Default "The Black Code": Why Obama Still Owns The Black Vote

July 14, 2011
By Lloyd Marcus

Despite an unprecedented 39% of Americans believing our country is in permanent decline and Obama's approval rating down in the 40's, Obama still owns the black vote.

I watched a television program reporting the impact electing a black president has had on black America . Black America responded with tearful celebration. Black children chanted his name, "O-ba-ma! O-ba-ma!" Clearly, Obama was black America 's and the liberal mainstream media's ultimate American Idol.

The TV program showed Obama's image adorning t-shirts, tattoos, and everything in between. Winning 96% of the black vote, Obama was truly black America 's impossible dream come true.
Black America's passionate adulation for Obama was so intense I expected them to sing Hosanna in worship of their messiah. I felt like a little kid timidly raising his hand from the back of a classroom.

"E-E-Excuse me. Has anyone even considered who Obama is as a person and what he will do as president?"

According to the TV program, Obama is great for America solely because he is African-American. The program producer's neglect of mentioning Obama's agenda leaves me to conclude that they thought it irrelevant.
I questioned. Why are my thought processes so different from most of my fellow black Americans'? Why did I choose to look a bit deeper into the content of Obama's character rather than my critique of the man stopping at his skin color?

The answer: I am not submissive to the "The Black Code." Most blacks grow up adhering to an unspoken, subliminally understood Black Code.
You must kick the butt of any white person who calls you the "n word."
You must never let a white person beat you in a fight.
Relationships with whites must be kept at arm's length maintaining a silent “us against them” mindset. Blacks who appear too friendly and comfortable around whites are viewed with suspicion; their blackness in question.
My natural instinct to relate to people as individuals rather than through an invisible wall of race has been a source of criticism all my life. My family and friends have ridiculed me for having "too many white friends." Today, I realize my ability to relate to people as individuals is a blessing.
What I am about to say most children instinctively know, and yet, it is a concept extremely difficult for many adults to grasp. Good people and bad people come in all colors. Thus, it is wise to judge every human being as an individual.

The Obama Effect has been amazing, baffling, and frustrating. Why do many of my intelligent black family members, friends, and associates bow in worship of this man even though most of his policies clash with their Christian faith, principles, and values?

Then, it dawned on me. The Black Code.

n loyalty to The Black Code, many educated entrepreneurial blacks turned off their brains choosing to ignore Obama's destruction of their country. Then there are other black Obama supporters who are fellow social justice zealots and loyal to the Black Code.

Al Sharpton and the usual suspects along with their sycophant clueless puppy dog white liberal media exploit the Black Code at every opportunity.
Exploitation of the Black Code is the left's strategy to defeat the Tea Party and get out the black vote in 2012. Their strategy went something like this. "I got it! Let's call the tea party racist. We'll accuse them of opposing Obama's race rather than his agenda to fundamentally transform America . Instinctively, blacks will flock to the polls in defense of their brother against those white Tea Party rednecks."

Johnny Cochran brilliantly exploited The Black Code in the OJ trial. Cochran proved himself to be a master of misdirection on the level of Houdini. He made the original focus of the trial, a husband practically beheading his wife and mother of his children, disappear. Magically, the OJ trial became about America 's original sin of slavery, the mistreatment of blacks over the years, and affirmative action justice.

Cochran had blacks so fired up and united against white America , they forgave OJ's extreme violation of The Black Code. Not only did OJ have too many white friends, he even married a white woman. Still, black America embraced OJ as one of theirs and they were not going to let white America punish him.

This is why OJ's "not guilty" verdict sparked a roar of black rejoicing heard around the world. Black America's jubilation over the verdict left me disappointed with several of my respected black family and friends. I found myself alone in my disapproval thinking, "I don't get it. Why are they celebrating a man getting away with brutally murdering his wife?"
The emergence of Obama as America 's first black presidential candidate automatically activated The Black Code in the hearts and minds of most black Americans. Obama's socialistic ideas, anti-America associations, and friends were irrelevant. Once again, I found myself the odd man out with family and black friends.

Similar to the movie Invasion of the Body Snatchers, black America 's ability to reason ceased. With glazed-over eyes, black America became zombies repeating a mantra dictated by The Black Code, "Must support the black man....Must support the black man....Must..."
Consequences for violating The Black Code are severe. I boldly proclaim myself to be an unhyphenated American rather than the politically correct term, "African-American." It never occurred to me my statement would be seen as a violation of The Black Code.

Folks, you would be stunned by the level of hatred, including a death threat, I have received from fellow blacks for simply calling myself an "American."
Forces demanding loyalty to The Black Code are extremely powerful, intimidating, and potentially dangerous. Black racist minster Rev. Wright scolded blacks not submissive to The Black Code, saying, "I am tired of Negroes who just don't get it!"

I am a Christian. My loyalty to righteousness and truth trumps intimidation and any deep-seated loyalty to skin color.

Obama's social justice agenda is evil and toxic to freedom, liberty, and America . I will keep praying for God's guidance as how to inspire my fellow black Americans to liberate themselves from The Black Code -- removing the scales from their eyes, allowing them to see and embrace the truth.
I am confident come November 2012, Barack Hussein Obama will not receive 96% of the black vote.

