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.

#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

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.

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 deputy pulled over Hill on U.S. Highway 140 in White City and handed him a $260 ticket for improperly using his headlights, saying another deputy had seen the flashing lights from behind the UPS truck and alerted him to stop the log truck because of the signaling.

Shutting down a speaker, or a professor, or a book with which you strongly disagree is nothing new. Indeed, if there’s anything really new about Brandeis’ disinvitation to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, it’s that they invited her at all, no matter how briefly. If the school’s donors took freedom seriously, they’d cancel their contributions. But the key to understanding Brandeis is that it has been this way for half a century. Banning Ayaan is indeed the fulfillment of a famous call to censorship by one of the most famous leftist philosophers of the last century: Herbert Marcuse, a Brandeis professor who

Zeituni Onyango, President Obama´s illegal alien aunt, died this week of cancer and other complications. I hope she rests in peace. America, however, should be up in arms. Auntie Zeituni is an enduring symbol of all that is wrong with this country´s immigration "policy" -- or rather, its complete lack of a coherent, enforceable system of laws and rules that puts the national interest first. She was a beneficiary of the welfare state run amok, enabled by bipartisan fecklessness. To the bitter end, she bit the hand that fed her with predictable ingratitude and metastatic entitlement.

When Brandeis University withdrew an honorary degree for Ayaan Hirsi Ali after a student-professor firestorm branded her an "Islamophobe," the campus in effect declared itself an outpost of Islamic law, American-style. Officially, Brandeis is now a place where critics of Islam -- "blasphemers" and "apostates," according to Islamic law -- are scorned and rejected. Not that Brandeis put it that way in its unsigned announcement about Hirsi Ali´s dis-invitation, which notes: "She is a compelling public figure and advocate for women´s rights, and we respect and appreciate her work to protect and defend the rights of women and girls throughout the

Recently, Copenhagen Zoo shot a young giraffe named Marius with a bolt gun, publicly dissected it—like a hanged criminal in eighteenth-century England—in front of children, and then fed the remains to the zoo’s lions. Marius was killed, the zoo said, because there was no space for him, his genes were already well represented in European breeding populations, and he was therefore a surplus animal. Despite offers from other zoos and even a private individual to take Marius, the Danish zoo wanted to avoid the possibility of inbreeding and thought that euthanasia was the best solution.

A multiple stabbing attack by a lone perpetrator in a Pennsylvania school, in which more than 20 were wounded, has everyone crying for more metal detectors in schools, and for more guns in the hands of teachers, other school personnel and even students. Now, I’m a big proponent of an armed citizenry. I think an armed citizenry is one of the greatest, most effective deterrents to crime. But when I heard about this incident, my first thought was, “Whatsamatta, weren’t there any chairs in that school?” I believe this particular attack could have been curtailed without a single gun.

Forty years is roughly the length of a working lifetime—and long enough for history to have taken some unexpected turns. And to have proved that long-term forecasts based on extrapolations of existing trends usually end up wide of the mark. The list of failed prophecies from the 1970s is rather long. The conventional wisdom of the time was more than usually unreliable. Example: the Club of Rome´s Limits to Growth report in 1972, predicting that the world was running out of oil and other natural resources. For a while that seemed right, as the 1973 and 1979 OPEC oil price hikes

What´s truly amazing about this decision is that the liberals who forced the issue are praising Ali for her work in exposing genital mutilation, forced marriages, and honor killings - but now want to ban her because apparently, her statements exposing those horrors hurt the feelings of Muslims.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
