE gets a tax break, if you’re not paying taxes yourself? If you have taxes taken out, and then get it back at the end of the year, you’re not a taxpayer at all. At best, all you’re doing is floating the federal government a free loan.

    • Superabound

      Are you talking about all the billionaires that pay ZERO taxes, or the 2/3 of all corporations that not only pay ZERO taxes, they actually get money back from the government in the form of subsidies? They pay NEGATIVE taxes, billions and billions of negative taxes.

      • ThatGuy

        I’d just like to point out the fallacy of your argument. If 47% of Americans don’t pay taxes, and all the rich people pay no taxes, and 2/3rd of all corporations pay no taxes, then where the hell does the tax revenue that funds our government come from? The tooth fairy?

        There are ZERO billionaires or corporations that “pay ZERO taxes”….NONE! Really, this is such BS you are spewing. Subsidies are not “negative taxes”. Think they are….great….you got a “subsidy” in the road you drive to work on (ask the O)…your share is a few thousand….the police dept that protects you…a few thousand more….the public schools you attended….a few thousand more….you didn’t have to pay private companies for those services. When the govt givea a “subsidy” to a type of company (farms for instance) they do it for the greater good of the American economy (and sometimes to by votes…if you are the O).
        You really ought to get a tiny amount of education on economics before you post on the topic

    Back in the day, most Blacks in the south were Republican, as was MLK…no surprise there as whites in the south were Democrats. That was back in the day. Nixon changed all that with the Southern Strategy and pretty much told Blacks to get lost. Today the Republican party is full of the old hateful, racists southern whites who left the Democratic party after the Civil Rights Act passed. In other words….today’s Republican party is NOT the same as it was when MLK belonged to it….today, he would be a Democrat.

    do black folks REALLY think that racism comes from the right? really?…lemme explain something here…republicans (albeit not perfect) are freedom and business oriented..99% of us dont give 2 shites the color of your skin..we sure as heck dont want to pay for welfare programs when there are able bodied peoples sitting at home while we work our butts off to pay our monthly bills. ever wonder why obama wants everyone to be on welfare? blacks have been duped again into believeing they need government to save them from the big bad white man. when i lived in rural Tennessee(3 years ago), there was ZERO racism there. now i live in california and it runs rampant…TN= mostly republican conservative…CA= democratic liberals..you guys do the math.a black man who works to provide and do his part would NEVER be ridiculed for being black where i’m from. he would be uplifted and praised as an example of a good American. so please, black folks, do yourself a huge favor and ponder the things ive said as it is the way almost ALL whites think..atleast whites who work to provide and do their part.

    • reese

      Just look at the tea party and their is racism on both sides. And why do you speak of welfare as it is a black problem. If it was just about welfare than why not target the welfare recipicants instead of blacks. The majority of blacks are not on welfare and there are more whites on welfare and latinos as well. So why plaint it as a black problem? Also if you look up hate crimes statistics or discrimination California is lower than Tennessee and lot all democratic they have had republicans governers for years like Ronald Reagon and Arnold Schwarzenegger. There is racism on both sides you must of missed all the racist comments coming from the tea party some how. Obama isn’t telling anybody to be on welfare you have a choice and he supports education. If people choose to be on welfare that is their choice and we know that welfare reform went though and most states have limits where you cannot even be on welfare for more than two years. Also it is the states that decide the terms of the welfare and not the president which is why each state has different laws. Obama has no affect on the welfare.

          “‘Well, son, that be when white folks work every day so us po’ folks can get all our benefits.’
          “‘But mama, don’t the white folk get mad about that?’
          “‘They sho do, son. They sho do. And that’s called racism.’”

        You are right. I heard all the tea party nuts -didn’t copy! There are more whites on welfare – but we have both who need help – and it is the responsibility of all christians to help the poor, homeless and needy – “The Bible tells you so.” There is racism in both political parties – not particularly because of the party both because of the content of the heart and soul of the individual. I am white and born in the third world state of Alabama when known as democrats of which there were two kinds of people: Good who believed what God said he created all in his image and and all were equal and believed in “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” And the one’s who hated the republicans after the Civil War due to the Emancipation Proclamation of the slaves – which really didn’t do the job. After1965 and the Civil Rights Act, most of those old Dixiecrats switched to the republican party and carried their old hates with them, so in the long run it really is what is inside a human beings character – hate or love of your fellow man not the party. I have always been shocked at man’s inhumanity to man. And I have always been a democrat and tried to help all the downtrodden that I could.

        • Thom

          The Republicans were the minority in Congress at the time of the Civil Rights Act. A majority of them voted for it. A majority of the Democrats didn’t. The combined vote tally got it passed. The Dixiecrats remained loyal to the Dem party and got Jimmy Carter who ran as a moderate elected. It wasn’t until his failed presidency was over that SOME of the Dixiecrats fled to the Republicans. Those old hates you refer to…I’ve never seen them. Maybe they’re scatter shot, but they aren’t the norm.

          • cordeg

            See my comment above for a more thorough recitation of the REAL history of the so-called “party switch” during the modern civil rights era.

            HOWEVER, I do need to correct you on ONE thing: the majority of Democrats DID vote FOR the Civil Rights Act of 1964, just not as BIG a majority as in the Republican ranks, which backed it more strongly — as they of course would, since the Republicans had been the SOLE force behind the Civil Rights Acts of 1868, 1871, 1872, 1875, and the overwhelming supporters of other civil rights acts up to and including the Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1960. The Democrats were the “johnny-come-lately” actors in the story of civil rights. Subsequently, they decided that fighting civil rights wasn’t profitable, and the SAME subjugation of African Americans could be achieved by pandering to them and forcing them to believe their only hope was in dependency on government support. African Americans can do ANYTHING just as well as every other American — all they need is NOT to be oppressed by their new government masters. They don’t need favors any more than Asian Americans, and could have been just as successful in America if they had not been robbed of their birthright by Democrats from slavery to debt peonage, to sharecropping, to segregation and finally to being sold the crap from Democrats that only by subservience to the Democratic Party can they have any hope of being anything — THEY ARE ALREADY SOMETHING BY VIRTUE OF THEIR BIRTH. Anyone who tells them otherwise is STEALING from them.

    • Superabound

      “when i lived in rural Tennessee(3 years ago), there was ZERO racism there.” Ahaha you are a joke. And a liar. Ive spent my entire life in Tennessee and Mississippi and let me tell you, racism is everywhere. Complete strangers will drop the N-bomb in conversation with me like its no big deal, they just assume that since im white im as racist as they are. The saddest thing about racists like you is you dont even know youre racist. You think the prejudices you have are normal, you think its the “default” because you were raised and taught by other racists. I actually feel kinda bad for you.

      But anyway, if Republicans are “pro-freedom”, then why are the only laws they pass ones that take freedoms away? Theyre taking away a womans lawfully-given freedom to choose, they created the Patriot Act, Department of Homeland Security, airport scanners, government wiretaps, SOPA, PIPA, indefinite detention, waterboarding, theyre against legalization of marijuana, the list goes on and on. It seems like the only freedoms they care about are gun ownership (which i personally support as well), and the “freedom” for billionaires not to pay taxes. Republicans dont care about freedom.

      And please, show me one shred of evidence that Obama “wants everyone to be on welfare”. ONE.

