@Sebe. I do not know what you are saying about the majority of Blacks and other minorities here Sebe, but it is not good.
But since you are in a come to Jesus mode, why not finish it? Yes, please enthrall us all here just what it is in the Majority of the Black Race that affords them this overwhelming devotion to the Democratic Party? Is a majority of the Black race easily duped by Democratic Propaganda? What does that say? Is it in the majority of Black folks genes to be genetically predisposed to selective amnesia regarding when who committed such genocidal acts upon them? Are the Blacks such a 'sell-out' to the Democrats because of being provided an avenue to barely feed their families? Or is it all them $65 phones Democrats give out? What does THAT say about this particular demographic's character and voting pattern?
Please be that lone present day caucasion voice that explains the Black experience to not only them but the rest of us uniformed Democrats. And when you do, throw in what that says about YOU. Feel free to include personality shaping experiences of your own that no doubt come into play in all of this to some degree or another.
And after so doing, would you be so kind as to state your Credentials regarding the establishment of your veracity for providing such precise sociological or perhaps what may amount to a peculiar ANTHROPOLOGICAL insight that you possess?
I apologize for the following language but we have to understand the truth that is not being told any longer. The following quotes are LBJ quotes:
“I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” —Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One -
“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”—LBJ
@gacpl. Again...what does all that say about Black folks, if those comments are perchance correct?
Educate me, please.
I too apologize for what I am about to do but I think it is necessary.
N----r is not a reference to one's color but rather one's character and ways.
I've known some very white n----rs.
In this day and age I'm not so sure but that at least half of the N----rs are indeed white.
And yes I've known some black N----rs also but they are in the minority of their black brothers and sisters.
gacpl was quoting LBJ.
@ Funk, Ted, lholmes, PN and ANY person of color that is reading this blog and comments...this topic BEGS for your input here. You gotta bunch of white guys talking about yall.
Please weigh in if you will. Is Tot right about knowing some white N****** and some Black N******? And all the other comments on this Blog pleads for your comments. This can prove to be a very significant learning opportunity for everybody here. The Floor is yours before or after the author of this blog responds to my inquiries.
first of all jimmy, im not talking about anyone, im pointing out the the dems that have gone out of there way to look like they are trying to help are only looking out for themselves, and doing what they can to prevent them from really getting ahead while making them think they are helping them.
I have no problem having a constructive conversation with anyone in regards tour country’s history and the history of blacks. The History Test that Chief has posted is true and comes from the NBRA; however there are some blacks that don’t accept the truth and considers telling the truth against someone in power of black heritage as being brainwashed and going against your own. If whites felt this way what would come of our country since they are still the majority. Obama won a resounding election in 2008 and had over 70% approval ratings for most of his 1st term. His likability kept his approvals pretty high until his, lies; failure to lead and economic results along with Obamacare has now been officially vetted. Thank God for the “Fox News” channel and conservative talk radio because if not for them we wouldn’t have the necessary message to challenge anyone and to even give a credible challenge to anything Democrat. I grew up as a Democrat as most blacks my age did; however I can see credibility in supporting what’s right and wrong with no allegiance to Democrats or republicans. On September 16, 2012 I posted a blog called “Martin Luther King was a Republican”. See the blog here it also has the link to the NBRA and history test that chief has posted.
Great Post Chief we all need to be more open minded and tolerant, IMHO!
".....there are some blacks that don’t accept the truth and considers telling the truth against someone in power of black heritage as being brainwashed and going against your own."
Amen. Thanks for your comments, Funky and welcome back. We've missed you.
Jimmy: My credentials are the same as yours. It's my OPINION - but the answers to the TEST are UNCONTROVERTIBLE HISTORAL *FACT*.
I don't need to defend facts - they speak for themselves. It is the Democrats who try to spin away history that have to defend their nonsense.
So Gentlemen (except for Tot) The Majority of Blacks are susceptible to mass Brain washing and will sell out their vote for a little food and maybe a $65 phone? What are you saying (ONCE AGAIN) about their CHARACTER boys? That is the ELEPHANT in the room fellas!!
You are projecting a profound insult upon their intellectual capacity and character. You all are no different then them Plantation slave owners who also viewed them as inferior humans. Are you so blind as to see yourselves making that same assessment here?
And Sebe, will you please take a swing at these specifics I posted above to you regarding the implications of your 'test' answers?
"But since you are in a come to Jesus mode, why not finish it? Yes, please enthrall us all here just what it is in the Majority of the Black Race that affords them this overwhelming devotion to the Democratic Party? Is a majority of the Black race easily duped by Democratic Propaganda? What does that say?

Feel free to comment also Funk. Are you BOTH CONFIRMING these inherent FAILINGS of Blacks? Are yall saying that this is a Race of people that the MAJORITY OF THEM can be easily duped NO MATTER WHAT WE DO TO THEM??! Enslavement, rape, murder, lynching and burning them, taking their property, denying their humanness??!!!
