Obama’s approval rating – Whites 36%, Blacks 91%
Do these numbers reflect racism? In a word – No. Although there can be no doubt there is some degree of racism involved, it is more a matter of pride. For the 91% to be racist it would need to be anti-white. It is not. It is pro-black. It is a happy feeling not an angry one. ‘We finally have one of our own, a “brother” in the White House’.
Republicans freed the slaves. Democrats stole the credit. Now they keep them on the metaphorical plantation. As long as the Democrats feed and cloth them, they will get their votes. But the extreme numbers we are seeing now are a one time phenomenon. There will never be another first black president.
