    This is the conundrum for the black community. As they become a more loyal to, but smaller share of, the Democrat coalition, attention to their community will continue to be a smaller portion of the party’s priorities.

    Despite their immense loyalty and “victim” status in the party, unless a sizeable portion of black voters becomes Independent or Republican, the Democrats will have no need to work for their vote.

    Black voters have a Democrat problem, being too entrenched in one party allows them to be ignored and abused, because Republicans feel they cannot work for their vote and Democrats know they cannot lose their vote.

    Take heart, America........

    Our American Black citizens are probably 1% of the number of the world Muslim population......but, they have 1000 times the number of those speaking out against their own ill-conceived racial identity ideals.

    I hope I will see the day, those American Blacks who are speaking out, manage to influence their own destiny.

    ONLY they can alter their social course. We can only support those who are making the effort to better the Black condition. After all, they ARE Americans, and because they are Americans, they have the tools to do what needs to be done.

    As long as blacks vote as a block, and act as a block, they invite the wildly numerically superior "non-black" segment of our society to do the same. The average voter has no personal observation of the racial discrimination Black America, Inc. claims they are victims of, so the effectiveness of the victimhood strategy will diminish.

    Black voters aren't a political force because the overwhelmingly vote Dems. The Dems don't have to do anything to keep them and the Reps can't do anything to get them. The Black voters will become even less important as the Latino community grows and takes over Black congressional areas. By 2050 Latinos will be 35% and Blacks 15% of the population - 140M to 60M

    Latinos are less likely to self-enslaved With the color of their skin.

    We are in a free country, yet we are free to put fences around ourselves.

    Exactly. The Democrats know they have their vote already and don't need to do one single thing to keep it. And, don't.

    Anyone remember the movie Bulworth? Yes, Beatty is a hard-core liberal, but this quote speaks the ugly truth.

    If only we could coalesce our economic spending power, our dominance in sports and entertainment and our influence on American culture ... THEN, maybe then we'd have a chance at being more like the strictly white Republican voters of the super-red state of Mississippi:
    *The lowest per capita personal income of any state.
    *Ranked 50th (a.k.a., 'last place') among all states for health care.
    *2nd highest state in federal subsidies and spending.
    *The lowest of any state on the National Assessments of Education Progress in bothe math and science.
    *Ranked 47th on the American Human Develoment Index.

    But ... It's the 'Black Vote' that isn't faught for. :rofl:

    We ulteriorly motivated Black voters. When will we learn to vote fairly on values and principles instead of the blatantly discriminatory practices that American elections were, misfortunately, founded upon. After all, we've had 47 years of practice.

    What, and who, do you think is responsible, for instance, for Mississippi being rate so poorly, and taking so much federal money?

    Ultimately, I would suggest, the responsibility falls upon the Mississippians who vote for party instead of policy. Unless they favor policies that stagnate their economic growth and development.

    This differs from the so called conundrum of Black democrats. Speaking for myself, my policies are democratic and liberal policies. I favor universal healthcare, womens rights, PBS, same-sex marriage, responsible regulations. I disagree with many of my parties gun issues (but nobody is perfect).

    The idea that the 'Black voter' has issues other than those of the general population is absurd. We care about unemployment, jobs, crime, housing, taxes ... everything everyone else does.

    It's the Republican Party that needs to take a long hard look at itself and it's constituents to find out why it isn't more attractive to non-whites.

    90% of the black vote has gone Democrat since FDR.

    What could the Republicans do to get 50% of blacks vote Republican?

    Let me help you out here - don't reply "They shouldn't do ..."

    I'd vote Independent BEFORE I'd vote Republican.

    Hmmm... :whistling:

    Shall we extrapolate a little bit here, or shall we continue to delude ourselves as to the scope of this "problem".

    Just saying ... if for some reason I cannot vote for the Democratic candidate, I would vote for the third party before I voted Republican.