      • DividedFallen

        so Obama will get rid of the patriot act,Dept. of HS, scanners, wiretaps, sopa, pipa, detention, waterboarding and leagalize weed? I’m voting to Obama then.

        • Superabound

          I doubt he’ll get rid of the Patriot Act or Dept. of Homeland Security. Theyre already entrenched and enshrined in government, and it would mean getting rid of lots of jobs. The wiretaps have lessened, although he still supports amnesty for the telecoms which i disagree with. He doesnt support SOPA or PIPA. He doesnt waterboard, and he might actually legalize weed if he can get the support. I think some Republicans might actually be starting to come around to legalization as well, i know Libertarians already do.

          Honestly, Obama has governed almost entirely like a classical Republican. Its just that the current GOP is unrecognizable to how it started out. Its not a legitimate political party anymore, because it doesnt seem to be interested in actual governance. You cant argue that you should be in charge of the government if you dont believe in government, and that everything government does is bad. Its like putting the patients in charge of the asylum.

          • serfbaja

            “he doesnt waterboard…” WAJ! Instead of waterboarding (something every special forces soldier in the USofA has had done to him) he blows them away with missiles fired from drones…and now he has deployed those drones over the USofA.
            You and most of the other posters here are blinded by racial politics. The O has taken more freedoms from Americans that any other president…including FDR.

                  An assault on any liberty is an assault on all liberties. Law-abiding American citizens have been spied on. Warrantless wiretaps. Indefinite detentions. The Patriot Act has been used to assault American freedoms, not protect them. And its been used by both Republicans AND Democrats, but lets never forget who created it and signed it into law.

                  The Patriot Act doesnt keep me safe from violence. The police, and my own vigilance does. Terrorists are a million times less dangerous to me than any random mugger, and ten million times less dangerous than a random disease. Youre more likely to be struck by lightning than you are to be killed by a terrorist. So do we need to take away everyones rights and freedoms to wage a war against lightning?

            Actually Obama has cut almost a half-million government jobs, while creating more private sector jobs in one term than Bush did in two.

          Obama only had a filibuster-proof supermajority for about 6 months, between Franken finally being seated after his elections recount, and Scott Brown taking over Kennedy’s seat after his death. And he had to use all of that time to get the ACA passed.

          So to answer your question of “why?”, the answer is because he simply didnt have the numbers in Congress to do it, due to the unprecedented number of obstructionist filibusters coming from the Republican party. They filibustered every single bill, INCLUDING their own. They basically shut down the entire legislature, and refused to do their jobs, defrauding the American taxpayer who pays their salaries. Let me ask you this, would YOU still get paid if you categorically refused to do YOUR job? Of course not. So why do you let these clowns in Congress keep their jobs and keep cashing their paychecks (which YOU pay for)? Hell, they already go on vacation every 3 or 4 weeks.

        Before Obama…27% received gov. assistance. After Obama..46% receive gov. assistance. You d the math. It’s called “redistributed wealth…to him

        • Superabound

          I think you mean “before Bush”. The recession happened while Bush was still in office, due to 8 straight years of his failed polices. As did 9/11.

          And right now under Obama, stocks are up, corporate profits and CEO pay are at record highs, why middle class wages have stagnated. So if wealth is being “redistributed”, its obviously being redistributed in ONE direction: up.

          Think about it logically: if wealth redistribution exists, then the people its being redistributed TO would be the ones with all the money, and the ones its being redistributed FROM would be the ones without any money. So tell me, who has all the money in this country?

          • http://www.facebook.com/brad.phelps.988 Brad Phelps

            The recession happened primarily from the mortage meltdown that was brought on by Democrats forcing banks to give risky loans to people with low incomes and bad credit ratings, which were later bought up and back by Freddy Mac and Fannie Mae (GOVT backed organizations). Repubs in 2005 and 2006 testified before congressional pannels warning of the future meltdowns and were blown off by dems like Mohnahan (SP?). Try researching the CSPAN videos of that on Utube. The NY times even did an article in 1999 warning that the clinton admin. was doing that policy, and that it could have disasterous results if there was an econimc downturn. So it’s all Bush’s fault that gas prices were $1.84 when Obama came in and are double that now….I know the answer always some one elses fault for bad things, and credit for Obama for good things. That is a real leader there.

            • Superabound

              Well you just proved you a) have no idea what youre talking about, and b) swallow every dose of propaganda your puppetmasters give you, hook, line & sinker.

              The meltdown was not caused by poor people. Poor people, collectively, do not even control enough wealth to have that effect. Poor people have always taken loans and bought houses, the risk is ALREADY factored in to the payment strategies the banks use. Every poor black family in America could have defaulted on their mortgage at once and it would not have crashed the economy.

              The meltdown was caused by the rich financiers and Wall Street cronies that control the wealth and economy. Deregulation allowed them to deal in EXTREMELY risky and fraudulent deals like credit default swaps for years. What happened is the initial downturn in real estate profits, caused by the growing fad of upper-middle class and rich white people becoming amateur “house flippers”, buying up a half dozen homes and paying for the next with the profits for selling the first, and when the market took a hit, suddenly they couldnt sell that first house, which means they couldnt pay for the next, or the 5 more after that. It caused a domino effect of well-off people defaulting on MULTIPLE million-dollar houses at once, not poor families defaulting on a $50,000 mortgage. And when this happened, the banks froze up, because as it turned out, they didnt actually have the capital to back up all the checks they were writing. If the banks had be operating according to regulations, and backing up their loans like they were supposed to, there never would have been a problem, just a slight speedbump in the real estate industry and thats it. But it was the fraudulent practices of the bank that caused the infections to spread into the greater economy, and the global economy.

              The fact that you are blaming everything on poor and minority families who have nothing, control nothing, and have no political power, and completely absolve the criminal banks who not only caused this mess, but begged for bailout after bailout of taxpayer money, and THEN, behind closed doors (and only revealed by Ron Paul’s bipartisan audit of the Fed) got an additional $16 TRILLION (the size of the entire US debt) in secret, zero interest loans, also paid for by the American taxpayer, just shows how effective their billion-dollar propaganda campaigns are. And how right William Casey was:

              • ulackreason

                Well you are partially correct but it is much more complex than that. The reason these speculators were bidding on derivatives and credit default swaps was because they believed that since the federal govt in the form of FNMA and FreddieMac were completely guaranteed from loss since these were govt agencies and the federal govt can always in the worst situation at least print more money. And it was a nationwide, not so color specific system of letting anyone, regardless of income have loans that on the applications showed that there would be an up coming default based on economic factors, especially if the applicant was on a interest only mortgage and could not possibly build equity or value above their cost. Then you had the housing market going upside down because houses were too easy to forget. The bad thing about supply and demand is that this theory is just like any other mathematic theory and if supply goes up too much, demand goes down. Housing market crumbled and then those that were already struggling are in houses that end up being worth half of what they paid. I think the federal government is mostly to blame even before the greedy bankers because they set policy that allowed the greedy people to participate in this and none had the foresight to understand what the full ramifications of the worst case scenario could be. Just like the govt, be it fed, state, local to ready shoot aim.

