Skip to comments.Black voters look to leverage their loyalty [BWA HA HA HA! Good Luck with that!]
Posted on 11/23/2012 5:59:58 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
When black voters gave President Barack Obama 93 percent support on Election Day in defiance of predictions that they might sit it out this year, black leaders breathed a collective sigh of relief.
That encouraged those leaders to try to leverage more attention from both Obama and Congress. Although they waver over how much to demand from the president particularly in light of defeated GOP challenger Mitt Romney's assertion that Obama gave "gifts" to minorities in exchange for their votes they are delivering postelection wish lists to the president anyway.
"I think the president heard us loud and clear. The collective message was, 'Let's build on where we already are,'" the Rev. Al Sharpton told reporters after a White House meeting last week with a collection of advocates representing largely Democratic constituencies.

Slavery Reparations, baby!
I wants my 40 acres and a mule, homes!
>>I think the president heard us loud and clear. The collective message was, ‘Let’s build on where we already are
I think the president heard us loud and clear. The collective message was, ‘Give us more free stuff and tax someone else to pay for it’
Sorry people. You can take a seat in the back of the bus. The illegal alien and Latino lobby is growing faster and is far more sexy.
Good luck with that ..... Obama didn't do all that much for them when he needed their votes - now he doesn't need them at all. Obama trades on his 'black half' ancestry for immunity from anything and everything a 'white guy' president would be hounded with by the presstitutes. He grew up 'foreign', not within the civil rights movement - he has little in common with 'American blacks' and uses them shamelessly, but doesn't do much to improve their condition.
you are so right, obama has their vote he is employed for the next 4 years and they are so screwed. so are we for that matter just we know it.
“Beaten wife syndrome.”
Must be; the welfare reservations near me (especially Newark, NJ) are poorer and more violent than four years ago. Blacks in this country have nothing to cheer about; a lot that had started to make their way into the middle class just got shoved back onto the dependence plantation...
Yes they are!
Sharptongue doesn’t do anything for no reward.
He and Obama have one thing in common, they both have the ability to use blacks for their own advancement.
What person in their right mind would have believed a couple of years back that a cable news source would use Al Sharptongue as a journalist. Ludicruous
What person in their right mind would ever believe that an inexperienced racist Community Organiser would rise to be President. Even more ludicrous.
We're willing to be the racists we accuse everyone else of being if you'll just make Gubbmint my Baby Daddy.
We want more free ObamaPhones...and throw in some Olde English 800 too
Why would the morons think that gives them any leverage to ask for anything?
Hispanics will get pandered to now, the moron blacks will be pushed to the back of the short bus again.
The vast majority of them will be shoved back to the back of the bus by the Democrats.
The Democrats get exactly what they want from black voters. They get the votes and keep them in slavery. It’s been that way forever, why change things now?
Remember...Obama told Putin that he would be so much more "flexible," after the election.
Good luck with that.
Fools, he doesn’t need you anymore.
He didn’t give a crap about you when he KNEW he would need you. Why would he now when you no longer serve a purpose?
Proudly walking into brick walls since 1972
Just as Vigilante poster has said, the Hispanics/Latinos have way overpowered “African -Americans”, and the “African-Americans” have done , or said NOTHING to try to stop them. The Hispanics/Latinos don’t shoot and kill their brothers, and I would bet the abortions are miniscule too. So, African-Americans, take a back seat to the Hispanics/Latinos.
Had they “sat it out” they would have more leverage with the Democrat Party, By voting at 93% they merely demonstrate that they are a reliable source ov votes no matter what they get or don’t get for it.
American Blacks are certainly not the sharpest of knives in the drawer. They remain....and will remain permanently adrift at sea under Obama. Obama could care less about them........now that he has gotten their votes. Just plain & simple fools....they are!!! Go figure!!! They have no leverage whatsoever and have done a magnificent job of stranding themselves politically, with no resulting benefit!!!
Useless Idiots (my term for useful idiots ala Stalin)...
Blacks ALWAYS vote 93-97% Democrat. Why do they deserve to get anything extra this election?
