    40+ years of complete electoral devotion to one party (D) and what has that gotten you?

    And you scorn those who would dare to question that path?

    I thinks it's pretty safe to say the NAACP is not too fond of black conservatives

    i keep reading that kind of stuff from conservatives and don't know what it's supposed to mean. are we rewarded for our votes in that manner?
    If I vote Democratic, do I make out like a bandit during a Democratic administration and suffer under a GOP one? And the opposite for you?

    Obviously, in many ways, the situation and possibilities for American blacks has improved greatly in these past 40 years. But many of the income gaps between whites and blacks have stayed the same. Would that have been different had blacks voted for, say, Reagan. What reward would they have gotten?

    For some, for others not so much. Essentially we're talking about the war of poverty which didn't work out very well.

    That's what the Detroit councilwoman seemed to think and express.

    But their "all in" nature hasn't changed a bit. FWIW, a wing of the (D) party. Sad. Only marginalizes the power of those whose interests they claim to serve.

    Doesn't make it any more sad. You know, as if (R) is more "Godly". Same counterproductive (unless you are a pol or work for a Pol Non Profit) dipchit premise.

    1. (First paragraph): That what they want you (or less astute voters) to believe. Works both ways too. As if we are somehow more favorable to God if an (R) is in office. Further, when you buy into this concept, you put yourself into a win or lose mentality when it should logically be anything but. Wouldn't a more prudent strategy be to work both sides to your own advantage?
    2. (Second Graph): A question: Do you think having more blacks become (R) would be a good thing or bad thing for blacks? I think it would be a pretty clear indicator that the gap is shrinking.

    Frankly, IMO, the whole race, religion, sexual orientation thing is pretty much a smoke screen and fund raising tool.

    It would have created a better mandate for changing the culture. Their leaders would have seen the shift and followed. possibly leading to a real change in strategy that would have closed the gap. In other words, Jesse Jackson (for instance) would have become irrelevant, and REAL change could occur.