      • Al Kahuna

        The only black people who could answer intelligently about racism are close to 100 now. Since then, the only racism has been in the minds of so-called “african-americans” (among others). This ridiculous term is a joke in itself. I’m more of a hyphenated American than 99% of ANYONE you will ever meet who calls themself a ???-American, but I’m white, so I have the mindset of working for a living and earning what I have without worrying about the gub’ment taking care of me. This is the only way I can always be sure that I will always be successful without having to rely on the handouts of people like myself who actually provide the money for any and all gov’t. programs that exist. There are plenty of people of every race that feel the same as I do, unfortunately, there will always be the 47% or so (and growing) who exist solely from the hard work of others who take pride in themselves and refuse to exist simply by accepting what the gov’t. “gives” them. It’ll never change, so y’all just keep complaining and keep on living in squalor and I’ll keep working for you and paying my taxes so you you’ll have a place to live that you can piss and moan about for generations to come. Good luck with that and, by the way, make sure you never, ever make any effort to change. That way your kids and grandkids will never have any idea what it’s like to be a productive member of decent society. Wouldn’t want them to feel bad for being a worthless drain on the economy like every predecessor in their family for generations before them. Just teach ‘em to stand in line and get that Lone Star card or whatever they call it where you’re from and they’ll be so phukin ignorant that they’ll think that IS their job.

      Most black people are conservative, but it is just that the republican party overall just doesn’t seem to be inclusive and they seem to promote fear. I think that most people would vote for them too if their candidates would have plans that helped everyone in the country and not just a few. That’s just my view. I don’t consider myself a member of either party though, because I think that it’s stupid that our society supports two parties that have been bought by corporate America.

It’s also important to note that the Republican and Democratic Parties of Zora Neale Hurston’s day (to say nothing of Booker T. Washington’s), especially before the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, have very little in common with their counterparts in 2012. As has already been stated, before JFK, most blacks were members of the GOP, “The Party of Lincoln.”

      I agree with you on this there needs to be blacks in both parties. I believe because so many blacks vote democratic that democrats offer us nothing because they figure we are in the bag. And republicans offer us nothing because they think no matter what they do we will vote party lines. Both democrats and republicans need to be competing for our votes.

            Wow, the disconnect here is stunning. It wasn’t the Democrats excoriating Clinton for his sexual peccadilloes, it was the Republicans who engaged in a years-long witch hunt against a legally elected President because they were using any excuse to deny him the legitimacy of his office. The Democrats were saying that this isn’t really the business of the American people, this is his private sex life.

            The double standard you point out is predicated on the fact that the Republicans make such a big deal out of it, unlike the Democrats, so when they are caught engaging in that behavior, they are hypocrites as well as liars.

            Black people voting for a party that is inherently hostile to them because of the Republicans inclusion of so many racists is what the Democrats find puzzling, & downright kooky. It’s as if you’re all suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, like chickens brainwashed into voting for Colonel Sanders, or cows brainwashed into voting for Ray Kroc. If the worst of them had their way, you’d all be second-class citizens.

                  And one has to have some serious self loathing to go along with a political party that seeks to keep minorities beholden to them by promising free stuff and covering up the fact that the other party is the party of Emancipation and that the other party is the one that passed more legislation to ensure the civil rights of minorities. And don’t give me this crap about it’s not the same party. IT’S THE SAME PARTY. Just like it’s the same Democrat party that did more to hinder women’s sufferage both then and now by still trying to convince women (and minorities) that they can’t get along without them. I know reality bites but you can’t re-write history, Jackson. It is what it is.

                  • Stentor7

                    The fact that you use the word “Democrat”, instead of the correct usage “Democratic” in this context tells me you’re just another conservatard with nothing meaningful to contribute to the argument but talking points & logical fallacies like false dichotomy & false equivalence. Some time ago the right determined that they were going to needle the Democrats at every opportunity by using the weasel-word democrat instead of the correct conjugations, sort of like calling someone Bob when they’ve asked you to call them Robert. It’s juvenile & bullying, but very typical of their childish behavior.
                    The historical Democratic Party of the 1920s is not the same party of 2013, for one thing, most of the men who opposed women’s suffrage back then were the same stripe of Dixiecrats who opposed civil rights in the 60s, so don’t hand me that baloney, that dog won’t hunt here. Those people are in your party now, the Republican Party, home of the plutocrats & theocrats, & they left a long time ago when Barry Goldwater was your standard-bearer & offered up “States Rights” as a way to oppose segregation from being federally enforced.

                      Do Conservatives a favor and post your previous comments everywhere so everyone can see what little information your owner sends you out with. Making false statements and spinning everything in the universe is the democrat way, I get that. But it’s not Democratic. Nothing dems have done in the last 100 years has been altogether too Democratic, with the exception of some things JFK did, but your people took good care of him, ay? Your actions and that of democrats everywhere justify and validate our corrrect useage of the word democrat. Because as you have stated in so many ways and in so many words, there is a great disparity between being a democrat and being Democratic. So your banshee-like raving about it is only proof I am “Right” in every way and we have struck the desired nerve. It puts you face to face with your hypocrisy and the evil nature of your twisted agenda. Suggesting that there are all these cross-overs from the once wicked, but now angelic democrat party to the always and forever evil Republican party is…well I don’t know…Should I laugh at you or feel sorry for you. I almost feel guilty continuing to joust with you because it’s kind of like picking on the mentally handicapped kid at school, and contrary to the false information under which you are enslaved, I and most Republican Conservatives are not bullies. I can sort of understand though, how being roughed up early and often can make you feel like you are being bullied. Poor guy. Some day you’ll start operating from the side of reason and truth and you won’t get trashed so much, as you have gotten trashed today….by me.

                      You just type sentences with no real understanding of what they mean, it must just be stream-of-consciousness talking points up there in that jughead of yours. Do you even know what specious means? I think not, because you seem to project all of the qualities that the Republican Party & Tea Party are currently exhibiting upon the Democrats, but it won’t wash because I know the truth, you’re out of ideas, out of arguments, & out of rhetoric. Just because you say you are right, in no way proves that you are, it’s merely your opinion, & nothing you say will make it so. If I saw you in person, I know you wouldn’t be quite the badass you pretend to be, they never are, but I do know that if I ever did meet you in the real world, I’d probably push you into a mud puddle for being such an idiot, & a pompous one at that. You’re an expert at wanting the last word, but you know you can’t get it because you are not only not right, you are also incorrect, & it burns you up something fierce. So go join the rest of your brethren in the dustbin of history, because you & your kind will be extinct soon enough, the Republicans have lost 5 of the last 6 popular votes in presidential elections, pretty soon it will be the off-year elections as well, then slowly the Republican party will sink into a bubbling pile, just like the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz.

            • Big D,

              First off let me say if a Republican cheats on his wife he should be run out of town. But, Lets not forget it is not the fact that Bill Clinton cheated on his wife. The fact is he lied on camera(perjury) to the american people and he did the act while at work. That makes it my bussiness. ( If you get caught on your job having sex with a co-worker. Do you keep your job? There are still a number of americans in this country that think that character matters. By the way what did his wedding vows say. If you can’t keep your word to your wife, The woman you love. Why do I think that you are going to keep your word on anything else you say.,

              • SPOO Knee G

                right on Big D! it really is as SIMPLE as that…case closed babies. Right On…Right On…Right On now. If you can’t keep your word to the women you love…you ain’t gonna keep nothing! You go Big D.

              • http://twitter.com/msles59130 msles59130

                Lying on camera is not perjury, brain trust. That’s just lying. Lying under oath is perjury. And yes, many people keep their jobs after being caught having sex at work. Depends on the company and the professional level. If you are a lawyer, doctor, professor, etc. then no, you probably aren’t going to get fired if you are doing an otherwise exemplary job. If you work at Walmart, then yeah, you are probably a goner.

