obama's people made him appeal to folks who hadn't typically been voting. blacks of any blackground weren't all about some bush or kerry. a lot of the ones who voted for obama didn't vote before, didn't WANT to vote.
why didn't other black candidates end up in office? because obama related to blacks better than they did, it's that simple
and stop saying blacks didn't vote for obama, he got 95% of the vote in 2008 http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/09/opinio...ote/index.html
every black person who voted for obama because he was black = every white person who voted for romney because obama was black
it blows my mind how people pretend to be what their claimed political affiliation says they are, even though they aren't. these people are normal, everyday people 3.75 years then for 4 months before the election they suddenly care about issues and pick a side in an imaginary war

it's most socially acceptable to discriminate against whites though.
