Why don’t white liberals vote for black politicians?

It’s hard to evaluate Matthews’ slander inasmuch as it contains no facts. But if it’s conservatives and “the white working class in the South” who are burning with racial hatred, why don’t white liberals ever vote for black representatives in their own congressional districts?

Black Democrats apparently can get elected to Congress only from majority black districts, whereas black Republicans are always elected from majority white districts: Gary Franks, J.C. Watts, Tim Scott, Allen West and (we hope!) Mia Love.

How come white liberals won’t vote for a black representative? Why can’t a black person represent Nita Lowey’s district?

Democrats do nothing for black Americans except mine them for votes, ginning them up with tall tales about racist Republicans. This week, a guest on MSNBC said that Republicans’ idea of foreign policy is to go to war with “one of those brown countries over there.”

This is in contradistinction to Obama, who simply wants to impoverish the brown people over here. Have you seen the black unemployment rates lately? (They’re hard to notice, since the NFM keeps them hidden in that vast warehouse with the Ark of the Covenant.)

The august New York Times recently explained that illegal immigration has no effect on unemployment because illegal immigrants compete only with “native-born workers without a high school diploma.”

As noted by Vanderbilt law professor Carol Swain, author of “Debate Immigration,” that means black workers. Illegal immigration, she says, harms blacks “the most because they’re disproportionately low-skilled.”

In liberals’ view, blacks don’t count. They aren’t — in The Times’ words — “the bulk of native workers.”

According to The Times, Obama’s black supporters were dismayed at a White House meeting last year when cards were passed out to campaign donors with talking points about how Obama had helped various groups. There were cards for women, Jews, gays and lesbians. But no talking points for how Obama had helped black Americans.

So Joe Biden tells a black audience that Romney wants to “put y’all back in chains,” and MSNBC hosts claim opposition to Obama’s re-election is based on “racial hatred,” and the Democrats believe their work is done.
