Shocking News! Black Voters Support Obama

I'm not really sure why AP took this story down, I mean its a mantra repeated in many stories.

Surviving slavery, segregation and discrimination has forged a special pride in African-Americans. Now some are saying this hard-earned pride has become prejudice in the form of blind loyalty to President Barack Obama.

Are black people supporting Obama mainly because he's black? If race is just one factor in blacks' support of Obama, does that make them racist? Can blacks' support for Obama be compared with white voters who may favor his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, because he's white?

Obama is popular in the black community because blacks can identify with him. Not to mention that first black President thingy? And also many in the black community lean left as well, because they believe it aligns with their interests.

Its never been taboo to discuss the 96 percent of Black Americans who voted for Obama in 2008.

When does it become Taboo for discussion? Well when a black person bucks the trend and votes for Mitt. And gets crucified for NOT deciding to vote just based on the wholly acceptable because he is like me.

Stacey Dash, who also has Mexican heritage, is best known for the 1995 film "Clueless" and the recent cable-TV drama "Single Ladies." On Twitter, she was called "jigaboo," "traitor," "house nigger" and worse after posting, "Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future."

The theme of the insults: A black woman would have to be stupid, subservient or both to choose a white Republican over the first black president.

In so much as whatever racism becomes apparent from this episode, the solution that AP chose, to sweep the discussion under the rug, is the least acceptable and the only decision guaranteed insure there is never any progress on*the issue.

Also if the AP's story gets flushed from the Google Cache, well I thought of that.
