Title: Why are Blacks Democrats?

African Americans are Democrats. Since 1968 no Republican presidential candidate has received more than 13% of the African American vote and surveys of African Americans regularly show that upwards of 80% of African Americans self-identify as Democrats.  However, understanding why African Americans are such steadfast supporters of the Democratic Party is not as straightforward as it seems. Although committed to the Democratic Party, African Americans are actually one of the most conservative blocs of Democratic supporters. As political scientist Tasha Philpot’s 2017 book title suggests, African Americans are “Conservative but Not Republican.” Understanding how it is that African Americans have been able to maintain such strong support for the Democratic Party despite their increasingly diverging interest with the party is the subject of our new book, Steadfast Democrats: How Social Forces Shape Black Political Behavior.

When the white raciest moved into the Republican party, blacks moved out.  Make sense, right?

I will play. Blacks are Dems because they are the only party that pays them attention. The GOP is constantly trying to diminish their role in elections. Black people don't forget that.

y04185, perhaps you can find another forum to ask this question. :shrug:

I mean how many times and ways are you gonna ask this question? If you're not satisfied with previous responses then obviously its YOU that can't accept those responses.

Move on.

You certainly won't answer why you are a GOP supporter especially with the criminal in the WH.  You have no problem with him.  It tells people a lot about you.

Also the GOP gets defensive when it is bought up how past racial inequities continue to affect Black folk and people of color today.  They want to act like everything is okay now.  The GOP has also allowed the Democratic Party to own Civil Right issues.  The GOP is typically silent or in opposition of issues dealing with equity, justice, and civil right for Black folk and people of color.  And the GOP is very patriotic but how often do you see the GOP celebrating the diversity of America and the accomplishments of ethnic groups in America despite the ugly racial history of our country.

More from the article

Supporting the Democratic Party has come to be understood as just something you do as a black person, an expectation of behavior meant to empower the racial group.


In the book we argue that in an effort to leverage their political strength as a minority group in a majority based political system, black Americans have come to prioritize group solidarity in party politics. This partisan loyalty is maintained through a strategic social process that we call racialized social constraint, where by support for the Democratic Party has come to be defined as a norm of group behavior. In other words, supporting the Democratic Party has come to be understood as just something you do as a black person, an expectation of behavior meant to empower the racial group.

Adherence with this norm of Democratic Party support is insured through a set of social rewards and penalties which recognize compliance and punish defection of racial group members. Interestingly, it is the social and spatial segregation of black Americans that makes all this work.  It is through racially segregated spaces that blacks become aware of the importance of the party norm for the racial group. And it is within these segregated spaces that social rewards for compliance and penalties for defection can come to define an individual’s social status within the group. The result of all this is that to the extent that any individual black American values their relationship with other black Americans, they will continue to act in accordance with the group norm of party support lest they find themselves socially isolated.

I find this to be very shallow and superficial analysis. It seems like the author is saying that Black folks are afraid to join the Republican party because they are afraid of what other Blacks would say :shrug:

Respectfully, I often hear the complaint that the Democrats take our votes for granted. However, when I ask what is it the Democrats should be doing for Black people, I get a response that is vague, lacking specificity or a specific response that is far fetched or legislatively unrealistic.

Additionally, it's hard for me to say that Democrats take Black votes for granted when the party nominated and elected the First Black President.

Furthermore, there is a Congressional Black Caucus. If Black folk had a universal desire for specific piece of legislation, Black folk should communicate it to our representatives in the Congressional Black Caucus.

Finally, I don't think there is any universal agreement among Black people as to what  legislation they want enacted in exchange for their vote.

Your response is a non-sequituror or is non-responsive to my inquiry.   I ask you to explain why how we would do better by having our own party.You responded by asking by saying I need to show show evidence of what Democrats have done for Black people. :shrug: That is not an answer to my inquiiry.

However, I will respond to your question.The 1964 Civil Rights Act. Democrats support affirmative action, more specifically, consideration of race in college admissions and government contracts. The overwhelming majority Black members of Congress are Democrats. This is because democrats supported drawing districts which would allow the election of Black Congressional members. Because of affirmative action, there are more Black professionals like doctors, lawyers and engineers. The Democratic Party nominated the First Black President. The Democrats consistently support the idea that racial diversity is needed at all levels of government.

One observation, one answer and a comment...

OBSERVATION: y04 starts something and then has NOTHING substantive to contribute.  He thinks he's accomplished something.

But, here's the answer to the question:  Why are Blacks Democrats?

ANSWER:  For almost the same reasons, Blacks were Republicans for nearly 100 years!!  The prime reason being that the OTHER PARTY was antagonistic to the interests of Black folks as we perceived them to be.

COMMENT: I don't understand why this is so difficult for folks like y04 to understand.  (Really, I do understand, but I'm being polite.)

BUT,... Just like clockwork, y04 feels it necessary to recycle this subject.  He PRETENDS that the question has not been previously answered IN DEPTH.

I've asked y04 and Olds..t more than once if (since they complain that most Blacks vote Dem) they are critical of Blacks voting overwhelmingly for Repubs starting in the 1860's.  They NEVER respond to that.  Shows that they are simply being hyper-partisan and are not interested in history or truth.

It is truly sad when you really look at it.

On one hand, these 2 "people" throw out this slop every few  months, the rest of us commence to breaking the facts down to the nth degree, then these 2 mooks act all obtuse as if they don't understand the English language when we intelligently break it down...Which would mean they are dumb as all get out. And they love for people to repeat themselves over and over for some some stupid reason(s).

On the other hand, I think this is the only way they can amuse themselves, you know, being ugly arse dumbarse trolls. Because let's face it, unless a miracle happens before life here on Earth ceases to exist, things politically between the 2 main parties (neither one being perfect) have shown what they are , who they are, and generally what they do.

This rehashed, obtuse question results in the same answers every time. It ain't gonna change (barring a miracle, as I previously noted). Like these 2 persons, this [subject] is tired.

Iceman and Maroon & Gray,

I appreciate your comments.  Truly.

I must say that there is NO 'glory' or even satisfaction in demolishing the arguments of those two because I feel like I'm playing alongside Lebron and Stefan against a pre-school team of mental midgets.

Candy from a baby.

Anecdote: Still looking for intelligent life in the Conservative Universe, I have recently sought out #ErraticTrump supporters (hat tipped to SoFlo for pointing out that they are NO LONGER Conservatives) to engage with them on Facebook (and a couple on RedState.com).

A couple of other O-dan posters, who are FB Friends, can attest that I have displayed patience, but...

What I have found is that they, JUST LIKE y04 and Olds..t, CANNOT engage in fact-based, logical discussion/debate.

Most of the time, they come right out of the box with FALLACIOUS arguments featuring, primarily:
- DEFLECTION, including "whataboutism"
- NAME-CALLING (Ad Hominem)
- STRAWMAN
- STRAIGHT OUT DISHONESTY (including about what was typed in PLAIN VIEW of everyone!!!!!)

One additional tactic by the white ones I have engaged with is a refusal to deal with what is presented to them, especially questions, but wanting me to respond to their questions.

I told one of them that I didn't know what kind of 'privilege' he was used to enjoying but that isht wasn't operative with me.  For the other one, I used one of y04's "old statements" (he had to stop using it when I turned it back on him a couple of times), "There will be NO line-jumping!!"

CONCLUSION:
Y'all, there is ONLY ONE EXPLANATION!!!

MOST OF THESE FOOLS ARE IN A CULT!!!

MOST OF THESE FOOLS ARE IN A CULT!!!

MOST OF THESE FOOLS ARE IN A CULT!!!