Odd how bam bam is half white and to many/most who live by the black code that's a big no no.

But they dismiss that and embrace the black. But what they're actually embracing is the type of so called social justice bam bam wants to inflict on America.

This type of so called social justice is seen as, not taking from the wealthy, because they look at white America as wealthy. But is seen as taking from white America and given to them.

This is the fault of people like fat Al and Jesse the big mouth jackson and those like them. The black community needs to stand up against racism if it's ever going to stop. I call them out just as we call out the peaceful Muslims to police their own because they're only hurting themself, not me.

A post I made in CF concerning this.


Quote:
To the Black folks who have gotten past sins of the past and to those who look at everyone as a person first and not a race.

People like this are doing you a terrible injustice and it's up to you to stop it. As a white man, I cannot do a thing about it. I, we, have tried. We have apologized for things we didn't do and had no hand in, nor did most of us support it. We have given and provided money to those who were always free people with the rights we all have.

We have prosecuted and jailed, though sometimes not timely, those who committed crimes against you. We marched with you, we cried with you, and we carried your battle across the country to change what was wrong. We died, we lost brothers and fathers and fought our countrymen for you, so that you may be free.

We fought side by side with you in wars and cried when you gave your life for our country as you cried for us.

We gave you special privileges, we sent your children to school, we gave you jobs over ourselves. We made it wrong to say ******, even in a joking manner, and put ourselves in many instances at the back of the bus.

We redistricted our cities and states so that you could be represented in government.

What more can we do?

No, it's time you put a stop to this. If you truly believed and/or believe in what MLK stated and gave his life for you will stop this nonsense. If you do not..........you have became them. Or do you read his words believeing they are ONLY for you? That's not even close to the truth.

Don't make me look at you differently if I don't know you. Allow me to allow my children to play with yours if we are neighbors. Allow me to invite you to my home.

Don't make me become what some of our ancestors were. Because that's where it's headed if it's not stopped.

There will always be those who hate. Some people I'm sure hate me. Some hate me because I'm white. Some white people hate others because they're black. But it's not the norm. Don't use it as an excuse any longer.

Treat me like a man, you will be treated like a man. That's my only promise I can make. Don't force me to break my promises to you or myself. because I will always side with what's right and just no matter which side that may be.

The Democrats have owned the Black vote for my entire adult life, long before Obama. Where's the news in this?

Yep. A 5.4% increase in black voters in 2008 (almost triple the historical trend).

I'm certain that the largely increased numbers and the fact that 95% of blacks voted for him was due to the fact that they supported BHO's policies.

Wonder how many racist white people voted for McCain just because they didn't want a black guy in the Oval Office.

Quite a few actually. Obama won only 85% of the white Democrat vote, despite winning the overall election in a landslide.

Local Exit Polls - Election Center 2008 - Elections & Politics from CNN.com


In terms of ALL white voters, Kerry and Gore both won 41%. Obama won 43%. Obama Beat Kerry and Gore with whote voters, yet took only 85% of white Democrats.

At the same time, McCain did WORSE among Republicans than Bush in either 2000 or 2004. Bush won 91% and 93% of the Republican vote. McCain took only 90%.

IIRC Obama won 95% of the Black vote in the US.

So does this mean only 5% of the Black population are conservatives?

Blacks sometimes call themself conservative yet vote dem. I have suspicions why, none of which are racist, but I won't go into them. Will is better at that than I.
So basically there were people who never voted in their life who did vote this last time. But without the white vote from dems and pubs who voted for him he didn't stand a chance, so when people like Joecool claim racism it makes them look like racists themself. That may work with some folks but not with anyone of any intelligence.

But I did find this, I don't know it's accuracy!

Quote:
According to a 2004 study 13.7% of blacks identified as "Conservative" or "Extremely Conservative"[4] with another 14.4% identifying as slightly conservative. However the same study indicated less than ten percent identified as Republican or Republican leaning in any fashion. Likewise, a recent Pew Research Center survey showed that 19% of blacks identify as Religious Right.[5] In 2004 the Pew Research Center indicated only 7% of blacks identify as Republican
I do know there were some black folks I work with who never voted in their life but did this time. But I don't believe all the typical non voters will show up again. They made their statement and the wealthy ones are still wealthy and the poor ones are still poor. Nothing much has changed except for the ones who are now without a job. so I feel those people will for sure stay home.

What I don't understand is the Black population of the US is only 14%, even if every single one voted that still wouldn't get him elected.

In 2008...all liberals & many independents voted for history...not the CIC.

Obama's election was an assemblage of minority special interest groups who felt that the white, pro-business, pro-defense interest of the Republicans didn't mesh with their take-care-of-people-and-the-planet-first agenda.

Most of the first time voters went to Obama, and then he got all of the gays, most of the latinos and the Jewish voters. Many of the elderly thought he would protect medicare and social security. All the anti-war folks and the anti-religion groups all went that way as well.

Appeal to enough minorities and you get a majority.
