Pssstttt....Blacks voted for Obama because we're tired of hearing insanely racist shit like this.
I'm a college educated African-American with a salaried corporate job that pays more than the national household median, and am in a happy marriage, and have a joint household income in the six figures. Obviously, I voted for Obama so that I can get handouts...that I don't get. Yeah, I want to get "free stuff", not because the GOP fiscal policies are economically unsound, not because the modern GOP is saturated with authoritarians and dominionists who want to drag this country kicking and screaming into a halcyon past that never even existed. Not because such a large vocal portion of the Republican constituent routinely say shit like this. Nope, I just want welfare, even though I don't even qualify for it by any stretch of the imagination. It's my fondest dream to drop my upper middle class lifestyle to live on a few hundred dollars a month.

Actually, it had far more to do with the fact that the GOP has been seized by lunatics, bigots, and religious zealots and they nominated the most brazen liar in the history of presidential elections. This nominee then compounded it by selecting a guy who wants to end Social Security, and Medicare along with every other government program besides the military and pay and pensions for GOoPers, as his running mate. This would really, really piss me off because I paid in for around 50 years and, since I committed the cardinal sin of getting sick before official retirement age and had to spend everything I ever earned, I depend on those programs in order to survive and spend money that boosts the economy. The near certainty that Mittens would have bungled and lied us into more hopeless military actions was just the icing on the cake.
BTW. You can take your faux concern for black people, fold it four ways, light it on fire and ram it up your southern orifice. You do realize that the cult your boy calls his own held the official, doctrinal, position that the only way a non white person could go to Heaven is as a slave? Don't you? Nah. You don't know anything about anything. Heck! You don't even know that the Mormons settled in the middle of the desert because they were virtually at war with the U.S. over the issue of marrying a whole bunch of children.

They voted overwhelmingly for Obama because they felt that the Conservative party was only going to help the richest of the rich, and a large proportion of the African-Americans are not among the richest of the rich.
Government welfare HELP their families to survive, how is that destroying the family? Societal prejudices condems many of their youth to perpetual unemployment and prison, not welfare. They view the goverment as something decided by We the People, and designed to serve the MAJORITY of the people.
Abortions happen to embryos and fetuses, not babies, and they usually happen with the consent of the mother. Or do you have citations for thousands of women who are kidnapped and forced into abortion clinics?
