That about sums it up.
The south was Republican before the CiviL War, huh?Also, even in 84' when Reagan got 26% of Democrats, only 9% of blacks voted for him. How brainwashed do you have to be not to vote for Reagan's re-election?
Are you aware black people live in other areas of the country too?
What about Kamala Harris? She’s Democrat and incarcerated blacks.
@Tea-Spaghetti One politician in one state doesn’t change a general nationwide trend.
I’ve seen quite a few racist democrats they just dress it up really well. I don’t think they’re really the good guys. Now Harris is VP I’m disgusted this is the best Democrats could come up with.
@Tea-Spaghetti Your very limited experience isn’t the best way to assess a party but researching broader trends is.
I could say the same for your individual family case vs. general trend for minorities in Democrat-controlled cities. A lot of them are not that good for minorities if you look closer.
@Tea-Spaghetti I know, but I’m saying my family is doing well under a Democratic government so I personally have no incentive to vote a different way. The Asker wanted to know why African-Americans support Democrats and as an actual African-American I had an answer for why I do. But I also addressed larger trends in the black community.

Way too much wrong with that...Just want to make a point that the majority of Latino immigrants are Catholic and likely vote Republican because they're pro-life.
Enjoy living in the Islamic Kingdom of Sweden. It's getting there
Pfft. Welcome to Sweden, where Religion comes to die.
Where did you get that number from? I heard 80% of black men voted for Biden and over 90% of black women.
You do not seem to understand what the purpose of Prop 16 was or what Affirmative action does. I will assume this is just a misunderstanding on your part due to faulty or insufficient research rather than intentionally trying to mislead people. The prop was to restore elements of affirmative action that a previous amendment to the state Constitution outlawed some years ago under a Republican led California state administration. Affirmative action allows what you are claiming it outlaws. Do your research, son.
Pretty sure democrats didn't campaign to African Americans "all the way back to slavery." Slaves couldn't vote. They had no rights at all and were considered property.
@Yanifah Don't be dense, you know I mean they were the slave owners that fought to keep slaves. But also starting the KKK, fighting Civil Rights amendment in the 60's, paying rioters in 2011 and 2020. And whatever else they think of next.
1 in 5 black men WHO VOTE, not total population. Important distinction.
@Yanifah Of course. "Black" people do not vote in higher percentages. Something I made known to my family this election. We pretty much got everyone to the polls. I was very proud.
As you should be! Well done.
Didn't the Dems create the kkk or something.No one thinks that flag means peace.Blm is a violent group
@grega239 Actually, KKK is neither Democrat nor republican. It is just stupid hateful people. If anything, due to somewhat similar points of view on certain areas, they tend to lean towards Republican, but that doesn't mean they all are.No, BLM is not violent. Sadly, they are forced to respond to the violence they receive in kind. I'm not saying it is right, but they are not the origin of the violence.
lol if you aren't sure who you're for you ain't black. xD
Every Republican candidate since the mid-20th century is a racist?
Wow! when did I say that? I’m alluding to the fact that most African Americans voted for Biden this time.
Don't try to twist @NYlatefun 's words. This election ended up not being Republicans Vs Democrats, but Trump Vs an actual human being. There have been good republican presidents, with their good and bad moments, but Trump is all bad, and racism is only one of his sins.
Eleanor Roosevelt flipped them to the Dems. They've been in the bag ever since
