The third installment of the Black Politics topic focuses on our attitude towards Black Republicans and the Republican Party and how it effects the Black Community.
The 3 Questions
1. Do you feel that Blacks are brainwashed into voting Democrat?
2. Are Black people too dependent on the government and the services they provide?
3. How do you feel about the TEA Party Republicans and why?
Herman Cain was amongst the leading candidates for the Republican Party nomination for President early on in the GOP race. This wouldn’t seem so odd, considering that we now have a Black President, except for the fact that most people who are Republicans and Republican affiliated are “elderly White men.” The principles of the party seem to unabashedly go against the wants and, in some cases, needs of the Black Community. Yet, a Black man was leading in the polls. When asked about the Black vote, Cain replied that Black people were brainwashed into voting Democrat. This, of course, ruffled some feathers in the Black Community but also sparked serious discussion concerning why Blacks really have ceased to vote Republican anymore. Is it possible that Black people actually think that the Republican Party contributes to the destruction of the Black Community?
