You really don't grasp what I am saying

or how people actually work. You are assigning actions to those to whom you have also assigned a label.

It would be like saying "White people are racist" or "Mexicans come to America illegally". Some are, and some do, but you are basically stating that ALL are included in your assumptions.

In the end, WHO GIVES A DAMN?!?! So, a minority percentage of the population voted for a guy because he was Black. Is that any worse than voting for a guy because he is White? Because I GUARANTEE that happened. Is it any worse than voting for a guy because he has a D or an R in front of his name? Because you KNOW that happened. Is it any different than KNOWING that they are both POS's but still voting for either one of them? Because that happened too.

I'll break it down real simple like, so you can swallow this pill. It doesn't matter WHY someone voted for Obama. If someone wants to roll a pair of dice and assign one candidate to odds and the other to evens and make their decision that way, it doesn't matter. That is their right. But for you to say something that basically assigns a decision of even the majority of what you consider a group to the entire group is just plain ignorant. I know plenty of Black people that are VERY critical of Obama.

Do you want to know how simple it is for you to have a valid point? Used the words "some" or "many" or even "most". But when you say "Black people such and such" you are asserting an all encompassing trait that is simply inaccurate. Then again, if you were to state something as obvious as "some Black people voted for Obama because he was Black", then you wouldn't seem nearly as profound as you do when you say "Black people voted for Obama because he was Black", would you?