                Clinton was a good president. That is why most people thought even asking the question was a waste of time. If he had sucked or had been shown to be defrauding or misleading the country in some way, he would never have survived that ridiculous impeachment.

                • http://www.facebook.com/people/Keith-Davidson/100001017183306 Keith Davidson

                  Lying to a Grand Jury IS perjury, which is what Clinton did. Remember the finger in their face, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Yeah, perjury. Not fit for service t the American people. Get over it and quit defending someone who couldn’t keep his vows to his wife and obviously did not have what it takes to keep his word to the American people.

              • Stentor7

                Well then you’d better get busy because Newt Gingrich is still in town, & last time I checked he cheated on two wives, not one.

            • Jade

              Stentor7…it’s people like you, who make me sigh with relief that sanity still exists in this world! Superbly put! I agree wholeheartedly.

              I am an Independent, with strong democratic leanings. I am not for or against any party because of race, religion [or lack of religion], or with the hopes of joining in with those whose stances might allow me the indulgence of some personal vice. I go for those who comparably have the most sense, wisdom, balance, and the best nose for true justice and equality.

              We can either chose an imbalanced, unjust, and unsustainable existence – or we can choose a balanced, just, and sustainable existence. I chose the latter…and am unequivocally puzzled by those who do not. Not because they don’t agree with me, or I don’t get that people are gonna have different views. But because those who would choose the former – are choosing, ultimately, to sabotage their own happiness, and destroy their own lives. Apparently, they don’t realize that – or don’t allow themselves to think that far ahead. I just don’t get it.

              We are all connected. Even in a completely secular understanding. Everything we do, affects everything and everyone. Its pretty simple; follow that thought to the end, and you comprehend the necessity of equality, justice, and sustainability. Yes, people have a right to and are inevitably going to, see things in their own way; from their own experience and interpretations of their experience. But there is still a such thing as things which are independently and objectively, true. Things that anyone, with honest and thorough thought – would come to see and heed, if they cared at all. Common threads that ring true for us all. This is one of them…and why I don’t understand those who are stubborn in their ignorance and immaturity, to the contrary.

              Please tell me you’re not really that stupid. With your own words you hang yourself. All this that you say, does it not point to you suffering from Stockholm Syndrome as well? You could not be more bass-ackwards on the subject of who makes a big deal out of the issues. A good recent example, although there are many over the last 20 years and longer, is Republican Senator Marco Rubio takes a drink of water during a response to the SOTU address and is mentioned on CNN 155 times within a 24 hour span and that number is still rising several days later. On the other hand Democrat Senator Bob Menendez has been accused by is alledged victims (not Republicans, mind you, his VICTIMS) of engaging in sexual intercourse with minors in the Dominican Republic and CNN made mention of it 6 times in a month. Let’s review: A republican takes a drink of water and it’s a problem. So much of a problem that it’s worthy of mentioning it 155 times in 24 hours; a Democrat is brought up on charges of sexing it up with a kid, and it’s not a problem, in fact let’s make mention of it only 6 times in a month and then only to say falsehoods like the Republicans and Fox News are politicizing another issue again. WTF!!! How do you politicize corrupt politicians who are dipping their wick in children????!!!!!. Whether Menendez is guilty or not, isn’t it more news worthy than a person taking a drink of water??? And with CNN getting busted taking orders from Obama’s White House staff to ensure that certain news stories are only presented in a way that reflects poorly on Republicans and only reflects positively on the President and the Democrat party, and some stories are not to be aired at all, Come on! NBC doctoring the 911 call from George Zimmerman, MSNBC doctoring a video clip from a Romney/Ryan rally, CNBC needlessly slandering Gerald Celente, the list goes on and on. FACT: The leftist media, which is almost the entire mainstream media in the North American continent, is corrupt and in the tank for Democrats and especially Obama, then liberals in this country cry foul because Conservatives have one news channel, Fox News, which they can turn to and wich delivers news from all viewpoints, fair, balanced and unafraid. No, sir. I KNOW I’m right by being on the right. They call it the RIGHT for a reason. Have a nice day.

              • Stentor7

                Your argument is specious as the definition of right is ambiguous in that being correct in no way implies that you are on a specific side, so it sounds like you were just making a weak joke, but if you were serious, then you have little understanding of the word. I see your sentences strung together, but they mean very little in the context of your argument, so it’s mostly meaningless blather. You can call someone stupid as many times as you wish, but it in no way imparts any extra veracity of logic to your arguments.

                Alice, no one in the United States is saying that a woman should not have control over her body. Do I like abortion? No not really but I am realistic enough and compassionate enough to know that there are times when abortion is the only answer. Now do I believe that there should be abortion no matter what? Well, what is wrong with that woman using birth control, which is widely available. I know people who had 3 or more abortions because they can’t be bothered to use birth control. I was with someone at an abortion clinic ( as a supportive friend) and one lady there, the staff knew by name because she had been the so many abortions. Well that is just wrong.

                No, troglodyte regressives like you are what is wrong with the world, and I’ll tell you why. The party you call the party of hate, bigotry and lies is the party that emnacipated the slaves, remember a guy named Lincoln? Yeah, Republican. Bush appointed more minorities to key positions in government than ANY President in history. ANY, including your precious Demon-crats, a party whose voting history proves they did more to fight against the rights of minorities and women’s sufferage than the Repubicans ever thought about doing. You are like a little bird in a nest with your head thrown back and your mouth wide open and what ever the leftist propaganda machine shoves down your throat, you just swallow it and beg for more. As far as WMD’s Bush followed the will of the people and followed international law by seeking multilateral assistance and while the Islamic controlled UN was stalling their response for over a month, Saddam was able to get his WMD’s out of the country. If you think Saddam did not have WMD’s why don’t you tell that to 8,000 dead Kurds who he gassed in the streets and in their homes in 1988. Have you seen the pictures of the dead babies laying in the roads? Thought not. Now, gays have assaulted the religious rite of marriage and have repeatedly sought to dismantle the family unit and consequently the basic fabric of society. I do not hate gays, lesbians, bisexuals or transgenders. You can chew on that or choke on it, I don’t care which because you are made of the right ingredients to look inside me and assign moral or spiritual conditions to my heart. You’re not authorized to do that. But the truth is, the GLBT lifestyles are destructive. Both to themselves and to others. On the subject of abortiion, if women want “control of their own bodies” as you put it, they should not give control of their bodies over to a man who will impregnate them and run. They should consider keeping their legs closed if they do not want to get pregnant. That is the best way to prevent having to murder your own offspring out of convenience. And in fairness to these women, a man should keep it in his pants, because he is just as complicit and just as culpable in the whole affair as she is. While you abortion activist are so busy fighting for your so-called right to kill your babies, you’re also out there screaming in protest to the poor treatment of animals. Hypocrisy of the most evil order. Have you ever watched a little baby human writhing in pain on a table after having it’s arms and legs ripped off? Or watched it squirming and struggling for breath after having it’s lungs burned with saline wash? These are human beings, they’re not a Volvo station wagon or a old pair of shoes. They’re not a useless lump of flesh. Up to the moment they were murdered they could smile and dream and play with their toes…..they were human….and they were killed in what SHOULD have been the safest place on Earth…their mother’s womb. God have mercy on your wretched soul. And I mean that…may God have mercy on all you who support this horrible act of barbarism. Don’t you ever call a conservative Republican any names until you have condemned this act which even animals do not commit. Done with you.

