Sure some did.

But that is not what we are discussing here. Also, I never suggested that the OP was being racist. I said either ignorant of individualism or intentionally divisive.

As far as who voted for whom and why, it is impossible to know intent of action unless it is expressed. You can make ASSumptions all you want, but they are worthless. Did some Black people vote for Obama because he is Black? Sure. Did some White people vote for him for the exact same reason? Probably. Did some White people vote for Romney just because he is White? Just as likely as your assertion. In the end, who cares? The vast majority made their decision based on either a lack of knowledge or willful ignorance of truth. On both sides. I'd be willing to bet that more than one person made their choice based on the results of a "Magic Eight Ball". Same result as many other ignorant choices.

People do not share a hive mind with others of like skin color. Millions of individuals made individual decisions for whatever reason, whether you agree with the methodology or the result, or not.
