That number may not seem very high but compared to the 0.001% that Republicans John 'cadaver' McCain and Mitt 'Mormon' Romney received, it is quite substantial
And really that is how it should be in an election..
People as individuals making up their mind to vote left or right rather than some racial, ethnic or sex orientation or gender based 90% to 99% bloc for one candidate or party
And for the Party that wins office in spite of only getting 1-3% of that group's support, what is the incentive to put policy into place to improve their lives when as a President and Party, they'll never get credit or benefit in future elections
We honestly do not know what groups are steadfast Republican (super-wealthy people also vote Democrat i.e. Buffett, Zuckerberg, Gates, etc..) but we do know what groups Stupidly lockstep vote Democrat..
Blacks, Jews and Gays..
FDR personally had the power to let them into the nation, to save their lives and the Democrat President declined, sending men, women and children to their ultimate deaths.
And the Party is continually rewarded for that action with Jewish money and support
As for gays, everything they've earned in terms of equality and legal protection by Democrats as come piece-meal; rather begrudging
In 2008 and 2012, Obama stated marriage is between a man and a woman. The Only reason he changed positions was his VP Biden publicly humiliated him on the issue, forcing the abrupt change.
As for gay marriage, whether you support it or not, Obama did Nothing to make it reality yet took credit like the Scum that he is after 5 Supreme Court Justices voted for it, making it so..
But lets get back to blacks and specifically the Horrible job this worthless President has done while in office
"On every leading economic issue, in the leading economic issues Black Americans have lost ground in every one of those leading categories. So in the last ten years it hasn’t been good for black folk. This is the president’s most loyal constituency that didn’t gain any ground in that period."
Of course they didn't.. Obama had their vote; why bother taking the time to help them.. What are blacks going to do -- vote Republican??
Larry Elder, a radio talk show host who is also black but 'Gasp!!' Conservative spoke very honestly about blacks under Obama during an interview a while back on Fox News..
"What about poverty? In 2009, when Obama took office, the black poverty rate was 25.8 percent. As of 2014, according to Pew Research Center, the black poverty rate was 27.2 percent.
What about income? CNNMoney says, “Minority households’ median income fell 9 percent between 2010 and 2013, compared to a drop of only 1 percent for whites.”
The Financial Times wrote last October: “Since 2009, median non-white household income has dropped by almost a 10th to $33,000 a year, according to the U.S. Federal Reserve’s survey of consumer finances....
What about net worth and the black-white “wealth gap”? The Financial Times said: “The median non-white family today has a net worth of just $18,100 — almost a fifth lower than it was when Mr. Obama took office. White median wealth, on the other hand, has inched up by 1 percent to $142,000.
In 2009, white households were seven times richer than their black counterparts. That gap is now eightfold. Both in relative and absolute terms, blacks are doing worse under Mr. Obama.” ...
When looking only at “black net worth” — which is lower compared to non-whites as a whole — white households are actually 13 times wealthier than black households.
From 2010 to 2013, according to the Federal Reserve, white household median wealth increased a modest 2.4 percent, while Hispanic families’ wealth declined 14 percent, to $13,700. But blacks’ net worth fell from $16,600 to $11,000.
This is an astonishing three-year drop of 34 percent. Investors Business Daily put it this way, “That’s a steeper decline than occurred from 2007 to 2010, when blacks’ net worth fell 13.5 percent.” The black/white “wealth-gap” has reached a 25-year high.
What about unemployment? In 2009, black unemployment was 12.7 percent, and by 2014, it had fallen to 10.1 percent. This sounds like good news until one examines the black labor force participation rate — the percentage of blacks working or seeking work. It’s the lowest since these numbers have been recorded."
All it took was a pathetic speech about 'If I had a son, he'd be like Trayvon" (Fucking asshole President!) and the 'D' affiliation
No white Republican President could get away with making the lives of so many black people worse over the course of the last 8 years as he has.. all because he himself is mulatto.
We had to specify the Party because when thinking about it, Bill Clinton made lives extremely difficult for most blacks and many are to this day clueless
The arrest and drug-related imprison rate dramatically increased for blacks more than whites as a result..
Did we forget to mention Hillary then referring to black teens who sell drugs as 'super-predators'?
And 86% of them are Still voting God-Damn Democrat!
Baa Baa.. Black Sheep...