                  You’re so full of crap your eyes must be turning a deep shade of brown. The historical party of the Republicans, is not the party it is now, mostly because of the defection of the Dixiecrats into your modern Republican party during the elections of 1964 & Goldwater’s welcoming of such bigots under the guise of “States Rights” so don’t hand me that tired old crap about how your party emancipated the slaves. That wasn’t you or any of your ancestors, it was my ancestors because I came from a state that was squarely in the midst of the abolitionist struggle. Your arguments would be laughable if they weren’t so genuinely deluded. You’re lurking around a deserted webpage making comments to people who will never answer your snarky tripe, thus ensuring you have the last word.

          That’s because white liberals get very offended when blacks think for themselves. Blacks should be seen and not heard. They are good for two things: photo ops standing next to the white liberal and voting for who they are told to. THe rest of the time they should shut up. The Chris Matthews of America would love to have Obama as a neighbor as long as he didn’t bring in any others. As Biden would say — he’s clean cut, articulate, non-threatening, and good looking. I guess Biden sees his boss as “one of the good ones”.

          • Stentor7

            The very fact that you’re projecting racism onto two people you know absolutely nothing about suggests to me that you have latent racist tendencies, but are unable to deal with them consciously, so you sublimate your anger into seeing it in white Democrats. See my above comment about associating with a group of people who would make blacks & other minorities second-class citizens. So as a word of advice, maybe we’ll take you much much more seriously when you start to chase the racists out of your own party first.

            • Mike m

              I saw your above comment. It was pure garbage. I know enough about Biden based on his words. Would you defend any public figure who made racist remarks because you don’t know him/her personally? It sure sounds that way. Judging Chris MAtthews as a person is easy. He’s on tv five nights a week revealing to a very small audience the kind of person he is. Last week he said he was glad Hurricane Sandy happened because it might have helped Obama get reelected. The man is pure garbage , but I’m sure you’ll defend him. He’s been a foul disgusting human being for many years and there are many of the far left that are not much different. He equates any criticism of Obama as racist. Calling him lazy is racist. That tells me that Matthews sees blacks as lazy people. Only a racist like Matthews would judge an entire group of people like that.

              • Stentor7

                I have a lot of problems with Chris Matthews that have nothing to do with any racist comments, but I fail to see how that comment in particular can be considered racist. Instead of me defending him, why don’t you defend your reasons for calling him racist in the first place instead of just name-calling? It would be interesting to hear exactly why, from a logical point of view, that you think his comment was racist. I don’t think he was calling Obama lazy, so I’d like you to point out exactly where & when that happened, & why you can generalize that to the sweeping conclusion that is most certainly false on its face because it’s an obvious fallacy of logic. Your conclusion begs the question, that is to say you’re using circular logic to answer your own question, also a fallacy of logic.

        Cain dropped out because odumbofurer was digging up dirt on him, he can’t dig up dirt on Mitt Romney because Romney is a good man I don’t think Romney ever had a bad thought in his life.

        • Superabound

          What is “odumbofurer”, that is not a word im familiar with.

          But Cain dropped out because hes an attempted rapist and a philanderer.

          Mitt Romney has a criminal rap sheet a mile long. Money in Switzerland, the Cayman Islands, China. Investments in IRAN. Impersonating an officer and falsely pulling over innocent motorists (a felony, and something a serial killer in my city did recently). Tax fraud. Animal cruelty. Assault on his classmates. Holding campaign fundraisers on foreign soil, another felony, which disqualifies him from holding or even seeking office. Trying to coerce Mormon women to give up their babies or face excommunication. He committed perjury when testifying in court during the Staple’s CEO’s divorce proceedings. Committed felony perjury to the SEC when testifying about the length of his employment at Bain. Arrested for disorderly conduct. Dodging the draft by hanging out sipping lattes in Parisian cafes. Reckless driving that resulted in a person’s death.

          Id be surprised if Romney has ever gone even ONE YEAR without committing some sort of serious felony. We already know he cant go a single day without telling a pack of lies.

          Oh, and that car wreck he was in? He was seriously injured, and pronounced dead in the hospital. Then came back to life. Exactly like the Bible fortells the Antichrist will do in Revelations. It also says he gets his wealth and power from “the Dragon”, and as everyone knows, the Dragon is the symbol of China, where Mitt gets his wealth and power. If Romney ascends to the Presidency it could usher in 1000 years of darkness, and the supremacy of his personal, non-Christian religion.

Which is why you people ALWAYS start talking about Kool Aid, a children’s drink. So go away and fantasize about your favorite dyed sugar water and let the ADULTS have a real political conversation.

            • Superabound

              Youre an idiot who believes propaganda without even a second of critical thinking. Every single entity involved has come out and proven that Romney ad about Chinese cars is a flat out lie. The only cars they manufacture in China are the ones sold in China. The ones manufactured here are sold here. Are you really that economically stupid? Do you not understand how completely retarded it would be business-wise for them to manufacture cars here in America for a high price, and then sell them in China for a low price? No, they make Chinese cars for Chinese people IN China. They make American cars for Americans IN America. Think for two seconds.

                So if I drive a Toyota does that mean I live in Japan? Just wondering…………

                • Superabound

                  Well first of all Toyota isnt an American car company and was not given any bailout money. In fact if the American companies HADNT been bailed out, the only cars youd be able to buy right now are Toyotas and Hondas. The American auto industry would be dead.

                  But anyway, you just proved my point. That Toyota you drive (like a traitor) wasnt manufactured in Japan. If was manufactured in America. Unless youre talking about high priced European sports cars and other specialties, cars are typically not imported across the ocean for regular customers. Its not financially viable. They are made inside the country where they are sold, to avoid shipping costs and import tariffs. Learn how business works please.

                  • Jeff

                    You are a dumbass. The 2001 Chevy Suburban I drive was manufactured in Mexico. Do some real research instead of believing everything Daddy Barack tells you.

                You are not correct once again the European owners of Diamler Chrysler said that all new manufacturing plants will be based in china for cost effectiveness, so in fact Obama is creating jobs just not in the United States

                • Superabound

                  Just because Romney’s favorite hobby was exporting jobs to China, doesnt mean thats what Obama is doing. Besides the fact that its YOU people who say the President shouldnt and doesnt have any control over private business, and that government cant create jobs, every single bit of the auto bailout money has gone to American workers and American factories to create American jobs and American cars. That Romney ad has been proven wrong by everyone. Even Romney admitted it was a lie by pulling it.

                  I know you people desperately want America to fail, so you just LOVE any BS story you can find about America losing jobs, and about Americans not being able to succeed, but let me remind you that you people falling for your own propaganda is EXACTLY why you lost this election in a landslide.

She’s like a Stepford WIFE…. and she said on NatIonal TV that milatiry service was for “other” husbands and sons/daughters… she felt her families missions to France’ cafe’ and wine country chatu’ was honorable military service for her people. Born with a silver spoon in her mouth and her blatant elites attitude…. neither she or Mitt the Twit had a clue as to what America or her middle classes need. Did you ‘really’ think “YOU People” was a term of endearment????? Wake the Fk up Lady….

