When blacks look up to Allen west, Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell as heroes and role models, things will get much better for them.

Get over yourselves. That African-Americans feel the need to emphasize their African roots should make you question why they don't feel comfortable identifying as exclusively American. Maybe it's because if the treatment they've received at the hands of their fellow "Americans."

I apologize to America's young people, whose dashed dreams and dim employment prospects I had laughed at, believing these to be a direct result of their voting for Obama.

On closer examination, it turns out that young voters, aged 18-29, overwhelmingly supported Romney. But only the white ones.

According to Pew Research, 54 percent of white voters under 30 voted for Romney and only 41 percent for Obama. That's the same percentage Reagan got from the entire white population in 1980. Even the Lena Dunham demographic -- white women under 30 -- slightly favored Romney.
