Many black voters unhappy with Obama over same-sex marriage
South Florida Sun-Sentinel ^ | May 20, 2012 | Anthony Man

Posted on 05/21/2012 7:13:08 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

At the Neighborhood Unisex Barbershop on Sistrunk Boulevard in northwest Fort Lauderdale, the room fell silent as the president's interview came on TV. At Mount Calvary Baptist Church in Pompano Beach, the pastor turned the midweek Bible study into an open forum on the controversy. At St. John Primitive Baptist Church in Delray Beach, the pastor expressed his concerns.

So? Blacks aren’t going to vote for Romney. The best we can hope for is that they stay home.

Over the weekend the NAACP announced there support for gay marriage. It is now a civil right.

Every black here in the office this morning announced a lack of support to the NAACP.

Meaningless. They’ll always vote for the “brother”. This gay issue will blow (snicker) over in a month. He’ll promise a gold tooth in every mouth.

The bad news for romney supporters is that he will not get the black voters on the right; the ones Bush got (10%) Religious pastors on the right said they will not vote for either obama or romney because of his mormon beliefs. They said Mormonism is racist.

Most accounts of the percentage of blacks that voted for Obama range from 94 to 96%. That is statistical complete agreement in my book. Just like unemployment, there are always outliers (for unemployment 4 or 5% unemployed is considered ‘full employment’).

Such a high percentage points to only one thing, and we all know what that is - and it won’t change this go round.

Sounds like the black support for “Bruthah #1” might drop all the way to 97%.

They’ll vote for him. They might not have the otherworldly gazes of enchantment on their faces this time... but they have his back.

If THIS is all they can find to take issue with, they’re too stupid to be permitted a vote to begin with. THEY should take note of that. If you don’t want to be considered a fool, don’t act like one.

which will mean the Black Half of Obama won’t get their Vote in November.

Given a choice between a down-low brother and a white guy, the black vote will still go 95+% to the brotha.

Any displeasure is going to be swamped by tribal solidarity and the welfare demographic.

Yes, many American Blacks will stay home, for two main reasons, first the gay marriage issue, and second, the smart ones have enough common sense to realize that voting for Obama dooms American Blacks for the next fifty years, for many clear and obvious reasons. Having stated the truth here, an overwhelming number of American Blacks will blindly, without good reason, other then his race, will vote for Obama. Clearly a huge mistake. But.....you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink. Sad!!!

So what! They’ll still vote for the POS anyway just like the Jews will vote for the ba$tard too even though he’d like to cut their heads off like his muslim buddies.

Incredible that both groups would have anything to do with the dummycrats, but, in the case of the “blacks,” he’s their mealticket, and there ain’t nuttin’ like freebies!

HELLO PEOPLE!

Give them a choice.

Romney needs to select Allen West as his VP.

This is the best chance we have for freeing people from the Democrat Plantation.

Romney MUST pick a VP who will energize the Conservatives. Sarah or West both would.

Plus, all those Independents who voted for Obama to show just how non-racist they were might even begin to THINK, instead of EMOTE.

It only has meaning if they take it to the voting booths...

That said, i do believe he may stand to lose 5-10% of the Blacks who voted for him just because he was "Black". Plus, there's no telling how many Dims will keep spouting the public support to "save face" but who will either touch the screen for another or not vote. I can see cracks in the facades of some hard-core lefties I work with.

Can we be honest here?

American Blacks are the most racist people you'll find. Sorry, but they jumped the shark a few years ago. People are sick and tired of being called racists by these people.

They'll never stop sucking the liberal, welfare tit. American Blacks (a majority) want an excuse to not have to try. You'd think they'd be embarrassed. Oops!

To this very day - the most celebrated member of the democrat party is Robert KKK Byrd. No other democrat in history has received more internal party promotions then Robert KKK Byrd. He was even recently third in line to the Presidency as voted internally by his fellow democrats. He was called the ‘conscience of the senate’ by many of his fellow democrats. Robert KKK Byrd is the face of the democrat party today in 2012.

Coincidence?

Now today in 2012 the KKK democrats seek to redefine civil rights and no one even brings up the fact that it is the party of the KKK who is doing this. Is being black equal to being a homosexual? According to democrats it is.

From the article;

By Nov. 6, any erosion of support should be minimal, said Beulah Hill, 64, a Democratic Party activist who lives in the Park Ridge area of Deerfield Beach. "That's not going to deter people from voting for President Obama," she predicted.

African Americans will vote in lock step the Obozo Halfrican. Plain and simple.

More a comment to folks in general...

From Colorado, I wound up in college in the Bronx in the early 60’s. The bars (almost all Irish) on Webster Avenue all had the picture of JFK very, very prominently over the bar. Very Democrat.

Many, many of those people have since moved out of New York and have joined non-ethnic (compared to a big city) America. The total devotion to one man or one ethnic is long gone for them. They outgrew it.

Right now, thinking of DC, the ethnic solidarity in DC and elsewhere is still fairly strong. But enough folks are leaving, for jobs or marriage or whatever and are moving into not-so-black areas. It’s not fast, but it’s happening. At a certain point, solidarity dissipates and people become individuals. I guess with many of the big city black communities that aren’t just poverty/crime sinkholes that this process will be very noticeable in the next 10 years.

