Bravo! A well-stated position paper on one of the most puzzling situations in American politics today. I work in a well-integrated and overwhelmingly Democrat office (I am the ONLY conservative of about 100 employees) and am appalled that the privileged blacks are so angry at less privileged whites (works that way in our office -- no clerks, secretaries, or underlings are black or hispanic). I would still like to know what it will take to change the perception -- but am tired of being tarred with the feather-laden goo of black racially charged accusations (whether they fit me or not). I choose instead to stand aside and let the chips fall where they may.

With that being said, do you recall when the Federal Government had to protect citizens from the state, Little Rock ,Ark , Birmingham, Mississippi. Jim Crow laws, the Federal Government had to protect citizens’ right to vote, we even see now today how the Federal Government must protect citizens from voter’s suppression, can you imagine what the States would be like if given the control they desire, minorities would not stand a chance....So yes they vote Democrat, because the Dems will not make laws that work against their effort to get ahead, they are talking about cutting programs that give their child a fighting chance, he would not otherwise have—unless he’s/she's' white.

You can fight the racist BS untill you are blue in the face but nothing will change untill you get rid of the jesse Jackson's of the world, they make their living from this racist BS and keep this stuff alive

How is it that the party of Lincoln, a party that led the way in opposing slavery, Jim Crow laws, lynching, the KKK, poll taxes, led the way on integration and voting rights for black Americans, and percentage wise, voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act in greater numbers than Democrats is now only getting about 10% of the black vote? Democrats say racism, but any objective observer would quickly discard that explanation given the significant number of popular black Republicans. If even a large percentage of Republicans were racist, certainly Allen West, Herman Cain, Clarence...
