Evidence Suggests African-Americans Voted at Higher Rate Than Whites For First Time Ever

For the first time in recorded history, data indicates that blacks may’ve cast their votes at a higher rate than their white counterparts for the black voter_first time, according to a Pew Research Center study.

The poll states that African-Americans saw a high voter participation rate this year, definitely higher than expected by some pundits.  While  African Americans  make up 12 percent of the “eligible electorate,” African-Americans accounted for 13 percent of the total votes, and probably outpaced the turnout rate of white voters.

“Did the turnout rate of blacks exceed that of whites this year for the first time ever? For now, there’s circumstantial evidence but no conclusive proof,” the report noted. “And there’ll be no clear verdict until next spring, when the U.S. Census Bureau publishes findings from its biannual post-election survey on voter turnout.”

The report continued, “the turnout rate among all eligible voters fell by more than 3 percentage points” but also stating that “blacks ‘over-performed’ at the polls. In previous elections, African-Americans had accounted for a smaller share of the election than white voters.

Pew still says there is not enough evidence just yet to conclude that black voter turnout surpassed the rate of white turnout.

“That still leaves unanswered whether the black turnout rate in 2012 surpassed the white turnout rate,” Pew continued. “If so, it would be a notable denouement to the charged debate this year between state GOP leaders who pressed for tougher laws to deter voter fraud and black and other minority group leaders who accused them of trying to suppress the minority vote.”

    With all the criminal acts perpetrated against the law abiding U.S. born blacks by the criminal actions of police officers, other public servants, it just makes no sense that the black community continues to remain in poverty.

    Oath of Office: “I, (President, Supreme Court Justice, Congressperson, Assemblyman, County Board of Supervisor’s Member, Mayor, City Councilperson, Judge, ), during such times as I hold the office, I, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States (the Constitution of the State of California, Maryland, Illinois, etc., etc.), against all enemies foreign (terrorist enemies of the U.S., illegal immigrants, un-American or un-Constitutional anything and everything, etc.) and domestic (treasonous individuals or organizations, any Police Chief who condones this and the Police Chief’s rogue police officers, unethical or criminal elected officials or public servants, illegal aliens or his or her advocates, un-American anything and everything), and that I will bear true faith and allegiance, to the Constitution of the United States , (State Constitution), and that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties upon which I am about to enter.”

    “There are cases where an individual has been wrongfully treated by his government and about the only way, unless the individual resorts tocourt, and even in some cases the courts are not able to give proper relief, the only area or avenue open to the individual is through his representative. When you find a bona fide error has been made, I suggest that you make a maximum effort to remedy it. This I feel is a vital and important function of those of us in the House of Representatives”.

    …….A better than 90% of the black electorate voted for Barack Obama, while Barack Obama and the Obama Administration do anything but serve law abiding U.S. born descendants of slavery who have been egregiously violated by the atrocities of government.


    President Barack Obama, multiple members of the Congressional Black Caucus, other elected black leaders at the State and Local branches of government, U.S Supreme Court Clarence Thomas, etc., etc., have contempt for the sworn oath of office, the Constitution, the rule of law, and the United States of America.

    There are truly possible and legal ways to acquire assets from the affluent, a business owner, other individuals, private and public entities who or that v*****e the Constitutional rights of U.S. citizens and legal immigrants, that could be used for the benefit of the disenfranchised, but this requires respect for the Constitution, the “oath of office”, the rule of law, and “tort practice expertise”

    …..qualities that the Harvard Graduate President Obama, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, multiple members of the Congressional Black Caucus, other elected black leaders at the State, County, and City jurisdictions of government, fail to uphold as mandated by law and sworn under oath as elected officials or public servants.

    We stated to those wanting to suppress our vote that WE WOULD NOT BE MOVED! They tried everything in the book to stop us and it failed. We showed them.