BTW: I make no claims at being able to accurately portray the American Black Experience. You do tho sebe. I just want to know where your credibility is in all this comes from?
@gacpl. You dam sure are gacpl! By avoidance, self-deceit, failure to walk in another's shoes, or just from your privileged white perspective, you along with Sebe are SLURRING an entire Race of People's ability to reason and are making a profound statement via omission as to the level of their character and judgement.
This is the Cancer of Silent Racism. I see it and I'm a white boy.
And they are EASY questions - all 17 of them. Take the test. Answer "A" to any question and you'll affirm your status as a card-carrying, Kool-Aid drinking, head-in-the-sand Democrat.
It is worse, if that is possible, than the overt displays of intolerance towards blacks. It's insidious and is a virulent poisonous perception that exists in the recesses of your brain.
Ever been in a Retail Clothing Store with a black friend, male or female? Did you notice how the sales attendants seemed to shadow the potential Black customer and not the white one? Ever been to lunch with a group of whites and blacks in some of them off interstate eateries and noticed the attitude of your white waitress or waiter, or where you were offered seating?
Is that just plain ole paranoia on mine and my friends parts?
Jimmy, no ones judging a black mans character akin to brainwashing ; however when you're told the same lies over and over again it tends to sink in and lead to apathy. About ten years ago I thought the Democrats were mainly responsible for passage of the civil and voting rights act and it wasn't true. That led me to start doing more research to include listening to conservative talk radio which led me to checking out Bill O'Reilly and Fox News which my fellow black Americans said I shouldn't. If it's not apathy what legitimate reason does any race vote 85-90% for one party? Obama said on Super Bowl Sunday that there isn't a smidgen of corruption in the IRS Scandal. The Director of the IRS Lois Lerner pleaded the 5th last year instead of testifying; that's way more than a smidgen in itself.
@Funk. You are changing the subject here, brother. This ain't about Obama, the IRS, Bill O'Reilly and Fox News.
It is about the underlying implication of how one interprets Black intellect.
Now MY tongue in cheek moment: Seems you bin brane washed by dat Fox Noos brother man. Lawd have mercy on our peoples vulnuhbilitees to dem white folks words.
Have a good day Funk. Consider coming back...at least to the Center.
"Is that just plain ole paranoia on mine and my friends parts?"
The issue of this test is which PARTY has done what over time. Anecdotal information runs the gamut from both sides of the political spectrum. The point of the test is to identify the hypocrites and their reason for demonizing today's Republicans. They are trying to bury their own HORRID past of racial crimes and discrimination by pointing fingers at the other guy in order to maintain political power and reinforce a stereotype THEY CREATED.
Nope it's not. It is an out and out indictment of the majority of the Black Race's failed thought process: A + B = D. You are dissing Black peoples inability to reach those same Historical Conclusions coming from your own privileged white perspective.
Why do the Majority of Black People, according to you, THINK that way Sebe? What is supposedly lacking in their character that allows them to pull that Democratic lever in the face of such Democratic Evil inflicted upon them by folks of your pigmentation and their 'historical' Party orientation? WHY? Where in the thought process does that mis-connect you have gone to great lengths to articulate, take place in Blacks? When does it take place?
The Black Majority Democratic preference lies not in your words or in the 'answers' to your test? So, where in the Hell does it originate?And, more importantly WHY?!
The questions and answers in this test are HISTORICAL FACDT. If any party or group of individuals are "indicted" by it, then it is HISTORY which indicts them, not me.
Well in my mind, the blog represents indictment by omission of Black's mental fortitude and judgment. You lay out your 'facts' but leave the elephant in the room.
Jimmy, I'm not changing the the subject nor am I brain washed by any decent or indecent white folk. To prove my point(s), I give factual examples such as the Obama quote about the IRS. Here's another one Obama stated around 4M had signed up fo Medicaid because of Obamacare which is a total spin of the wheel. Research proves that around 387,000 had signed up because of the ACA and the rest were renewing their previous coverage as required. The Democrats that you support aren't as honest and trust worthy as you are my friend and all I can do is pass on the truth to you as it is confirmed. I can't quote your words but you did dismiss O'Reilly's legitimate and tough questions as hate and misinformation when Obama actually got 4 pinocchio's for that lie. However you still believe it , Along with a host of apathetic blacks because you all fail to engage, listen, and verify in dialogue from conservative sources. I'm as open minded as anyone on this site and will affirm that I can talk openly about politics and religion with my white friends who I acknowledge are open minded too!
Ok then Funk. Please educate me here, WHY it is that the 'Majority' of Blacks vote Democrat rather than Republican in the face of all the horrible atrocities committed against them by white Democrats? Why is that?
