I know of no one who voted against Obama because he was black. Remember he is half white. I voted against him twice. In 2008, I voted against because he was a socialist.. In 2012 I voted against because i learned from experience that in addition to being a socialist, he is a fabulist ( ie, Liar), and an anti-colonialist who believes that the US has robbed other nations instead of raising other nations through trade. My vote was not enough to stop the coming demise of the USA. This week Thomas Sowell put it well we are headed "Forward " toward the failed policies of the past centuries.
