I always find it interesting that the democratic party seems to have such a strong hold on the African-American vote.  Black conservatives are quite often attacked by the media as betraying their race.  Although Repblican senator Allan West, while his comments were somewhat extreme, has an interesting take on this issue

It often seems as though some democrats and liberals want to maintain power by encouraging the entitlement culture.

The truth is people don't often bite the hand that feeds them.  There is very little question that african-american voters will trend toward Obama in 2012 even if Herman Cain does by chance get the nomination.  I believe the question will be one of turnout.  Will voters turn out for Obama in the same numbers they did in 2008?  It remains to be seen but I think it is doubtful unless there are major changed on the econimic front in the next few months.

well, now that herman cain is out of the race we will never know. It's a shame that Cain was forced out like this.  These woman had no proof.  Reminds me a little of anita hill back in the clarence thomas days.  These claims didn't slow bill clinton down, and they had proof of his extra activity.

me being a young african american republican at the age of 55yr's honestly and heartedly feel that  the political demograph of both parties has become an unfare balanced scale between stones on one side and sand on the other each weighing a ton primarilly due to the entertainment sector's know exsisting late 1960 to early 1970's adopted socio/political mindset which if  most recall the time period!! The real winner's  were individual non-politcal idiologies and the loser's were the American children