Ok Jimmy here's my answer. First of all I have to acknowledge that you are as educated as educated can be overall, IMHO. Now this leads to the intangibles that you, me or any other caring American can overlook or miss because of our personal experiences, ideology and or apathy. The Southern Strategy that you believe in is untrue and has been debunked, all you have to do is study the NBRA site with an open mind. The Democrats and Republicans haven't flip flopped as proclaimed. Blacks have been apathetic to this fact, the civil rights and voting rights act and refuse to or don't care to do the necessary research to realize the truth. They are being enslaved by Democrats who feel like they are entitled to provide entitlements for them to make it in America. Democrats have
replaced the black father with government entitlements while the father gets away Scott free of his responsibilities. Democrats are enslaving my people with over 70% of the media supporting an anti-capitalist agenda which promotes even more poverty. A substantial amount of blacks are apathetic on how wealth is created by jobs and free market enterprise, we need to focus on how we can make a difference instead of who we can blame. When JFK said" Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country" Whatever happened to that proven philosophy that works!
"A substantial number of blacks are APATHETIC on how wealth is created by jobs and free market enterprise..." THAT'S IT??! A majority of Blacks vote Democrat because of being seduced by 'Demo lies' and ECONOMIC APATHY??
A MAJORITY of Blacks vote Democratic EVEN in the face of all the egregious horrors perpetrated upon them supposedly by THE DEMOCRATS??!!
FUNK. You know I respect you very much.
But Funk, are you not now indicating some sort of intellectual and character short comings of your own people? Are you not saying that a MAJORITY of Blacks lack the capability to separate the Talk from the Walk???
Why did the Black fathers, you note above, abandon their wives and vacate their responsibilities? Is this yet ANOTHER instance of Black Majority APATHY towards their own? Why did the Black men leave?
So, a book of foodstamps and public housing are the evils still enslaving your people? Is not this the familiar Republican 'Plantation argument' used to counter Democratic Advocates?
And if so, does it not indicate some massive Black sell-out of personal integrity and values?
This is how you see your people?
Jimmy don't twist my words, I'm not talking about intellectual shortcomings when you have the Lamestream media supporting the Democrat anti-capitalist philosophy and demonizing Republicans day in and day out at over 70% ratio you to believe it all and how are you really gonna make the best decisions in this matter if you fail to keep your supposedly enemies closer than your friends? Of course I'm not an expert; however I have extensive experience in growing up black, poor and treated unfairly by some racist white people and I don't blame you or any other white person that I meet in the future for past oppressions. I also have extensive experience from living in several states and cities in the US along with living in several country's socializing with whites, Asians, Germans, French and several other race and cultures of people. When I go home I witness the apathy over and over again. We as a nation (everyone) without these experiences don't truly understand how great we really have it here in America and continue to BMW. Our poor has the ability to rise out of poverty like I did and giving handouts and entitlements suppresses that ability, it replaces the need to go for our own prosperity I'm not selling out anyone I'm articulating the actual experiences I encounter within my lifetime. I make my decisions based on factual data. Jimmy in 2014 white folk don't owe blacks anything other than being treated as an equal citizen of the United States of America.
Oh and Jimmy why don't you ask yourself why blacks vote 85-95% for Democrats when no other race is even close to those numbers. If the Democrats were actually that good the overall numbers would be closer aligned, IMHO!
Funky: so true.
"Well in my mind, the blog represents indictment by omission of Black's mental fortitude and judgment. You lay out your 'facts' but leave the elephant in the room."
Remember - I didn't devise the test; it was put together by the National Black Republican Association, which I'm sure is an organization that the Democrats wish didn't exist. But it does exist, and the reason they devised the test and posted it online undoubtedly was that THEY wanted to point out the real "elephant in the room": that the GOP gets a bum rap on race, and today's Democratic party is perpetuating the demonization purely for their own political gain.
I'm not twisting your words here Funk. I acknowledge your OWN personal accomplishments in life. You describe YOURSELF and how you have overcome obstacles you have encountered. Very healthful attitude in the face of hardships thrust upon you. And your people. However, you seem to diss them for not being able to do what you have done! Not just a few of them, but 75%-90% of THEM! I find that to be an incredible racial slur....more so due to its source and not some group like say...the Aryan Nation, or the White Aryan Resistance, or the Skin Heads. This language says: Blacks are not EQUAL!
But Funk, having said that, you still seem to want to equate what YOU did in your life while at the same time indicting 75%=+ of Blacks of being intellectually impotent in realizing they are literally selling their souls (not bodies this go round) via a forfeiture of their character and mental fortitude to THE MAN.
THE MAN has bought their souls...with food and shelter. THAT Funk, is essentially your argument.
Jimmy, I understand what you say comes forth with honesty and is how you interpret it; however it is much broader than food and shelter that so much that I don't think I can type it into words for you to understand me as clearly as I intended for you.
OK Funk. I suggest we take a road trip to Colorado. You know, hang out for a couple days, get laid back and solve some of this stuff. It's bound to work.