              And GM hasnt opened any plants in China with our tax money, thats one of the obvious, blatant lies Romney told (and was immediately proven wrong about) that cost him the election. The election is over btw, you dont have to keep pretending all the lies he told were true. He lost.

          Mitt Romney appears to have profited from a marketing company that was contracted by the state of Massachusetts after receiving $5 million in financial backing from Bain Capital, Mr Romney’s investment firm.

          Paul Ryan’s brother, who is a former Bain consultant, was at the time of the investment a senior executive at the marketing company, Imagitas, which was co-founded by another former Bain executive.

          Both Mr. Romney and Tobin Ryan, who omits his work at Imagitas from his corporate biography, also apparently stood to benefit from the $230 million sale of the company in 2005, while Mr Romney remained in office.

          Massachusetts law requires that all state employees divest themselves of financial interests in private sector contracts with state agencies. At the time, failure to do so could have resulted in a $2,000 (£1,273) fine or a 2.5-year prison sentence. The potential punishments are now stronger.

          Asked repeatedly by The Daily Telegraph throughout this week whether Mr Romney had indeed profited from the company, had been aware of the potential conflict of interest, or had taken any action to avoid one, his campaign and Bain Capital declined to comment.

          “Romney is a good man”? Yeah, right. Besides his serial lying, while piloting Bain (during 1990-1994 and beyond) Bain/Romney advised Philip Morris Tobacco and British American Tobacco very successfully– Marlboro cigarettes were dropped to $1.60/pack, thereby making them affordable for teens, and thanks to Bain, BAT has 24% of the cigarette market in Russia. Romney shares the blame for thousands of tobacco-related deaths in Russia, and who knows how many will be the count for the US. He is an insult to our church.

          I don’t think romney EVER had a thought in his LIFE. I am thankful to the heavens that he lost by a landslide. Very dangerous man with elites views. Did you know that he proffess’ to be a Pro-Lifer and would revoke all abortions … rape, insest and possible death of the mother (he’d reverse Roe vs Wade). But he has no quama about racking in mega millions from the very act he so dispises… Abortion. Check out Streicycle. It’s a multi billion dollar company, who Mittens/Bains Capital purchared 75 million dollars in shares from. They are the sole contractor for the bio-hazardous removal for fetus and fetal remaims for the 700+ abortion clinic’ in the USA. That’s somewhere’s around 400,000 LESS little pitter patter of baby feet a year. I believe that women shoul.d have the right to choose what happens with their own bodies. And it’s absolutely insane to expect a woman to have and RAISE a child of rape. Or to expect the woman to have ‘contact’ with the rapist while the child is growing up. Talk about cruel and unusally punishment. That a good way to NOT have a healthy and stalble relationship with the mother/child or the child and rapist father. AND with his dismantling the Planned Parenthood…. he’d be talking one of the most important means for the mother to have well baby clinic’ and help raising this child…. Guess his main focus is to force the having of the babies, but then makiing sure there’s no safety net for either of them.

          My biggest problem with him is he’s a blatant liar about most of what he’d said. He guts business’ and steals their pention plans then guts the liquid assets and finally out sources the jobs from the belly up company to China.
          He is a pestulance on our nation, tptally UNAMERICAN and completely unworthy of being our President,,, now or forever. He maybe welthy (mostly from ill gotten gains and cheating the US out of funds). You simply can not make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear…. much as you’d like to. And to add insult to injury…. His boys (all 5) are just like him and little parrots to do their father’s bidding.,

          Those sex offense charges had been around for years before the “Left” even knew who Herman Cain was. He was just some pizza guy. His only nemesis back then was Papa John, or maybe the Noid. So maybe you should go blame them.

    • Romping Willy Billy

      I didn’t realize Barack Obama was a “Negro” until after he won the first election. Then the press toned him up to be as black a shade of color as they could get away with. It was really quite shocking as I thought I had voted for an American. Then came the birth certificate controversy, his support for gay marriage, and the report that he was attempting to distance himself as far apart from Michelle as possible. And can you blame him? What is it that they say about black women of color? They behave the way a typical wife will after the honeymoon even she has been asked to go out on the first date and even before she has been presented with a proposal to get married.

    • JasonX

      Actually most blacks appear to be racists because they voted for Obama based upon skin color. That is the truth because it sure cannot be because of Obamas stellar job creation in the black community. Liberals/Dems are the ones who keep blacks down and enslaved in the welfare system by promising more free stuff to their districts. If only most would wake up and see that they are being used. I don’t think that will ever happen however.

      that’s nonsense… of course you’re turning your back on black people… the republican parties platform is anti poor… anti gay… anti people in general… these blacks are supporting the republican party because they’ve come into some money and they feel that republicans will enable to hold on to more of it… it’s a selfish stance pure and simple…

  • Tesa

    Question, if Barack was a Republican would Black people still vote for him? What is most important? His party affiliation? His race or his policies? Which criteria determines if he gets the vote?

    • b

      His party affiliation for sure. As I’ve stated above, some conservatives are openly hostile to blacks and latinos, and these people just can’t bring themselves to do it.

      I know blacks who are conservative on taxation, abortion, same sex marriage, and others, but will vote democrat because of the GOP’s bigoted element.

Don’t think that it’s a bigoted remark when there have been a lot of questions raised about what his brother stated. Going back to Kenya means to me, that if t’s true then he CANNOT be President and if it true then America has had the biggest cruelest trick ever played on it’s population.

              Rush Limbaugh started his shows for a while after the election with a musical number “Barack the Magic Negro,” how could that be interpreted as bigoted? Or the County GOP Chair in California who sent out a mass e-mail showing Obama as a chimp, as a beggar and calling him the food stamp President surrounded by water mellons and fried chicken and malt beer, right after taking office. Or those signs showing Obama with the bone in his nose in a grass skirt, that’s just real, right? Or Mitt saying in Michigan that “no one asks me for my birth certificate,” and the crowd cheered. Remember any other President where the right asked for a birth certificate? Because he’s different maybe?
              This is also all about assumptions, and that ability to simply show no respect for him or the office. So a Congressman yelling “you lie” in a State of the Union Address, for the first time in history, is cheered by the right, even though it was the congressman who was lying. If someone one on the left had yelled that out when Bush was giving his SotUA (and actually lying), he would have been run out of DC by Fox, Rush… The outrage is very specific and always benefits the right wing media and political class, that’s called propaganda and you are part.

              • Timo

                Were you taking a nap for 8 years or totally out the country?????Pres. Bush was escoriated with every expletive under the sun…why even his name was used as a slam in reference to feminine genatalia, and you go sideways because somebody in congress had the audacity to address the huge elelphant in the room which was that Obama WAS lying!!!! And right this moment, all his folks in the media are scrambling to figure out how to “fix” Bengazi, which makes Watergate look like a Kindergarten prank by comparison.
                Fact: any U.S. citizen can be required to show their birth certificate for many reasons; you can not get a driver’s license in the state of California without showing one. You can not get a U.S. Passport without showing one. To any 3rd grader it would be obvious that the attack at Bengazi was related to 9/11, not some silly video that came out months before! But maybe my bar is too high. Character, authenticity, humility, and honesty DO matter, however in 4 years I have seen none of these qualities from Pres. Obama. Ask yourself one more question; Hugo Chavez-(Venezuela’s dictator in chief, in case you forgot)- Putin from Russia, and Castro from Cuba are very enthusiastically supportive of Obama and would vote for him if they had the chance! That should really give you warm fuzzies right???

