    Blacks who choose to go to the polls this time around will continue to vote for Obama...however, if the numbers continue to be tight, then what could hurt him is the lack of enthusiasm by all of his former supporters. People who were invested in seeing a black man elected already achieved that goal, so now some of them will be fine to go back to sitting on the couch and bitching about all the politicians.

    So Obama wasn't an ass suck, and made his choice based on human rights. That's what a leader does.

    Like I said in another thread, you don't know the black community. Obama will garner more black support than in 2008. Even the blacks that oppose gay marriage, in the article, say they will support Obama. Do you know why? Because the black community sees the attacks against Obama from the Republicans as mostly based on his race. It now is an "us vs them" issue and Obama is "us". You have alot to learn about the black community.

    Keep dreamin'.:lol: No, I already addressed the group think mentality/history amongst the black community...but the honeymoon is over for a certain percentage. If you paid attention, then you'd understand my point that with the numbers being tight, every vote will count. Obama will not inspire the same droves this time, no matter how badly you personally are motivated.

    Watch and learn. The numbers won't be as tight as they were with McCain. Obama will still get 98% of the black vote and with the same voter turnout. What you don't understand is that it isn't about Obama, just as the OJ verdict wasn't about OJ. Us vs them. You have no clue.
