The blacks vote Dem because the GOP has written them off. Why should they vote for a party that doesn't care enough about them to take its case to them. The GOP does almost ZERO campaigning in black communities. The GOP runs no ads on Black Entertainment Television or on radio stations with predominantly black audiences. For at least 15 years, the GOP has had a strategy of cobbling together narrow Electoral College majorities by starting with its base of Red States, and then winning narrowly in some swing states by turning out its white married Christian base. The only time a Republican candidate for President campaigns with a black audience is the single obligatory speech before the NAACP, and that's all.

You've got it backwards. With blacks voting 95% Democrat they've written themselves off. The GOP has no reason to waste funds on a hopeless situation - the money is better spent on swing voters who are open to persuasion. Worse yet the Democrats know they have the black vote in their pocket so they take it for granted. Black unemployment, crime, and rotten schools are the result. That's what happens when you vote tribally rather than as a thinking individual.

95% block voting is "voting individually"? Sure. Go ahead and keep voting for welfare dependency, high crime, and rotten eduation -- that will show whitey! LOL

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,...
