As popular as Bill Clinton was (especially in the black community), even he only netted 82%.
I'm sorry, but there's nothing defensible about this. It happened and no one should view it as acceptable.
"Only" 82%? That sounds like a high percentage to me. The bottom line is, blacks overwhelming support Democrats....black, white or other, and they have done so for decades. I don't doubt there were blacks who voted for Obama because he's black, and that's unfortunate, but I think the numbers have more to do with party affiliation than race. Also, I can assure you there were plenty of whites who merely voted against Obama because they believe he's a black nationalist socialist from Kenya. I live and work amongst them.
