    Excellent article.

    Obama has been a disappointment to the black community, and I don't think he'll get as large a percentage of the black vote as people think.

    More and more blacks are moving up into the middle class and becoming more politically aware. They're the ones abandoning Obama and the Democrat party like rats deserting a sinking ship.

    However, the lower class and poorer blacks will still follow the tradition of voting for whoever keeps that welfare check coming.

    Last time I checked, President Obama was only half negro. I'm 1/4 Irish, 1/4 Norwegian, 1/4 German, and the rest really unknown. For al I know the rest of me is negro. I'm not even sure those folks from other countries were caucasian. Obama got much of the negro vote because he has black skin. It's really sad when race is taken over ability.

    President has probably hurt the negro community much more than any other. High unemployment seems to hiurt that demographic than any other. It makes no sense why someone out of work for a long time would vote to keep the person who is responsible for their financial hardship, in office.

    It's not the price of a black president, it's the price of a BHO presidency. The buck stops with him as an individual, not as a member of particular mixed genetic background.

    +1 to what Doc said. It's not about being black that cost us. It's about being an empty suit that cost us. It about his communist ties and ideology that costs us. I'm not voting for Romney because he is white. I'm voting for Romney because he's not obummer.

    but if the empty suit had not been black it would have not been elected president.

    True, but that failure is with the electorate and his failure once elected is that of an individual.

    Racial equality is not something the government has the power to give.

    It would be fantastic if that were true. Unfortunately that is not that case.

    While I appreciate the spirit of your post, the sad truth is that black politicians in America have a pretty sorry record of corruption and incompetence that can no longer be ignored for the sake of political correctness. I can't imagine myself voting for another black politician ever.

    True. But by Obama's actions, he is taking it away. He and Eric Holder are doing more for racial inequality Than anyone else.

    The price of a black president is that EVERYTHING becomes about race.

    If you honestly consider his past, his family and his up-bringing....Obama has very, very little in common with the average black American.

    Other than skin color, musical taste and maybe views towards white people....what DOES Obama have in common with most American black people?

    Dr. King is rolling in his grave at the racism coming from this administration and it's followers.

    This is not what he fought and died for.