Black voters are the pro-abortion arm of the Evangelical voter. Whites vote for life. Blacks vote for welfare, defending life not even on the radar for them. The vast majority of Planned Parenthood baby killing mills are located in or near black neighborhoods all over America. Courtesy of democrats, blacks can abort their children 24 hours a day, for a couple of dollars. Thank democrats for desroying the pro-life community in black America.
VOTER FRAUD, BABY.
This would be the Kick Me Coalition of plantation voters, who vote 96% Democrat, live off the government and dodge bullets in their lousy neighborhoods. They won’t ever figure it out.
Because they voted 140% Democrat this time.
They can wait in line for the next 4 years along with the gay community, waiting patiently for their savior to make good his almost-promises.
Well, he didn’t come thru for them in his first 4 years, only idiots and fools would continue to believe.
And they do. How pathetic.
That statement is illogical.
One does not presuppose the other.
What if only 100 blacks showed up at the polls? And 93 of them voted for Obama.
Would this same idiot journalist still claim that blacks defied predictions that they would sit this one out?
We need to know the total participation rate of blacks in this election to make any sort of blanket claim.
But that won't stop a journalist from being stupid.
“Blacks made up 13 percent of the electorate this year, about the same as 2008, while participation among whites shrank slightly to 72 percent and Hispanics increased to 10 percent, national exit polls showed.’
This doesn’t add up
Actually hispanics rival blacks in abortion, out of wedlock birth, high school drop out rates and crime. Not quite as bad but moving up fast.
The mule will be dead within a week for lack of care.
Couldn't happen to a "nicer" bunch.
How about a one way boat ticket back to their homeland?
93%? That's IT? The dems have got some serious work ahead of them. It's called the "margin of error" (voting booth errors, that is). I think the other 7% intended to vote dem; it's just that the dems need to redouble their efforts to train these buffoons in the simple mechanics of the voting booth.
They seem to have it down to a science in Philadelphia, Cleveland, etc. It must be the rural clowns that are having trouble voting right, er left.
The block vote of racist blacks for Obama was 100 percent in hundreds of precincts in Philly and Cleveland, so the 93 percent figure quoted in this article is probably low.
Obama already has racist policies favoring blacks, such as AG Eric”my people” Holder excluding white Americans from federal hate crime protection against racist violence, racist quotas for school discipline problems because too many black students are punished for thuggish behavior, and new Draconian “disparate impact” rules that automatically consider any under representation of blacks in any favorable category to be illegal, so I donno what else he can do to favor voters of his race that he hasnt done already.
I guess the Disparate Impact laws could be extended to violent crime where the laws against murder have a disparate impact on black males who are the most violent demographic of them all.
Perhaps Obama could decree that every other black murderer should not be arrested or incarcerated to lower the disparate impact of murder statutes?Or maybe he will issue an executive order to arrest innocent whites along with guilty blacks to even out this “racist” disparate impact?
Sound far fetched? Just wait. The loony racist left is never satisfied with their extreme race dogma. It must be ratcheted up to even more extreme positions when ever possible.
“The Hispanics/Latinos dont shoot and kill their brothers, and I would bet the abortions are miniscule too.”
In my experience (I live near and work in towns with large Puerto Rican, Dominican, and Brazilian populations), this statement is mostly right: plenty of violent crimes, but more stabbings than outright gun battles. Also plenty of births to single mothers in their teens and twenties — with law enforcement, government healthcare, and bennies for the kids/moms, a great, big circle-jerk of claims on the taxpayer.
The problem with the black community is that they are the least educated of all the different ethnic groups comprising the population. The bulk of jobs has shifted from primarily low trained and heavy labor-intensive jobs to information and skill-intensive jobs. Those least prepared to work in the new paradigm i.e. Blacks, will suffer the most.
Good luck with that. The Kenyan doesn’t need them anymore. Ask Ohio how that’s working out for them. Sudden jump in unemployment. Scheduled cuts to food stamps. Gas prices jumped 15% in most areas the morning after the election.
40 acres? Didn’t Obama just give thousands more acres to the spotted owl? Sharpton, you’re below the spotted owl on B-HO’s list!
