  •  It does make sense - (0+ / 0-)

    - that a black voter might think that a black president could be more understanding about issues that are important to black people than a white president.  Particularly true once the candidates, both black and white, make their views on issues known.

    But at the same time, it is clear that if Alan Keyes (a black Republican) was running against a white Democrat (say Al Gore), don'tcha think more black voters would side with the Democrat - simply because that candidate could be more understanding of issues pertaining to African Americans?

    And am I wrong to assume that for every African American who voted for Obama because he was black there had to be at least three white voters who voted for Romney because he wasn't the black guy?  

    If so, then why all the attention to blacks voting for blacks?