                • Lena

                  Except no president was required repeatedly to prove where he was born. I don’t recall an effigy of Bush hanging from a noose or being burned.
                  Women in W. Virginia spoke openly to the media and said there is no way I’m voting for a N___er. I guess if you pretend not to notice after a while you don’t notice, but that doesn’t mean its not happening. John McCain even corrected a women that was being disrepectful towards Obama at one of his campaign stops. As long you deny there is a problem, the problem will always be there. Dare I name the problem?

              • Sandiegosherlock

We are still democrats. Another black, Cynthia McKinney, was on the ballot in ’08. We could’ve voted for her but we didn’t.

But atlas I find nothing but more of the same ill-informed faux news/Limbaugh trash.

As soon as Obamacare comes into full effect the medical care you receive for free now will cost you hundreds of dollars. If you don’t pay for insurance you will be fined and if you don’t pay your fine you will go to jail, just like if you don’t pay for a traffit ticket, only you will go to prison for not paying for this one.

              “Not beneficial” equals racism? And how do you figure it’s not beneficial to grow the economy? By your theory anyone who levies taxes is racist since some class can always claim they should pay less.

              It’s not about race until you make it that way.

            • vivianclare

              This is an insane claim. Republicans are NOT more taxing the poor more than the rich – this is just crazy. And your reducing of the argument to “caring” – what the hell is that? I don’t care how much politicians “care” about me, I want them to pursue policies which result in a growing economy, which is the only kind of an economy which can provide increased opportunities for everyone. Under this President, we have the highest African-American unemployment in decades. Democrats, in their continuing love affair with the abortion industry, have helped annihilate generations of African-Americans who never even had a chance to live. Many Republicans welcome a flat tax which taxes all at the same rate. This way, politicians cannot play class warfare. Democrats exist PURELY on class warfare, playing off different people against each other in attempt to form entire voting blocs that will continue to support them no matter what. If you don’t have a growing economy, you give more power to entrenched interest groups, which favors the biggest corporations, the biggest unions, the folks who have had money and privilege for years. You encourage cronyism at every single level. All of these result in fewer opportunities for those at the lower levels of society, by driving small businesses out of business, and restricting employment to people who “know” someone.

              • http://profile.yahoo.com/2XLSCH4OGANFQAD6GEVFH4MC5Y krystal

                What trash. Under Eisenhower the top marginal tax rate was 90% and corporations paid 33% of all taxes, and the economy grew better than the entire Reagan administration, we built the interstate highway system, cut the defense budget by 33% and we paid off the national debt from WWII and the depression. Under Reagan we dropped taxes on the top in half, increased them on the middle class and poor, cut social programs, doubled the defense budget (mostly enriching contractors), tripled the national debt, deregulated Savings and Loans (causing their collapse in 1989), cut infrastructure funding, and started the grand shift of income from the middle class to the top 1%. Clinton raised taxes on the top 1%, cut taxes for small business and working poor and set up the pay-for-play system to limit future deficits in his first budget, with no GOP votes in either House of Congress. The GOP said Clinton’s budget would destroy the economy, but we had the longest, strongest economic growth since Eisenhower, we ended with surpluses, so the GOP tried to claim credit. with the GOP controlling the White House and congress in 2001 we immediately went back into deficits because of tax cuts, unnecessary wars, big pharma payoffs, deregulated banks destroying the economy… So once Obama takes office in the 14th month of a 20 month recession, the deepest and longest since the 1930s, he was responsible for anything bad in the economy. Two days before Obama’s inauguration the Bush administration released their 2009 budget deficit projection, $1.3 trillion. How can Obama be blamed for a $1.3 trillion budget when the estimate came before he was President?

          You’re disregarding the fact that both parties have factions that change over time. How could your party not change when it was joined en masse by all the racist Democrats who switched parties during the Civil Rights era and the dog whistle Southern Strategies of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan? Let’s be clear – certainly not all conservatives or Republicans are racist, but most of today’s anti-black racists use the politics of conservatism to advance their interests and beliefs, and in this era they consider the Republican party their home. This is making it increasingly difficult for Black Americans to identify as Republican. It has nothing to do with Black people’s attitude changing.

        It’s the DEMOCRATIC party today that would be completly UNRECOGNIZABLE TO JFK now…if you’re trying to paint the Republicans as a part of RACISTS now, you are TOTALLY misinformed! Condi Rice & Gen.Colin Powell had ground-breaking positions of authority in the Geo.W.Bush admin….

        • eyeEEsha

          I wasn’t talking about Democrats, I was talking about Republicans and I never said anything about Republicans being racist. I’m definitely not misinformed about the role that Republicans have played in the Civil Rights Movement, during Reconstruction or the Civil War. I simply said that the party is different than what it was 50 or 60 years ago.

            It proves that black people cannot vote on issues because they cannot see past their color. This is true from your local alderman to the president of the United states.

      • Qarlo

        AMEN. What people fail to realize is that Republican and Democratic policies have changed drastically since the beginning of the 20th century. Republicans used to be the liberal, big-government party and Democrats the conservative, small-government party. So to say Republicans have always been a “pro-black” party just because Lincoln was Republican is not only erroneous, but obviously a stretch because as we all know, the modern-day bigots of America vote left.

    • reese

      You beat me to it. Blacks starting supporting democrats with the civil rights movement.

      • Curly Bill

        More Republicans than democrats supported the Civil Rights Movement. Over 80% of Republican voted for the Civil Rights Act, only about 62% of Democrats did so.

        • Superabound

          The vote was divided between North and South, not Democrat and Republican. The North voted a majority for it, the South voted a majority against it. But more Northern Democrats voted for it than Northern Republicans, and more Southern Democrats voted for it than Southern Republicans. The votes are a matter of record, look it up.

          • http://twitter.com/Sailing_J Sailing J

            So what. It’s still a fact. More Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act than Democrats.

        • Qarlo

          Where’s the source to this OUTRAGEOUS allegation?? FYI, during the Civil Rights Movement it was the Republican southerners that ATTEMPTED TO STOP BLACK PEOPLE FROM VOTING! HELLO! Earth to Billy Bob! Are you serious?! You people need to wake up and smell the history books.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Greg-Eatroff/1013946885 Greg Eatroff

          The Republicans then nominated one of the GOP senators who voted against the Civil Rights Act for President, and Dixiecrats like Strom Thurmond who’d opposed the bill switched to the GOP. Who do you think you’re trying to fool here?

    • Curly Bill

      Remember, JFK advocated a “go slow” approach on integration (and did not want Sammy Davis Jr.. at this inauguration because his wife was white). RFK (then Attorney General) was the one who ordered MLK’s hotel rooms to be bugged and his phones wiretapped.

    Didn’t you guys do this story a just few weeks ago? And why do folks call Dwayne Johnson Black instead off mixed or (samoan) Polynesian? He seems much more comfortable with that identity and I can’t recall anything he’s done in which he plays an identifiable black man. Somehow he’s always looks racially ambiguous (scorpion king) and has nonblack siblings/interests. And no shade intended because I’ve been watching him since his early wrestling days (when he had the stereotypical aggressive black man angle), but I’m curious….

