Too many members of "black communities" have a history of voting only for "black canidates". This is why inner city places like Detroit, Cleveland, etc., have become warm nesting places for corrupt black politicians who feast on whatever monies can be taken away from the community for personal gain during what appears to be lifetime jobs for them. They certainly are getting the type of government they voted for, however, most honest black citizens of these communities have to work much harder to maintain any type of control over their own lives. Innocent black citizens in more black communities have been hurt by the "race war" Obama is conducting against members of the black race in "white communities" than have ever been hurt before.

Nothing like the 96% bigoted block voting we see from your side. Not even close.

It is puzzling that so many minorities voted for Barack Obama over Mitt Romney considering how disproportionately they have suffered economically during Obama's presidency. Black unemployment under Obama increased at a higher pace than whites, from 12.7% to 14.1%, ending at almost twice the unemployment rate of whites. Now, one out of every seven blacks is unemployed. White unemployment barely increased under Obama, from 7.1% to 7.4%.

Blacks' median income has fallen 11.1% under Obama, more than twice as much as whites. The disparity in wealth between whites and blacks nearly doubled during Obama's tenure. According to CNN,...
