Ackmed,

Defending one's people is not hypocritical. I've only voted for one Republican in my entire life: The late New York Senator Jacob Javits.

I would have voted for the late New York Mayor John Lindsay, but he switched to the Democratic Party.

Now, there are scores of Republican voters who are decent and cool. But I have noticed quite a few retreating to their love of guns and veiled threats of violence if they don't get their way:

Such as showing a photo I.Ds to vote even as they support the closure of state offices that have the authority to issue one. Attend inadequately funded public schools. Never protest if community members are gunned down while doing nothing wrong.

We are U.S. citizens with inalienable rights. The same as you. However trying to get folks such as you to realize this has been a centuries long pain.

Republicans simply do not believe in Fair Play, Equality or Justice for All.

And what do I expect Blacks to do, Ackmed? Ignore people such as yourself and outline a course of action that will prove advantageous for them.

In 2006 the freaking chair of the Republican party apologized to the NAACP for ignoring the needs of African Americans for decades, and in fact acknowledged they actually exploited racism for pollical gains, or as he worded it, ' tried to benefit politically from racial polarization' http://archive.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2005/07/15/gop_ignored_black_vote_chairman_says/

That was a mere 14 years ago and and not much has changed.

Please explain

I have often posted on more than three news forums at a time. This recent election season had me a bit worried. But I wanted to know just how many Black people, men in particular, felt so arrogant that they would toss their own people aside support Trump.

It did not take me long to get an idea.

That is the explanation.

Heh, well, as we’re already necroed, you want evidence that the female part of our species is superior to us men when it comes to the larger social construct? IIRC 92% of black women voted against Trump while “only” 70% of black men did the same. Its the same pattern just white-shifted down the ballot. If we really want to make this thing work, men should step back and women step forward.

Tongue in cheek, but theres a gram of truth in there...

No, there's 50 Kg of truth there. Put a woman in charge.

Another stat show the moral fortitude 98% of black women in Alabama voted for Doug Jones while 63% of white women voted for the pedo
I dont know what their cultural damage is but I imagine its the same kind of deficiency that goes “being president is a mans job, women cant handle that”... stuck in an evolutionary ditch somewhere. Hopefully some years with a liberal agenda will woke some of these people up.