    There is nothing wrong with being a republican. i will say this though – they need to come out ad denounce the crazy and racist part of their group. Not all Republicans are like that, but it’s enough of them to get their entire party shed in a bad light. Some Independent will vote democrat just to not be associated with their nutjobs.

    • victoria

      I agree. The platform is more my style. The racism mucks it up.

    • L R

      And there are just as many crazy nutjobs on the democrats side too! Extremists on both sides, but i’ll pick a conservative over a liberal anyday, anyway, anywhere!

      • Superabound

        The “both sides” argument has been proven false over and over. The GOP is currently an extremist party, whereas the Democratic party is moderate. In every country where there are terrorist attacks, they are perpetrated by the extreme right-wing religious party. America is no exception.

        Even neuroscientists have proven that conservative ideology is born out of fear, violence, racism, xenophobia, and lower IQs. Im sorry, but for someone like you, from a party that doesnt believe in everyone being equal, you need to accept that the parties arent equal either. Republicans are far more prone to being violent nutjobs and having extremist political ideologies. Im sorry if that hurts your feelings, but its empirical fact.

      Mike, there are racist idiots who support both parties, but, IMHO, the big difference is that the Democrats have been successful selling the “Republicans = racist” message. For example, I challenge anyone who believes having to show an ID to vote is racist to explain why Kroger isn’t racist for making me show them an ID when I buy a six pack.

      • http://www.facebook.com/sunny.knight.37 Sunny Knight

        i am full on white and i happily show my ID to prove i am who i say to be able to vote.
        I do not feel it is racist at all to ask for ID and Kroger folk must think you look “old” enough to buy the brew. I haven’t been carded in years there but i always am at Walmart… different policies.
        Oh and my hubby is Mexican and has no problem showing his ID either and feels everyone should have to.

      • Superabound

        Buying a six pack of beer isnt a Constitutionally-guaranteed right, and the Budweiser corporation isnt fighting to make it harder for people to buy Coors.

      • Superabound

        Plus people already have to show ID, its called a voter registration card. The GOP is trying to make it so people have show additional ID, IDs that cost money that you have to pay the government, and they pick and choose WHICH IDs theyll accept based on political affiliation. Hunting licenses are allowed (more likely to be a Republican) even though theyre insecure and dont even have a photo, whereas student IDs are not, even though they are VERY secure and have photos.

        Republican House Leader Mike Turzai flat out ADMITTED that the purpose of all these voter ID laws was to “give Romney the election”. You cant even argue about it, they admitted it.

    • Damage6

      So when is the DNC going to denounce the racist, crazy, self avowed communists, those openly calling for violence etc etc etc in their own camp? There are bigoted and intolerant fringe on both sides. The problem is anyone on the right who expresses their views based solely on policy issues is decried as racist and any overt expressions from the right to reign in their–much smaller–fringe elements will be greeted by a chorus of “See! See! I told you they’re nothing but a bunch of racists,” by every leftist pundit and commentator. The majority left sympathizing media has been caught again and again slandering and outright lying to perpetuate their false narrative so many times there’s no way people on the right will be willing to give them more fodder to spin into their false narrative.

    I’m black and I’m an Independent, I vote republican and democrat, but I’m voting for Obama, not because he’s black like me and you and he’s from Chicago like me, I’m voting for him because Mutt Bombney comes off as a rich d-bag (my opinion).

      So your not voting for any real reason then?, no outlook to the future of your country? no policies that sway you one way or the other? it’s just a popularity contest to you?
      How Pathetic, no wonder the USA has become a bureaucratic tyranny.
      You don’t even know for sure who Obama is and you’ll vote for him?
      The world is galloping towards WW3 because of him and you’ll vote for him?
      Racism is promoted from the white house and you’ll vote for him?
      I’m Canadian and think you are all nuts, your media is worse than Xinhua news, if you re-elect this nitwit Marxist your country will never recover in your lifetime.
      If Canada measured unemployment they way the USA does we’d have full employment if the USA measured it as Canada does your unemployment would be 18%, wake up, Obama knows nothing of economics, expecting him to get you out of this is like expecting the dentist to fix the space station.
      Your probably one who thinks the stock market rise is because of something other than the fact the dollar’s value declined and now purchases less stock for the same amount of dollars giving the impression of a value increase in stock, it’s bait and switch, it’s robbing all of America to benefit the very very rich(Soros, Buffett) who can afford to short sell currency.
      Stupid Americans, your enemies will come knocking and your allies won’t be there for the big one because this Marxist has shown he can’t be trusted.
      Outside America with it’s insulated media he is a laughing stock, a world joke, as is America under him, no one respects this administration, they are the children in the room of statesmen, Putin is more respected than Obama and his unelected Czars.
      Idiots.

      • Soul Sister at Heart

        You are right Durwood. I have dear friends from abroad- St. Vincent and Switzerland. None of them are even remotely alike. However, they all agree that president Obama is a weak leader and actually asked me, “What’s wrong with Americans that would elect him?” They are hoping we elect a different president this November. They are sad for our country. I really hope that people will not base their vote on such silliness as “Romney is a rich d-bag”. That kind of thinking is not only comes across as prejudiced against success, but will be our country’s undoing. Obama is rich too and quite frankly, if our country is so foolish as to re-elect Obama, then I guess he really IS the president we deserve! A pop culture president for an pop culture America. I don’t know anyone Black, White or Hispanic that is doing better than they were 4 years ago or even 1 year ago. We desperately need someone who understands economics.

        • reese

          They are in minority because we saw how Obama was respected and how low they thought of Bush. But it doesn’t matter because they can’t vote and wasn’t living here during Bush years so they should concentrate on their own countries and Americans will handle this. We all have one vote and I might not agree with your reason for voting, but I don’t have to explain or justify my opinion to you and neither does anytbody else. I wonder if you voted both times for Bush who got our county in this mess it was striving before he got in there, but he talks tough so he must be a good president?

            “who got our county in this mess it was striving before he got in there”

            I assume you mean “thriving”? How was the country thriving? He took over in 2000 and dealt with an economic crisis spurned on by the dot com bubble burst. How do you not remember this? In addition, he was Governor before becoming President and therefore had very little if any personal sway or responsibility for the huge amounts of spending and debt layered upon us by previous administrations. In office, he absolutely can be faulted for his expansion of govt and his explosion in debt. However, if our economy was thriving it was all smoke and mirrors and the econo collapse of 2008 proved that. BY the hoo, Dems controlled the House and Senate at that time. Including then Senator Obama – what votes did he commit that added to the problems?

            In addition to this, before the housing and financial markets crashed, we saw 52 straight months of job growth during the Bush presidency. Things were not all rosy but to claim that he got us into this mess and to imply that things were good before he was elected is just not true

      • Tony Dockery

        The presidents rhetoric has always been on those subjects but have you noticed he hasn’t really delivered…
        He has lied about everything he campaigned for, even health care was supposed to be single payer .didn’t happen he let them at the top(health care industry cappos) write the new rules..
        His people are still poor, unemployed under educated and he still dances to the same toon old Bush danced to he panders to the rich.
        He wanted to be the first black president period and he lied and cheated us to get there…Now he has a place in history and that was all it was about. And so it will be always no matter who is president …A lot of promises have to be made favors returned and butts have to be kissed and we are of no relevance.

        he’s really not a billionaire but he has become a millionaire since becoming president. That is because he is involved with some of the richest leftists in the world.
