During the time leading to the elections of 2008 and after President Obama was sworn in as president, Many on the right have claimed that blacks only voted for Obama was because he is black, Since 1936 till present day, blacks have voted democrat on an average of 88%. In 1936 till present day, there have only been a few black run for president, and until 2008 there has only been one nominated as the democratic nominee for President of the United States. Blacks were given the right to vote in 1870, and since that time, they have voted for the party that best represented their interest, and 99% of the time they voted for white men who represented their interest, so why would it be a stretch to vote for a black man who represents the black interest? Here is where the front runner for the Republican, as of today, Herman Cain has a problem, and if he were to win the 2012 presidential race, the right would have to answer this question. If black people vote 88% of the time for a democratic choice for POTUS, and in 2008 they did just that, it just happens to be this time the candidate was black, If we have a Herman Cain in the White House, can we say that blacks only voted for him was because he's black? The argument that those on the right could possibly give is that he was voted in because of his values or lack of political experiences. He has no record as a politician, no executive experience, and he claims to be a Christian. but we wont have to ask that question because blacks wont vote again for Obama because he is black, it will be because of that pesky 88% thing. it will be that thing that blacks have done since they were given the right to vote in 1870. it will be that thorn in the republicans side thing that blacks have done since 1936. It will be that thing that those on the right seem to wanna ignore. Blacks vote for the democratic party regardless of race.
