It is hard for the Republicans to attract minority votes, when they back laws that allow police to pull over drivers when they "look like illegal alliens".
The media shares a good deal of the BLAME for any climate of racism that characterizes the 2012 presidential election. The current president of the U.S. is half black/half white, but prefers to be treated as black. A fair amount of the media has picked up on this and has helped create a racially charged climate, in which some persons charge racism by those who dare to criticize the president and some of his administration officials whose skintones are shades of black. On the other hand, there are stories like the one attached here, in which the media lumps white persons together, and gathers all "minorities" into one huge gaggle that some media writers seem to think will all vote against whites. This, writers like the Glob hack tht wrote this story content, raises 'minority voters'" political clout. If this is not a case of reverse anti-white raciam, I have never seen one.
It's not like this is an editorial. The writer of this story is simply presenting poll data, with some analysis included. Also, you are correct when you say that you have never seen a case of 'reverse racism' because there is no such thing as 'reverse racism'. The last time I checked it was all referred to as racism. Take it off auto-pilot, and actually try thinking before you launch your angry anti-globe rants.
Obama PREFERS to be treated as black! Do you actually think he could choose to be treated as white?
This election (and the last) is all about race. What do you have to say about the female vote? Race is a part of human life and media reporting on it is no different than reporting how the vote breaks down among men and women.
Some people will vote against the incumbent because of his race.
Some people will vote for the incumbent only because of his race.
No surprise there. Just write them off from the polls. That's racism.
What is disturbing is the high number of Latinos who consider "immigration" the country's biggest issue - by a wide margin. Really? Not debt? Not wars?
That same group will vote for whomever supports their view on "immigration". Let's face it. That also is racism.
Then you have that remainder in the middle, which we are told is shrinking with each election. Is it really shocking that Obama is losing the white vote? Perhaps it is not all about his policies.
Numerous studies have shown that African Americans do not think their financial situation is any worse today than it was 4 years ago. GO figure! Now, couple the research findings with the percentage of this minority group who identify with Obama and this explains this voting group.
However, the Latinos are a different scenario, due to little research to identify their voting habits. But the Latinos have forgotten Obama's promise to develop an "Immigration Policy" within his first year.
Obama's latest promise is for another Federal Government Office: In an interview earlier this week with MSNBC, Obama suggested that he would develop a “Secretary of Business:” This ‘new’ government department would act as a “one-stop shop” instead of having for “dealing with things like getting loans to SBA or helping companies with exports.” Go Figure!!!!
What is the purpose of this Globe article? To play the Race Card, like it always does?