This solidarity is not forever.

My neighbor, who is my best friend at this time, happens to be black. He is highly educated and is a moderate democrat. He has told me that, at this time, that he does not plan to vote, although he voted for Obama last time. The gay marriage issue has him sick, and it makes him sicker when they liken it to the civil right struggle of the 60's.

Now, he might still vote come November, but I think this issue has a great chance of disheartening many black voters. The enthusiasm gap is going to be there, and that is important.

The only way out for Obama, as I can see, is for there to be some new Racial incident, watch it and see..

The hilarious thing with as West pick would be the indignant left would come out and scream about him shooting a gun off near the head of a terrorist.

Most Americans will be supportive of him because he did it to save his men. It is a mild Jack Bower of 24 time behavior. The majority of Americans would see him as a man of action and a hero, but the left won't recognize that. In their bubble, what West did was horrendous. They would play it up, while most people would eat it up.

Beulah Hill, a community activist, came to a rap session on human rights out of curiosity. Hill came because many in her community could not.

Lovette Turner, who described herself as conflicted.

Her 19-year-old daughter, who has gay friends, was ecstatic. She said a cousin in his 70s has been in a same-sex relationship for as long as she can remember, and the partner is called “cousin” by the family.

Black Pastor Now Supports Obama

May 16, 2012 60Reverend Emmett Burns, a prominent black pastor in Maryland, made quite the sensation when he was interviewed by CNN in the wake of President Obama’s announcement that he supports same-sex marriage. He promised to neither vote for President Obama nor for Mitt Romney. “I don’t plan on voting for Romney, for sure,” he said on CNN. “Right now, I plan to stay home.”

But in an interview with National Review Online, Reverend Burns says that he changed his mind. “I’m from Mississippi where blacks fought long and hard” for voting rights. “Someone is going to be elected president, and I don’t want it to be Romney. I, for one, support Obama.”

Reverend Burns is a Democratic member of the Maryland House of Delegates, in addition to his responsibilities as pastor for the church he founded. Marriage, he now claims, “is not a make-or-break issue” for him. He still believes that same-sex marriage is “dangerous for the nation,” and that it’s “bad policy.” He envisions the day where “children will be told that homosexuality and heterosexuality are equal.” Traditional marriage, he believes, is still the best policy.

What is really fascinating and sad to me is the correlation of the 2008 election map and "The Black Belt" across the south.

This map mashes the election map with a map on cotton production in the 1800's The black dots represent 2,000 bales of cotton.

The land was really fertile along a band across the south. Plantations formed up along that band, and there was a really large poor black population that is there to this day.

I got this map from http://www.vigorousnorth.com/2008/11/black-belt-how-soil-types-determined.html

The fertile area was caused by an ancient shore line.

Ken Hamblin "the black Avenger" used to have a great radio show. He hated when the left would equate the homosexual agenda to the civil rights movement. He would say, when thing turn ugly, you can pretend to be straight, but you can't pretend not to be black.

So they’re fine with abortion, single-party dissolution of marriage, importing slave-wage laborers to take their jobs, euthanasia, economic fascism, the suspension of religious liberty and opposition to school choice, but they draw the line at same-sex “marriage”? Don’t get me wrong; I’m glad they’re finally on our side on an issue,... but seriously?

I can’t find the transcript; only the actual audio. In the last minute, the pastor on the right says that black conservatives will never vote for obama, but they also will not vote for romney because of his mormonism.

Jimmy The Greek could’ve explained why.

It’s not surprising at all that a population that was bred for certain traits, including reproductive viability, would still retain the instinctive rejection of homosexual behavior.

Au Contraire Mon Alinskykite - The negative impact upon the socio-biological fitness of human populations that normalize the abomination of nature isn’t “ridiculous”, it’s just historical self-evidence of the self-destructive nature of homosexual behavior among humans.

Got Due Penalty for Perversion?

And there’s nothing ridiculous about the fact that slaves were selected for fitness; nor is there anything rediculous about the fact that the process of enslaving them further increased certain fitness traits among the population that, for multiple generations, survived.

Got survival of the fittest?

How many reproductively viable offspring have your “gay” penguins managed to produce in the San Francisco Zoo, ehh?

ZERO.

Ridiculous, says the Paradox.

Jimmy “The Greek” Snyder asserted that Black Athletes were superior performers because the process of natural selection was given a substantial bump by the environment they’d recently, genetically speaking, survived in — Human predation ala the Slave Trade. Is that “ridiculous”?

Is it ridiculous that breeders would want, and select for, increased reproductive viability among their livestock - bipedal or otherwise? No?

Just as folks with healthy instincts know not to eat rotten food, they also instinctively reject homosexuality - because it is unhealthy and self-destructive. Maybe you think that’s “ridiculous”?

Evidently Black Americans haven’t had their instinctive rejection of homosexuality desensitized and/or bred out of them, yet.

Can the same be said for certain European blood lines? Evidently not.

“Ridiculous” says the Paradox. Uhuh,
