Are Young Black Men
Rejecting Obama?

PJ Media, by Walter Hudson

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 12/20/2012 9:17:21 AM

The number of young black men who cast a vote for the Republican presidential candidate in 2012 tripled that of 2008. Hearing this statistic, one commenter quipped, “Is this one of those situations where three times nothing is still nothing?” No. “Nearly 20 percent of black males under 30 voted for Romney, more than three times what McCain got.” That according to Ann Coulter, who gets her information from Pew Research. How? Why? Is there a growing number of young black conservatives? (Snip) Any number of factors could have informed these votes, which deviate markedly from the wider black community

It´s possible. Obama´s percent of the vote did decline from ´08 to ´12. However, the change is so small it doesn´t make a bit of difference.

Those who would vote for ´Bama are in jail or disenfranchised. Those with "real jobs" and living a traditional lifestyle increasingly know the score.

I am afraid that 50 years of the "Great Society" has permanently destroyed the black culture in this country - and a good part of everything else.

#5. From my totally unscientific observations, there are very, very few black guys with "real jobs." Essentially no high line-men, garbage men, machine operators, construction workers, auto mechanics, road construction, roofers. But walk the halls of any government building and you will see dozens and dozens sitting at their desks, fiddling with computers,drinking coffee and flashing the evil eye at white guys. That not "real work."

need to disagree with #7, partially. I do see black faces doing real jobs, i.e. driving garbage trucks. But say "hello" and listen for the accent. Do the same at the DMV or other government office and you get a different response as the woman behind the glass tries to poke at a keyboard with 2" nails while chatting on her cell phone

Just very limited anecdotal evidence, but some of the few black young men I have met are highly entrepreneurial (and not selling drugs, I hasten to add...). Hope and change of the right sort perhaps?

While we all know that tons of black guys hang around street corners in bad neighborhoods or occupy government jobs with no risk of accountability I have to say that is hardly the entire picture.

I work with black people who are mixed in with other minorities and a majority of whites. The head of the corporate tax dept in which I work is black, the guy I support is a black originally from Africa. There are many other blacks - including one who looks like he should be playing football but instead is involved in US taxes. These people are here on merit since this is a for profit corporation. There are also many accomplished black and other minority women.

I won´t say that the company isn´t conscious of trying to "be inclusive" but the people they´ve chosen are there to do a job and I have yet to encounter anyone who isn´t as worth his or her pay as any white person.

Ironically, black men are probably the ones suffering the most under Obama given the employment situation. So it shouldn´t be a surprise that they didn´t support him with the same intensity as they did 2008.

I still believe that when you find a traditional black family (father, mother and kids, perhaps some grandparents) living under the same roof, employed in non-gov´t make-work jobs, they tend to be more conservative and have traditional values. The challenge across the black culture is to support this lifestyle and build millions more like it. Sadly, this will not happen for decades if at all. The black culture is so dysfunctional and it is obvious to everyone but blacks will never acknowledge it for fear of being called "white" or Uncle Tom. Also, rather than talk about the real issues in the black culture, the vast majority of the blacks are looking for something or someone to blame and it WILL NOT be the image in the mirror.

No, they are going to reject Obama. They don´t like what is happening to them under his Administration and if you talk to them in private they do seem to understand his policies are doing the damage. I guess that is a start, if a feeble one.

But reject him? No, a vast majority will support him no mater what. Eighty percent is landslide territory in anyone´s political book.

Rejecting him will happen to his successor in four + years time, whoever that will be.

I don´t see this happening, I see the continuation of the DNC plantation mentality and the increased use of the Kool-aid pitcher. The DNC has and will continue the give away to keep the black community under their control, even if that is bad for them.
The Democrats have spent a lot of time and effort to convince the black comunity that they are too stupid or oppressed to suceed by their own effort. They must continue to be dependent on government (controlled by the DNC) to survive.
The DNC enablers at the NAACP will continue to get the big bucks for their pockets and scam the rest of the community, as long as the DNC provides the payoff they will continue to help keep the masters people on the plantation.

It would be nice to believe that the climate of racism that is being foisted on this country by Obama is being rejected by the ´victim´ class that Obama is building, with the help of the entire MSM.

It would certainly be nice, but I´m not holding my breath.

#29 I thought Herman Cain had the goods, but like the usual politician he was so arrogant he actually thought his whole side action lifestyle would not be splashed all over the world.

As far as any black men ´rejecting´ Obama, apparently none of them live or vote in Philadelphia where not ONE vote in 59 districts went for Romney.

The war on standards

Paul has been writing about the war on standards in various aspects of our society, generally as a means of advancing the interests of minorities (or purporting to advance them, anyway). Now it appears that the decline of standards–indeed, the abolition of any standards at all–has come to the world of college debate. The Atlantic reports: These days, an increasingly diverse group of participants has transformed debate competitions, mounting challenges to traditional form and content by incorporating personal experience, performance, and radical politics. These “alternative-style” debaters have achieved success, too, taking top honors at national

(You always hear and read of a “fiasco,” a “defeat” a “disaster” at the Bay of Pigs, 53 years ago this week. But you rarely hear about the cause. Here it is.) "They fought like tigers," writes the CIA officer who helped train the Cubans who splashed ashore at the Bay of Pigs 53 years ago this week. "But their fight was doomed before the first man hit the beach." That CIA man, Grayston Lynch, knew something about fighting – and about long odds. He carried scars from Omaha Beach, The Battle of the Bulge and Korea´s Heartbreak Ridge. But

Federal Land as a Percentage

The government has no business owning (or administering) all of this land. I am willing to concede federal courthouses and even the national parks to the feds, (even though some of the parks were created as a result of brutal land grabs. Shenandoah National Park which I look out at as I write this is an example.) but why is practically all of the far West run by the Federal Government? Here’s another thing I’ll concede. The feds get a few hundred God forsaken square miles in the northern Nevada desert to do nuclear testing and to dump nuclear fuel. Beyond that? People should own this land.

What can Washington, D.C., learn from a Buddhist monk? In early 2013, I traveled with two colleagues to Dharamsala, India, to meet with the Dalai Lama. (Snip) That same duality was on display in February when the Dalai Lama joined atwo-day summit at my institution, the American Enterprise Institute. At first, his visit caused confusion. Some people couldn’t imagine why he would visit us; as Vanity Fair asked in a headline, “Why Was the Dalai Lama Hanging Out with the Right-Wing American Enterprise Institute?” There was no dissonance, though, because the Dalai Lama’s teaching defies freighted ideological labels.

Oh, Portland. A teenager urinated into one of the city’s drinking water reservoirs the other day. That’s gross, sure, and aggravating—what a brat! But in one of the most spectacularly stupid decisions in years, the city is going to drain the reservoir. (Snip) But is it possible to calculate precisely how illogical Portland’s decision is? Let’s try to put some numbers on it. Several smart people on Twitter quickly did the math and figured that a typical urination of about 1/8 gallon in a reservoir of 38 million gallons amounts to a concentration of 3 parts per billion.

In case you’ve ever wondered, when you take a psychiatrist to dinner (especially a forensic psychiatrist, like me), he doesn’t leave the office 100 percent. No well-trained psychiatrist can. The “third ear” we develop during training – the one that catches meaningful turns of phrase or attempts to be evasive – can’t be left at the office door entirely. When I had dinner with Lou and Linda Pelletier and three of their four daughters, Jennifer, Jessica and Julia, a few nights ago in Massachusetts, I wasn’t trying to evaluate them. They aren’t my patients. But I was listening for discordant psychological

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
