    Obama's Feisty BET Interview Highlights Challenge He Faces In Rallying Black Voters | Fox News

    While I do not agree with much of what the president says or does, I find myself in the curious position of defending Obama on this. I am against programs that disproportionately aid any one group over another.

    It would seem that the presidents support in the black community isn't nearly as solid as many liberals would like to think.

    He will get 95% of the black vote and turnout will be the same. Read what the black community says about Tavis Smiley and Cornell West.

    At the rate that O is falling, he'll be very lucky to get 75 percent.

    wtf does that have to do with this interview by Emmett Miller on BET, or with the presidents sagging 'strong support' numbers in the black community?

    Because 98% of blacks view the republican party as racist and will rally around Obama in a "us vs them" mode, come Nov 2012.

    Do you think before you type? Name the last democratic presidential nominee who got 75% of the black vote.

    Always. Again, he'll be lucky to get 75 percent of the vote. Black unemployment is 17 percent. That's despicable and appalling. So, you're rallying for that? With the state of the union in dire straits, O will be lucky to carry 4 or so states ie CA, Il, NY, MA. If overall unemployment was around 5 to 6 and a half percent, he'd probably win again.
